For many of you who are already aware, Knotty Gamers as a website has not been updated in a long time. Even longer when considering the blog aspect of the website was meant to have an update at least once a week. When we started Knotty Gamers, Chandler and I bit off more than we could chew. That much is beyond just being obvious, it was something we had seen other people attempt to do, and in our hubris we ignored the signs that we would also fail.
It was humbling. Humbling to see our expectations dashed so brutally that even a single view or read would be enough to make us excited. We found a foreign base that was quiet, silent, and didn’t really ever talk to us. I thought that was awful until I heard someone call the majority of listeners, reader, and video watchers a silent majority. When I look at my own consumption habits, I too rarely make a comment or leave a review. It’s not something I do, and if that’s the case, why should I expect it of my own audience. It was an eye opening experience that made Chandler and I look hard at what we were doing, and what was our future. Not as a site, or a company, but as a brand. What did we want Knotty Gamers to be.
So we rebooted. We dropped YouTube, Twitch, and all the other projects and did the one thing we knew we were doing well with, and put all of our resources into that. I hunkered down, and began learning more about sound editing, learning what sounded good, and what I could realistically fix in post, and what it meant to trash audio because it was too far gone. Chandler decided to go back to school and put an effort in learning what will be the technical side of our company’s future.
If there’s one thing I’m disappointed about, it’s that I have not kept the Podcast page of the website while we were keeping our podcast going. If you felt that we stopped the podcast because you weren’t seeing any updates here, I’m so sorry. From this point on it will be a priority to keep the site up to date.
After more than a year of no YouTube content, we have kick started a YouTube initiative with some really cool stuff in the pipeline that we feel encompasses a part of our repertoire that we haven’t been able to properly show off. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to get that as soon as it comes out.
But, until next time I’m the Unsexiest Comedian that you know, and stay complicated out there.
