How are you doing? I hope you are all doing well.
Remember in my last journal where I said I'd try and keep everyone up to date with what is going on with me and my life by posting a journal every weekend, either on a Saturday or Sunday, what happened to that am I right?
You can watch the current Ronnie's Roundup by clicking right here:
It's been 2 weeks since then and things are going...okay. I've been off work for two weeks which you would think would give me plenty of time to record new Let's Plays for my channel and hang out with my friends and stuff to record new videos for the channel.
Well instead, I've been kinda stuck in an artist's block. I hear you saying "But Ronnie, you're not an artist, you just make crappy let's play videos and acoustic covers" and to that I say, I kinda am an artist, just not in the general meaning of the word. Also, they aren't crappy. Well, they aren't that bad.
I am still a creator, just of different content. So maybe it's Creator's Block. I dunno.
Anyway, my point being is, I am stuck and finding it hard to motivate myself to record new let's plays, finish current let's plays and record new acoustic covers.
I don't know what would be good to let's play or what song to do an acoustic cover of so I am just stuck.
When you are making videos and making a YouTube channel, you are trying to build an audience and make videos that would appeal to everyone so a lot of people can watch them and thus your videos get more views and your channel gets more subscribers. But I've learnt that it is hard to build an audience when you don't know what videos would appeal to everyone, specifically each viewer.
Because of this, I am trapped in an never ending loop of un-productiveness. I think I just made a new word there but what I mean is this:
I think about what game to let's play or song to cover, I decide what to let's play or cover, I try to record the let's play or cover, the process of recording the let's play goes wrong and so I stop recording or I record the new cover but during the editing process I don't think it is good enough and so stop working on it. This then leads me back to thinking about what game or song to let's play or cover.
You get the idea how this is really bothering me as I can't escape from this circle of un-productiveness and don't know how to.
If you have any comments on this matter and have any suggestions or ideas for me to combat my artist's block, please let me know in the comments below!
So...thanks for reading! Don't be afraid to talk to me and note me!
See ya next time!
