So at the moment, I am trying to figure out how I can do everything in my life since Jack left the shop.
I realised yesterday, I can't.
I cant run a shop, online stores, 3 you tube channels, all the conventions i attend, writing books and enjoy any form of social life I have.
I have already stopped accepting new comic cons until I have more manageable staff.
I am debating moving my store to a more manageable rent space to remove the pressure there but there is also no point making business decisions until I know what is going on with the pilot I filmed for in London.
If I had a normal 9 to 5 job it wouldn't be so much of an issue but my shop comes home with me because it has to. I can not remember the last time I went to sleep before 3am because I'm doing so much work and STILL not getting it all done.
So I have finally admitted defeat and think I need to reduce my time spent on YouTube. Making sure up to 3 videos a day are filmed, edited, uploaded, tagged, scheduled with thumbnails adds up very quickly. It wont be forever, but for now. I thought I would ask you guys for advice and ideas first.
So here is what I have decided so far.
VLOGGING CHANNEL : Nothing changes, I get so much joy from doing my vlogs that even though I do not earn anything off them, it really doesnt matter, Its so easy to film and not too timely to edit compared to my main channel videos, plus I love the community that has built up with in that channel.
GAMING CHANNEL : So I brought the channel back with the intention of doing a video every day. It doesn't seem like too much work but honestly, at the moment, dedicating that much time to play, edit and upload is actually not possible (for now) but I can easily still do the channel with one or two videos a week and it's still great so no issue there.
MAIN CHANNEL : ????? --- This is where I struggle...
I used to do one video a week, like story times, and videos about me etc or my movie reviews etc. And, to me, that made sense because other youtubers do that.
Doing only one comic review a week doesn't make sense to me, which is why i did a video every day of the week. A video a day also made a clear brand and time schedule but it's just too much stress and pressure for me at the moment.
However this is where I am struggling at the moment. I don't know what to do with this channel right now. I don't know whether just to make the channel about me again for now and just upload once a week etc or if that would lose subscribers?
For some reason, the schedule HAS to make sense to me but I also wonder if i am putting far too much thought into this. URH.
What do you guys think and please be brutally honest. If I stopped the comic review for now, would you think my channel would be losing something too important? Is that the only reason you watch that channel? Would you be glad for more 'TorAthena' content? Do you have an answer for my schedule dilema?
