I’m back doing Octav1us, starting with a new review uploaded shortly. I’ll do a little catchup video too <3
I think the main problem I had was that I was looking at my videos and critiquing them as if this is actually my full time job, and therefore they should be perfect. It isn’t, it’s a hobby – and for now, that’s all it can be.
I’m doing a full time MA, which is supposed to be 5 days a week (3 of them days of lectures), and I’m working 3 days a week on top of that to pay the good old rent there. Obviously 5 plus 3 = 8 which will go some distance to explaining why I’m gonna have to really cut down on my interaction as Octav1us.
I have worked so hard to get the channel to where it is now, and I will keep working hard, but my videos can’t be as sparkly and exciting as they were before. I’m not just gonna start doing a bunch of letsplays only (although I’m probably going to record myself playing scary games still), but my videos are going to be shorter and less researched. I’m also going to make a concerted effort to do more collaborations since that takes the stress off me a little bit 🙂
However, I simply can’t be replying to every single tweet, every single email, every single Youtube comment. I just can’t do it. I know it seems like a little thing, but honestly – it all piles up. I will do the best I can, but before when I was scrabbling to reply to everything because a few people got grumpy it was really making me very ill. If I was doing this full time, ABSOLUTELY I would reply to everything. But I’m not so I can’t 🙁
I guess what I’m asking is, please be patient with me 🙂 And don’t you stop leaving me comments or tweets – even if I don’t reply cos I never get round to it, I promise I read every single one and they make me smile.
See you soon!
