I’m about to relaunch my YouTube Channel, and I’ve made an important discovery.
It all started when I brought home a new tripod for my camera.
My daughter wanted to understand what it’s for. I explained to her that as part of Daddy’s work, I make videos where I tell stories. Of course, the second she heard that, she wanted in.
So we took a few vids for fun.
In one, she’s sitting on my lap, and as the camera starts rolling I ask “what do you think we can do for the people watching?” To which she answers: “we can sing a song!” From there it deteriorates into about two minutes of cuteness the likes of which would inspire more “awww’s” than a video reel of frolicking puppies.
As I watched, I realized, dammit – not only is she cuter than me but I have maybe one tenth of her personality and charisma.
And THAT’s my competition on YouTube.
What’s little ol’ me gonna say that’s captivating enough to steer views away from viral videos of uber lovable babies and kids (not to mention pets).
Not sure yet.
But I’ll figure it out.
Then I’ll crush the little bastards.
And hopefully the result for you will be both entertaining and enlightening, as I intend it to be.
For now, mosey on over to YouTube, if’n it’s to yer likin’, and subscribe to my channel:
Let me know how I’m doing in my noble mission to steal the spotlight from innocent youngsters.
