It’s time I call time on the Blitz videos. I’ve got a ton of things I’m doing in life right now, and don’t see myself ever really having the time to work on more Blitz videos. I think I’ve made a good contribution, 512 subscribers, 18211 views shows that I’d made some difference in the world. But I’ve just not got the spare time anymore to do this stuff. It takes several hours to make the most simple video and upload it, and then I get hundreds of comments asking me for help. I feel bad not replying to your all, but I just don’t have the time. I’ve got a ton of personal issues I’m working on, and just can’t spare the time needed for this anymore.
Best advice I can give is to look at other people on Youtube doing Blitz programming videos, use the forum on www.blitzbasic.com and remember to use Google to find answers to your coding queries.
I’m not saying this next bit to take a dig at anyone, but you do have to remember one thing in life. You’ve got to go for the things you really want in life. If it’s sitting in every night programming games in your bedroom, then okay, carry on. But if your sat there right now, browsing the web, or trying to write something in Blitz3D, stop and ask yourself honestly whether you could be doing something more rewarding, like getting out and joining a sports club, where you’ll meet lots of other people, even just go down to the pub, what ever it is, do it. The computer will still be there when you’re done, just don’t let life pass you by.
I ran half a marathon on Sunday and am taking my black belt in taekwondo in April, I’m also 18 months into the best relationship I’ve ever been in. None of that could be happening if I’d carried on spending every night sat home playing on the laptop. So get out there and live life, and no raids in Wow don’t count (trust me I’ve been there).
