For the last 4 years, I’ve averaged 100 video uploads per year on the channel (2016 – 80, 2017 – 117, 2018 – 95, 2019 – 108), hardly ever missing a Monday or Thursday upload. I’m going to be cutting back in 2020. The plan for 2020 is ONE weekly upload for a total of 52. I know this may disappoint some of you, but I need a break. Unless you’ve done extensive editing yourself, you probably don’t realize the amount of time that goes into editing a video. While the Back-in-the-Garage videos can usually be edited in about an hour, the travel videos take me on average 6-8 hours with some taking up to 16-18 hours to complete. Could I edit them faster? Sure, but I want to put out the best quality I can so I give it my best effort and I like to think that it shows in the finished product.
In addition to the uploads, I do my best to keep up with as many comments as possible but with thousands of comments left on my videos this year, even that’s become difficult. Don’t get me wrong; I’m NOT complaining but just need some more time back for myself and my family.
So in 2020, look for a new upload every Monday and I’ll likely post some randomly as well. Who knows…we may still end up with more uploads in 2020 than 2019…just without the deadline.
Hope you all have a Happy New Year!
