4 January 2021.
8:03am – I woke up much later than usual today. The weather is still slightly cold here early mornings. I know when the cold season is finished, I’ll be able to spring out of bed each morning much more easily. Yes, I have my usual coffee here with me as I write this. I didn’t upload any Youtube videos for almost a whole week. I’ve been thinking a lot about Youtube over the last few days.
The last couple of weeks I was focused on trying to increase my Youtube views, which is why I had been posting short 1-minute exciting videos only. Although this seems to have been working, and now each video is getting 200 or 300 views (which is very good for my channel), I do not feel it is what I want. In order to increase my video views, I have been trying to follow what Youtube wants, and I have been trying to play to Youtube’s algorithm, and like I said, it has been working. But at what cost? I know my real fan’s and followers want to see more in-depth videos where I talk about topics relating to supernatural powers. So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to make the videos and content that I want to make, not what Youtube wants (I’m tired of trying to please Youtube’s algorithm). If I have to have less views on my videos, then so be it. This means that I’ll be going back to my old style where I upload videos more often, with longer videos.
The last few weeks, some days I’ve really wanted to make a video talking about a certain topic, but I stopped myself because I knew Youtube’s algorithm would not appreciate it. I can’t be thinking like that! I need to be making videos that I know my followers will appreciate. That’s the most important thing.
So, like I said, the next few days I’ll be making a lot more videos just talking, like I used to, about various topics relating to developing superpowers. I will still be making an effort to improve the quality of my videos. In March I plan to purchase a much higher quality camera to shoot my Youtube videos, so some of you may be happy about that.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is that I want to make interesting content for you guys, while still staying true to my heart, and not being a slave to Youtube’s algorithm. So let’s see what happens in the next few months 😊
