    As the title says, I'm going away for a week, on my channel I only post twice a week but it takes a while for me to make my contant. I don't want to just no post for a week, what should I do?

    Well, you could either record/edit in advance and schedule the videos to come out during the week, or you could make a quick video informing your viewers that you'll be away for a week :)

    I'd definitely have a video scheduled to post at your normal time if you can. Consistency is key! :cool:

    I guess that depends on how fast you want to grow a channel. If you can pre plan a vacation, you can plan a scheduled video. Even if it’s a “I’m going on vacation quickie”. YouTube rewards consistency. Try and upload at least 1 video a week to speed up a channels YouTube growth.

    Or just take your break and get back on it when you come back. I take off the last half of every December, and usually the week of 4 July. Just take a break and get back on it when you get back.

    You didn't start this in order to have another job. You get to decide when and how much content you'll make. That's your decision, not anyone else. You run your YouTube Channel, not letting your channel run you.

    Consistency also mean consistently taking breaks. You have to prevent burn out. You need to define how many videos you will produce per year, not per week. If it's 100 videos per year, you can define when and how those video get uploaded.

    I know some channels have a summer and winter schedule. Again you decide, not letting the channel run you. Otherwise you could stay at whatever miserable day job you may have.

    I try and schedule videos for when I'm away. There is no rule that says you have to make content.

    I tend to schedule my videos while I'm out. I've seen a lot of people who started at the same rate of growth as I did at the same time start to take breaks, and one break tends to lead to another, and the whole thing can snowball. It can be hard to gain momentum after you've gone away, especially when you're just starting out.
