500th VLOG and Getting Started with YouTube

Well it is taken a little while but as we finish up 2022 I have reached a bit of a personal milestone. Yesterday I published my 500th how-to vlog on my YouTube channel. When I started this it was simply to help my Dad with computers and gadgets. He liked his gadgets. What I hadn’t realised is that other people were watching.

What then happened is people were asking me to do work for them, this has led to a long standing working relationship with one client that has lasted 17 years, with hopefully more to come.

Then someone said “have you monetised it”. I was like what are they talking about. It was a trickle at first. It hasn’t made me rich but it now brings in something that boosts the coffers.

That all aside I do enjoy making them and it is nice to know people have found them useful.

So in this video, aside from wanting to thank you all for supporting me, I thought I would share some tips in case you have been considering starting your own channel.

If you do and want advice drop me a line and I will help if I can.

As I write this it is New Year’s Eve so Happy New Year and wish you all a fantastic 2023.
