OK, guys, this isn’t your typical post. I’ve recently posted a YouTube video about what I thought was a really fashionable man’s wallet. The problem is when my wife saw my new wallet she said it was a woman’s wallet, which is why I called the video, Is This A Man’s Wallet? Would A Man Dare Use This Wallet? So, even though I thought it was the best wallet ever, man’s wallet that is, my wife’s comment has brought it into question.
Best Wallet Ever Fiasco
Anyway, I’ve embedded a poll within the video. The survey states, Is This A Man’s Wallet with a simple yes or no selection of responses. My problem is that at the moment the result stands at 50/50. Please, folks, I love my wallet, and I really need you guys to help me out and take the poll and vote for it being a man’s wallet.
So please, head on over to YouTube by clicking thislinkand give me the boost I need.
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.
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 blatantly violating some of their rules anyway, copyright rules being just one of the infringements I’ve seen.
You Subscribe To Mine I’ll Return The Favour
So, we have to February the 20th 2018 to meet the deadline. Which brings me to the purpose of this post. I’m asking anyone who has the time, to subscribe to my YouTube channel!
There are many reasons to subscribe too. My videos are all in HD! They’re entertaining and cover many topics, from reviews to jokes. There are also a few ‘How To” videos covering varied topics from WordPress to fixing a leaking toilet.
I know there are a lot of others in the same boat and I feel we could all help each other out. So, I am more than happy to subscribe to anyone who has subscribed to my channel. Hopefully, if we all get involved, we can all build up our YouTube subscriptions.
Here’s my latest video on the subject. It’s all about the New YouTube Rules and my feeling about it.
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 of the lack of time that I usually publish a post without doing a proper check. This often results in typos, something Mitch will attest to. Having Grammarly is like having someone looking over my shoulder correcting me on any errors I may be making.
Sometimes missing out on a comma can out on a comma can make all the difference. As you can see from the image on the left Grammarly makes sure that you never make that mistake again.
I was so impressed by Grammarly I became an affiliate and those that know me can attest that’s not something that I do lightly.
On a side note, this is the first post that I didn’t have to struggle with ensuring that I got a great score with my Yoast plugin.
