Starting to Get Use to a Routine!

               Getting into this new schedule has been rough go from the get go and we are 4 days into July and already feeling a little anxious and overwhelmed which is sort of trigger my anxiety a but the pill seems to help counter act it but it gets late in the day and I work very late it seems like an empty bottomless pit for me honestly. I need to realize the schedule is to get smaller along with the workload that I have it will eventually wind down on the load and I can take it more easier and I will get easier days but it will take some time. 

               However I do feel at ease knowing the schedule is more simpler and easy to follow and actually makes sense compare the crazy schedule we use to have we are getting use to this schedule but may take a few weeks to really get a grip into the schedule and we will in time. However I feel a lot happier with the schedule and not mad scrambling. That is the post for today, Happy 4th of July to all our American Fans, have a great weekend everyone and Kelsie will be doing the end of the week updates tomorrow and I will talk to you all on Monday!

End of The Week Updates [06-21-2024]

            Another end of the week has come to a close and here are the updates for this week: Chris has finished all the necessary editing that has to be done to make room for editing this weekend's episode of the podcast. Today what I gather he is recording Wednesday's podcast for Entertainment Man Podcast which starting next week the Wednesdays start on a more permanent schedule. However as you know The CBOTW Show heads to Fridays every other week. 

                     Also this weekend Chris is aiming to finish up Entertainment Man Podcast notes for future episodes of the podcast. The move will be shifting over to The CBOTW Show and working on episodes for the future weeks during the summer, including working on Corner Gas which is another project he is working on. Be sure to check out the podcast tonight as Chris will be interviewing Mary from Mac N Cheese Podcast & Life With Mary Podcast Live on YouTube at 9 pm EST, so don't miss out on an amazing episode! I will be back next week for more updates.

End of The Week Updates [06-07-2024]

               Sorry and hey everyone for the late end of the week updates but here at the updates for this week. Chris is finishing up with all the loose ends with podcasts that need editing and scheduled to be posted up on the platforms. He's been trying to get to the other work that needs to be finished but he's been busy editing the podcast. He finds that the two episodes a week is a bit much but he's getting into a rhythm his schedule he has to get use to and this is where he is going to start scheduling things in for him and have an allotted time. 

               However he has been stressing out about this schedule changes and worried it will not work out. I promised him he will get into a good rhythm and he will have the podcasts scheduled to record on certain days and what not. We have talked about a change in schedule days Mondays and Wednesdays but now sticking to our current schedule at the moment.  So hopefully this weekend we will completely finish up things so come Monday we can move forward with the upcoming weeks as we ease into the new schedule. Those are the updates I have and I am once again sorry for being late and I will speak to you all next Friday.

Firing on All Cylinders Recently

            Things may have gone wonky with our schedules for content, missing episode of Entertainment Man Podcast last Wednesday to the YouTube Shorts not going out on time and we actually or I posted a bunch of stuff in the last 24 hours to catch up on the channel content. Now you see why I do not want to put The CBOTW Show up on YouTube as of yet, maybe not at all. I haven't determined what the plan with that is right at this moment. 

            However the last 24 hours I have been firing on all cylinders catching up, determined to get all the editing done so I can work on podcast interviews for this week and the next 2 weeks for the podcast.  Then the next plan is to work on writing new episodes of both podcasts. Anyways that is the post, I wanted to make this a quick blog post and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow.

End of The Week Updates [06-01-2024]

            Happy first day of June to you all. Summer is approaching us and I can say Chris is planning to stream a ton this summer only on YouTube. Now if you didn't know he is currently on a one week ban from Twitch and is on his first strike but he has decided to NOT return to Twitch after the ban is up. He will be continuing on with YouTube and the occasional Facebook Fan Page weekly as well. We're excited for the next steps he's going to be taking with this community. 

