Is Daily Uploads Hurting Your Subscribers?

Image by Yanalya | Freepik
One thing I think we can all agree on is the internet can be a cause of information overload. Consuming too much information might be a source of stress for anyone trying to keep up with all their interests.

An obvious example is YouTube. Many content creators on that platform feel a need to engage with their audience on a daily basis in order to not to lose momentum and to keep their channels growing. But is it really necessary, and could daily uploads be hurting rather than helping their channels?

I haven't studied the figures so I can only pose my question based on personal experience as a YouTube consumer. However, it's unlikely that I'm alone in how I interact with my channel subscriptions so the question becomes, are there enough people like me to suggest daily uploads could indeed be hurting your subscribers.

Currently I'm subscribed to 67 YouTube channels. Which I suspect isn't that many compared to someone who doesn't limit their time on Youtube to a couple of hours a day (give or take an hour here or there). Not all of these channels release daily content but a good proportion of them do. It's very easy for me to fall behind and not be up to date with each channel's latest video.

In fact, if I miss a day, or too many of my channels make videos 15 minutes or longer in length too often, I can get behind very quickly. Before long I'm drowning in a backlog of unwatched video with all my channels four or five days ahead of me.

The only way to really catch up, if I want to watch everything, is to binge watch as much as possible as often as possible, consuming videos at a rate faster than my entire list of subscriptions can release them.

Unfortunately I really don't have time for this so at some point I have to start skipping videos. Which is incredibly frustrating because I don't like doing this and, as a video creator myself, I hate to think people who actually want to watch my content are having to skip videos just to keep up.

Even worse is if I find myself skipping too many videos too often from specific creators. There comes a point where I realize I just don't have the time to keep up so I unsubscribe. I'll also unsubscribe if a creator makes too many long videos (15 minutes plus) on a daily basis because it just takes time away from keeping up with my other subscriptions.

My point is daily uploads are a major contributor to information overload. Releasing a video every second day, two or three times a week, or even once a week may actually be better for subscribers. It gives them something to look forward to and allows for some time to build anticipation. Most importantly though, it gives people time to keep up with all their subscriptions.

There are many highly successful Youtubers that only release videos once or twice a week. There are even successful Youtubers that post once or twice a month. Daily uploads are not essential to a successful, self supporting YouTube channel.

If you are posting daily videos are you missing out or losing subscribers because you're asking for too much of their time? I think it's certainly possible.

The Armchair Entrepreneur - The Worst Kind of Entrepreneur... Apparently?

Entrepreneurs, just like Artists, seemingly have a 'snobby' section who like to draw the line of what actually constitutes an 'entrepreneur' much closer to them than near any of the riff raff, wannabes who dare suggest they might be one too.

I came to the term 'Armchair Entrepreneur' independent of the knowledge that they were a real thing and, based on my research (because I couldn't believe the idea hadn't already been thought of), discovered Armchair Entrepreneurs are almost universally disliked as people who claim to know everything about business without having actually put any of that knowledge into practice.

Just like your typical armchair sports person who yells at the TV during the weekend games.

As I got deeper into my research I discovered the people who dislike Armchair Entrepreneurs with a passion would often go on to describe what being an Entrepreneur actually entailed, listing off a lifestyle that sounded quite honestly like a living he…

Guest Post: MY SOOPER DOOPER NEW CONSERVATORY/ART STUDIO!

Today's guest post is by Artist, Writer, and Mental Health Advocate, Jo B Creative who writes for her blog, Creating My Oddessey.

You should see our (almost) brand new conservatory, half of which is my art studio. 'Lucky me!' I think to myself. Not every creative bod can boast that. It's HUGE! Like a giant greenhouse.

