YouTube Moves Goalpost

Don’t you hate it when people move the goalpost making it even harder to achieve your goals. Well, YouTube moves goalpost to make it even harder for creators to make a buck. Actually, let me rephrase that, making it impossible to make any money.

How YouTube Moves Goalpost

So, how did YouTube move goalpost? Here’s the email I just received today.

Peter Pelliccia,
Today we are announcing changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). While our goal remains to keep the YPP open to as many channels as possible, we recognize we need more safeguards in place to protect creator revenue across the YouTube ecosystem.
What’s Changing
Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, Peter Pelliccia, is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.
One of YouT
ube’s core values is to provide anyone the opportunity to earn money from a thriving channel. Creators who haven’t yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy, our Help Center, and all the resources on the Creator Site to grow their channels. Once your channel reaches the new threshold, it will be reviewed to make sure it adheres to our policies and guidelines, and if so, monetization will be re-enabled.
The YouTube Team

YouTube Moves GoalpostReally :wallbash_tb:   :hairout_tb:   :wallbash_tb:

I just checked my stats and last year 3,216 hours of watch time, so I’m only 784 hours short which is achievable with some help from you guys.

As for the subscribers, as you can see below I’m shy 251 subscribers. Without help from you guys I have no hope of reaching the 1,000 subscribers in the next 30 days.

Subscribe To My YouTube Channel

So, if you want to help a fellow blogger and YouTuber please subscribe to my channel and go to YouTube and watch some of my videos. I will be more than happy to reciprocate the gesture.

Please, share this post because the more people that see it the more chance I’ll have of not losing my chance at continuing my YouTube earnings, as small as that may be.

Blogging For Money Revisited

I reckon it’s time for a Blogging For Money Revisited post. When I first started this blog, it was more about blogging for money. It has heaps of posts all about blogging for money. I’ve even devoted a page to it called Make Money Online. There was also a time when I used to make a little money with Google Adsense, but then I went and got to be Too Sexy For Google.

That didn’t bother me because I was making way more money as a Lottery Affiliate with my two favourite lottery sites, Buy Online Lotto Tickets and Get Online Lottery. Unfortunately, I’m still trying to crack the Ez eSports Betting market.

One thing I have discovered is that there are other ways of making money online other than blogging. YouTube for example! I even started another category on one of my other blogs called YouTube Tips. Why on that blog and not on this one? I’m so glad you asked.  :drunk_tb: Read on McDuff!

Blogging For Money Revisited Why?

blogging for money revisited

Created by The Creator which I absolutely love.

I’ve decided that I’m going to give Adsense another go and because I can’t have Adsense on this blog I’m concentrating on my other blogs. Another reason for the blogging for money revisited tagline. This means I’m going to have to update them a lot more. This blog is still my most favourite blog, getting more visits than all the other ones combined. That being the case it makes perfect sense to use it to promote my other blogs.

Also, because my Friday Funnies posts are bringing the most significant chunk of traffic, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same thing for one of the other Adsense ready blogs. And so Heaps Of Jokes was born. Going to try and not piss off Google this time though. :tongue_laugh_ee:

Consolidating Web Hosting

In an effort to increase the profitability of my blogging online attempt I’m continuing to consolidate my web hosting. This month I will be moving another three sites over to my Inmotion hosting account.

As for Youtube, my biggest hurdle is trying to find the right subject matter for my videos. Of my recent videos the How To Cut Curves In Laminate Floorboards is doing quite well. I reckon my Ryobi Brushless Lawnmower Review will do quite well. I’m hoping that as time goes by more of my videos will be as popular as my motorbike stunts video which to date has generated nearly $900.

Although I’ve done a lot of posts that may help newbie bloggers, none of them is as comprehensive as the one by Paul Aroloye entitled How To Start A Successful Blog.

Train Joke Friday Funnies #296

I reckon it’s been quite some time since I had train joke. I’m sure there have been a couple of train jokes in the past but the train joke that comes to mind is about Thomas The tank Engine.

train jokeA man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very
tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying, ‘Ma’am, I’m sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I’m awfully cold.’

‘I have a better idea,’ she replied, ‘Just for tonight, let’s pretend that we’re married’.

‘Wow! That’s a great idea!’ he exclaimed.

‘Good,’ she replied, ‘Get your own f…ing blanket!’

After a moment of silence, he farted.

The End.

This other train joke is pretty good too. It takes place in the old days when a woman’s skirt/dress was a lot longer than what it is today.

In a train compartment, there are 3 men and a young blonde. The four passengers join in conversation, which very soon turns little on the erotic side.

Then, the young blonde proposes, “If each of you will give me $1.00, I will show you my legs.” The men, charmed by this young blonde, all pull a buck out of their wallet. And then the girl pulls up her dress a bit to show her legs.

Then she says, “If each of you gentlemen will give me $10.00, I’ll show you my thighs,”. Men being what they are, they all pull out a ten dollar bill. The girl pulls up her dress all the way to her legs in full.

As the erotic conversation continues, the men a little excited have all taken off their coats. Then the young blonde says, “Do you know, for a $100, I’ll show you where I was operated on for appendicitis.”

All three eagerly fumble into their wallets for the money. The blonde then turns to the window and points at a building they’re passing. “You see, just over there in the distance. That’s the very hospital where I had it done!”

And they say blondes are dumb.  :tongue_laugh_ee:

I’ve just started a new jokes category on one of my other blogs called Heaps Of Jokes. If you’re looking for a good laugh you should really head on over and have a look at it.

Funny F Word Friday Funnies #295

Who ever thought that the F word could be funny. I know I didn’t until I got an email all about the F word. Before I get to that though, I have to tell you, this isn’t the first time I’ve written about the F word. Nope, ages ago I even wrote an F word poem.

So, when is F#$% Acceptable?

There are only 11 times in history where the F word has been considered acceptable for use. They are as follows:

F Word In History

  1. “What the F#$% do you mean, we are sinking?” — Capt. EJ. Smith of RMS Titanic, 1912f word
  2. “What the F#$% was that?” — Mayor Of Hiroshima , 1945
  3. “Where did all those F#$%ing Indians come from?” — George Custer, 1877
  4. “Any @#F%ing idiot could understand that.” — Albert Einstein, 1938
  5. “It does so F#$%ing look like her!” — Picasso, 1926
  6. “How the F#$% did you work that out?” — Pythagoras, 126 BC
  7. “You want WHAT on the F#$%ing ceiling?” — Michelangelo, 1566
  8. “Where the F#$% are we?” — Amelia Earhart, 1937
  9. “Scattered F#$%ing showers, my ass!” — Noah, 4314 BC
  10. “Aw c’mon Monica. Who the F#$% is going to find out?” — Bill Clinton, 1998
    And the best one ever has to be……
  11. “There is no F#$%ing way Trump will ever become President” — Hilary Clinton 2016

As it turns out, my F poem wasn’t the only post that included the “F” word. There was this other post all about political correctness that I know you’re going to love. A word of warning though, that post actually contains the F word so you may want to take that into consideration.  :tongue_laugh_ee:

Truth be told. I think that the “F” word gets used way too much today. Heck. so many comedians must think that’s it’s mandatory to throw the F word into their jokes. You can’t blame them either the way folk laugh at their jokes.

It’s such a shame that todays comedians can’t be more like some of the old classic comedians like Abbott and Costello. Like the old classic, Who’s On First routine.

If you liked this weeks Friday Funnies post please share the humour with your friends.
