I’m new I only have a few uploads so far, but what keeps me going is the fact that YouTube gives my mind a rest from the every day routine, it lets my creative side take over and for a while totally shifting my mind on topics, improve my videos, editing, music..and everything that’s it takes to upload a video, it’s ME time.... I like it.
Despite my lack of motivation, I still manage to find time to do YouTubing because of the support from the legit fans that really support my channel. Not those commenters who comment Sub to me and I sub back.
It's a commitment that I enjoy. I have made up my mind to continue regardless. I have worked hard for the subscribers and views that I have, I just dont want it to be in vain. I am trying to build a community and help people to help themselves and each other. I want to practice what I preach and not give up. Sometimes I feel disheartened and then I get a subscriber and do my little dancing jig!
My motivation for a long time to do work was to prove to my father that I could make something for myself. Now that has transitioned into wanting to build and life and family for myself. Its good to enjoy most of what I do but for the times that I don't the motivation is strong!
