    Seeking Advice Should I Put my Show's Name in Each Video Title?

    YouTube News YouTube Removing It's Video Editor!

    I hope they still let you edit/save in place. It's handy to trim sections of a live stream for example. Nothing local on my end so thing for ME to edit here. It's nice to be able to clean up something like that. Having said that... I can't imagine ever missing it for any "Real" editing work. It...

    Service Royalty Free VFX Stock Footage Library

    This stuff rules! I wish I could think of a place to need them! =D Seriously though you should (if you haven't already) setup a way to take commission work for folks who want small tweaks but may not have after effects (or the like).

    Welcome SmokeyDan! Your stuff looks good! Best of luck with your Channel. Some very general thoughts for you. Try to settle into some kind of schedule. One that you can manage, but the viewers can expect. Find some common phrase, word, or inside joke to use often or always with your audience...

    Life Do people know you Create Content online?

    I'd be more afraid it would go like this: "YouTube huh... not sure that's ok for a customer facing Employee... and shouldn't you be spending your time doing work things?" All ridiculous of course. But that's the potentially unwarranted fear that keeps me quiet.
