Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Unless you're specifically targeting people who literally cannot read...

Please don't.

Sincerely, A Person Who Doesn't Have Literal Free Hours To Hear You Slooooowly Say Something It Would Take Me Five Seconds To Read And Also I Can Ctrl-F It

@natecull personally I prefer text too, but for lots of people, a talky video is actually easier. Different people need information in different formats, and even if I skip the videos in annoyance, it is important that they exist.


@maunzi @natecull Sometimes I have a hard time focusing on text and it can be helpful to have a video playing in the background.

But other times I'm not in the mood for a video, so it's nice to have options. When people can provide both that's great, but it takes a lot of effort
