[Heads up! I know all of you know what We're Alive (and hopefully) what We're Not Dead is. This was originally written for my own, personal site, so some people might not have known. I was too damn lazy to take that part out. SO THERE YOU GO. <3]
If there’s anything I’ve discovered about myself in the past few years, it’s that I’m a workaholic. My mind is constantly churning with ideas. What article can I write for BlondeNerd? What news article can I post on Zaxy? What topics can I bring up in We’re Not Dead? What news should I bring up for n00bketeers? What video I can make for my YouTube channel?
Planning and executing these ideas doesn’t classify as “working” to me because I effin’ love it. But anymore I’ve found it hard to sit back and relax. Like zone-out-and-take-a-nap relax. I need to be doing something or I feel like I’m slacking off. That being said, I’ve mastered juggling these projects. Although a typical week is always hectic and crazy busy, there’s never an issue with getting things done. Therefore, these projects have become a daily part of my life and I don’t feel like I’m being challenged.
So being the idiot that I am, I’ve decided to start a new project: I’m going to build a new website and create a video channel dedicated to We’re Not Dead.
Okay, some of you might be scratching your head or rubbing your beard right now, thinking, “Well shit, that was anti-climactic. What’s We’re Not Dead?”
Long story short: We’re Not Dead is a community podcast I host, along with Greg Miller, about the audio drama podcast We’re Alive. Essentially, we are a podcast about a podcast. Since We’re Alive has such a dedicated and active community, We’re Not Dead’s job is to discuss episodes of We’re Alive and bring the community’s voice to listeners around the world. ::flashes cheesy carsalesman-esque smile::
But seriously, We’re Not Dead is so much more than a podcast that recaps episodes of We’re Alive. We run community contests, discuss We’re Alive news, interview the actors and do whatever else we can. There is a LOT going on in the We’re Alive universe fans don’t know about unless they frequent the forums. Did you know We’re Alive is plotting to livestream the Season 2 finale? Did you know they were just recently picked up by a kickass publisher and you’ll soon be able to find their product in stores? Did you know there’s a Gatekeeper’s Bad Day contest underway? DID YOU KNOW KC IS BALD?! Do you even know who Kc is?!!!
The video channel will serve as a means to “out” the type of information I listed above. Instead of scouring each forum thread, folks will be able to see the information compiled in a short but sweet 3-5 minute video. The website itself will serve as a central hub for all things We’re Not Dead. It’ll have an official blog, information about the hosts, fan-submitted stuff, videos, links to the podcasts, etc.
I’ve created the YouTube account, registered the domain name…I’m set!
…now I just need some free time.
Let me know if there’s anything in particular you want to see on either the website or on the video channel. THANKS! <30 Thanks, 0 Likes, 0 Dislikes, 0 Add to Bug Hunter, 0 Grammar, 0 WAPoints
