CREATING GOOD CONTENT IS HARD WORK
Youtube is a place for expressing creativity, it’s a place for ideas, expression and for this to be done effectively it requires a bit of hard work. I’ve never been one of those types of people to just set up the camera and film. When I create a Youtube video I try to plan what I’m going to say, what I’m going to include, any extra clips I want to add in etc…. However it makes me so happy to create content and to see a finished video uploaded and on my channel, so it definitley pays off.
IT CAN BE TIME CONSUMING
During the last year, it’s safe to say I haven’t been consistent with my Youtube content. I’ve been busy with college work, I’ve been busy with my job… Over this time I have definitely gained a new respect for people who upload every day / week. It takes a long time to film, edit and upload a video – longer than what I imagined it to be in the first place.
GETTING VIEWS AND SUBSCRIBERS ISN’T EASY
Not that it is the most important aspect… It isn’t by far. However, when you put something out into the world, something that you’ve spent quite a bit of time creating – you do want it to be seen. When I created my channel I never imagined it would be soooo hard to build up subscribers. It is hard work, but rewarding!
YOU CAN MEET SOME OF THE NICEST PEOPLE
This is probably my favourite thing I have learnt over the last year. Youtube allows you to connect with so many amazing people, I’ve met and spoke to lots of subscribers who I’ve grown to know and cherish as a great part of my life.
These are just a few of the things I’ve learnt over the last year! It’s been an amazing experience and I have enjoyed every second of it, creating content and sharing it with you all…. Here’s to many more years!
