April started out well, but I had a little bit of a motivational problem half-way into the month. Luckily I had plenty of video content queued up, so I did not break my “new year’s resolution” of publishing a video a week. The month ended with a slight plus on access views, another slight increase in YouTube subs to 81, and a decent – for my level – revenue of 6.8 Euro.
The “motivation crisis” was triggered, oddly enough, by YouTube’s introduction of “subscriber vs non-subscriber” statistics. Suddenly, I am able to tell that my subscribers hardly watch any of my content. From discussions on Reddit, it seems that I am not doing worse than other small channels, but until that point I had worked on the assumption that subscribers subscribe because they like your content.
The harsh reality, though, is that very few people actually care.
The good news is that, as I write this, I am over the hump. I will want to make some adjustments, but the desire to go on with content creation is back.
