I've decided to take a "sabbatical" from Youtube for a while. I'm not sure when I'll start it, but I know I will end it the first of May. Why? There are multiple reasons, but here are some of the most important:
1) I need some rest.
I've been doing this for pretty much three years straight now rarely missing more than a week at the most between postings. Though some of these are just simply posting videos other people have allowed me to, even those require some upkeep and moderating comments (and even the draw to see how people are responding) keeps me occupied. This is not to mention the ones I make from scratch. It will be good to have a break from this.
2) Give others time to catch up on views.
Some have complained that they haven't seen a bunch of the old videos I've posted because everytime I go to post a new one, they watch that instead of an older one they want to catch up on. There are only so many hours in the day. This will give everyone a chance to catch up on the over 500 videos that are now posted there.
3) A new blog format is coming.
Someone graciously offered to revamp my blog so this will be a good transition time for all that. I'll give more details on that later including who's doing it so you can possibly hire them to do yours, too.
4) Law school.
It's crunch time. I need to devote time to that and the internship I'm doing.
I'm going to still post a few more videos that I've been planning before I take the leave, but after that, it will be just the videos that are on there now along with these new ones for about a month - month and a half. Also, I'll still be posting on Twitter and such so I won't be completely gone from the internet. I still haven't decided if I'll do a quick vid for a April Resource of the Month, but I'm leaning now toward no.
Thanks, everyone, for the endless support you all give me on a daily basis. I appreciate that very much, and the Lord uses it to keep me encouraged. God bless.
