So yesterday I announced that I was back and focused, but really didn't go into a whole lot of details about what that meant. One of the things I am really focused on is creating YouTube content. A couple years ago, I started making videos for fun. Those videos turned into a couple ongoing series that I honestly think could of gained some traction if I had given them the proper time and dedication that it takes. I didn't and the videos series floundered and finally I stopped altogether. So what's changed?
The truth is that over the last few years, I have been through one personal issue after another and if you have ever experienced a period of time like that, then you know what that will do to you. If you have not, then I hope you never do. I do feel though that I am finally at a point in life where I can really put a serious focus not just back to Holy Shock as a site, but also to producing content such as Let's Plays.
A few weeks back, I started watching a buddy stream, DanDebacle. Which if you have never heard of him, go check out his stream. He focuses on flipping items in WoW and a bunch of random games that are really fun, but seldom get the attention they probably deserve. One day, we were talking about his stream and he was kind of down about things, although he may have not realized it. He was trying to figure out what games to play and such things. The conversation progressed to talking about how well he had actually been doing on picking up followers. The one thing though that hurts him is that he is really, really inconsistent with when he streams, and as a good friend I pointed it out to him.
It kind of hit me later when I was thinking about Holy Shock and I had to admit that I was guilty of the same thing... inconsistency. Sure I can say that life is tough and things come up, but at the end of the day I still find time to do things that I want to. So the questions came down to what do I really want to do? I thought about it for quite some time honestly. Going over past ideas, rereading posts where I discussed changes I wanted to do, and looking at old videos I had published made me really start to think about what could have been. Now I don't want to lie to myself and say that I could have been the next big thing, but there were a lot of ideas that I had written down that I have seen other people start doing and it seems to be going quite well for them.
So I said all of that, to arrive at this point right here. Holy Shock is back and I am more determined than ever before to dedicate myself to this site and to the content that I publish. It may not be the best, it might not be the most cutting edge, it probably will be filled full of mountains of misspellings and incorrect tenses, but by the Light it will be. So strap yourself down for the ride of your life and let's see where this thing goes!
