What’s My Channel About??

You’ve probably noticed that my channel has taken a swish into film photography and film developing. As I’ve always said my interests are always random and impulsive, therefore my channel naturally ends up going the same way.
Though I can tell whenever I switch subjects/topics/interests on my channel that some get fearful that i’m going to ditch a certain topic for good, which of course is not the case :o) I can understand why some people want my channel to be only about a certain thing and for it to stay that way.
However, there are two major issues with that, firstly,
Person A wants my channel to be Only about Amiga. Person B wants my channel Only to be about vintage audio.
Person C wants my wants my channel to Only be about electronics.
Person D wants me to feck off from the internet altogether, forever, which makes me listen more to person E who loves the randomness, sometimes impulsiveness of my content and appreciates me being there…Thank you :o)
( Just to be clear, nobody has complained to me or sent me nasty comments or anything, but I can sense a bit of discomfort in certain people when I change topics. I’m writing this just to remind that I tend to go back to all topics )
With regards to person A, B and C. Well all three prove that you cannot please everyone. Different people have different interests. There will always be someone who is unhappy with your content, or wish it was leaning towards their personal interests, whatever you choose to do. At the end of the day, it’s me who is putting all the effort into the content creation. And quite an effort it is when you don’t have a team and are doing everything by yourself.
I’m very thankful that I have a variety of interests so I can create videos and content about multiple interests :o)

I’m into many things being the curious soul that I am and if I don’t let my heart flow into my videos, if I have to limit it, well that’s like asking a painter to stop painting, or a musician to stop playing music.

Around four years back I did a talk about this as I got different people trying to pull my interests and content into different directions. Despite the video being four years old from a naive Maddi from the past, the message is still relevant. Enjoy :o)
