I Forgot YouTube: Work On Your Craft

I forgot how YouTube works.

I had to look through my channel’s data today and begin to figure out why my last two videos didn’t even hit the 1k mark. It’s a little embarrassing because I could hit that number pretty well back in the day.

It’s okay. It’s about re-learning and being critical. When it comes to my work, I’m never satisfied. And, right now, I don’t have anything to say I am even proud of my work.

With that said, let’s get to some analysis for a second.

I was going to copy / paste stats but rather I’m just going to talk things out and go from there…

The Three P’s of YouTube

What I’ve learned from building YouTube channels, is how difficult it can be in the beginning: every single episode must be perfect, every episode should be setting up the next episode, and every episode should be promptly uploaded on a specific time and date. Then, even after following this formula, you have to wait at least 3-4 months to see if your efforts mean anything.

It’s the three P’s

Perfection

Persistence

I’m eh

I’m not so happy…

I recently posted a video regarding how I got fired and I’m happy, but not so happy with the video. There is a scene I had to cut out that would’ve changed the video in a different direction. Basically, the scene showcases a few of my coworkers really sad and upset – due to the fact that I was let go.

It would’ve shown like some sense of vulnerability.

This is the one thing I’m actually upset about…

It’s eating me up inside because I feel like that’s the #1 thing missing from the video: vulnerability and the fact that people loved me at my last job. It’s hard to tell your story when you have to hide parts that show your true personality. I’m really scared about my next videos but holy shit… I can only imagine what the world is about to see: I care about honesty and I’m about to be honest.

No Bad Blood

I recently published a video on YouTube about being let go. I want to clarify one thing, I want people to know that there is no bad blood between anyone I’ve worked with in the past. Yes, I was let go, but in the video I never say one bad word about the company. Why? Because I couldn’t . We left on actually great terms. They are beautiful people and without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

This is all 😀