          He admitted that YouTube has started to pick up on him in the way of views so he wants to continue to grow, continue to get more subscribers and building this community as it's grown quite a lot lately and we are very proud of what we have built, Chris is of course. The rest of this weekend, we will be editing and scheduling the podcasts. You will see shorts from last Sunday's episode up today throughout the day but that will do it for my post, enjoy the rest of your weekend and week and speak to you all next week.

Busy Editing Podcasts and updates!

             With all the episodes recorded, we are busy editing things getting all the episodes out. As for the missing clips I am going to forgo those for the week and will start back with shorts on Monday and will make sure it goes out to you guys and I apologize for lack of content. We've been swamped with things but now that things have settled down, I can start catching up with those. I feel bad enough missing the Wednesday episode which I will be making up next Wednesday at 3 pm EST. Next week the schedule will be jammed packed with episodes but I promise it will be entertaining. Once I finishing editing by the end of this weekend, I will be working on all the interviews that I have coming up. Anyways that is the post for today, I will as always talk to you all on Monday, have a great weekend!

- Work on recording the bonus episode of the podcast

- Finishing up interviews prep for the podcast

- Edit the entire 3 podcasts Larry and I recorded  

- Work on future episodes of Entertainment Man Podcast   

- Edit the bonus episode for next week

             So there is a ton of stuff that I need to finish so I am not sure if I will be able to get streams in this weekend but certainly will try my best to get those in too. One step at a time though that's all I can do really anyways that is the post for today as always I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Podcast Updates-- Entertainment Man & The CBOTW Show

             Now that the schedule has been released I want to talk more what you can expect with this schedule and how much more freedom both podcasts have together. Meaning I could potentially start doing interviews live more often and the opportunity for growth of Entertainment Man Podcast. I've been thinking about this recently and these plans make total sense to me now. I was regretting the decision but now that I think about it all, it totally makes a ton of sense. 

            With The CBOTW Show, I am planning to post to Audio ONLY for the foreseeable future but I am planning to expand to YouTube eventually, not right at this present but down the road in the very nearby future. I want to take baby steps with all these changes and I do not want to expand too fast and I think that is the biggest problem we have had in the past was rushing into things too fast. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Learning to Take Small Steps!

              In the last 2 months, I have learned to take smaller steps. As you know by now with all these changes I have learned a lot about myself and what I have learned is to take smaller steps. The CBOTW Show on YouTube too soon that was a big wake up call for me knowing that it was way too soon to go to YouTube for that podcast so we are waiting till January 2026. Also I have learned with the smaller steps to check to make sure it works meaning the episode is completely playable which I have done since the issues occurred. 

             So smaller steps means taking it one thing at a time. I am continuing to focus on The CBOTW Show on Audio ONLY for the next year before making the jump to Video (YouTube) Also getting use to the weekly schedule with both podcasts on Sundays for Entertainment Man and Wednesdays for The CBOTW Show. It will take some time for us to get readjusted to a schedule that will soon make a lot more sense and less confusion. Anyways that is today's post and as always I will talk to you all Monday!

Made Changes (Full Explanation)

              The website was in dire need of updates once again as it was becoming a bit of a thorn in my side. Content Schedule got an overhaul, Videos page got an overhaul, I even updated Entertainment Man Podcast which wasn't updated as I was out of the province on holidays. The CBOTW Show decision on YouTube has been decided to be put on hold and we are focusing on Audio ONLY for The CBOTW Show. Basically I am focusing on the Twitch, Main YouTube account and Entertainment Man.

             Taking smaller steps when it comes to ALL our Shows. First step is in 2025 with the new podcasting, blogs and streaming schedules moving forward and both podcasts on a weekly schedule each which makes things so much easier to deal with. I wish I did this sooner and I will talk about that more on tomorrow's post as a continuation of what of talking about taking smaller steps but this is just the start of some major changes to our schedules and that it will make complete sense now compare what we have right now. Anyways I will talk to you all tomorrow for another blog post.

