Change Has To Happen!

                The last 2 years for my website has been hard, allowing a certain Reality TV Podcast of mine return not once but several times to be let down by two people. I feel like if I've just quit doing Reality TV Podcasts things would be a complete different scenerio right now, I would of been a lot happier then I am right now which I am quite miserable cause of the accusations and drama surrounding my community which has even caused me to contemplate quitting ChrisBOnTheWeb. That discussion Larry and I had though I am glad Entertainment Man Productions didn't stay cause it would of been a hot mess like CBOTW was the last two years has been for me dealing with enormous amount of stress with this website. Only best part of it is the number of views and listeners I have had on the website and podcasts and like my Co-Host said the viewership has been up and we monitor the listenership on a regular basis and maybe I should do an analytic report for you guys one day the number of listeners etc. 

           However moving forward, one strict rule I am going to have is ChrisBOnTheWeb is my website, nobody elses. Yes Larry is involved but I mean the fact was a podcast network but moving forward it is a stand alone website, meaning my website, nobody elses. Not going back into a podcast network anytime soon, nor ever in the rest of the history of this website. I am officially solo from here on out minus the collabs and potential return of CBOTW Gamers Podcast which I will talk about in a bonus episode next week but for right now that is today's post and I will as always talk to you all tomorrow for the end of the week updates.

The Recent Changes and What You Need to Know!

                 I know with the decision to end daily blogging a lot of questions why would I end something that has been a part of your daily lives for the past 3 - 4 years? 1) Views are not there as they use to at one point and the 2nd point I'd like to say, I am starting to run dry on ideas with topics for posts on a regular basis so that has become a common issue for the last 6 months. I still got ideas but the fact I only post 4 days a week Tuesday - Friday with weekends off, I think this will help my mental health especially and I think this is the right move. I know there will be upset people with the decision but you have to realize I have been doing this for 3 - 4 years non stop so I kind of knew this time would come where I would have to stop daily blogging. This means a change in my routine. So the Schedule you guys wanna know the Official Schedule as it hasn't become public but this weekend, we wrap up weekend posts and get to new timetable as of Monday. So today is the normal post and tomorrow will be my last Weight Loss Update on a Saturday and Sunday a reflection on Daily Blogging every single day. I know there are questions about events and on Tuesday, I will get into it at a later date when I start going back to posts. Anyways here is the schedule for moving forward:

Sundays: Weekly Updates from our Site Admin

Mondays - Thursdays: Normal Posts from me

Fridays: Weight Loss Updates

Every Other Fridays: Regular Post as I do not wanna make it on a weekly basis at this moment. 

             I am looking forward to this change and I know there will be upset people and this opens the door for other opportunities within the website community and you never know what is planned for the future! Expect the unexpected.

Change Can Be Hard!

              I admit in the past it wasn't easy for me and still isn't from time to time and that is how I have honestly been feeling since once again leaving YouTube. Recently with the change of not doing the podcast on video once again. As you know in the last week it hasn't been good since I got home a few weeks ago from holidays. Ever since it has been hell trying to catch up and get back on a routine. Routine right now isn't too good but with the podcast from last week today at Noon EDT, it will be good to try and get things out on time tomorrow and Friday. I just gotta keep a positive attitude through these rough times. Just gotta make sure I make the time. My problem was I had no time but the bigger issue was I have not been myself honestly, down depressed cause I kind of felt like I let you guys down with the lack of being on a schedule. I know I have tried to promise to stay on the right track for you guys but recently found it extremely hard to stay on the right track. I kind of blame myself for it as I never recovered after the trip and wish I made time as I had that one day all to myself to get caught up on things and there was also a morning that I was up early but other nights I was up half the night unable to sleep and what not so that did not help whatsoever but finally was able to sleep at night and ready to continue to make up for what I have fallen behind on and on schedule again as of tomorrow night.

               Change can be hard and as I stated above, I have not had the easiest time with adjusting to the change honestly. You just have to try and adjust and if you have to adjust scheduling like I have done over time but sometimes it doesn't seem to work so you just gotta figure it out. I know it is not easy but you have to keep on trucking and never give up. I never really did that but yea I really thought about it honestly. There was a point the other day I was ready to say the heck with Everything About Reality TV but then again you guys reminded me why the heck I am doing this podcast and I have had one heck of a run so far and it's nowhere near finished yet and plenty of more episodes and seasons to come. I just gotta keep it up and hoping and saying a prayer for guidance as the last few weeks haven't been the easiest thing for me honestly but it just gives me more oomph to keep on going with the podcast. Yes there will be a day when my podcast will stop all together but I have said this many times in the past that I do have a plan and in time you will know. Last point I would like to make in this post one of the most hardest changes I had to make was the departure and retired from YouTube back in 2016. It took me about 1.5 years to get the hang of things honestly and still hard even to this day. Change can be dealt with but you have to be able to adjust and let the change happen slowly but surely. Trust me it doesn't happen overnight, it will just take some time. Patience is indeed a virtue and you just gotta be patient through the change.

What Can I Improve Operations @ Chris B On The Web Studios?

                I know this season was an appalling mess, very unorganized and unprofessional if you ask me. But I did the best I can to fix the situation and try and keep up but I know you guys were very understanding on some of the situation this season, but I want to do better and improve on my organizational skills and operations around this studio. So what can I do to improve?

1) Plan ahead of time, have a schedule that is actually going to work for me and this way the content is going to be out not the following week like this season ended up happening half the time during the season coverage. When out of town like I was this year, I need to re-schedule ahead of time as well and have an alternative day ready.

2) Holidays, that was the problem too, I wasn't ready to handle the holidays and the content at the same time, I need to utilize my calendar both on my phone, my computer and of course my calendar I have, the physical calendar I carry on the daily basis. 

3) Maybe schedule podcasts later, like 9 pm EDT? 8 pm seemed to not work in the past, so I think I need to adjust the times again as 8 pm isn't working out at this point I am going to change the scheduling around. 

4) Blog posts will have 2 theme days, First Monday of the month, Weight Loss update, and Thursdays, Throwback Thursday story.

                 So that it my plan moving forward with trying to improve things and making things run more efficiently and effectively, I do not want to disappointment you guys again and want to start making things up to you guys for the failure in production of the podcasts especially which has been a fail royally but in the end I am glad you guys stuck by me through the thick and thin of things. 😊
