Just a quick update. Been a while. I have evolved from here. Have I stopped writing because I don’t post as regularly anymore? Of course … NOT! Writing is one of the few things remaining from my childhood. It’s part of my makeup, my DNA, who I am. Most of the writing I’ve been doing for the last few months have been rap verses and poetry, all in my notes app. I plan on writing full fledge scripts hopefully soon. The platform I’m using is just the notes app in my phone. Majority of the content I’ve been writing is real horror core type stuff. Eminem Relapse type stuff. It’s just a reflection of what I’ve been going through lately. Plus I been watching a lot of Criminal Minds and SVU and picking up on stuff.
My main evolving though involves my YouTube channel. It’s really has taken off and doing numbers no post on here has ever came close to doing. And things are only going to get better once I find out what sort of content I want to post on a second channel and on Instagram. I was gone do poetry on IG but I need something more entertaining and that will help me grow at a crazy rate. And the only thing that would be is … humor.
I may post some of the crazy stuff I been writing on here and I may not. I still haven’t forgot about possibly starting a second blog without promoting it on here. I still would like to start fresh with new readers, people who I can actually build with, and not fools I personally get involved with. I may just do that on IG.
Anyway, my main focus is my YouTube channel. I may post “The Sky Is Falling” on here. I don’t know.
I attempted it last year on this blog’s anniversary but there will probably never be an official last post on here because I like holding on to stuff that effort and time has been invested in. If I don’t remember anything else from 2011 it’s gone be me starting this.
1 million channel views. 2,000 subscribers. Mission accomplished. Har+new, out.
This was inevitable. It happened a few hours ago. The count, as of writing, is 1,008,677. Just to clarify, this is channel views, not a single video. But speaking of, my highest viewed video is undergoing a second win. This is hella fun watching and why I love the internet at times. It peaked 2 months ago, but guess what, everyone didn’t see it and now a few more thousands are. The internet never closes; it’s always open. That video is responsible for 50% of the aforementioned views being at 480K. Oh, here’s another milestone I forgot to post about: 10K “likes.”
A subscriber milestone is steadily approaching too.
My YouTube channel is 97K away from 6 zeros. I’m projected to hit that by month’s end. My ambitious goal for my birthday and a present to myself is 10K subs. I’m like 8,700 subs behind. It’s ambitious but then again it’s not. I have preached time and time again ALL YOU NEED IS ONE. You only have to be right one time and you set for life. You can and you will fail hundreds and thousands of time but if, and that’s a big if, you don’t give up, you will make it. Notice I just said hundreds and thousands. That’s for those persistent enough to keep going because the average person won’t allow themselves to keep failing that many times without giving up and giving in. They fail 2 times and it’s a wrap. I know what you’re thinking: Why do I have to fail even a 100 times? Can’t I just study what I did wrong and correct them and make it? Yes you can! These are merely examples and I have Thomas Edison in mind. Furthermore, I’m not talking small. I’m popping big shit. This ain’t you want a 9 to 5, a spouse, white picket fence, 3 kids type shit. I’m talking bucking tradition and fighting norms. So you you fail more than usual because most of what we do involves pleasing others. Anyway, I just went off-topic. Let me get back on.
Because of real life things, my momentum on my YT channel has slowed down. It’s the 9th and I only have one video this month. I put out 12 last month. I did somewhere near 300K alone last month. If I were to do away with my ambition and project the likely outcome of where I will be by my birthday then I will have over 2K subs and over a million channel views.
Here is some exciting news that inspired me. One of my peers in the YouTube world just went from 2.5 thousand subs to 13K in less than a week due to his video going viral with 1 million views. That video is only 27 seconds long. Now you see why I feel like me getting to 10K by the end of May is realistic. He also gave me an idea about how I can exploit my poetry on YouTube. I’m going to grow this channel and probably start a second one with different content. One of the main reasons is because this main channel most likely won’t be eligible for monetization based off YT’s partner policy concerning “reused content.” That’s okay! There are other ways of making money on YouTube which I’ve been researching once I realized this.
I said yo!!! Although, I’ve been keeping up my stats, I just realized the current video doing so well was just posted last Saturday. I haven’t made a video since last Sunday; that video approaching 2K. However, the one from Saturday is currently at 101,941. That’s crazy! I’m just counting that one video. As a whole it’s more because of old videos still doing numbers. My subscriber count is over 1,300. Community posts are open to me and I’m about to have some fun with that.
My channel as a whole recently passed the 500K mark. My highest viewed video just passed the 300K mark. A video I put out a week ago passed the 50K mark. A video I put out not even 24 hours ago is already at 4K. I literally just dropped another video about 2 mins ago that I project to also do well. If you haven’t seen my last post (probably temporarily up), my YouTube channel has surpassed the numbers of followers I have on WordPress.
