Another YouTube Channel?? – Science!

After a lot of thought over the last few days, I’ve come to a decision. I will be starting another YouTube channel. Here’s how this came about.

A while back, I was thinking I might start doing some science-related vlogs on my vlog channel (you should subscribe to it!). I then decided I’d do a science video every week. However, I felt like it wouldn’t fit with that channel, as it’s meant to be a daily (sometimes 2-3 days) vlog. Why not start a new channel?

And so I made my decision. Soon, there will be a new channel on YouTube dedicated to science! But it won’t be right away. I need some time to plan it, choose a name, and have room to shoot my videos in. They’ll be extremely low budget, but I plan on using a new video editor (it’s a free one, but highly recommended).  I need to learn that new editor before I start the new channel, and I need a whole list of video ideas. I need to develop a format for it, as well. There’s a lot to consider. And one of the things I need to check out is if I am able to monetize a third channel this year. When I tried monetizing the channel for my daughter and I, YouTube told me I can’t monetize three channels in one year. Not sure about that, but I’ll investigate.

The new channel will have one video per week to start. They’ll feature me in front of the camera, and I’d like to do these videos with diagrams on paper. I’ll need to script the videos, unlike the videos I currently do for books and vlogs. I will focus a lot on astronomy and biology, though I’ll also include geology, physics, and chemistry.

I have some questions for you, though. I’d love to have some input.

  1. Would you be interested in subscribing and watching this channel?
  2. Do you think I should aim the videos toward children or adults? Or maybe good for both?
  3. What topics would you like to see me make videos on?

One of the things I may start doing for that channel is a weekly Q&A where I take a question or two and provide the answers. However, this will come down the road. As for the main videos, I’ll be using a lot of public domain images and planning on doing picture in picture video from time to time. So, I need to practice editing videos. And if possible, a collaboration or two with other science channels. Lots to do!

So, who’s with me? Interested? Let me know what you think in the comments with your answers to the questions above.

Week in Review – July 24, 2016

Very interesting week. Probably the biggest news is a friend of mine is moving, and she asked me if I’d like to take some of her books. Of course, I said yes! I’ll do a post about that later this week. But the big surprise is that she and her husband are going to be neighbours! They’re moving only three blocks from where we live. Wow!

Reading

I’ve been bad at this. Still at 52% in Redemption Ark. Remind me to read every day this week.

Writing

Nuttin’.

Videos

7 videos on my main channel and 2 on my new vlog channel! Okay, so two of those videos were the same, so technically it’s 8 videos. Did I mention I started a new channel? I have a big video to edit and post tonight. Actually, I’m editing and posting two videos, one on each channel.

Patreon

Nothing yet.

Languages

I didn’t do anything. I really should have.

The Blog

The biggest thing that’s happening is next month. Authors Answer is having a special month. It’ll be an interesting four weeks!

Studying

None.

The Next Week’s Goals

I have some updating work to do on the blog, and I really, really should do some reviews! I’m going to be doing some work to learn how to make end cards for videos and do some upgrading on my video editing. I also want to get completely caught up in social media.

However, probably the biggest thing I’m doing this week is making sure my C drive has enough space (moving several GB of photos and videos to my D drive) so that I can upgrade my computer to Windows 10. Hopefully it goes smoothly. Must do it this week!

How was your week? Let me know in the comments below.

Booktube Isn’t Enough – New Channel!

I’ve been considering this for quite some time. Booktube is great. It’s my main thing on YouTube. However, there are times that I want to make videos about something different. So, I started a more general vlog channel. I started off with a channel introduction video.

And followed that with my first vlog.

If you’re interested, please watch and subscribe! I won’t be posting the videos on this blog, unless they’re book related. Which means they’d be on my main channel anyway.

New YouTube Channel: Childishness Only

I’ve decided I needed to separate my daughter’s videos from the rest of my videos.  So now, my main channel is about books and Japan.  My new channel is all about my daughter, education, language, and just plain fun.  So, if you’re interested in my daughter’s videos, you can subscribe to that channel. And of course, for book and Japan related videos, subscribe to my main channel.

I made an introductory video, and here it is.
