UPDATE: 21st September 2021
There's been a lot going on lately! - Minecraft Marketplace partner - Truly Bedrock Audio Book - Merchandise Issues - YouTube Membership Improvements
It's another lovely Tuesday, time to reflect on all of the things that have been going on recently I think...
First of all I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of my amazing supporters whether you're a Patreon, channel member, member of the discord or just a regular watcher of my videos. You're all wonderful and you make it easy to continue to enjoy doing what I do every day. So thank you ♥
So what's gone on this week?
If you've been living under a rock lately, you might not have heard that last week I became a Minecraft Marketplace Partner which is amazing news. I'm looking forward to getting to work on some fun maps and projects for that. It'll take a few weeks to be fully integrated onto the system, but I'll keep everyone up to date as things progress.
This week I've been focussing on putting together a BIG story episode for Truly Bedrock Season 3. The story will bring together a lot of tail ends of stories that have been building up for a long time, some even before Truly Bedrock started.. so make sure to check that out.
I'll be doing a Premiere on that on Friday 24th at 4pm BST
Also, going forward, I'm going to be dropping Truly Bedrock to 1 episode per week and filling the gap with weekly tutorial videos for the near future at least.
I've had a few ups and downs with Merch lately. As you might know I use TeeSpring and Spreadshirt for providing merch, with TeeSpring integrated into my Youtube and Twitch channels. Spreadshirt is great, but it requires you to have a different store for each country you're supplying to, which makes things in terms of administration and consistency quite tricky as different countries have different items available and different prices.
Teespring however, makes life easier on that front, however I realised this week that they've been taking down my listings that don't earn enough profit, meaning when I'm posting links to different items, they've often disappeared off the site without notice. They don't tell me when this happens so it's impossible to manage.
So, I'm going to be moving away from TeeSpring and putting more designs and items onto Spreadshirt again.
This week I also updated my channel memberships to match Patreon as closely as possible. There are some pricing variations due to limitations & restrictions, but the perks at each Tier are exactly the same. So if you are a YouTube channel member and you've not claimed your perks, then please contact an Admin on my discord to get sorted. ?
Recently I redecorated my office which looks pretty snazzy now, so that's great and not too long ago I did two weeks of daily streaming (excluding weekends), which went great and I'm actually really missing doing them.
I would like to say I'm going to continue, however I don't want to make that promise as I've got a WHOLE bunch of things going on at the moment, but I will try make them a little more regular than just my Tuesday and Thursday streams.
You might not know, but I've been filming and editing some Dog Training videos for a local company. Those have been very successful so far and I'll be going back in early October to film another few episodes which I'm really happy about.
Am I leaving TB?
All round, things are feeling pretty good at the moment. Things on all fronts seem very positive and I'm super thankful and super grateful for all of the help and support you guys give every day.
So again, thank you and no! I'm not leaving Truly Bedrock lol