Web Series or Podcasting?

            Web series or Podcasting? Which one do I prefer. As you guys may know my history with the web series that I use to do from 2005 till 2015 a good 10 years with doing series then from 2014 to the present day, which almost at 10 years for me as a podcaster as I started to dabble in the world of podcasting with one other person back then. You guys know I loved doing the series but we kind of ran aground and ran out of ideas for the series so that is one of the reason. 

            But Podcasting I love, I love being my authentic self and talk about TV shows and movies so I really am loving what we're doing now with the podcasts right now and no regrets whatsoever switching to podcasts. Larry, Kelsie and myself seem to really enjoy what we are doing right now. So in a short answer, I definitely say podcasting is more my thing and more in my wheelhouse of expertise as I've done internet and campus radio in the past. I hope you guys enjoyed reading today's blog and enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will talk to you all on Monday as I will be home from my trip by then.

Goals For ChrisBOnTheWeb Media?

             Since we are halfway through the year, some of our goals weren't reachable like the YouTube Channel for The CBOTW Show but there are goals I'd like to share with you guys professionally:

ChrisBOnTheWeb Media: I'd love to reach 1 million views on and we're closing in to 700K at this moment and it may take a few more years but that is totally OK with that and we continue to grow and learn each and every day we continue this journey together. 

            Also I would love to see 20 years and even a 25th anniversary for ChrisBOnTheWeb but baby steps as we are only on our 10th anniversary at the moment and we will get there eventually but again it is a long way off from our 20th and 25th anniversary and we will get there some day, just gotta keep truckin'. 

Entertainment Man Podcast: Now Entertainment Man, I can say I want to reach 300 episodes with eventually hitting the 500th episode down the road. Also I would love to hit 500 subscribers which is a very high goal and that will happen eventually. Small goals to start obviously.

The CBOTW Show: With The CBOTW Show of YouTube now my only goal is the 100th episode of the podcast and getting up there in episodes and probably get close to 50 by this year. 

            Anyways that is my post for today, it is nice to redefine my goals and as you noticed, I didn't give us any timeline, when it happens it happens right. Just keep producing the content out there but I will talk to you all tomorroW.

What's Going on With The CBOTW Show?

             I know YouTube has become a stressful platform. I thought all our episodes The  CBOTW Show was going to work but the premiere cut out after 10 - 20 mins into  the premiere which got me very, very upset and more agitated with the platform but playing it back didn't work. I think having 3 channels is a little much right now. So The CBOTW Show is staying Audio ONLY for now and maybe 3 channels was not the right move for us perhaps plus Twitch. 

             So maybe I need to focus on the 2 channels and shrink things down ChrisBOnTheWeb Media channel and Entertainment Man Podcast. Maybe one day we will go back to video for The CBOTW Show but who knows. We are taking a step back for now and focusing on the Audio ONLY for The CBOTW Show while Entertainment Man Podcast is on YouTube and with me streaming on weekends for you guys those will be my 2 primary focus. Anyways that is the blog post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Let's Talk The CBOTW Show!

              The CBOTW Show has had rough waters lately. We tried to go to YouTube and it failed miserably. We tried to upload and the video froze and the premiere just unexpectedly ended on us. So I have no clue how to fix it and I think we made a mistake going to YouTube right away. We should of actually waited to go on the platform for this podcast. However nothing we can do now. I'm not sure what happened to the podcast why the video didn't play but the video was corrupted apparently so I have no clue what went on with that.

              The Podcast is to return in January 2025 on YouTube and hopefully we know exactly what we are doing and that we can actually have 0 problems with the podcast moving forward. With this podcast we are still learning with this podcast. However when we return to The CBOTW Show, we will be on a weekly schedule and things will be on a more smoother run then it has been. Just a little patience, we made the wrong call on The CBOTW Show a little too soon. We should of been more patient but not only that but we jumped too soon on going to YouTube for that podcast. However we will be back in 2025 on video but for right now we are sticking to Audio for this podcast for now. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for another blog post.

