Sometimes, I know a byte I make isn’t going to be as popular as others from the jump. I still post it anyways. Partly, hoping on the off chance it’s an accidental hit. Mostly, though, it’s because post consistency is most important above all.
On the internet, (typically) it’s the people who post with regularity who eventually make it to the top. So, even if a byte I make isn’t golden (statistically, it’s impossible for every video to be a smash hit), I know that it will at least go towards my goal of consistency.
Though, this isn’t to say you should put out something you legitimately dislike. I’m very meticulous and do a massive amount of workshopping and test footage before committing to making the concept into a byte.
Then of course, there’s the algorithm needing improvement - which the byte staff has acknowledged and is working on. Everything I make gets “lost in new”, so to speak. What comforts me is that 1) a fix is coming, and 2) There’s a chance an old video will be rediscovered eventually, should someone see a new byte and then go scrolling through my channel.
Especially remember too, this is a young app, so it’s natural that there won’t be massive numbers of internet points being passed around
Ultimately though, what matters (as others have said) is that you like the videos you’re putting out. Just focus on having fun with it, and letting your ideas come into reality.
