Do you want a bigger bite of Bite Size Vegan? If you’ve been around my channel at all you know that my videos are always 5 minutes or less. So your brain may have exploded a little bit when my interview with Gary on monday was 5 minutes and 23 seconds! What the f*@#! was I thinking?!
Well here is where my head’s at: Bite Size Vegan is all about providing approachable education about veganism. I try to take complex concepts, research the crap out of them and distill them down into little Bite Size Vegan nuggets for your consuming pleasure. I want to provide you with the best information and video content that I can and I’m finding that sometimes I’m cutting out valuable information just to hit the 5 minute limit.
Now I’m not saying I’m going to start making 30 minute–long rambling videos–but there some cases where an extra 30 seconds to minute or two could really help enhance a video. In the case of Gary’s interview on monday, I had it all down to 5 minutes but in order to make it fit I had to have a number of jump cuts during pauses in dialogue. And it was kind of distracting. So I’m putting this to you, my Bite Size Vegan viewers: What do you think of me relaxing the 5 minute limit just a tad? You’ll still be getting power-packed vegan nuggets of awesomeness–maybe a little less rushed and jumpy.
Oh and another exciting announcement that I almost forgot to put in here: If you want to meet me in person, I’m going to be at VegFest in Orlando on October 25th as one of the day's speakers! So if you can make it out, be sure to come say hi–I'd love to meet you!
And while I have you for a moment, I want each and every one of you to know how very grateful I am for you watching my videos and sharing them around so that Bite Size Vegan can continue to grow and educate people about veganism. I very honestly and genuinely appreciate every single one of you and I really want you to know that. I’ve got a lot of exciting things coming up for the channel and the website, so do stay tuned!
For instance, if you just can’t get enough of me in these bite size nuggets–and let’s be honest, who can? You can now work with me personally! I just started offering vegan coaching, YouTube coaching, video services and more!
So anyways, let me know your thoughts on the idea of relaxing the 5 minute limit just a bit. (And get ready for more Gary Yourofsky on Monday!)
See ya next nugget!
