It’s been almost 10 months since I first registered this site, and I think it’s finally turning into something I’m happy with. While I still have quite a bit of work left to do and intend to make some changes later, I’ve enjoyed working on it more in the past 3 months than I ever had before! Since the audience is growing (slowly, but surely), I’m going to guess you guys are enjoying some of the changes I’ve made as well.
One change, in particular, has been held up for far too long. When I registered this site I also went ahead and made a YouTube channel for it. I knew, even way back then, that eventually I would want to start making videos to add more depth to the content here. I’m happy to announce that I have finally recorded the very first video and am currently editing it! It will be posted this week and I’ll let you guys all know (via Twitter most likely) when that happens.
I’m excited and filled with trepidation at the same time. I’ve realized over the course of the past week how much respect real YouTube producers deserve! Between lighting, sound, editing, writing content and even just deciding what to put on the channel there is a huge learning curve that I’ll have to overcome. I say this for 2 reasons. First, I want any of our readers that regularly produce the YouTube content we all love so much to know that I think you guys are AWESOME! And, secondly, because I want you to forgive the (very) amateur videos I’ll be posting while I try to figure out what I’m doing.
The first video will introduce what kind of content the channel will have and, as a bonus, you will get to see my beautiful face in all it’s glory! I know you’re all excited(note: very sarcastic – in case it didn’t come across that way)! I do want to thank all of the readers of this site, though, for the support you guys have given me over the past few months!
I’ve gotten to a point where I am ready to bring back a couple more of the most popular categories we’ve had on the site. The “Week-in-Weird” is up and running and is already our number 1 section on the site again, just beating out “Dad’s Gonna Lose It”. Two other categories that I have dearly missed are the entertainment and product review categories. These two categories were always popular and I always had fun doing them.
Movies and shows that my family and I watch will be reviewed, of course, in the entertainment category. For product reviews I will be limiting them to mostly toys for children and tools or appliances that have made my life easier. I will never give a positive review for a product that I do not support 100% or do not personally own. I will give you the honest truth about them to the best of my ability.
The same will go for movies and TV shows. If a show, or movie, was terrible and at the end I just want that portion of my life back so I can use it for something better, I’ll tell you. I hope you guys enjoy the new content and design changes coming to the site! As always, let me know what you think about the posts you read here (How else can I make the site better?)in the comments and follow me on social media, or send me an email, if you just want to say hi! I love hearing from you guys!
