I am a small channel. I have been on YouTube for 1 year and 7 months. My "growth" has been slow to non existent, but literally only in the last month or 2 my channel is actually starting to grow, not crazy growth, but growth none the less.

My message to my fellow small YouTubers is DON'T GIVE UP! If you're enjoying it, keep going (and keep growing :) ) no matter how slowly you think you're moving forward, you're moving! enjoy the journey!

Many thanks for the encouragement and motivation, Darren. Everyone sometimes needs words of encouragement to ignite a flame. :)

I've recently got back into the content creation side of YouTube after a hiatus and am simply doing it as a hobby, as I'm a university student and have other responsibilities. I plan on really uploading in May when I have more free time and finals, working and exams aren't on my mind, haha.

Cheers!

Good luck with your studies! As long as you love creating content, you'll be uploading :)

Awww thank you and congratulations! Good for you. I kinda needed this right now. In two months it will be 3 years since I started this channel but it kinda stopped growing. However, last year I was not consistent and didn't have much time shooting skits with my cameragirl so I can just say that I didn't work hard enough, but some things were more important in this time. But I'm back in the game now :) Let's do this.

Definitely easy to get discouraged, the reason why we stand out as creators because we aspire to be our own person