End of The Week Updates [04-26-2024]

               This is the last end of the week updates for the month of April. I cannot believe next week, we are already in May. Soon we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in November which is very exciting. The updates Chris has already recorded and edited the interview with Jayson and is airing tomorrow at 1 pm EST.  He has been writing blog after blog for the entire week in May that he is away on holidays from May 15th - 19th, 2024 with him back on the weekend on the 19th. 

                 He has also worked on YouTube Shorts for one of those podcasts and the interview episode. He still has to work on the final episode this weekend and that is the plan for today before his 1 pm EST stream is to record that podcast and edit it. After that I believe he has some open time and I believe he will be working on The CBOTW Show episodes, The Simpsons and then after working on Entertainment Man new episodes for the future. Either way he is getting things done before he goes away in May. He sure deserves the time off. I will talk further what is going on for the week he is away for 5 days on May 11th but I will speak to you all next week.

Getting Frustrated

             YouTube was a bit of a pain in the butt. Was having issues with a "Processing Error" on there and you can understand the frustration and truly my anxiety went through the roof on this. I have been fighting this for a while now. I just want to get these finished so I can move on but I think it's definitely a YouTube issue not me. However we know it is a longer episode, hour and a half long, 1 hour long and 18 minutes long so and the first and third one went up no problem whatsoever so that is really strange.

            But I continued to trying to get it up so you guys get to see this but now I need to try and keep episodes to at least an hour long for the nearby future because I have uploaded an hour podcast on "Entertainment Man Podcasts" YouTube Channel with 0 problems. Just this channel seems to be the problematic issue right now. It does sound like something YouTube related cause Entertainment Man hasn't had a problem in the past! Anyways that is the blog post for today, I thank you for reading and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Post Power Rangers Podcast Check-in!

               Now with Power Rangers done and Power Rangers Podcast now on Hiatus for right now, I feel the sense of relief. I know you are shocked to hear this from me but now that it has wrapped up production I do not know what I will do with my time after editing is completed and I am currently working on it at this moment. It feels weird to not have to do anything now. I can work around other projects, I have a ton of Entertainment Man Podcast episodes I want to write and have done and ready and the list is pretty endless so I'd like to work on that for a while and it's not too much work but something on the list. 

               With being in post production, editing is taking place and we are working hard to get both the video and audio only and excited to be releasing these to you guys soon. I have handed off an episode to Kelsie to help out with the editing process to speed it up so it is ready to go. This is why we moved the Mean Girls Reboot to next week instead so gives us more time to work and edit but I am sure it will be done quickly. We edit at a good speed so it is done. Anyways that is the check-in blog and have a great weekend as Kelsie is doing the end of the week updates and I will talk to you all on Monday!

Podcasts May Be Stressful but worth the long hours!

               Podcasting may be a lot of work from pre-production to production to post production it is a ton of work. However there is the technical side of the podcasting especially with a certain program named Skype that ChrisBOnTheWeb Media isn't using as a tool for our shows anymore. I will talk further on that on next Wednesday's episode for you guys on the future of guests and interviews with the podcast. Tech issues can happen and it happened on that one day I was suppose to be on a podcast and patience is a virtue when it comes to that especially. 

                So podcasting can be and is very stressful at times and yesterday proved it cause Skype is dead to me, I'm done with it and yes I am showing my frustration with the platform and app. So where am I going with this post? Podcasting is a ton of work both behind the scenes and on the air. Plus updating the software with the proper graphics etc. Then editing the audio for release on Audio Only. However it is worth the long, long hours and I've become accustomed to the long hours and it takes a lot of dedication and time too. I am proud of both podcasts and how far we've gone with the podcast. That is the blog for today, I will talk to you on Monday as Kels is taking over the blog tomorrow so have a great weekend, talk Monday!
