YouTube Milestones and Starter Tips
Hello WA Friends
I am so behind my WA SAC blogging - I've been busy doing many other things, but of course, excuses are only that...excuses. So, I'll try to make up for the lost time in the next few days.YouTube
Honestly, I could spend the whole day on YT (and, noooo, no I have not been doing that, promise).
There is so much to see and learn there.
This, of course is not news to me, but now, that I count myself as one of the YT Creators (yeeey) I'm taking a renewed interest in this platform.
I've been actively uploading videos in connection with my blog for the past month (or so) and as of today I have:
32 Uploaded videos
30 Subscribers (a big Thank You to Christina CLD111 who is my 30th subscriber!)
Of, course, in comparison to the big channels, these numbers are super-small, but I'm happy it's all going in the right direction.
If you'd like to subscribe to my YT channel, head over to my profile Follow Me On and the link is there. Thank you :)
Tiffany Domena (TDomena), inspired me to start uploading videos - Thank You so much for that.
I also try to upload daily. It's not always easy or possible, but I try to do stick to that schedule.
Uploading daily might sound like a lot, but I think, in the beginning, it's important to create a body of content and also to gather the experience of just talking into the camera.
I am learning how to express myself without too many umms and aams, and (very) slowly(!) things are improving.
Of course, one can always edit these out, but I try to save time on editing (for now) and do my videos mostly in one take.Lots of Work Ahead
If you've watched any of my videos, you'll see that the lighting is not great, nor that the sound quality is perfect.
I do think I need to fix this soonish, but I'm not stressing about it too much.
These exact things have stopped me from making videos in the past year, and when I think how many more videos I could have had by now, I wish I didn't get so hung up on the stuff that doesn't matter.
At least, it does not matter at the very beginning.
Have You Started Your YT Channel Yet?
Congratulations if you have, and hope you will start it soon if you haven't.
My advice would be just to do it. Even if your video is only a couple of minutes long, that is a couple of minutes longer than when you had 0 minutes.
Also, don't worry about all the extras. I've only started uploading thumbnails to my videos last week.
Tags as well.
Cards - did it only for one of the videos.
Sharing videos on Twitter - haven't started as yet.
End screen - End what???
Why am I sharing this?
Not just to show you there is a lot to do on YT (which you already know), but that it's not a paramount you do it all immediately.
It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the details one needs to do either on a blog or YT video.
So, to do it at all in the end, some tasks just have to wait right now. Or at least that is how I approach it.
Creating these 32 videos has been a great fun and a learning curve I've enjoyed going through.
Here's to the next 32 videos and the next 30 subscribers!
Thank you for stopping by :)
Have a great day/evening!