We first moved to our pleasant cul-de-sac house - great for raising kids - when our son, who's on the cusp of thirty-one, was four. One of the main reasons that we wanted it was that, apart from its location on the fringes of a historic market town in rural Hampshire, UK, it had a sizable conservatory looking onto the back garden. It was brown wood framed and had a corrugated transparent roof sloping down from downstairs ceiling height. On the face of it, it doesn't sound that glamourous, but we loved the idea of a conservatory. Luxury! I even liked the red brick walls which it was built against - the original exterior of the house - and the light …

Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Onesie #Sadbatman

Although we haven't seen it clearly for sure, film director Kevin Smith (who has seen a well lit, color photo of the suit), says Ben Affleck's Bat costume is pretty much identical to the Frank Miller, Dark Knight Returns suit. If that's true then Ben's world weary Batman will be going 'old school' and be wearing his underpants on the outside (as he should).

getpaidtodraw.com - Your Questions Answered.

Is it a scam? Is the sales message too good to be true? Can you really sit back, relax and get paid thousands of dollars in residual payments?

If you've discovered the site getpaidtodraw.com and have been looking for someone who has bought this product before taking that leap then this review will peel back the glossy sales message and give you the answers. Prior to buying this product I came across much distrust and misinformation about getpaidtodraw.com by people who hadn't purchased it. There was a real need for information so I decided to take the leap and make the purchase specifically so I could write this informed review. Note that I am not, in any way, a getpaidtodraw.com affiliate.

For this review I will be focusing on the getpaidtodraw system which includes; the ebook, instructional videos and database along with access to the systems author Jules Camber (who replies to emails as 'Jamie, President of Champ Entertainment, Inc and Beats365, LLC'). I'll touch …

Kickflips Continued and Trying Backside 50-50s on my Skateboard Slider

I have been thinking about my board slider and how I might feature it more in my video skating sessions. I don't use it very often because all I can do on it is really short nose slides and fairly short board slides.
In order to use it more I need to get used to doing grind tricks on top of it but because it has fairly large coping I don't find it easy to lock my wheels into it - even for a basic grind trick like a 50-50. As such, ollieing onto it (which I would do without a second thought if it was a concrete curb), seems like quite a dangerous proposition.
However, after some consideration, I decided lifting my front truck onto the slider and then trying to leverage my back truck on in a kind of backside 50-50 slappy motion, seemed doable. So that's what you can see my try in my latest driveway skateboard session in the video below.
Naturally I did spend some time trying kickflips first as I'm still trying to land these. Unfortunately my mind was more focussed on trying…

Boom Crash Opera Born Classic But Not Again

Boom Crash Opera are an Australian Band that reached the peak of their popularity in the mid to late nineteen eighties. They are a band that I knew about at that time but was never really excited by until they released their ill fated double album Born and Born Again in 1995 (Album cover pictured).

At the time of its release I was very much into emerging Australian musical acts and was also looking out for new sounds that were different and had kind of a futuristic/electronic sound. Artists that I was buying at the time included; Swoop, Nine Inch Nails and Pop Will Eat Its Self. As well as a really interesting release by David Bowie, the concept album, Outside.

Born was a fairly radical departure for Boom Crash Opera (BCO). The first single, Gimme, was often compared to the sounds of Gary Glitter, particularly his single, Rock n Roll part 2, because of the pounding drum loops. Watch the video below.



My favorite single from the album is dissemble which probably went nowhere on the char…

Ice Sculptor, Aerialists, Mount Lofty, and Hahndorf, Adelaide - Queen Elizabeth Cruise 2020

Our first full day at sea on our Queen Elizabeth Cruise was anxiety inducing. For the first time since, I can't even remember we would have no internet access on our mobile phones for at least 24 hours.

If you're new to TET Life, or this is your first post, I'm blogging about a cruise ship holiday my partner, Enigma, and I went on at the end of January 2020 for eight days.

Day 2: Sea DayA 'sea day' is exactly what it sounds like, a day spent entirely on board the ship at sea. All cabins have full room service included so we began our day by ordering breakfast in bed as the ship made its way to Adelaide.
Although the food you can order to your cabin is pretty much the same as what you can get from the various restaurants, …
