So today I begin a grand experiment I first thought about doing a few years ago but didn't get around to starting. But since I find myself with the time (and the equipment to automate the entire process) I've decided to go ahead and launch what I like to call The Daily Trae.
What is The Daily Trae? The Daily Trae is a daily vlog where I merely rattle off the first thought that occurs to me that day. Each video may only end up being 10-30 seconds in length, but I promise it will be at least mildly interesting and at least a little bit weird.
Also, you'll get to see just how goofy my hair can look in the morning.
October is usually the time of year when I launch a new "season" of my regular vlog, and when I uploaded my last video, I realized I only did six videos for "Season 4" of it. Considering "Season 1" had forty-eight episodes... it's just dumbfounding. It has entirely to do with my available time though (Season 1 I was a college student) as my traditional vlogs require editing, music, and of course something interesting to show you.
So rather than launch "Season 5" I've decided instead that I would launch The Daily Trae - which requires no editing, no work, and pretty much whatever I can think of at any given time. Heck, as I can use my phone to shoot and upload the video, I don't even have to touch a computer.
For those of you who subscribe to my normal Youtube channel don't worry -- I won't be clogging up your subscriptions with dumb little thoughts. That channel will still be dedicated to my long form and edited videos. This new version of the vlog has it's own channel you can subscribe to if you want to.
I may eventually do more long form vlogs - but they'll perpetually be in Season 4 most likely... and I'll probably drop the Season/Episode numbers altogether. It was a lot of fun to do while it lasted, but in truth I find myself far too busy to spend the time I'd want to do those traditional vlogs.
In the end, I hope thing whole mess becomes entertaining. If it doesn't, there's no one to blame but me. On the upside though, it will at least be fun to do. And since no one is being forced to watch it, as long as I'm having fun, it's worth doing.
