About two weeks ago I went on a much needed break with some great friends to visit Daylesford and Mt Macedon, and of course I decided to vlog the experience. I find it so much more interesting to film vlogs whilst travelling just because my own life is so boring in comparison hehe.
The trip did help give me a bit of time to think about my life in general right now, and if you watch the vlog you’ll know what I mean based on my rambling at the end of the video.
But to summarise, I’m starting to feel burnt out. I work an insane number of hours, and my career is really at a point where I need to invest the time and energy into it. I do enjoy what I do, but anyone who is in the industry I’m know how stressful and mentally draining it can be (there is a reason majority of people in my industry at young).
As a result I haven’t been able to create the sort of videos I truly love to make, otherwise know as Book of Fables. So to prevent my channel from being too staggent, I panicked and start putting together more “talking to the camera” sort of videos. And while I enjoy making those sort of videos, it’s been brought to my attention that not everyone enjoys watching them and quite honestly I haven’t really been bringing my A game to my videos like I used to.
The reality is I just don’t have the time nor mental energy to create elaborate videos the way I used to on such a regular basis. So instead, I’ve decided to take some time away from my main channel, take some time way from all the pressures that come with YT and just focus on slowly putting together a plan to create videos that I personally enjoy and am proud of.
If being on the internet has taught me anything is that you can’t please everyone. I’ve had a ton of people love what I do, but I’ve also had many people bash me for what I do. And there is really no way I can create content to please everyone, so I’m aiming to make content for me.
I’m not really sure how long I’ll stop posting videos on my main for, 1-2 months? Maybe longer? I’ve had a couple of pre-filmed videos that I will probably throw up since they are already filmed and slightly time sensitive.
Don’t worry, I’m going to continue focusing on my blog and vlogging channel for now! And hopefully when I come back to the main channel it will be in an exciting way 🙂
