The Only Constant is Change…and Daniel Faraday.
This week I bring you a 60 second trailer for the 5th episode of PoPS. “Please to enjoy.”
I always do this to myself. I announce a release date and then have to run like hell to make the show as good as possible before launching it. I’m pretty hyper about this one and so is the audience—based on the response I’ve received to the trailer since I put it up this morning.
The “change” I speak of in the title is a change in my general attitude vis-à-vis the weekly vlog-like video updates I do for our audience. I think they’re pretty much going to disappear after the release of episode 5. I’ll probably do one every once in awhile just to let people know that we’re still working on it, but with much less frequency. I’m not entirely sure what that’ll do to my following, but I’ve reached a point where I’m okay with that. I never wanted to be a vlogger, that’s kind of what I’m turning into, and since I absolutely don’t want that, it’s time to make a change. The other half of the title is a LOST joke—in case you weren’t a fan.
Craig, from our show (also a very successful vlogger), thinks the interruption of the updates is a very bad idea in terms of keeping the audience happy. If that’s the case, so be it. I just want to make the show and I’ll keep making it, if people want to watch it, they will. If they were tuning in for a vlogger, they can throw a theoretical rock on YouTube and hit a thousand others. (A Thousand Others would be a good name for a band. They could just play songs about LOST.)
I’m also unsure what this may do to my blogging here, since a large portion of the interest has been the video updates, but every hour I spend on an update is an hour I lose working on the show, which is another hour I have to make up for instead of spending time with my wife and friends. When I weigh it like that, I’d rather spend it on the show, which I actually consider to be worthwhile; unlike my vlogging, which is half-hearted at best.
If you’ve been reading these for a while, you might have already seen this coming. Well…it’s in the mail now. Postage due in August.
Thanks for reading, guys.
