Trying a different type of 3D Printing video update - need feedback

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to get some feedback on the way I do things - please help - thanks.

I thought I would try a slightly different type of 3D Printing update - I'm still trying to work out how I should continue with project updates / review's and advice about 3D Printers / materials and stuff.

Feel free to give me any feedback - good points / bad points and any ideas of what you would like to see from a 3D Printing YouTube Channel and/or blog etc.

I keep on going with the Blog because sometimes a video can be a great end result and a blog can be easier to follow and read. Blog posts do require many times more work than a quick update video, so I'm trying to find the balance - Do you read my Blog posts? of just watch my videos?

In the past many of my blog posts were considered too long (big developments / review's ) or TLDR.

I don't want to fall into the trap of doing great long video's (unless that's something people want) - under 15 minutes seems like a good level.

Maybe I should do more 5 minute ones? (Even this one below turned out longer than I expected, but is short 'news' actually useful?)

I'm currently updating YouTube, Blogger, Twitter and G+ and often that seems like too much.

I have no interest in posting to Facebook - is that wrong?

Anyway back to the point of this post - A roundup of things that are going on in the community, and projects / products, components and materials I'm looking at right now -

Or watch on YouTube in HD here - and please consider subscribing to my channel, thanks.

In this video I talk a little about the following and more - 

The E3D Titan extruder and EDGE filaments -

Also supporting Support Gina Häußge with Octoprint


Tom's 3DP. 
Tom's Youtube channel -


And congratulations Nils on the new baby Zelda :)

WIO Link - Kickstarter

The OLO 3DPrinter - Kickstarter

Discussing Core XY / XZ / YE - that needs much more discussion...

Please let me know what you think. I really appreciate it.

And remember to check out Gina's Patreon funding for ongoing Octoprint development -
