KaBob Progress Report

Posted by KaBob799 on Feb. 8, 2014, 1:26 p.m.

Well, it's been over a month since my previous blog so I figure it's time to post again.

My YouTube Channel has been growing slowly but steadily. This month I seem to be gaining a subscriber a day on average, much better than I was doing in January. I've also switched my video schedule up slightly since the last blog, this is how it currently looks:

Monday: RuneScape/Starbound

Tuesday: Block Hoarder/Starbound

Wednesday: Kerbal Space Program/RuneScape

Thursday: Block Hoarder/A Quick Look at Minecraft Snapshots/Starbound

Friday: RuneScape/Starbound

Saturday: Block Hoarder/Other Game (currently FTL)

Sunday: Kerbal Space Program/Other Game (currently FTL)

I plan on switching things up more in the future but the first video for each day will probably stay the same for a long time.

I've started doing custom thumbnails for most of my videos. It's adds a few minutes more work per video but I think it makes my channel look a lot fancier. I'm also only a few days away from my 200th video =]

Web Design

In the world of Pyco I've been working on a couple things. I'm still behind schedule but I've made some important progress on redesigning the main Pyco website and I might actually release it tomorrow =D It's not a huge update but it will make it a lot easier for me to add new features to the site.

In PycoForums, I've been making some progress on the translation features. I've had a couple users show up recently who were kind enough to help translate the forums into German, Hungarian and Slovak. You can check out the progress of the translations here: Translation Project. It has always been my goal to offer PycoForums in a large variety of languages so it's nice to finally make some real progress.

Owning a smartphone has been a big help in designing my sites this year. I've fixed some problems in my sites that I was only able to fix because I had the ability to properly test on a phone. I haven't started learning how to make apps yet. Mostly because I still need Windows 8.

Gaming

A lot of my gaming nowadays is on YouTube for everyone to see but I've still been finding time to play by myself. Lately I've started playing on the 360 again, specifically Skyrim, From Dust and Dead Island.

Dead Island is actually better than I expected so far, especially since I got it for free. I'm enjoying it more than Dead Rising 1 (haven't gotten around to 2 yet). From Dust is not quite as good as I expected. It's still fun, don't get me wrong, but I can only do a level or two before I have to play something else. As for Skyrim, to keep it short I'll just say I'm enjoying it much more than Oblivion =D

I'm also expecting to get Minecraft for the 360 at some point this month (extremely late Christmas present)

Also, I would kill to get the time you have to play games. I have to catch up with Pokemon Y, Ocarina of Time, and Link's Awakening.

You have about 4 times as many subscribers as me. :P

Of course, you're way better at uploading regularly judging from the schedule.

Fortunately, I'm actually uploading a Dark Souls related video right now! So, that's something.

I've actually surprised myself with how well I'm sticking to 2 videos a day. I think it's because I normally procrastinate but with daily videos I never get the chance to put things off =p

Plus I'm used to working on stuff that, even working 24/7, would take weeks or months to complete. So it's nice to be able to release 2 videos a day and still have plenty of time to work on my big projects.
