I took a long (initially permanent) vacay from YouTube but now I’m back!! I’m back for several reasons but I’m only going to explain a few.
1. Editing. Shockingly, I miss editing videos in iMovie. IGTV wasn’t cutting it for me because you couldn’t really edit videos and you could only upload a video in IG story format (like the video had to be the length of the screen basically (I forget what it’s called)).
2. Length. With IGTV, you’re limited to only ten minutes. Sometimes my topics go over ten minutes and I really don’t want to make two or more videos to fully explain my topic. I’d prefer making one video, no matter how long it is.
3. Monetization. It seems shallow but it’s true. I do want the monetization feature. Though I don’t have 1,000 subscribers nor do I have 4,000 watch time minutes, I will get there. I aim for YouTube to be a side hustle turned part time gig on side of blogging. I want to be able to work from home doing something that I love.
4. I just like it. I’ve been gone for so long and you know how people say, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder?” It’s one of those type of ordeals. I’ve been away from uploading for months and now I miss it.
So, with that being said, I’m back!!
