End of The Week Updates [03-30-2024]

           Another long week is over for us. It has been a barrel of stress for us all. As you know this week I was named the new Chief Operating Officer, also known as the COO. I am so thrilled and excited Chris named me for this role on the team which covers the same jobs as before, helping out the community, answering emails, Facebook and Twitter messages. But also help with planning events both Online and in person. 

           I know Chris hasn't had the time to finish working on Power Rangers Podcast for The CBOTW Show but spent yesterday and yesterday night and today on watching the series to try and get it done. Now Entertainment Man Podcast is edited and ready for release tomorrow afternoon and he has to still put the episode information up on this very website. 

           He will be talking about this next week but reason for no blog yesterday, he gave all of us the day off including him even though he said he's going to be working on the season but got busy with other things I guess. This also reminds me to remind you no blog on Monday and we will be running on a 5 day week for blog rather then the normal 6 day blog but we will be on a 5 day as we're off tomorrow and Monday for work wise and taking some very well earned time off. Also Chris will be doing a split streams between Facebook and Instagram so be sure to check those out! Those are the updates and rather a very long update but I will talk to you all at the end of the upcoming week and wish you all a very Happy Easter from all of us, here at ChrisBOnTheWeb Media.

Our Process With Podcasting

              This blog post was inspired and requested by Reena who was on my podcast several weeks ago so big shoutout to her. Podcasting is a lot of work from the pre-production to the production to post production so I want to break this blog down to 3 parts from our perspective:

Pre-Production: Getting an idea whether it is a topic or getting a guest for Entertainment Man Podcast or a movie or TV show to recap for The CBOTW Show, it all starts with an idea. The creating podcast notes for the episodes and it comes from the idea, I have to come up with at least 4 - 6 pages of notes especially for Entertainment Man Podcast. Now The CBOTW Show comes with a movie or TV Show, then watching the TV Show or movie and taking notes.

Production: Is getting the episode recorded. It is basically sitting down and recording. Now not every episode for Entertainment Man Podcast is LIVE on the air but other then that it is pre-recorded. Production side, Entertainment Man Podcast is both YouTube-Video/Audio ONLY and The CBOTW Show is just on Audio ONLY.

Post Production: Editing the video/audio only for Entertainment Man Podcast and Audio Only for The CBOTW Show making sure it is to my liking for publishing. Which brings to the next point I use my Corel Studio Video Studio for editing the video and Audacity for the audio. The next thing I want to mention is scheduling the podcast, putting in the tags both on YouTube and Audio, also posting it on the website on the day of. The last part I want to share is clipping the best moments, even though I've had hate but that's been the best part of the views on the channel and gets people more interested. The clips though are just for video side of things, YouTube/TikTok and sometimes Facebook/X/Instagram from time to time. 

              So that is OUR process as podcasters in our network and what we go through a week to week basis. Quite a journey that we go through together. Again big shoutout to Reena for this idea and I will talk to you all tomorrow about The CBOTW Show that is bothering me at this moment.

Getting Back To Our Regular Schedule

             I know we've gone off tandem with our schedule with no stream but I am planning to start streaming on Facebook and Instagram maybe every week and I need to get back to that and I know it's been awkward that there hasn't been a stream and I have technically been very busy person, had an event over the weekend through another community, which was amazing but I realized I should of done one Friday but fell asleep early.

           However this weekend I will be making an effort to stream to both Facebook and Instagram this weekend catch up with you guys on everything that has gone on in the last 2 weeks and it has been a chaotic mess trying to get things done and I will in time. So be on the lookout for a stream on Instagram and Facebook this weekend I hope to have some updates for you guys how far I am with the seasons. That is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for another post!

Adding an additional blog to the schedule!

             My team and I have been trying to figure out what to do about Saturdays as there isn't anything really going on and everyday we have some kind of updates and discussions going on social media and Saturday is the day nothing is really happening and made me wonder if we should actually put the end of the week on Saturday and it really makes a lot of sense as Saturday is technically end of the week. We've had this conversation since the end of last year and we are finally pulling the trigger on this. 

            I know this means one extra post per week and that's OK, but the question is how is this going to affect events as that is starting up in almost a month from now and I will be out and about so I still have to work out on that part of the blogs and this means 24 blogs per month and more content for you guys. I will even try and get Kels involved more in the blogs from time to time especially now that she's the COO of this company she can definitely post whenever she wants. We need to get a few events going this year. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for another blog post.

What's My Role as COO (Chief Operating Officer?)

                  My job as Chief Operating Officer is the day to day operations online which means answering the emails, social media messages. I am also in charge of setting up the online events for the community whether it is on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/YouTube. I am in charge of the Discord server community so this way Chris doesn't have to stress out about running the Discord server on a day to day basis. 

