Being a YouTube success story is no easy task. That is of course unless you’ve already got some sort of celebrity status which already comes with a considerable following. Being a YouTube success sometimes happens from sheer luck. Say for example you happen to upload a video and someone with a vast subscriber base happens to see it and love it so much that he shares it with his followers. They, in turn, jump on the bandwagon and before you know it the video had gone viral.
Being A YouTube Success My Story
Unfortunately, none of my videos has been picked up by YouTube celebrity or newscast, and so like many other YouTubers, I’m continually slugging away trying to get a decent subscriber base. Which is cool because I’m used to working hard to get what I want.
Just last month I managed to get the 4,000 hours and 1,000 subscribers needed to monetise my site. A month later YouTube contacted me to notify me I was now able to monetise my videos. Whoo Hoo! Then a week later I find that I lost nearly 100 subscribers because YT used their algorithm to remove what they consider to be ‘spam’ subscribers. You may well have noticed your subscriber base decrease?
Luckily I’m still monetised, but I’m not sure how long that is going to last. If you haven’t subscribed yet, you can do so here.
My Latest Videos
In my efforts to not only boost subscribers but to maintain my 4,000 hours of viewing time I’ve been producing at least 4 videos per month. I may have to try and increase my efforts. 🤪
My latest video is called Only In Australia and shows a heap of images of things that can only be found in Australia. Some of those images are quite remarkable. Like then one below for example. I don’t know about you but having that jumping out of the water so close to me would scare the shit out of me.
Then there is my Funniest Sex Jokes video. Wouldn’t you believe it was just my luck that someone flagged that video which caused YouTube to slap an age restriction on it, as well as de-monetising it! Naturally, I appealed the decision, and this is the response I got.
Thank you for submitting your video appeal to YouTube. After further review, we’ve determined that while your video does not violate our Community Guidelines, it may not be appropriate for a general audience. We have therefore age-restricted your video.
Really? What do you think? Should my Really funny Sex Jokes have an age restriction slapped on it?
I thought my Dr Phil Joke would do better, but unfortunately, YouTubers don’t seem to be interested in it. Either that or it’s not showing up in peoples searches. Come to think of it that’s most likely the real reason as Dr Phil is a pretty popular topic.
Once again, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel. 👍
