Hey guys! First of all, let me thank you for being here. I know there is about a million other places you could be spending your time online and you chose to spend it with me. That means a lot and I can’t thank you enough.
The reason I’m putting this post together is I’ve recently had one of my long time subscribers write me an email saying he thought I should be a little more open about who I am as a person. I thought that was kind of cool that you guys might care to get to know me on more of a personal level than just that guy who reviews guns.
I’ve been doing this video thing for quite a while now and although I don’t have a gigantic viewer base like some YouTubers, I’m honestly humbled by how many people take a few minutes out of their day to watch some of my videos. I really do consider Green Light Shooting to be a big part of my life and therefore, I consider my subscribers to be like a little family. I’m not talking about the guy who comes by and watches one of my big videos, leaves an insensitive comment, and I never hear from him again. I’m talking about those of you that watch every video I put out (even the ones with 300 views total) and leave meaningful comments. I want you to be a bigger part of my life and I hope to be a bigger part of yours.
That’s why I’m going to start a VLOG. This will be in addition to all the videos I normally do. So don’t worry, it won’t take the place of any of the bigger review or tips and tricks videos. These VLOGs will just be me and a camera talking about what’s going on with GLS. That might include giving you guys insight into future videos, asking you for your input and opinions on stuff, telling you about a new cool knife I picked up, taking you behind the scenes on some of the bigger shoots, or just bringing you along to some of the bigger happenings in my personal life. 2015 is a HUGE year for me. My fiance and I are getting married in August. We’re buying our first home. I’m releasing a book for Green Light Shooting. All sorts of crazy stuff that I want those of you who care to be a part of.
So I’m going to start posting at least 1 of these videos a week and if there’s more to say, I’ll post more. I don’t expect to get a lot of views on these videos and I’m fine with that. I just want you let those of you who care and that have supported me along the way into my world. I want you to get to know me on a more personal level and really feel like you’re involved with where GLS is headed.
Like I said, these won’t interfere with the normal videos so I’ll make sure to keep those coming. I’m actually putting together an official release schedule on when I’ll be releasing videos, blog posts, vlogs and more. That way, you guys will always be in the loop and it will help me to stick to a more regular schedule as well. I’ll put out a post with that schedule once I get it finalized.
Anyway, thanks again for sharing your time with me. I know the blog has been fairly slow to get going but I promise it’ll pick up. I’m still getting the hang of this.
