So will be back tomorrow night with another more exciting post

Day 62 – what I’ve learned so far about blogging and YouTube

Had a post idea a year ago about, not about the comments all about the views, started writing it and for some reason never finished it.

Then the other day I was flicking through my 365-day blog post ideas book and came across a topic idea, along the lines of what have you learned so far about blogging.

So thought why not merge the two together and share with you all what I’ve learnt so far about blogging and YouTube.

I may as well start off with YouTube, when I first started, I spent probably the first year trying to figure out ways to grow my subscribers. As I only had 2 and thought that if I had more subscribers more people would notice my videos.

Then I spoke to someone I knew one day and we got talking about YouTube and he said he made YouTube video’s and said he’d seen on Facebook that I was making videos. Then asked me how many views I’d got on my channel and, I was like views, I’m not sure, but I have like two subscribers and then he was like you do realise it’s all about the views and not the subscribers.

Which up until that point I’d never realised that. So if you have a YouTube channel or are thinking of starting one. Don’t be upset if you don’t get that many subscribers as at the end of the day, it’s all about the views you get on your video.

Still on the topic of YouTube, If you’re thinking of starting a channel and worried that it will be too hard, or you won’t be very good don’t be. As when I started, I didn’t know a thing about how to film or even how to edit a video, but just started and taught myself along the way. So Just go for it.

Blogging, so when I first started blogging, I wasn’t fussed that I only got 0-1 comments on posts. But over the past 6 months it started bugging me. So I spent week in week out trying to figure out why I wasn’t getting comments on my post and why someone with pictures and content no better than mine was getting like 30 comments on every post.

Still don’t know why, but a month or so ago I decided to give up on wondering why. As I remembered why I started blogging in the first place, and that was so I could keep an online diary and if people read it and commented then that was just a bonus to the whole process.

So if you’re blogging or thinking of starting a blog don’t get disheartened if you don’t get any comments. Just remember why you started blogging in the first.

Have loads more stuff, that I’ve learnt but don’t want to make this post super long and boring as I don’t have any pics to break it up. So will do a part two either next week or early next month, depending on how much time I have.

Also, sorry if any of you reading this found this post boring. I just feel like writing all these things down frees up space in my brain/mind and also helps me to see just how far me and my blog have grown.

day 61 – blog design site

If you read my goal post on sunday night, your noticed that I talk about finishing/starting my blog design site.

If you didn’t you can click here to read  it: goals

So thought today I would share a link to that site obviously it’s still a big work in progresses, but thought if I’d share it with you all then it might make me finish it a big quicker.

So here we are 2192designs

Not sure how long it will take as I’m so picky when it come to blog designing, that’s why I had my blog design by someone  in the end.  But once my blog design site is done I will be re branding this site, which will be probably more around January next year.

Still not sure if I like the layout or not, let me know in the comments down below what you think.
