Ayappi here again! And I wanted to give you all an update on the YouTube channel, as well as set the deal as to what will happen to the blog.
Channel preparations I could say are generally going well. Channel name has been decided, and I will retain Ayappi’s Room (thank you Umai Yomu Anime Blog). I already worked out the channel art, though I might change it out soon. I’m considering on commissioning an artist to make us an avatar for the channel actually, something like Pi-kun (trap mode of course). If you want to subscribe early you could do so by going to the channel through this link (YouTube has an algorithm that basically prevents me from being visible to their search engine if I haven’t posted more than 2 videos). Equipment wise, we are all set for recording my face and voice. Until I could manage to afford a DSLR camera for videos, I’ll be using my phone. Judging from a few test shots I made, it will do a fine job of recording me. I also ordered a cheap tripod and phone mount for it so my face won’t be shaking all the time.
When it comes to what the first video will be, as of right now I’m working on the script for the first video. I’ve decided with much deliberation that I would be doing a manga recommendation style video, much like my manga recommendation entries here on Ayappi’s Room. Probably that, recording the damn thing and piece it together, and coming up with a solid channel intro, or leave it out altogether, is all that’s left. I honestly could make a crappy intro video using Powerpoint but that isn’t how we roll here. I might commission someone to make an intro for me (not those 3D dubstep intros you see on most new channels), but we’ll see. The logo will appear more or less, I love my 6 pointed star seal ❤
With that said, I think it’s fairly obvious that the YouTube channel is set to push through and there is no stopping me, other than YouTube shutting down completely or my final exams for the semester which are drawing closer every single day. What will happen to the blog now then? Will I toast it forever and completely decommission it?
The short answer is no.
The blog in its current form will be repurposed as a complimentary website for the Youtube channel, especially given how YouTube’s (annoying) algorithm is coded based on my research. Like I said previously, I won’t be in the channel search results until maybe the 2nd video, and even then it takes long for the search results to refresh with new channels, videos and the like. Please expect entries containing my videos for maybe until the 10th video, but I probably won’t even get to the 10th video. I’m honestly not sure what will happen, let’s just wait and see.
After I deem that I do not need to post entries in the blog anymore about new video releases, the entries in the blog will mostly be any of the following:
- Anything that would most likely land me a community strike on YouTube, or a copyright strike
- Emergency announcements
- Contests and giveaway details (I’m not even sure if I’ll reach this point but you get the idea)
- Business details and other business related matters (Again, not even sure if I’ll reach this point but why the hell not)
Again, like I said in my previous entry on the subject matter, which you can read here. Ayappi’s Room is NOT dying. It will be reborn like a phoenix. Look at my logo. Imagine that’s a phoenix and not a six pointed star
or a five pointed star that looked at some hentai.
To the 38 subscribers (at the time of writing, and to all the new ones after), thank you for subscribing to Ayappi’s Room as a blog. It may not be in the million mark but trust me, you all make me really happy. I will still be posting content, just not here
, but in a more hostile environment called YouTube. #WEEBUILT Ayappi’s Room. I hope to see you all too in YouTube! ❤
You can also follow me on Twitter or Instagram for quick updates on the channel at @ayapipipiiin. Oh and if any of you have a YouTube channel, let me know down in the comments or on Twitter so I can put you in the “Ayappi’s Roommates” tab on the right of my channel. I’m open to include maybe 2 or 3 more?
Again, thank you for the journey on WordPress. Let’s see each other again, on YouTube. And what better way to end this entry than by doing the stereotypical Youtuber “back at it again with another entry, don’t forget to subscribe, like this video if you like it, like it if you dislike it, and don’t forget to subscribe to the like I mean channel.” (I’ll do my best not to be like this).
