    Life A feel-good story to make you smile

    Well, this has certainly been a strange week for me. Years ago, I had a dog that was my buddy. Her name was Shelby. She was a rescue from home that could not keep her. She lived to make me happy. One day I was called to jury duty and was gone all day. During the time I was gone she was...

    YouTube Tips Is a stupid face on your thumbnail necessary to get lots of clicks?

    I have noticed a trend on thumbnails from leading tubers. This is the use of a stupid face or look. One of my favorite OG Tubers is Derrel Eves. This guy has thirty Gold Button channels under his belt. I just grabbed a screenshot from his channel home page. Here is a screenshot from the...

    YouTube Opinion YouTube's 2022 Blog. Disappointing!

    Well, I just read the 2022 YT blog that was posted early in February. I got to say, it was disappointing. Pages and pages of meaningless pomp, and not one word that applies to the bread and butter channels that made YT and why the majority of viewers still use YT. I have nothing against...

    YouTube Question Trouble with comments on YT

    Is anyone else having trouble with YY comments? I have two problems. The YT studio app refused to clear out notifications. Even if I go in and clear them out manually, they just come back. Another problem is in a browser. When on YouTube com, not YT studio, and I click on the notification bell...

    YouTube Question To post, or to not to post? That is the question.

    Okay. I am not a huge fan of Shorts (as some of you know all too well). However, my granddaughter did something on camera that, I am sure would go viral as a short and I am tempted to post it on my channel even though it is completely out of my niche. I have already done some posting in...

    Movies/TV Creating a channel around vintage commercial content

    So, I have been converting some old 8mm takes to digital and ran across some vintage outdoor sports related content recorded from TV or cable (not sure which one). I searched around the web to see if this content was already online somewhere and to my surprise, it is non-existent online. The...

    Video Research Research Hack! Have you ever wondered where your videos have been shared?

    Have you ever wondered where your videos have been shared? Years ago, I got a bunch of traffic from a Other Source that analytics did not show. Someone was sharing my videos, but I could not see where they were sharing them. This sent me on a journey to find a way to track down exactly where...

    Food Just for laughs :joy::joy:

    I am old, okay. I remember when I was a kid and my family wanted to have a picnic in the park, it did not cost a week's paycheck. We ate store-brand bologna, imitation processed cheese food product slices, off-brand white bread, and generic brand mustard. The whole family could eat for under...

    Thumbnail Feedback I thought this thumbnail would kill it. Was I wrong?

    In my last video, I did a lot of research trying to come up with a thumb that would generate a high CTR. My latest video was about a vintage air rifle, so I did some searching on youtube for videos about air rifles. I then used the video with the most views as a format to create the thumb for...

    TubeBuddy Suggestion Comments management tool

    Comments are a huge part of being a YouTuber, and yet, YouTube has almost no bulk management system to handle comments. You have to deal with each one individually. One thing that has always bugged me is that there is no way to mark all comments as READ, or in this case, Responded to. Some...
