On Blogging Silence, Youtube, Podcasts and Paetreon

I’ve not been updating a lot lately. I’m not sorry.

I’m not going to make any excuses, I’ve just had to pick and choose and I’ve decided to not pump out half-arsed posts but instead not post at all. What I am sorry for is not deciding to tell you sooner. I kept thinking I’d be able to get back to more frequent posting sooner, but it just didn’t work out.

That being said, once the fall semester ends, I’m going to be working on a few things. First, I want to move this site over to be self-hosted. I want to be able to do pretty much whatever I want with The Bento Buff, and I feel like using wordpress.com is holding me back a bit. Next, I want to regularly record videos for the YouTube channel, and start up a podcast. That noted, in regards to my time and such, I think to make these quality, I’d need to cut back the number of regular bento posts to the site, but I intend for it all to be quality. I’ve also been working on going Zero Waste, so I’m getting used to preparing more foods from scratch instead of just slapping Gardein products in it(did you know their packaging is not recyclable?).

I’d like to launch a Paetreon to help pay for the hosting costs, too. I wonder what you guys would like as rewards for subscribers. Maybe monthly bento giveaways, extra videos, or extra podcast episodes or something of the sort?

Regardless, expect a little more silence as I work on the rest of the semester. I’ve been having a lot of fun on Instagram as of late, so if you want to say hi, hit me up on there or Twitter!
