New Year’s Resolutions

Greetings readers and friends. Every year I usually post my Thankfuls during November and my New Year Resolutions on New Year’s Eve. As most of you know, this year I lost several family to non-Covid related illnesses. It was difficult to find things I was thankful for while I grieved so many losses in such a short time. It has been difficult to think of things I would resolve to do in the coming year as well.

While this is late, I wish to give my short list of Thankfuls now:

  1. I am grateful that I got to see Mum as often as I had before she passed. I am grateful that we did as much as we could to make her last years better.
  2. I am grateful for my family. For being able to have them close to me.
  3. I am grateful for all of you who have kept following me through the years.

Now for my New Year’s resolutions:

  1. To post a regular schedule of blog posts at least twice a week.
  2. To finish editing my novel by December 2021
  3. To post 1 vlog post a week with family this year.
  4. To organize and input grades during homeschooling time every day.
  5. To do at least one write-in every day.
  6. Survive the pandemic.

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.
