Making a Start

I’ve talked for so long about starting a YouTube channel while NOT starting a YouTube channel, that I was beginning to bore myself. It’s not particularly difficult to do. As all as you need is a mobile phone or camera, and something to talk about. (As well as a Google account and a name for your channel). But I made the YouTube channel idea into such a big thing. I was trying to guarantee that it would succeed. I wanted my videos to be such good quality and the subjects so interesting that my videos would be liked by all those who watched them. But you can’t control those things. A YouTube channel will succeed or fail for a zillion reasons that can’t be predicted. That’s pretty exciting really. I should have realised sooner.

It’s not the success that’s important, but the journey. Everything is measured today by success. This is poo in my recently acquired opinion.

The thing is, to reach the desired heights of quality of content and interest, and hundreds of subscribers, you have to begin. It’s only in the doing that learning can occur. So I had no choice. I just had to do it! It takes time to establish any new project. A channel has to find its own voice, its own style and its own place – niche – in the big ocean of YouTubing. Starting is just the first stage. Persistence is the next. And believing in the vision of what you want your channel to be and where you want your channel to go.

So, I have found the courage to start, let’s see if I find the courage to persist. My advice to those who want to start a YouTube channel, is not to linger on issues of video quality and whether or not you think you have something interesting to say. Just sow the seed without hesitating and keep watering – that is, making videos.

I still want each video to be good quality, have a sense of humor and be informative. I have the equipment to produce good quality. With 5 children and 12 grandchildren I have had to develop a sense of humor 😉 Hopefully the subjects I choose to discuss on the channel will be interesting enough. We’ll see where it goes. It’ll be fun. Hopefully…

This is first video is then. If you have a moment, take a look even if it’s not your sort of thing. Thanks.

I am currently working on a PhD in Creative Writing at Northumbria University in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. I enjoy experimental writing. I do not see myself ever fitting in with, and following, the standard literary route. I am a creative writer which means I like to experiment with words, styles and platforms.
