Out of my previous four posts on this blog, only one has actually provided something substantial to read. The others have been little more than me announcing that I’ve made a YouTube video.
In the single exception to this, I was discussing my goals for the year, and included the following statement: “Making professional triathlon a sustainable career means providing value to brands/sponsors, and entertainment to consumers.”
This is something that I’ve thought a lot about…
Having posted a handful of videos to a YouTube channel, I have already seen more engagement on that platform, than this blog. These levels of engagement are still tiny in the scheme of social media, but it is at least a positive trend.
I recognise that my written posts have been a long way off consistent enough to expect any growth. Regardless, I have now concluded that most of my efforts (outside of training, coaching, and securing sponsorship) will be best directed towards this new YouTube thing.
Unfortunately, I don’t really have the bandwidth to also intersperse meaningful written things, and I don’t want this blog to merely become a billboard for whenever I upload a video. I am therefore going to stop posting about my YouTube videos on this blog.
That basically means three things:
1. Updates on here will likely return to the usual sporadic service (perhaps even less frequently than before).
2. If you have enjoyed the videos I have posted so far, please consider subscribing to my channel on YouTube. If you do this, and hit the little bell icon, you will receive a notification whenever I upload. (I also promise, the videos will improve as I do more of them.)
3. If you think this is a bad idea, please let me know.
With that being said, and for possibly the last time, here’s my latest upload:
