Thinking of a Dedicated Review Thread

A bucket of anxiety
So I've been feeling a lot better as of late and am feeling up to making YouTube videos again. I've been working on legitimizing my film business and so far everything is going quite smoothly, but if I'm going to do YouTube again, I thought of using a phone avatar instead of my drawn avatar so I could have more time to create original stuff. I'm currently working at a small review of an old Spongebob episode to test my avatars out and I was wondering if I should make a dedicated thread out my refreshed channel. I'm on anxiety medication so I can handle criticism much better these days and I still wish to improve my ability to entertain. But if so, should I post my videos or should I post the scripts of those videos, since a lot of the members here prefer written reviews?

Hmm, can't think of a reason not to do both. Most people here do prefer written, but I also recognize we're unusual in that regard (most people are gravitating towards video). I'd say do what feels right, but yeah, a written version probably suits this crowd slightly better relative to most places (and is something I've tried to cultivate around the margins, too).

I barely read anything outside of scientific and news articles these days, so Iíd watch the videos and prefer that. You could just post the video at the top of the post and then provide the script/transcript under it.

Iíve always appreciated news agencies that do that when Iím in a situation when I canít use audio.

That's a great idea!



I'd love to see your reviews. I only read text reviews, I don't watch video reviews...So like the others already posted, how about posting both video and text reviews.



I'd try it and see what happens; this is a good place to experiment and see how the reaction goes. Personally, I'm a fast reader and have no interest in youtube talking heads, which make my eyes glaze over, so I'd definitely prefer text.

I had my own review channel a while back, but, honestly, the effort and reward ratio really didn't work for me, even when I posted it on several different sites. That's an important part of deciding whether it works for you.



For me, I care more about the audio quality. Graphics are cool and all (who doesnít love a pie chart?!), but I prefer to have a clean recording with solid writing every day of the week. Itís why I love talk radio.

Luckily I have a new microphone!