          These are the basic jobs that I do as the first COO of ChrisBOnTheWeb Media but I also forgot to mention is that I will continue to do weekly end of the week updates as normally. Which I'd like to mention is moving to Saturdays according to our CEO of ChrisBOnTheWeb Media and he told me to mention that he will talk about it tomorrow on the blog but this change is effective immediately. I will talk to you guys on Saturday for the "End of The Week Updates" and thank you to Chris for the promotion and elevating me to COO, I love this community and being involved with such a wonderful community.

End of The Week Updates [04-22-2024]

              At least this week, I am ahead of schedule and I have the blog post out on time. Anyways there is a several updates to report to you all:

1) The first thing is Chris has been busy recording and editing this week. He recorded early week the Anxiety episode he wanted to talk about and is out and the most recent episode to date right now here on the website, other audio only platforms and of course YouTube

2) He recorded Power Rangers Dino Fury season 1 which should be done by today at the most. 

3) He had another interview, this time with David Hirsch which I am excited to hear as I heard it went very well. He's been busy editing everything and putting it together. 

4) Also he is working on season 2 now and hopes to have it done by Monday or Tuesday at the latest so he can work on and complete the 30th season, Cosmic Fury by end of next week so he can start working on Entertainment Man Podcast fully.

          Lots of work to be done and I continue to work on graphics when needed and answering the emails for him trying to cover him while he gets all this work done and I have a lot of faith he will get it done. That is the post for this week and I will speak to you all next Friday.

10th Anniversary Updates!

            I know the schedule hasn't gone to plan this from being screwed over to uncertainty we came into the 10th anniversary totally unprepared. So what we want to do is scale back what we want to do and how often we want to do something special and it is only 10 years but we have to remember 10 years is a very long time for us running this media company. Couple of things that are done on a weekly basis:

Saturdays: Random pop up streams (Facebook/Instagram)

Randomly: Gaming Streams

Other Events and Activities:

Chat with Larry and Justin (Live on Entertainment Man Podcast YouTube Channel)

10th Anniversary Podcast (Pre-Recorded)

10th Anniversary Celebrations (In Studio, Closed event)

            There may be one more event added in there between but it will depend and will talk to Larry and Justin in April for this but again, I do not want to overdo everything for this 10th anniversary and I'm not I'm taking a step back for this anniversary and I look forward to the events both weekly and schedule. It will be a chaotic year but excited for everything and even the public events I will be attending, we will be weaving in and out of it all but worth all the craziness. We wanted to go big of go home with our 10th anniversary and we are. Anyways that is the post for today, I want to do another post addressing a few changes in the community with streams. Then Kelsie will do her end of the week updates tomorrow so I will talk to you all Monday!

               I know there has been no news on the blog nor the website itself about events and with my dad's health I was holding back on the announcement.

Addressing A Few Things....

             I'm addressing the hate but will not stoop down to naming names but here it goes:

55 Subscribers? No, if you guys look, I have 59 subscribers and a lot more then you ever would have. It took me 2 years to get to this point and plus I have been doing Entertainment Man for 4 years now, 2 of those years were Audio ONLY, I only added Video in April 2022 because it was requested time and time again so I did so.

Nobody Listens but a few people: Wrong! If you look at the views, that shows volume I am very consistent in views between 25 - 40 or more views per episode! Plus at the premieres Kelsie is there chatting and other people have popped in and said hey! I'm sure some rather lurk and listen and I am totally fine with that! 

I don't care about the podcast? I do care, I care about motivating people and giving great topics and advice!

I update the website too much?  No we ran into an issue with the layout so that was fix but we decided to shift things around a bit so if you don't like it then unfollow or block us. 

Supposedly been doing this 10 years: Entertainment Man Podcast has only been around 4 years, ChrisBOnTheWeb Media that produces it has been around almost 10 years!

15000 views on the podcast: I never said that nor stated how many views in total so I do not know where that bloody number came from! 

         That is what I have to say for this and I will not address anymore of this garbage and bringing this company nor this community down. I will talk to you all tomorrow.

We Broke The Website Yesterday!

          Yesterday, I wanted to change up the website so the girls and I (Kelsie and Haylie) decided to explore the idea that I had and we ran into an issue with the menu bar as it didn't work whatsoever no matter what layout we went with. So the entire layout and the menu code and layout we had stayed the same but it moved about with the changes in the layout so it was there but was moved around. So the website for about an hour looked a hot mess and the three of us find it hilarious that we broke the website and we had a laugh for the day. 

          However once we got fixing the website, we found the website now looks a ton better and I am not sure what we did but it is now fixed and looks a ton better. Proud of the changes and big thanks to the two ladies being up all hours helping me through the fixes. Haylie was so patient and helped me out with the fixes and patches to the website and Kelsie was on the duty of testing the page out. We also removed the wall of fame as we do not have the images and feel it wasn't benefitting the website. Anyways we are online and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow for another blog post!

