I don’t remember exactly how long it’s been since I started thinking about doing some sort of video program, but it’s probably been close to 15 years.
In that time, I’ve planned a number of projects and then backed out. I always had a good reason — or good excuse — but the core of it all is that I didn’t know what I was doing. I was afraid I would be humiliated. I thought I might look like a fool. So I came up with reason after reason to quit.
This time was different. I’m not entirely sure why. But whatever the reason is, the first episode is now online. You can watch it for yourself at the bottom of this article.
I had intended to call it David McElroy Live, but I changed it at the last second to the David McElroy Show. I realized that I wouldn’t always want to do the show live, so I wanted to give myself some flexibility to do prerecorded or live shows.
For now, my focus is on making the content at least 10 times more interesting and then gaining at least 100,000 subscribers. Unless I get much better — and quickly — I’m not going to attract the audience that could make the project worth the time and effort.
