BBC News: YouTube channels need 10,000 views for adverts

YouTube channels need 10,000 views for adverts –

For a while now i have been pondering upon what to do with my YouTube channel … As much as i do enjoy making videos, they are time consuming to do..and increasingly more annoying trying to adhere to YouTube ever changing requirements and rules for content. 

There have been many a YT personality express there irritation at what’s going on with YT and how YT appears to be consistently making it harder and harder to remain with them at any worthwhile level when it comes to revenue, which a lot of the bigger YT names rely on as their income while making YT content full time.

For me as a  simple casual content creator who doesn’t even have 100 subscribers ( lol ) income isn’t an issue as I have full time employment already and this forthr most part a fun hobby and a means to create a living memory for myself and whomever may be interested. 

I keep my content trimmed of any of my photo shoots and other events as YT would likely close my little channel down for some petty rule about showing to much skin lol.  … not me… my models… lol believe me no one wants to see my skin.. it just ain’t pretty hahaha 🙂

But anyway…. I’ve been holding back on making more content and looking around at what might be available … thus far only Vimeo looks viable .. 

Still through .. how far should I take it..After all its just a hobby .. 

Should I include behind the scenes photo shoot stuff ? Should I do more road trips and adventure ? … maybe I should drop that media format all together and just just platforms like Instagram, tumblr and twitter. .. none of which gain me any decent exposure anyway.. I.guess maybe other than Instagram .. who knows lol.

It’s all food for thought. . And I’ve thought about it  and now I’m eating the food lol 

Happy weekend everyone 🙂

I am so very happy to see you here again…

It is always nice, when old friends can smile at each other one more time,

and share moments past, creating memories for the future.

RIP Mr Paul A. Strange


Paul Strange - RIP 17-12-2011

Sadly on Saturday 17th Dec 2011, a very good friend passed away unexpectedly.

Paul Strange (yes that is his real name) was one hell of a good bloke. I’d known him both professionally and personally as a very good friend for nay over 18 years, and had always enjoyed hanging out, having BBQ’s, and generally enjoying life.

It’s strange how things seen so weird now, you’re not even going to show up for dinner next week…. stink… it was your shout too.


Don’t take your friends (or family) for granted, life walks away far to fast and memories don’t replace the soul.

This is the latest and last picture I have of Paul, from 12th of Nov 2011, we went up to Matakana and then Scotts Point/landing, where we chilled out for the evening enjoying the view and whatnot.

As Mr Strange would say… “PENIS”!!

Now stop reading this and Get out and enjoy life.





As memories grow old.. 1

I understood today, as my memory grows old, that which I recalled past, aged also.

Time possess both my mind and my roots








I understood today, as my memory grows old, that which I recalled past, no longer remains the same.

Seeing for miles, obscured by objects of unnatural creation.

Time possess both my mind and my roots but worst of all, it changes what I once remembered as a boy.