End of The Week Updates [03-15-2024]

            I am sorry I am late for this but life gets in the way. First thing is first, Chris should be done the first season of Power Rangers Dino Fury but then it's up to him to finish up the next one in the next 5 - 7 days from now. The next things I want to say is a big thank you and welcome to our new members of our Discord server. Speaking of welcome our team would like to welcome Haylie to the team replacing my brother and will eventually replacing me for 7 months to a year while I take my leave of absence but I will have time to train her and don't worry I'll be still around the community, especially with Discord and any of the social media's. I'm not sure if I will have Staff status while I am away in the discord or if he will make me an admin for the time being I do not know. 

           As for Entertainment Man Podcast, Chris is still doing what he's doing with the podcast, continuing to be a success on that podcast. There is nothing else I want to speak on for this week, the website continues to strive forward we continue to grow as a community and company and we want to be more active on the social media. He has a bunch of posts coming today so stay tuned for that but that is this week's end of the week updates, have a wonderful weekend and speak to you all soon!

Getting to a Milestone is a lot of work!

             This journey hasn't been easy for the 5 of us. Yes I'm talking Larry, Justin, Kelsie, Jim and I as Justin was part of this team in the earlier to later years. It takes years to get to this point and something my old team didn't see as we were close to it but didn't reach it, we were a year and less then a month away from hitting it and ChrisBOnTheWeb Media hitting it this year is a huge milestone! It is long process and honestly with this year being our 10th anniversary we did it, we reached this milestone. Reaching a milestone takes time and hard work and long hours which we have put a ton of hours into this company and we're finally seeing a ton of success. 

            So it isn't easy but I am 100% proud that this company has gotten to the milestone even though we are many months from the milestone and we are going to be talking about the party in April what we wanna do and what not to celebrate this special occasion. I do not want to miss this opportunity as it is a big occasion especially the fact of the matter what I said above I'm just plain old excited for this milestone for the company especially this year. I know I've been going crazy and planning for it has been up and down and I promise you guys we will not do anything too crazy this year. There is stuff happening soon I am excited to talk about. Anyways that is what I had to say about this and have a great weekend and as always I will talk to you all on Monday as usual Kelsie will be doing the end of the week updates and I'm excited to what updates she has for you guys. Talk Monday!

Made a bunch of changes recently

           As you may have noticed this website has been changed around quite a lot and that is why it was a very busy weekend with updates to you guys and as you know the 10th anniversary has been moved over to the about section and the schedule has been moved over to the main bar so it's been moved about. Also 10th anniversary has a main page for both pages with interactive clickable images on there by clicking on it. 

         Also the schedule, due to some privacy issues with the calendar, appointments I have booked has started to show up so what Jim suggested to me is to put a table with the schedule for events and the content schedule and that is what I did and was done actually done live on a stream so you guys got to see how the page looks and its not HTML it's a table and I'm getting better with the tables so I don't care what my naysayers say!

I Haven't Been Transparent With You All Lately...

            I haven't been transparent with you guys much... I mean I have been going through some personal struggles with a friendship ending, which I do not really want to talk about it but I needed to be more transparent that depression has been real lately. I have been struggling and having a really hard time. I've kept and bottling things up which is not a healthy thing to do whatsoever. I need to start journaling how I am feeling and the book is next to me but I haven't yet written and I need to get to it and start journaling in it daily will help me release all this anger that I am feeling inside of me right now. I feel so angry at the situation and bottling it up right now doesn't help whatsoever. 

           Also my grandma's 1 year anniversary since she passed away was yesterday and I was feeling it yesterday. I noticed on streams how angry I was and I feel it this morning so I have decided to stop streaming video games all together and just do videos with behind the scenes and the weekly just chatting streams. I will be deleting the gaming content and I will be rebranding the channel but I will talk more about that on Wednesday's post. So I feel bad that I've let you guys down with not being transparent and I've noticed the hit it's taken on YouTube and Social Media. I promise to do better, be more transparent and be more open and honest with you guys moving forward. It will take me some time to start being more transparent and something I am going to start doing and planning to post more and be interactive with you all moving forward.

**** Update **** I have been diagnosed with Anxiety and going on medication, this will most definitely help me out. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Monday and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow!

End of The Week Updates [03-08-2024]

            This week has been pretty interesting.. From recording episodes to posting them, Chris has been a very busy guy honestly. This weekend will be important and he has decided that he is dedicating this weekend and week to finishing up Power Rangers seasons so he can lock in recording in just under a week and a half so that is his goal for right now is the getting that all finished up and done. So this means he has confirmed no streams this weekend. He wants to focus on getting these done. If it wasn't for him watching the shows and seasons, he would of been casting. 

