Youtube’s Policy

Damien Knight

Guys YouTube once more changed it’s YouTube policy for monetization. As someone who has been on YouTube since the birth of my daughter, I am highly upset. I remember YouTube when it was a brand new place and nothing was monetized. It was completely free. It seems that greed has taken over the platform. This morning Channels received this email.

I was approved for YouTube partnership in 2011, I remember how excited I was. I had vlogged daily back then, I wasn’t doing it to make money. I began vlogs and blogs back then to record my kids growing for my spouse so he could see them. His job keeps him from being home and I wanted that he not miss a moment on his newborn daughter. I never made much money. I think I have to date earned 2 dollars on YouTube.

For me I am not upset because I can’t make money on youtube. I am upset that the opportunity that Logan Paul and Pewdie Pie abused is now being stripped from innocent vloggers and creators. Why should they be punished for other people’s B.S.?

I know a few other YouTubers are now leaving the platform but for me I haven’t given up yet. I want to think that YouTube will realize what a bad decision this is and maybe change the system again. That said if they keep making it harder on new channels and creators I may just move The Shadow’s Lair’s videos.

In the meantime while we still are posting videos would you all go and subscribe? We highly appreciate it.

Social Saturdays: An Attempt to Connect

-Damien

Well we here at The Shadow’s Lair have been BUUUUUUSY. No YouTube videos in ages from us (I apologize)  and sporadic blog postings. I have so many over due restaurant reviews I need to post too.

Anyway today is Social Saturday. Every Saturday I try to answer questions asked by followers. I didn’t get any yet but the door is still open.

We are still moving into our new house. Process is slow moving. Kids still enjoying attending college classes with me. The only thing is transportation to and from school has been Uber and that gets expensive.

If you all like The Shade of Writing please go to our Patreon and support us. Even a dollar helps and will get you listed as a supporter on our Follow Fridays.

Thanks.

Life Update 2 From 3/26/2017

(Transferred from Niume)

Hello, it’s me Damien. I know you don’t come to my blog to hear about my personal struggles. You’re probably here to see my latest piece of art, read about philosophy or read a new literary piece. Well, don’t worry, I’ll keep the rough bits short, takes lemons to make lemonade as the cliché goes.
I have been living in a hotel for about a week. I will be living sort of transient until the house is repaired. I work at a McDonald’s. I love my coworkers and my customers but, I hate fast food. It’s a good job though so not dogging it. I applied to try doing tutoring on Course Hero. I think I’d enjoy it more.
The good news is, I have keys to the house. (As I stated I ended up not purchasing that house.) I will be getting to work on repairs. As soon as they are done I can return to posting daily stuff you followed me for to begin with. I have a whole folder of work I have written just waiting to be posted. So that’s the situation. I am tired, and overloaded but eager. Everyone’s support means so much.
Honest love my followers.
