Are you familiar with the term “outrage culture”? With the recent controversies surrounding prominent YouTubers, I’ve been seeing this term a lot and it really got me thinking about the things people are getting mad about, and whether or not their outrage is truly justified. A couple weeks ago I talked about the outrage against…… Continue reading Outrage Culture & YouTube
Hey YouNubers! I’m sure you’re all so busy creating content, but did you catch the recent announcement about YouTube TV? If not you can read all about it here. But in case you don’t have time for that, I’ll give you a quick rundown: YouTube TV is exactly what it sounds like: a service to…… Continue reading What is YouTube TV?
Sup YouNubers? So the biggest YouTube personality has been blowing up the mainstream media lately, and of course I have to weigh in. For those who don’t know, PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg (funny how your YouTube persona can overtake your real name, eh), is YouTube’s most subscribed creator with more than 53 million subs at the…… Continue reading Is PewDiePie A Nazi?!
That’s right YouNubers, YouTube is getting rid of the 30-second unskippable ads, so does that mean anything for you as a creator? Probably not. I have my videos monetized and the ads that get placed on my videos are totally random. And if you are curious about doing your own advertising, I’d suggest paying for the…… Continue reading YouTube Stopping 30-Second Unskippable Ads
Hey YouNubers, this week I have some information to pass along, which could affect your subscriber counts.

And he actually caught…… Continue reading The YouTube Subscriber Scandal
Hey YouNubers, how’s it going? I’ve been thinking about my favourite YouTubers and the things they do well, and this question popped into my head: should you copy other YouTubers? For example, tons of great channels have a specific intro and outro, and there are a handful of channels I watch where the creators end…… Continue reading Should you copy other YouTubers?
Hey YouNubers, how ya doin’? This week I’ve got a quick hit-list of five tips to get people to subscribe to your channel. In the early goings (starting from zero), it’s fine to do the whole “sub-for-sub” thing, so long as you’re not spamming a random video’s comment section. But here are a few less-cringy…… Continue reading Top 5 Ways To Encourage People To Subscribe
Hey YouNubers, how’s the content-creatin’ life? These days, I find I’m making fewer mistakes, and I’ve had a number of people (not just my friends!) mention that they’ve seen my videos and enjoyed them. I’ve even had my first few organic engagements from people I don’t know, which is exciting even if it’s only a few.…… Continue reading Using Facebook To Make It On YouTube
That’s right fam, we made it! The Oxford English Dictionary has added ‘YouTuber’ to the ranks and it’s about time, really. YouTube has been around since 2005, and now in 2017 it’s an extremely popular source of entertainment for the millions of users and thousands of content creators. And though this bit of validation isn’t really…… Continue reading ‘YouTuber’ Is Officially A Word!
Welcome back YouNubers! I hope you had a wonderful and perhaps productive holiday season. I didn’t get to record as much as I wanted to (I only posted two videos over the course of the month), but I did try something new: Facebook Advertising. I paid for my first Facebook Ad, and I came away…… Continue reading New Year, Same Nube.