            He has been tearing down a building on his Minecraft server with TNT but he will show you guys when it's completely down. But this is the end of the week updates. Between that he will be recording and in another meeting Tuesday in the afternoon between 2 pm and 5 pm EST so he is a very busy, busy guy. he is pretty much booked up with interviews till April at this point but busy is a good thing. That is everything to update with and he is sorry for no streams this weekend but next weekend, he will be going live on Saturday and I will talk to you at the end of next week, have a wonderful weekend.

My Future with Minecraft?

             Well once the buildings are completed, the final subway line, the west line is finished, then I will be done with Minecraft for the foreseeable future. I'll be focusing on other games down the road. I feel like I've done everything that I have humanly can with Minecraft all together and been playing on this server for years on end. It is time to change things up with video games and the game won't be uninstalled nor the server will be deleted but I will be saving the file for the world so it is backed up in case I want to revisit it at any point.

             So once these projects are done I will be moving on from the game for a while and playing other games. There is so much you can really do on Minecraft. I've been playing this since 2012 - 2013 well over 10 years. I guess you guys can say that I am semi retired to permanently retired from the video game as I've played it too much. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all on Monday as Kelsie will be doing the usual end of the week updates.

YouTube and Copyright

                I know I have had to delete some of the streams cause of copyright and for crying out loud I muted quick but apparently not quick enough... So I know now I will not be streaming Grand Theft Auto 5 or Grand Theft Auto 6 whatsoever cause of the copyright and their very stingy on the copyright especially that I actually muted it very very quickly like give me a break! I muted it and very, very fast! But noooo they are too strict on this and why even allow us to stream it on YouTube and make it restricted in a pile of countries honestly? 

                This is most definitely off my list and I have a pile of other games I wanna play and get done and is more important on my list right now. Games I do wanna play more of all together. I just don't like the fact I turned it off quickly and yet I still get slapped with copyright so I deleted the streams and got rid of the copyright affected so now that is out of the way, I am going to focus on other things. Anyways that is everything I wanted to say about the subject and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow.

I Find my Streams Relaxing!

              I love the weekend streams, both just chatting and gaming streams and why I dedicate two days of streaming unless I am not available for it. I love chatting with you guys but dual streaming has become a headache especially back on the weekend, I turned off the FB stream to Prism Studio freezing up and I had to restart the entire cast on YouTube so another program bites the dust on top of Skype being a pain now Prism Studio Live I am not too fond of. 

             If you are wondering how I stream, well I am using OBS Studio like I did since 2015. It is very reliable and easy to use and I have everything pretty much setup and ready to go for streams moving forward. I know I would have to switch back and forth when I am streaming to Entertainment Man but most of the time I will be using Streamyard for the most part. Anyways that is today's post, I will be talking to you all tomorrow for another blog post.

I Have To Be Organized for Podcasts!

             With interviews with new guests and chats with returning guests from the past, I have to remember to stay organized. That was the case back on the weekend, I had to say OK this has to be done first then this and so forth and so on. I have to make sure I have all the notes prepared ahead of time and recently had a cancellation with an interview but that's OK. When I started podcasting, I was so disorganized to a point where I ended up so behind. Yes I am referencing "Everything About Reality TV" Podcast which ran from Sept 2015 - June 2020, few months short of it's 5th anniversary. 

              However with both Entertainment Man Podcast and The CBOTW Show, I've had to become more organized especially with Entertainment Man's Bonus episode and The CBOTW Show's regular rotating schedule each week has put me more at ease to know exactly when to record and edit so it is up on time. I honestly feel the organization is there minus the still mishaps with trying to get Power Rangers Podcast finished finally after almost 6 years now.  I'm getting there with organization but still some work to get done with that but hopeful in the later half of this week to the next week or two to have everything complete. But that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow.

End of The Week Updates [03-01-2024]

             Hey everyone! 

             Happy 1st of March! Here are your updates: With both Sunday's and Wednesdays episode now complete for Entertainment Man Podcast, Chris can clearly sit back and watch Power Rangers Dino Fury which he has been doing lately. He hope to be done or close to done by today then if he finishes tomorrow he will start working on season 2 hoping to be finished by Tuesday this way him and Larry will most definitely have something to record for The CBOTW Show next Thursday. 

             Also we have had a bit of a influx of spam on our Discord server, so Chris has adjusted the bot to mute it too incase myself, Larry, Jim or himself do not get to timeout the perpetrator that is causing problems. Also I've added with his permission a spam corner and the bot has been disabled for that channel so you can spam away all you want but still the other rules like being respectful and what not still applies to that channel. Finally I want to thank everyone that's supported us whether it's Facebook, Twitter (X), Instagram, Threads, YouTube, Audio ONLY or even on our Discord, we appreciate your tireless support. I will talk to you all end of the next week, please enjoy your weekend.
