Title of introduction: ShimonMeetsWorld is the name of my channel and it’s where I can show people that it is possible to travel on a budget and is based on me being a Christian guy from London travelling the world, letting people know that you can actually have fun being a Christian! I’d never travelled until July 2017 when I went to Barcelona (my absolute favourite place). Right from that very first trip, I caught severely caught travel bug and now I’ve travelled almost 20 times.
Your name/ Alias: Shimon
Where are you from? East London
How did you find TubeBuddy? Through one of The Content Bug’s youtube videos
What made you join the TubeBuddy forums? Being honest, at first I’d heard TubeBuddy was a useful tool to help ensure my videos were optimised effectively, so I thought I’d check it out...then I realised it was a whole community!
Knowing that made me sign up instantly, because I know (and have seen already) there will be plenty people who have more knowledge and experience than myself in numerous ways and I know I can give back whether it be my own skill or support/advice to others. I’m all about fellowship and support - so I feel privileged to be joining this community!
What would you like to accomplish with your channel: I would like my channel to be a place where people can come and share the same joy my friends and I feel when travelling, to be a place where people can learn about different countries/cities to travel to and be entertained by myself and the different people on my vlogs. I do try to include some humour in my editing, which I’ve received good feedback about so far, but I’ve only just really started and so would like to start becoming a lot more consistent and build a solid following of people who are really engaged with what I’m doing!
How frequently do you upload? I’ve previously been really inconsistent with my uploads due to a lack of time, but I’ve got so much content that I’d like to share - so I’m going to make sure I upload once a week from now on.
What are your hobbies? I’m a singer and have always been fond of acting too, so I sometimes include little snippets of the singing on my vlogs in a humorous way and ofcourse with the bit of acting experience I have, it helps me to be a little bit more natural talking to the camera!
Being a musician has made my editing experience even better, because I love playing around with different songs and sounds within my editing - having even simple gestures like shaking a salt cellar be in time with the beat! I’m still quite new to editing, but definitely feel that I’ve learnt a lot already.
Some of my other hobbies include gym, eating (BIG foodie!) and sports in general.
What is your biggest dream? My biggest dream is to be able to travel the world, vlogging and singing full time. I’d love to be someone with a mass following, making a positive influence on hundreds, thousands and you never know...millions of people!

What do you like about TubeBuddy thus far? :D
So far I’d say just how open and honest people are in terms of the feedback that I’ve seen given and also just how many different sections within the forums that there are.

Think I’m definitely going to be needing to get some opinions on effective thumbnails - because thus far mine have been a bit weak lol

Hey Shimon! I've seen your intro post once I got to this forum, saved the link to your channel and just found it today. That's really cool to see a fellow traveler on a budget! I am doing the same thing in Asia at the moment. I like your videos (you choose such a nice music by the way!) and it also gives me some inspiration to keep up with mine. Looking forward for the next episode.
