I know every show isn’t going to be a gem. I know every show isn’t going to be perfect or up to your standards of what we are used to. But know that we try. I try very hard every night to bring something new, and entertaining. The majority of time, the guests are going to work. Sometimes we are going to have some stinkers. I know this. I worry about it every night. What I’m trying to do is bring new voices in these subjects to the table. Not all of them are going to be rock stars. I want you to hear different opinions rather than the same old, same old every single night.
Also, please understand that while we are growing SOR to new levels, on a personal level, I’m tired. I work usually six to seven days a week, with only a few hours a day to relax and calm down. Sunday is usually that day. But there’s always work to be done. I work, on average, 15 to 17 hours a day. I have my daytime job which comes with an immense amount of responsibility. I have the show, where I do all of the booking, I produce, I do all the commercials, I edit, I am my own researcher, and I host the show. On top of that, I try to respond to each and every one of you at a quick turn around so that way you don’t feel left out or ignored.
The only thing I ask for in return, is when you’re in my chat room, that I pay for, be cordial. If you don’t like a guest, there’s no need for a cheap shot. There’s no need for a snide comment. There’s no need to fire a shot over my bow. Or make comments about muting the show and turning YouTube on, but continue chatting anyway. I work way too damn hard for that type of disrespect. And frankly, I’m bothered by some of the comments I’ve read lately. I’m doing my best to entertain you. But remember, with me owning that chat room, I have no problem piping up and saying something. Which is what I’m doing in my blog today.
Take a walk in my shoes. Where I pretty much have no family life. My little guy I haven’t cuddled and put to bed in months. I haven’t been on a date with Mrs. SOR in over a year. I don’t help with homework or many of those daily house hold chores, because I’m working my ass off for all of you, and SOR. Try averaging five to six hours of sleep a night, where even though you’re sleeping, your mind is always racing. Take a walk in my shoes for a month. Everyone who is in my inner circle wouldn’t even dare to. Yet I do. For you, and the dream of SOR becoming something incredibly special. You can come along for the ride or your can fire your arrows from the outside. That choice is yours. But I’m going to keep busting my ass to make this happen because I know this is something I need to do. For me, and for all of you!
