My 100th YouTube Video

Hey guys, I’ve just uploaded my 100th YouTube video, and I am pretty stoked about it. I put a fair bit of effort into it, and I think it came out pretty well. The video covers two subjects. The first it about the remarkable Australian trees and the second part is one of my cool short stories. Both those links will take you to the same video, I’m just using some SEO to give the video a bit of link juice.  :tongue_laugh_ee:

My Short Story On YouTube

Some of the special effects in that video included my newly acquired green screen. I love it as it allows me to have some pretty cool backgrounds in my video. One of which is a video of my fireplace. In my video, I tried to set the storyline my telling my viewers that it’s taking place in around a fire. I thought the video of the fire with the crackling background noise was a pretty cool effect.

I also explained at the beginning of the video that I’m aiming to make all my future videos deaf and hearing impaired friendly. To do that I have included a transcript in the form of scrolling text, of my story. That was actually the hardest part of the video. Trying to match the speed of the text with my voice. Still, I think I did a pretty good job.

I also used The Creator to make my video thumbnail stand out. Hopefully, that will attract more viewers.

The video is only 9 minutes long so with a bit of luck they will watch it the whole way through. That will bring my hours up and maybe even get some new subscribers. Speaking of which you can help by subscribing to my channel.

If you have the time, I’d love for you to have a look at the video and perhaps leave a comment of what you thought about it.

My YouTube Bonza Intro

My YouTube Bonza Intro video had its debut today. They say that your first video on YouTube should be one that introduces you to the YouTube world. For me, it was my 99th. Video. After all these years on YouTube, I finally produced my YouTube Bonza intro video! Because it was such an important video, I put a lot of work into it to ensure it was one of my best videos.

Introducing My YouTube Bonza Intro Video

YouTube bonza introI decided to call it My YouTube Bonza intro because I wanted my channel to be something easily remembered. And what could be easier than My Bonza Channel? That and it reflects my Aussie heritage as well.

In all my videos I always try to ensure that I have excellent lighting to produce the best quality video possible. Like I said in the video above I make sure I film in HD so that even if viewers watch it in the fullscreen mode, they always have a good experience.

I wanted to do something spectacular with my YouTube Bonza intro video, so I ordered a green screen. This was the first time I’ve ever used a green screen, and I’m so happy I did so.

Although I’m not expecting this video to get all that many views I’m going to make sure every view boosts the exposure of my blogs. That’s partly done by having screenshots of some of my blogs featured in the video and also by including links to them in the Introduction.

As I said in the video, I try to make them entertaining, and this one is no exception. You’ll notice in the video that some of my Aussie humour makes several appearances. Some are pretty obvious and one in particular not so obvious.

What do you think of my video? If you liked it, please give it a thumbs up. Oh yeah, if you’re a YouTuber, don’t forget to subscribe:drunk_tb: This post will explain why.

No Pain No Gain As Applied To Life

No pain no gain has been used by body builders for years. It’s an exercise motto coming into prominence in 1982 through Jane Fonda’s workout videos.  Body builders will tell you that you have to push yourself past that pain threshold if you want to get bigger and more defined muscles.

I personally believe that you can apply the no pain no gain principle to almost every facet of life.

No Pain No Gain As Applied To Blogging

no pain no gainMost bloggers who take on blogging as a money making venture don’t last all that long. I’ve lost count of bloggers who have fallen by the wayside since I started blogging way back in 2005. They reason for that is because most folk believe blogging for money is simple. All you have to do is get your blog live, place your affiliate links on your blog and sit back and wait for the money to roll in.

If only it was that easy. Truth be told it takes a whole lot of work just to make a little money, let alone a lot. You have to post regularly and those post have to be of really good quality. You have to continually update your blogs to keep up with the every changing parameters set out by Google and other search engines.

You have to find the right affiliates and then target the right audience in the hope that they’ll not only click on your affiliate link but actually go through with the purchase.

You have to go through the pain of late nights, time away from the family and the pain and frustration of seeing all these clicks on your affiliate links with very few sales coming in. Even marketing is a painful experience. It’s because the pain can be so excruciating that so many potentially successful bloggers fall by the wayside.

No Pain No Gain As Applied To Life

It really pains me when I see the attitude that the some of the younger generation has to their work ethics. It’s as if they believe that their employment is a right and not something that have to do well in in order to improve their position. They take sickies whenever they can because they, again, believe it’s owed to them.

I hear them complain about not getting more hours and when I give them advice it falls on death ears. I remember this one guy that took over 40 minutes to put away a cage of milk. When I told him that I could load up a cage, process it and put away the empties in 10 minutes his response was, “Hey, I don’t want to strain myself!” Honestly, if that is the work ethic he’s going to use throughout his life he’ll never get anywhere.

It may be painful starting at the bottom. It may even be painful having to take orders from some dickhead! Just keep the no pain no gain principle in mind. Sometimes you just have to push through the pain to get to the rewards on the other side.

No Pain No Gain & Losing Weight

Ever since getting my Fitbit Charge 2, which I reviewed here, I have continued to improve my fitness level,  not to mention to slowly lose weight. It’s my personal opinion that the reason for this is because once again I apply the no pain no gain principal. I see these people slowly strolling along happily thinking to themselves that they’re improving their fitness levels. Sure it’s better than sitting on your ass watching TV but unless you push yourself you’re not really getting much benefit at all.

Every time I go out I try to do a little better. It’s not easy but I love the exhilaration I feel in the knowledge that I’ve done a little bit better.

The question is are you willing to apply the no pain no gain principle to some facet of your life?
