Losing Interest — Grinding It Out

About to close the first month of January 2020 and viewership is at an all time low. I’ve been posting almost daily content here on Medium and have been pretty consistent with putting content out on Youtube on our Tech Tutorial Channel. After doing this for almost two months, you’d think I’d be at a million followers by now. I’m kidding, I know that nothing in my life is worth that many followers. . . at least not just yet.

While it might be a little discouraging to have a significant drop in views, I’m going to continue to post daily. I’m going to continue on my journey to be the best source of technical content with respect to Scratch and later this year, various other technologies. I’m documenting for myself and for the community. There will be a day when people will come and I’ll be ready for them. Until that day happens, I’ll continue to post daily and share my thoughts with whoever is listening.

Alright some updates for today. Wife woke up early to record our next video that we’ll be posting tomorrow (1/30). We focused on blocks that control the sprite’s look. . . also known as Looks Blocks. If you want to learn more about how to control the look of your sprite, be sure to check out our video tutorial on the subject. Tomorrow, we’ll be recording Sound Blocks which should be a lot of fun.

Since my viewership is at an all time low here on Medium, I think it might be time to get off the platform and move all my content over to my wordpress site. I’ve already started to develop the appropriate pages to host this “behind the scenes” content and also created a place where I can write full length technical tutorials. The goal here is to drive traffic across my brand in an environment that I can control a little better. It’s cool to write here on Medium, but I think it will be better when I can create the full experience for my community. I plan on having all the details fully hashed out by the end of this week and start posting/migrating all my posts over to wordpress starting next Monday.

I’m excited for this next step. I’ll be creating a ton of tech tutorials and my wife is going to be creating complementing video tutorials for each of those written tutorials. Once we get the ball rolling, we’ll expand to other topics and hopefully one day launch our very own digital agency or freelancing firm.
