    I saw another members journey thread and saw how easily he was gaining subscribers just by actively adding videos to his channel. So I decided, why not use this to my advantage, I'm already making a little with YouTube, why not upscale immediately. I'm always wasting time reading, procrastinating, and I never get anything done. With that being said I'll give you guys some information about my channel.

    Journey Started: 9/8/2014
    Niche: Education.
    Starting Subscribers: 698
    Starting Views: 56,496
    Starting Videos: 40

    I have a total of 40 videos and I'm averaging an 2~4 subscriber gain per day, with 200~300 views per day. I usually upload around one video every 1-2 months... and sometimes I'll upload 5-6 in a spurt... then disappear for awhile. I'm planning on uploading at-least two videos a day for awhile and figuring out exactly where this can take me. Hoping to get to at-least $300 a month.

    Here are the statistics for 08/2014

    As you can see my channel is growing and I'm not doing anything for it. I haven't done any SEO besides for the use of tags when uploading videos, if that's even considered SEO. I don't advertise my videos either, all of my traffic is from "Recommended" videos or direct-searching. ( Considering all of my videos are tutorials, etc... ) -- Considering the fact that I create all of my own content, copyright should never be a problem.

    Let's see where we go with this..

    Thank you, the only problem I'm running into is planning content throughout the next few weeks. It's so easy to run out.

    Good luck with your journey and don't let anything to stop you from achieving your goal.
    I'm planning to do some youtube experiment in a few weeks, to see how it will work.

    Goodluck with your experiments.
    I might end up going after multiple niches after awhile.

    Indeed.

    So far what I've done for today ( Instead of recording numerous videos.. ) I've sat down and come up with a plan. This plan consists of 100 videos that I am going to record over the next month and a half. I'm hoping to get my parents to purchase me a quality microphone so I'm not destroying peoples ears with my cheap headset. Of-course I should be able to pay them back in no-time. I recorded one of those videos and I'm getting ready to call it a morning. ( 8AM here, so I'll do more work tonight. ) -- I also have to catch up with my school work as I'm a week behind and need to take care of that. The first few days are really going to be different. I shouldn't have to set much more than an hour aside every day to create the videos. The good part about this Journey is it's going to have me learning a lot too. Considering I'm flooding the education niche with personally created content, I have to learn and understand what I'm teaching. This is a great project for me. I'm stoked. The moment I see $50 a month I'm going to have a field day.

    So, I didn't upload any additional videos today, but I have been getting ready to record some. I'll just have to double up tomorrow so that I don't feel like I'm slacking off. I've been working on my website however which i'm going to use YouTube to drive traffic to. All of my video content is going to be available in text form on my website. I've also attempted to incorporate ways to monetize this website using amazon or click-bank. The idea is to try to sell things like headsets and microphones as an affiliate, trying to find the best place to do this.

    What I've gotten done today: I've managed to completely revamp my website. I decided to wipe all of the content off of it and start from scratch with the domain. I hope Google will be forgiving, but the content I had was quality before. This is just going to be different content. It's got a much nicer feel to it and the content is over-all at a much higher level than it was to begin with. I wrote seven articles today, but I might write another 2-3 before I actually head to sleep. We'll see.

    With the death of my dog I kind-of took a break, but I'm back to work. I've completed over 10,000 words of quality unique content for my website as-well as pasted a link to my website in all of my videos. I created an Into using Adobe After-effects that reveals a logo with my websites name on it as-well, this is going on all of my new videos. All of my new videos are linking to a post on my website and all of my posts on my website are linking to and embedding said youtube video. This will slow down the amount in which I upload videos, however I think it will be worth it in the long run. I uploaded an hour long video today instead of a 6-part tutorial, we'll see how that video does, I enabled mid-roll advertisements every 7 minutes.

    Haven't done much for YouTube today, need to get a little more motivation.

    On a side note, I'm working on a tumblr bot.

    Haven't been keeping an update on the thread, as I had forgotten about it. I'm currently at 1.5k subs and 13xk views. I still haven't been advertising as I'm preparing for a software release(Which my channel is going to utilize and I'm going to try to monetize it.)
