So what will you do with the extra time?
What you will see quickly is writing a bunch of reviews I have been putting off, and planning new items like Talking Tech. I also need to put time into relearning and practicing video production. This means taking time from something, and some current regular posts are the only real thing that can give.
So, it might look like I am backing off from the site. While the announcement is relatively short notice, I don’t want to give the wrong impression by going quiet.
What I am actually trying to do is ramp up the work I am doing for the site. Working from home is giving me an excellent opportunity to do all of this, so I am grabbing it.
What’s the end goal? Do you want to become a YouTuber?
No. Not in the way a lot of people want to become YouTubers.
I want to create more videos, but the goal is to hopefully make my content better for you. While I can write forever, the written word doesn’t always convey what I feel. Also, why should you invest that time if you don’t know who I am?
Today people tend to have videos/podcasts in the background rather than read. You get the benefit of the content while doing something else. You also establish a connection with that person that you can’t just by written word.
As an example, I quickly recorded the below.
A little rambling, unscripted, audio quality – my video production template needs work. But what was better for you – reading my intentions, or seeing me give my reasoning?
But I want puzzles to stay, and I don’t want you to make videos!
Then please, let me know! If I am preparing to put time and energy into something you don’t want, I am not past the point of no return for either of us.
I want JohnHQLD.com to be a community, not just my written word. Help me make something we can all take part in.
And no Alpal, I won’t stop talking about video games :p
