Weird Sick, Withhold Food, Streaming Access Rant, Laughing At Starbucks’ Problems, and Stupid People

It actually starts off pretty gentle. The first bit is how I came down with a fever and huge body-ache at 11am and how I was done with it it under 24 hours—a new man. The rest gets rantier and rantier.

The effort to monetize YouTube is seemingly going well. Thank you for your participation to subscribe to the channel and watch the videos.

Again, the requirements for YouTube to pay you a portion of the ad revenue they generate on your videos is that you have to have at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours. I have 1,080 subscribers (subscribe please).

Here's where it gets a bit interesting, perhaps. I published my first YouTube in August of 2006, 16 years ago. Hang Gliding Ed Levin Park, 2,333 views to date.

I have 179 videos published in 16 years, but just sporadically until just a few weeks ago. In that total time, total watch hours were about 1,000. That's cumulative. Just in the last 2 weeks with about 13 videos published, I've increased my total watch hours about 25%. Sixteen years, and I bump it 25% in two weeks simply by creating videos almost every day. In fact, the watch-hour tally lags 3 days, so it's going to be more like 30%.

I've come to like making the videos and it's fortunate I have a foundational platform in this blog to promote them. This is my jumpstart and focus right now. I still have drafts of posts in the works.
