My first You-Tube video, looking back
I have been making videos on You-Tube now since 2016. In November of that year is when I uploaded my first video ever " One man Logging". That took a lot of courage to do and looking back now I should have started sooner. I didn't tell my wife, my friends or anyone that I had uploaded a video to YT. Out of fear of judgement and other trivial matters I kept it to myself. Now just two year and 350 uploads later I finally feel like I am getting somewhere with my channel. Even though when compared to other more successful channels I appear to be lacking in views and subscribers I feel like my goals on my channel are finally coming to fruition. If you go back to my early videos you will see a drastic change in style,quality and story telling in my videos. In the fall of 2018 I started to see a constant growth with my views and subscribers that I had never seen before. I felt like finally my videos where breaking through and reaching people. As a video creator I always knew that if given the chance to be seen my videos would thrive on YT and someday pay off in a big way. This blog post isn't about my channel breakthrough or to say that I have reached my pinnacle of success it is more about the journey I have par taken to reach a small level of success on a crowded platform that isn't always welcome to new comers.
Some of the best advice I have ever read was to stop caring about what other people think. It wasn't until I started implementing that into my videos that I finally saw the growth that I was after. It wasn't until the summer of 2018 that I let go of that way of thinking totally and the results followed. I can only imagine that if I started off back in 2016 with that frame of mind where would my channel be today.
In closing this blog post is not about me it's about you if you were like me and held back due to the judgement of others. Let go of that vise and good things will
