2017 looks to be a big year for me on several fronts. While the Paw Print Media family of sites is growing substantially on all fronts, I want to focus attention to both this site and on YouTube/Instagram.
This year is the year of transparency and that is going to play a significant role into all three of the aforementioned platforms. Relatively long-form posts like Christmastime Sadness where I can just freely express my thoughts are going to become the norm here on this site. I’m not going to promise any sort of consistency immediately but I am aiming to have a new post once a week right here.
I’ve been eyeing YouTube to grow for a while now. My personal account was set up over 10 years ago, and while this is only my second full year of running the revamped Andrew Okwuosah channel I’ve been looking to grow the channel’s audience substantially. Here’s how I plan to do it.
The channel was initially built on delivering short, digestable highlights as I play games. While I’ll definitely still be doing that for games like Rocket League and Madden, this format will be modified somewhat for new games on the channel like NBA 2K17. For that game, I’ll be providing a semi-weekly highlight reel featuring the best moments of my slightly taller alter ego in his quest to dominate the association. Paw Print Media’s YouTube content will also be expanded in the New Year, with a focus on creating easily digestable content.
Of course, series like On the Road will continue in full force like they have been supplemented with coverage on Instagram Stories. The goal here is to share moments with intimacy and immediacy. Consider this as a behind-the-scenes look at the story behind the montage.
I will also be rolling over my goals from last year, since I clearly failed miserably at those.
Let the year of transparency begin.
