YouTube Partner Program (YPP) New Rule

This post is a little rant as well as a plea for help! As you've noticed from the heading, it's all about the new YouTube Partner Program (YPP) rules. I mentioned it in a previous post not all that long ago. If you're a YouTuber, you're probably received notification of their YouTube Partner Program (YPP) modification. These new rules will be preventing who knows how many hundreds of thousands of YouTubers from monetising their videos. This will take place mid-February! YouTube Partner Program (YPP) Requirements What is now required to monetise your videos? According to their site; "Starting today, we’re changing the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers.?" Too bad they don't use Grammarly because there's an error in that statement.  :cool: Why are they doing this? Well, it's because they're hoping to, "prevent bad actors from harming the inspiring and original creators around the world who make their living on YouTube." It seems they're not at all worried about all the good people who are currently on YouTube earning a little supplementary income. Nope, according to them, "Though these changes will affect a significant number of channels, 99% of those affected were making less than $100 per year in the last year, with 90% earning less than $2.50 in the last month." In other words, the little guys have to suffer, once again! Which seems entirely unfair to me because some of the channels I've noticed, who have the subscribers and the views, are…

Good Grammar Is Important

Good grammar is important. If anybody tells you anything else, you are being decieved. I have written many times on the importance of proper grammar. Even when commenting on other blogs your grammar has to be perfect!. In my post-Teaching People The Proper Way To Comment, I listed it as the second most important point, second only to my Comment Policy. Grammarly Knows Good Grammar Is Important I've only just recently come across Grammarly and was so impressed by what they have to offer I  joined. Yep, I bypassed their free offer. Why not, when their yearly subscription was under twelve bucks per month. They obviously know that Good Grammar is essential and want to make it readily available at an affordable price. Why Good Grammar Is Important Let's say your primary purpose for being online is to earn an income? Would you do business with someone whose grammar is so poor they don't seem to care what they're promoting? Like it or not your grammar is a reflection of your online presence. Bad grammar will leave a bad impression, one that could well impair your online presence. Not to mention your money earning potential. More often than not, poor grammar can create confusion with your audience. Whether it's because of spelling, punctuation or other grammatical errors! A critical point you're trying to get over may be missed because of poor grammar. Poor grammar could be costing you sales! Grammarly Saves Time For me, time is money and anything that saves me time is worth the expense. It's because…

Best Priced VPN?

A while back I wrote a post on what I believed to be the Best VPN for Mac users. At the time of writing that post MacSentry only had servers in 5 major cities. That post also offered new users a 50% discount! That discount probably made it the best priced VPN. Unfortunately that offer expired in February. Cyber Special Best Priced VPN Since then MacSentry now has servers in 18 cities! Not only that, as an affiliate I've just been notified of their special which surely puts them way up there as far as best priced VPN is concerned. Their latest VPN Promo is offering new customers a whole year of safe, secure, online surfing for only $24.99. You have to be quick though because this offer runs out this Saturday 2nd December. There are some very important reasons listed on their site as to why everyone should be using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) Secure Connection This is especially important for those of you who use public wi-fi as this is when you're most likely to be hacked! With a VPN you no longer have to worry about someone stealing your identity, hacking your passwords or misappropriating personal data that your uploading or downloading. Best thing is that once a member you can protect your Mac, iPhone or iPad. Increased privacy With a VPN no-one will ever know who you are. No more having to worry about big brother spying on you, trying to see what sitesyou're visiting. With a…
