Accountability 101: I Had No Idea How Long Instagram Reels Were Supposed To Be

There’s a pretty big controversy happening right now as we speak over here at WGG HQ2, and I just wanted to get in front of it before any dialogue starts up on it’s own. It’s my job as a co-founder of this website and a self-proclaimed leader in the gaming podcast and journalism space to do this, so here it is.

I’m old, and I just realized that I have no idea how to use the internet. I’ve been unknowingly posting two minute videos to Instagram Reels, without a clue that they got cut off halfway through. It’s been like three days and I just noticed it.

I know what you’re thinking, “Dom, are you talking about the new hit Twitter video series – Gaming News and Cold Brews?” and you would be correct. I figured hey, why not cross post these to Instagram Reels? Friend of the program LoochyTV has said previously that it’s an absolute wagon of a platform that is being severely underused, so I’d be crazy not to use it.

The intentions were there, but intention is not enough. I need to be better, and I know that now.

Truthfully, a lot of lesser men would have handled this differently. Probably wouldn’t have even had the heart to admit their mistakes. Previous-level content creators and small minds likely would just delete these videos and sweep their mistakes under the rug. Couldn’t be me. That’s the WGG difference, and that’s the level of #accountability I strive to bring to Wicked Good Gaming and our family of platforms and streams of content on a daily basis.

Thank you for reading, for understanding, and for bearing with me. It’s a long way to the moon, and there’s gonna be some turbulence here and there. As everyone with a MySpace profile once claimed that Marilyn Monroe once said – if you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best. And that reference, my friends, is how you know I’ve been on the internet way too fucking long.
