When you show someone a post

Sometimes people just don't understand good comedy. That's not your fault. If they don't laugh it's their loss. This is an awkward moment for sure. I've had this happen so many times, I can't even count them.

Feeling blessed (random thoughts)

I took a few vacation days in the city near where I live. It was a nice break. Sometimes we all need a break.

Then I got back to making YouTube videos. I love making videos but sometimes I get burned out on it.

I'm thankful for all my blessings, God is good. It's finally fall but it still feels like summer here in Missouri.

Our weather is so wild here. We don't really have seasons in the same way other places do. It can get warm right in the middle of winter sometimes.

I had someone ask me today about my blog and how he could set one up. I told him blogger.com blogs are awesome.

I've always been a fan of blogger.

Fixing a bad attitude

A bad attitude can literally block blessings from coming into your life. I have learned this more and more. I have had problems with my attitude for a long time, ever since I can remember.

I am learning as I go along to be more grateful for everything I have. God has been so good to me. Sometimes we just need some perspective, to stop and look around, and realize how good we have it.

When we truly see that, how can we have a bad attitude?

Selling OUT? Making money online!?!?

When it comes to making money online? What would you consider "selling out"? A lot of people think that putting ads on your blog or YouTube videos is selling out.

It's really not. Lots of people make money online from blogging, YouTube, affiliate marketing, and so on.

There's nothing wrong with that. It's a real business for many people. So why do people judge them for that?

I understand some people don't like ads on a website, but realistically, it's commonplace now. Even on YouTube.

Almost every video has ads on it now. People have to make a living. You can't fault them for that. I personally think it's awesome if a blogger is able to make money from it, more power to them!

I don't feel like it's selling out to place ads there. It's just a part of the whole package deal. I don't feel like it takes away from the experience at all in my opinion. 

YOUTUBE PRESSURE!?

I feel like there's all this "pressure" when you're a YouTuber. I guess there's pressure with lots of things in life, but as a YouTuber, there's all this pressure to make "quality content." What does that even mean?

If I make a video that I had fun making and I'm doing what I enjoy, that's all that matters to me. I don't want to be like everyone else on YouTube.

That takes away the fun of it for me. I just want to have fun making the type of videos that I want to make.

I mean sure I can always strive to make my content better, but I'm not going to sell out. I have a passion for making vlog type videos. That's what I like doing.

I need that timesheet ASAP!!!!

Office cat. He is very much a business cat. He's trying to get work done. You have to understand that. He is very professional. Would you expect any less from a true business cat? He works in an office of a large corporation. He is very efficient at getting the job done. He knows his business stuff very well. He is a great business cat. He has paperwork on his desk that he's shuffling through. He'll stand outside your office meowing until it's done.

LONGER YouTube videos are BETTER!!??

There are a ton of different reasons why it's better to make long videos on YouTube. Not only do longer videos rank better in search, but they also make more money from ad revenue. Of course, you need to keep people watching through a good deal of your video.

Which is the real trick sometimes! But if you can do that, you're golden! Making longer videos (10 minutes or more) is a great, solid strategy for growing your YouTube channel and subsequently making a lot more revenue from YouTube.

Not every video has to be long, but you should have a good number of long videos on your channel. You will see a lot of growth if you do that, I guarantee it. It's just a smarter strategy.
