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!

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!
