“Be yourself” – that’s what everyone tells you. Although, I usually get the “be yourself… but not too much” variation of it. However, in the world of horror and weird fiction, I think being myself and letting the crazy out is actually a good thing.
Last week, I read a blog post on Patreon about how Matt Hamlin managed to get a shedload of subscribers on Youtube. The post itself is really interesting, so I’d recommend you have a read if you have time. One of the key pieces of advice that I took from it was:
Create Something You Can Promote
In Matt’s case, he found that doing what other gamer Youtubers were doing wasn’t getting him the views he desired, so he did something that was very ‘him’. He took that age old “be yourself” advice and ran with it.
So, this is what I’m going to be doing. What will this mean? I have no idea at this point. Maybe videos? Maybe different blogs? Who knows. But, whatever it is, it will be very Lou.
