Time Away, No Time to Play. Now it’s Update Time.
Just going to say this right now. a part of this is an update, while the some of it will kind of be like personal blog. I just want to get some things off my chest and I’m still terrible at using Tumblr. Also I pay for this site monthly, so I better use it! Now there’s a lot to talk about.
I finally put a new video up on the main channel discussing the Wii U and it’s games. I made a separate post about it here on the site. It’s the first video in a long while. I haven’t really done anything for a few reasons; life, unmotivated, and other hobbies. Life is just that, life. My health decided to hate me to the point to go the Hospital. It was nothing long-term though it did scare me quite a bit. After that, I had to move closer to my full time job. It was during this time motivation went downhill.
Lack of motivation is probably the largest factor, and the biggest pain to deal with. In the recent Wii U video, I joke about a Persona 5 review that was supposed to come out earlier, which is true. I did want to write one. Though every time I looked at the screen, my head just got filled with everything I wanted to talk about. There was so much I wanted to discuss that I felt super overwhelmed. Feeling lazy and apathetic towards the video, there were several times I sat down to write but just couldn’t. This feeling has been showing throughout the whole channel. It affected me getting the Wii U Video out before July and even writing this post. It is a problem with no quick solution in sight.
I bring this up for several reasons. I believe that one factor of being unmotivated is the amount of pressure I put onto myself with the channel. When starting the channel, I made a goal to do one video a month. Eventually this pressure just burned me out. I did not run out of ideas, rather making videos just stopped being fun for me. I do not plan to quit making videos. It helps me with speaking my mind
Now What? or the skip to this section to read about the channels' updates
Let’s talk about what’s going to happen now. YouTube videos on the review channel will no longer be a monthly thing. Instead I’m going to work on them, putting them out when I feel they are ready. I haven’t forgotten about he second channel or the twitch channel. I’ll be streaming on twitch, however it probably won’t be regularly. It will be whenever there’s a game I want to showcase but don’t think would make a good video. The second channel will be used to put anything that doesn’t fit on video-game to be review on the main GuardianGamers channel. I might try to make some random content I find interesting. I’m still debating whether to do something on Tabletop Role-playing games. It’s one of the hobbies that has taken my time away from producing content. Either way, the same rule applies, videos will be out when I’m confident in their final product.
Now the last part thing I want to discuss is about the website. I hope to start writing a bit more. I’m hoping it gets my creativity/motivation going. Expect a bit more personal blog posts every so often.
Well, that’s all I have now. If you looking for a TLDR, Health problems, lack of motivation, and trying something new. It’s more quality over quantity from here on out. Now I am working on a new video for the GuardianGamers channel. I’ll see you guys when it comes out.
