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…

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 😀

Why Instagram Vlogs Will Rule 2018

I’m going to warn you that I haven’t written in sometime. As a way to get back into the groove of things, I’m going to write about a theory I have when it comes to Instagram. This may not be the best written piece I’ve ever done. There might be grammatical errors, who knows. It’s all about getting back into the groove of things. Here goes nothing…

I believe that 2018 is the year of Instagram.

I understand – Facebook is making a massive push to popularize Facebook watch. However, a successful Facebook watch page comprises of professionally made video content:  we’re talking HD quality, we’re talking about engaging stories where each video lasts more than two minutes and thirty seconds, and we’re talking about pages that can posts these types of videos consistently.

This is the watch’s algorithm: must be followed for your page to be successful. You can see this first hand as Facebook watch has partnered with brands like NFL, reality television syndications, buzzfeed, and other big brands who can create these high-production quality videos consistently.

Therefore, Facebook watch is for the serious video creator who has the resources and team to create these high quality story-esq videos.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with what Facebook is doing. But, if you’re a new creator trying to start out, I really don’t think Facebook watch is a friendly place to upload your content. 2015-2017 was the year for Facebook, but now that Facebook watch’s new algorithm is taking a hold of the reigns…

I’ve come to the conclusion that Instagram will be the place for new creators. It’s the platform of 2018. It is the platform where new creators can obtain a loyal, engaged fan base… fast.

Let me explain.

High

On my mind because I’m high!

When I tell people I have manic depression and live with PTSD, many think I’m roaming around the world lost, confused, in pain, and of course… depressed.

These feelings do occur. However…

I think they tend to forget about the other component of mania, the component when my serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin levels are spiking with such a surge that when I close my eyes, I can actually see the neurons shooting off in every direction!!

God!

I LOVE THIS FEELING!

It feels as if some ghost like, holy spirit figure is massaging the insides of my brain. It feels as if a five-star masseuse is stroking my head while simultaneously pulling the strands giving a lover’s touch a run for their money.
