Shame on me for not publishing an article for a few days. I have been busy and I have been experimenting with streaming. Plus, I thought that I wrote that article of Broken Sword 5 later. That game got an update today. I’m pretty excited to see that actually since that means they might do something about those awkward dialogue gaps. Well, let’s get right to the updates.
I’m going to admit that I miss making video’s. But I simply don’t have the time to edit, render, upload, maintain a channel… So, that’s why I decided to quit YouTube. But more on that later.
I announced it on my personal blog, since I am going to publish this article on ButtonSmashers as well, that I stream. For the people who missed the link, here it is again: http://www.twitch.tv/nekojonez1.
Anyways, I’ll mostly stream Minecraft. Since the easy stream integration is such a blessing. Since I can still make video’s but I don’t need to edit them and all that. And it also keeps the charm of video’s. If you want to see my past broadcasts. Click then here.
I stream some other games when I feel like it. Yet, the quality can be better sometimes. But I blame my ISP for that. The internet I get sometimes bugs out and the quality drops because of that.
So, I was out of town yesterday and I watched a comedian preform. It’s my favorite comedian and I had an extremely fun night. It was one of his best shows. One of the best shows of the ButtonSmashers blog are the podcasts. With one of our most recent members, Allahweh, a 2nd podcast has been added to our shows.
In one of the last episodes, Q (the owner of ButtonSmashersBlog) was a guest. And surprisingly, they talked about me. They talked about me stopping YouTube. Here is a link to the start of my segment. Yet, I advice to listen to it fully. Anyways, I need to correct Q on something.
I already posted a comment on the video to correct him. I might just said it wrong to him or just said it the wrong way but the reason why I quit YouTube is simple.
First of all, I was never planning to delete my YouTube channel. Those memories, I don’t want them to get lost. I said that I was going to delete some left over footage since I didn’t felt like editing it and uploading it after my “I Quit” video. It turned up to be glitched out footage anyways.
The reason why I stopped YouTube wasn’t because I was out of creative juice. I had to do with it but I felt tired of making video’s. I felt more like being an admin of a video page instead of a video creator to me. I still enjoy creating video’s so that’s why I stream. But the editing, rendering, uploading and such was just too much to be bothered for me.
Also, I felt like I had to make video’s and such to gather an audience. And as soon as I realized that I didn’t had time to combine everything anymore, I had to drop something. And since I felt forced to make video’s I decided to drop it.
My blog feels more rewarding then my channel and that’s also why I continued blogging instead of making video’s. And as it turns out, my blogging actually improved and I had now more free time to finish games and finish my college work in order to maintain a better blog.
Lack of articles
Indeed, there is a lack of articles when you compare it to the future. Normally I publish a lot more articles on a weekly basis. There is a reason for this. My exams are coming around the corner. After the Christmas holidays, I have around 14 exams to finish. Yup, 14.
So, I have to slow down the articles. I stream here and there since that doesn’t really prepare prep work. But don’t worry, I’ll still write articles. Only less of them until I find a bit more time.
In a recent update for my blog, I started to post a list of what I’m currently playing on which device. It’s possible that I’ll publish an article about that game in the future.
Next week will be another rough week. I also feel a little bit sick again. A slight headache and coughing. Hopefully I don’t get sick while I’m supposed to study for my exams.
Anyways, thanks for reading. Now you guys are totally up to date with what’s happening. Hopefully I see you around at my next stream or blog! Take care.
