Hey guys! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel (it is important). Also enter my Twitter giveaway!
So I just got an email that made me sad. YouTube is de-monetizing channels with less than 1,000 subscribers.
Subscriber count isn’t really something I was too worried about in the past, because my YouTube has always been a way for me to create video content to enrich my blog, which has always been my primary focus.
Regardless, I felt like I was creating great content and judging by the likes and comments on my videos a lot of you guys felt the same.
For me, blogging has always been more about creating content that I’m happy with and people enjoy, than it is about the numbers and how many followers or subscribers I have. I have always liked Youtube because it’s one of the few social media where your work speaks for itself. You don’t need to have a zillion followers. If you create content people are interested in, they will search for it and find it. If they want to stick around by subscribing, I’m happy. If they don’t want to, that’s also fine. It was never that serious to me one way or another.
Unfortunately, more and more lately, Youtube has been making it incredibly hard for smaller channels to grow on their platform. This latest debacle has just really made me tired, and put me in a position where I didn’t want to be: obsessing about numbers.
Anyway, the point is, I need 1,000 subscribers before February 20th, 2018 to prevent my channel from being de-monetized.
Please subscribe to my channel here to help me prevent that from happening.
