    I have been on YouTube making videos for 2 years...! Now, granted I did start with really bad videos but, now I put up really good videos for people to watch but, it's like a gamble because, some might explode to like 150+ views and others might barely reach 10... It's really frustrating but, I don't really give a f**k because, I enjoy doing it (Although making a commentary voice over can be a real b***h). You guys can checkout my channel to see what I mean and whether my videos are of good quality or am I just telling my self this...

    Thanks for the Advice. I agree good content is needed and not doing lets play videos. Also i think shorter videos will do better since alot of your subs wanna get something out of your video fast whether its a laugh or info or just entertainment. Then they wanna move on to the next video or get on with there day. I know for me if i see a 10 min video i watch like 2 min of it then i get bored. People like You Tube because they don't have to sit down for one hour to watch an episode of 1 thing when you can see multiple subjects in the same time frame and get just as much satisfaction out of what you just saw.

    I'm basically at the last point. I'm just changing a few details about my videos editing and general feel to keep people interested. I try to make a unique intro for every video to keep everyone interested but, the problem isn't that I'm bad but, nobody knows who I am. Everyone who sees my channel now Subscribes or at least most. but, I barely get views on my latest videos and that pisses me off. If you think my videos are bad. Feel free to check my channel and my latest video and let me know whether I'm uploading a good or bad videos...

    Well, some yes but, others no. I wasn't that lucky. Even when I realized that my videos were... well... s**t.
    I did fix my quality of editing and general content but, getting people to watch is hard. Especially if you're still a nobody. No matter if you got the best content. Getting them seen is the hardest. Because, there are so many people that does worser videos than yours that are getting 100s and 1000s of Subscribers. All I can say is thank god where I'm at and thank every mother f****r that stood by me...

    Another great guide even if it is from 2013, still so relevant!
    I don't have a gaming channel, I have a blogging channel but the content in this guide is still really useful!

    You know what guys? I think that... I'm not that lucky with YouTube. I see all those other people starting to upload videos on YouTube as recent as past 6 months and and getting as many views and subs as I earned in the last 2 years. 2 f*****g years!! Every time I go to my page and check my views. I see them growing by about 15 views daily. That makes me a little happy but, sometimes it goes quiet for a week. Adding to the fact that nobody subs because, obviously I'm a channel with low subs and not worth trusting because, I might just be re-uploading somebody's else's content or even worse that my videos aren't good enough.

    It hurts! It really f*****g hurts!! I just sit here in front of my computer thinking what could be the problem. I'm following the steps and more than that. I have my full dedication to producing my videos! I like doing it! But, sometimes man... I just sit there and... I don't know... f**k...! Just have that shred of doubt in my self. That I'm not good enough. That I should just stop. I don't f*****g know...

    It's happening to me right now as I'm typing this and probably no one will see this. I know for a fact that all that... "neglect-ion" (so, to speak) has been just motivation. It has been a drive to work as hard as I can to put out good videos for you guys. I always say that Subscribing is a really good motivation but, I'd like it better if someone commented. Just letting me know that my video sucks or boring or good or just awesome or f**k it at least say something to know that you do have something to say and that you do want something out of it instead of...sigh... I just don't f*****g know... you check my channel out. Do you think I deserve what I got right now because, I'm extremely proud of what I have but, feel like... I'm not good enough... Or just not worth it... either way... sigh....
