What I’ve Learned

So my channel has continued to grow. I’ve gone from 0 subscribers to 44 in little over a month. I’m certainly happy with that growth rate. Hell, I can hardly believe 5 people pushed the subscribe button sometimes. Every time I get a new subscriber, I jump for joy…sometimes literally.

I’ve really enjoyed the whole process. I’ve learned an incredible amount about making videos and I’m still learning like crazy.

For example, a few videos ago I was adding in all my video clips, including my intro and outro and then adding in my commentary and editing it so that the narration didn’t overlap with my intro and outro. It was a terribly frustrating, time consuming process.

Turns out…it was unnecessary. Instead, what I should have been doing was adding in just the action clips, then narration and putting my intro and outro in last.

So simple and so obvious once I did it, but I had never thought of it in previous videos. Pretty much each video I learn something new – sometimes something large and sometimes something small.

I’ve also had a blast finding small channels I didn’t know existed on YouTube and interacting with them. The YouTube community is so much more than the large channels with thousands upon thousands of subscribers. I’m almost ashamed that I had ignored these channels before I began my own.

Anyhow, that’s it for now. If you’d like to check out my newest video, you can find it below. If you like it, I hope you’ll take a second to subscribe and like the video.

If you’re reading this – have a wonderful day!

When PEKKA’s Attack

So I managed to push another video out today. You can find it below. I plan on recording another one, since I have the house to myself for a bit. I’m going to be playing Dumb Ways To Die 2. I’ve never played it before. I just went to the app store and grabbed a random game from the ‘most popular new’ category and I plan on giving it a shot, while recording my first impressions of the game.

So yeah…that’s pretty much it.

Hope you all have a great New Year tonight. I plan on hanging out with the wife, watching some movies and eating some supper. Not much. Not too exciting but relaxing nevertheless. I’m certainly looking forward to it.

Merry Lootmas!

Last night after our X-Mas eve supper, once everything had died down, I completed my latest video. My wife was looking at me funny, as I settled down to record the narrative.

It went something like this:

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The headset was hung by the computer with care,
In hopes that Cranium soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of YouTube stars danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for recording before a long winter’s nap.

Or something like that anyways.

Don’t judge me.

Anyways, you can check out the video below. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas full of cheer, good food and family.

Welcome to My New Blog

Welcome to my new blog!

I’ve decided to create this blog to follow my YouTube experiences. Until a few weeks ago, I’d never dreamed of starting up a YouTube channel, but I decided to do so a bit ago and found that I loved it. Making videos is awesome! There is so much to learn and do. Literally, every video has a slight improvement. My first few videos were very hard to hear, but then I learned how to fix that. I went from using a free video recorder to using an Elgato, and now I’m learning more each day about editing video. Today I’ve diligently been working on adding music to my intro and outro and I’m excited that I managed to find and put together something I think works fairly well.

So if you have a channel, please feel free to drop a link in the comments section. I’ll check it out for sure.

That’s it for now. I’ll have more in the future. You can check out my last video I made below.

Cheers and Merry X-Mas!
