I enjoy creating art and nature videos for YouTube, even if these will not surpass the numbers needed to remain in the #YouTubePartnerProgram, which is trending on Twitter at the moment. By the way, I do not think there is anything wrong with wanting to earn money for our creative efforts, especially since the larger channels will continue to do so. YouTube will continue to earn money from anyone watching videos there, so there is nothing wrong with wanting a piece of the action, too. People keep saying it should not be about the money, but I think that is easier to say when you are in a place where you have nothing to lose from a certain situation. These people are meanwhile suggesting we join certain affiliate programs, or learn how to market more conducive to a specific target audience. I just will never be interested in doing that, and I want to be the authentic me when it comes to what I post, so I guess I will just have to do what feels right, and that is my course.
I enjoy and believe in the few art videos I create, even if these will no longer be monetized over on YouTube. I pour my heart into these, and I am sharing my creative journey as an artist and blogger. Someone today confirmed what I thought about how I should continue to upload on YouTube while I am also uploading on Daily Motion. Now I am dedicated to just being myself and having a bit of fun on YouTube again, but also enriching my Daily Motion channel. However, I think there is no shame in admitting I would like to make some money with my creative efforts while doing it our own way.
