In addition to the longer themed affirmation videos, I’ve started posting a short daily affirmation each day. The affirmation is the same one I post on my Twitter, but I go a little more in-depth in the video. Check them out and let me know what you think! 🙂

YouTube doesn’t like my videos because they’re “repetitive”, so I have to change how I make them. I think they’re mainly referring to the video part, where I usually find a pretty, calming video clip to loop throughout the affirmations. I thought it was a good visual to go along with the affirmations, but apparently YT thinks this is “unwanted spam”.
I thought about stringing together a bunch of clips related to the affirmation subject (for example, the dating affirmations would have clips of happy people dating and having fun), but I’m not sure YT would like that either.
So I’m opening the floor for ideas!
I could just record myself reading the affirmations, but that would be kind of boring, I think? Just me sitting there slowly talking?
Should I do something like record a first person view of me walking in the park, or in nature?
Maybe I could film myself painting or drawing?
I want to find something that viewers find helpful and pleasing, but that YouTube doesn’t smack me for!

On January 16th, YouTube sent out an email to lots of small channels, announcing some big changes to the monetization rules for the platform. Currently, you qualify for membership in the Youtube Partner Program as soon as you get 10,000 lifetime views on your channel. On February 20th, 2018, the requirements will be upped to 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of total watch time over the last year. Ouch!
Needless to say, a lot of small ‘tubers are upset about the changes! Not only will small channels stop earning money from ad revenue, we will lose some useful features like end cards and custom thumbnails.
It’s a sad situation, but so far the response has been pretty incredible! Small youtubers have banded together to support each other and do our best to get everyone to the new requirements. On Twitter, the tag #SmallYoutuberArmy is trending, and people are making threads where users can check out new channels and subscribe to other small creators. It’s great to see everyone coming together and helping each other!
Whether you have your own channel on Youtube or not, let’s all do our best to support small ‘tubers by watching their videos, subscribing to their channels, and giving thumbs up on videos you like. 🙂 Check out hashtags like #smallyoutuberarmy and #smallyoutubercommunity to find cool new channels. The new requirements are a challenge, but every challenge is really an opportunity to stand up and succeed!
