My Favorite YouTube Playlist: “Chillin on YouTube”

Something to be mellow to…

In these stressful times I do my best to keep the vibe chill wherever I’m working. I made this YouTube playlist that I think you may like.

Scott from California’s “Chillin on YouTube” playlist

This Video Has How Many Views?

It’s not just about the views…

The script this guy uses to update his video title is pretty neat.

Even cooler is his explanation of how the internet has progressed in various areas in relation to scripts like these. Tom Scott has obviously been around for a while and does a great job explaining it simply.

However, the real kicker is at the end…watch the whole thing.

The message will resonate with you whether you know code or not.

Giving Away Free How-To Photography Booklet to Families and Colleg Students

Seeing these kinds of Good Samaritan actions warms my heart…

Jared Polin is a photographer I follow on YouTube. He is giving away (for free) a photography booklet to (first) those whose kids’ schools closed for a few weeks and (second) college students whose college closed.

Please share with anyone you think might be interested. (he’s a really good photographer)

Song for the Weekend (Andrew Applepie)

You have probably heard his music and don’t even know it…

If you have watched any Vlogs on YouTube, then I would bet that you have heard music by Andrew Applepie.

He first got some notoriety in the United States when Casey Neistat started putting some of his music in his own vlogs. People liked his music so much, I think his reach just started growing. (I even emailed him and got permission to use his music in my own vlogs)

I am going to try and write a bit more about this creative musician but for now enjoy his music.

What does Cody Wanner mean with FIND YOUR YOUTUBE VOICE???

Everyone has their own style, voice, story, etc…have you thought about yours?

Before I deleted my previous YouTube channel, I had started making these videos and stumbled across Cody Wanner. He started a daily Vlog and was able to keep it up for a year…crazy right!!

I really enjoyed his channel and watching him find his way to his core message (one of “encouraging the doers” as he says) and the #nosmallcreator movement was quite unique. I made this video as a “thought piece” of sorts, and it had actually caught his attention and he shouted it out at one point, but the core message of what I am saying here is still the same.

If you start a vlog, blog, writing on Medium…you have to find your own voice and not try and imitate (too much) others that inspire you on any sort of medium. That can be tricky, but there is an audience for all sorts of folks. I realized that while Cody Wanner has a much faster paced, non-linear style…my “voice” or style of vlog was very different. Not bad, just different.

After you watch this…I’d encourage you to check out some of Cody Wanner’s early stuff…it’s lots of fun.
