Now that it has been over a year since I closed my YouTube account, I have settled down and considered my feelings about leaving. The last year has been a long and stressful one for me. Even though it has been tough, I think I have finally grasped at what I want to do with my show, Everything About Reality TV.
I started podcasting back in later 2014. The initial stages and testing of Everything About Reality TV didnt pan out so I continued on with my YouTube career. you will remember that I was still in the midst of my web series, The Entertainment Man Talk Show. Youtube was starting to take its toll and ultimately, I was starting to feel burnt out. This was when I started considering podcasting more seriously. Now, thinking back on it, I am glad I ended the Youtube channel and started my podcast. I have continued with the podcast and successfully covered the fall 2015 season of the Amazing Race 27 and Survivor: Second Chances along with Hell’s Kitchen as well. The podcast also covered Big Brother Canada 4 & Survivor Cambodia.
As time went on, I planned not to cover shows like Hell’s Kitchen, Masterchef, Masterchef Junior or Masterchef Canada. I have nothing against those shows. It is just hard to cover everything in a limited time frame. My podcast has continued to grow. I have recorded episodes on Survivor Millennial’s Vs Gen X, Big Brother Canada 5, Survivor Game Changers. Currently, I am recording episodes on Big Brother 19 and the Amazing Race Canada. The podcasts have now grown to 57 episodes and I am not stopping there! Recently, I decided to start a weekly podcast called “The CBOTW Show” recapping TV Shows from 80’s to the 2000’s. Comedy, drama, action you name it!
Now as for the blogging, I have been blogging since my ‘The Video Projects Team days. After leaving YouTube, I got more into the blogging on chrisbontheweb.com. I love talking about what is on my mind, stories in the local news, local events or the crazy weather we have had here. Around the middle of June 2017 I connected with Soapbox and offered to blog for them. They said yes and I have been with Soapbox ever since. I love being a part of the platform and connecting with other bloggers. I may only post 1 – 2 times a week but I am always logging onto the site daily to see what other great posts are up to read.
Feel free to connect with me on Social Media as well on chrisbontheweb.com. With blogging I find I have more of a freedom to express my opinion compared to when I was on Youtube. I truly am blessed to be where I am today with both the blogging and podcasting. I feel that I am making the right connections and connecting with so many amazing people. I am truly very humbled when I think how well I have done in the last year. The future of my podcast hasnt been written yet and I am playing it by ear with each new season.
