Retro Spills The Beans II: Awakening of The Toast/Why I'm Not Doing Episode Reviews Anymore

For context, please watch:


Now that we have got that out the way, allow us to proceed.


Greetings. I am Retro. An ex-reviewer of MLP episodes. Why? I don't like doing it anymore? Yes, but there is more to it, and I want those who are either small in the Bronalysis community or are trying to start up an MLP reviewing channel to read this, because this is important.


Something I've noticed about the Bronalysis Community is how hard it is for the little guy to find their footing. Now, when I started, I knew I wasn't gonna be big overnight, I highly doubted I would ever be a big deal. So why did I do it? Because I loved doing it, and when I had people comment on my reviews, saying that I should do more, it kept me going. It made me want to push myself as a person and a reviewer. So why did I stop? Because the Bronalysis community isn't what I would deem a welcoming place anymore. You can't really do anything original, because you've only just started out, and people just think you're someone trying to cash in on the reviewing ordeal, when it's actually something you enjoy, and they brush you off and don't give you a chance.


I've heard a lot of people who are very popular in The Bronalysis Community say in videos and livestreams, that if you want to do MLP episode reviews, don't do them because "there's too many reviewers already". This is what I mean by an unwelcoming place. If you wanna do something you love, do it. It doesn't matter if there are too many reviewers, you deserve a chance of doing what you love as much as anyone else. If at first you don't succeed in what you love, trying something else and finding enjoyment in it is the next step to success online.


I'd suggest putting your own unique spin on the reviewing episodes formula, and eventually you'll have a style of reviewing that makes you stand out and gets you more attention. Why don't I do this? Because like I said, I don't enjoy reviewing episodes anymore. It's boring to me and just a chore to do nowadays, but if it's what you love, then do it, make yourself known and do what you love, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mind.


Retro out.
