Hi Millard,

I've thought (a little bit) about doing a YouTube channel...

When you look at those who succeed, they upload regularly, generally at least once a week (and usually more)...

I've read that the YouTube algorithm "rewards" those who put up videos regularly by promoting their videos more...

If you just put up videos every now and then, from what I've read, YouTube won't promote your videos as much...

I think there is opportunity there, but it takes consistency and time...

I think it also helps to be on the lookout for new social media... If you're early, and it explodes, your views will explode along with it! (That's how a lot of people got big through Tiktok...)

Now, if it enables you to "live the life" you want (like a lot of these travel YouTubers), then I'm sure it's well worth it!

I am "inching" towards doing video... But I may not show up on camera...

I kind of like this "drawing" method of doing a video... (This one is a very successful VSL - video sales letter...)


There's software you can use to make a drawing "gradually" appear... Sometimes they call it whiteboard animation software, or doodle video software...

Here's a video with an example of how it works using the software...


(I already "splurged" and got software that will do this, but I haven't used it yet!)

Best wishes,


I've been noticing something lately on Youtube.

Many of the top Youtube channels are simply people doing what interests them.

The channel "KaraandNate" just follows a couple as they travel around the world and visit 100 countries. (They finished their world trip and are now going around the US in a travel van.)

Joshua Weissman has a channel where he takes popular food dishes and makes them better.... even candy bars... step-by-step.

Two top bakers....BiggerBolderBaking and SallysBakingAddiction have successful channels.

The success of the Youtube channels often leads to a website where a book is sold.

There is even a channel that tracks interesting aircraft...

This list goes on and on.

Of course, there are a number of people who have written about how to have a successful Youtube channel... Yet, even the day-to-day things we do can be popular, if you have a hook. SomersinAlaska is good example of this.

This might be something to look into if something you do everyday would interest anyone.
