I know a lot of y'all support several of my shows, so I wanted to let you know what's up before TekThing posted today.
For reference, here are my important links:
TekThing was created by Patrick and I back in December of 2014, which was a big turning point in my career. Tekzilla was over, I was leaving TWiT, and Patreon had just became a thing. Knowing that we could potentially create our own independent show that could be crowdfunded by our biggest fans and allow us to continue making epic content for your all meant the absolute world to me, and still does. You need lots of passion, motivation, and integrity to work in this field without burning out - and I hope that our love of tech comes across on the other side of the camera in each and every episode.
We've done over 200 episodes of TekThing together in the Hak5 studio over 4 1/2 years and just a few here in Patrick's home studio. As with every show, they're always changing with the times and I knew this year would be a year of major change (my tarot cards totally called it!).
This is our last episode of TekThing this week, but it's not my last tech show. In fact, I've started doing tech reviews and highlighting awesome gear on my YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/shannonmorse - where I'll be consistently posting 2+ videos per week about travel and technology, with an emphasis on security as usual. I've even opened up my own Patreon under the same name: https://www.patreon.com/ShannonMorse - which is where you can ask me tech questions, get secret travel tips only locals know, and get access to high res travel photography by yours truly. And I've got some other snazzy perks in store too!
To celebrate this big change, I'm hosting a giveaway on my youtube channel! Subscribe and comment on my smartphone camera shootout video at https://www.youtube.com/shannonmorse for a chance to win a new Pixel 3a! And if you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Patreon, those'll be counted as extra entries. https://www.instagram.com/snubs/ and https://twitter.com/Snubs
My passion, since I was a 9 year old building computers with my dad, has always been technology, and always will be. Whether I'm sharing that love through a network, a co-hosted show, or my personally branded channel, I'm never but a youtube video away!
So thank you to all of our incredible viewers, Patreon supporters, and biggest advocates, for making this show so successful. Here's to you, and here's to a new chapter in my own life. I hope you'll consider supporting my new content. Keep doing something analog, be a positive force, and always follow what you believe in. I love you all!
Whew! And with that said, know that this does open up a realm of new possibilities for my creative content. While, yes, I am losing quite a bit of income with the loss of TekThing, I'm also very excited to begin a new path in my career. I've already started uploading more content to my youtube channel (linked above), and I've already started brainstorming new things for Patreon. ThreatWire (my show on Hak5) is 100% full steam ahead and I am so full of appreciation and love for that show, for my personal channel, and for y'all.
Thank you for supporting me <3
