YouTube Question Why did you start a YouTube Channel?

After being on Food Stamps since my husband died I decided to start a channel not just about my beautiful Ragamuffin Buddy (Cleo was her name before but she prefers Buddy), but also about a video game I'm developing based on her.

I will also talk and post walkthroughs about the video games I'm playing.

I'm like a few of the other outdoor channels that have responded in this thread in that my family and friends always found the things I did very interesting, so I made a few videos. Then, after watching other similar channels, I decided to see if I could fund my adventures by making my uploads a bit more professional. I've only made a few of the nicer ones but I enjoy the process.

I'm under NO illusion that I'll make a bunch of money from my channel, but as I mentioned, if it can begin to bring in enough money just to pay for the things I like to video, I'll be very pleased.

1) To be financially free - no more 9 to 5 rat race for me!
2) To make money while doing what I love - eating!
3) To support my family
4) To hopefully bring people to Christ through my channel. Not that I preach, but I drop hints that I am Christian. Some people will pick up on that and I want to use my channel to open doors for people to go seek Christ through my content.

Well, there are many who make a Youtube Channel for making some money
,but this is usually not the main reason for me. I started making a Youtube
Channel is to have some fun. Most Youtuber usually started their channel
to have fun, not to make money.

Well I'll kick this of by giving my reasons

I know I can teach and I love it, so I wanted to see if I could switch from classroom to YT - and what a learning curve it has been! I also wanted a project with my husband that we could work on together. I do the teaching, writing etc and he is on the editing side with us both working on marketing. So far it is working well and bringing us closer together.
The reason I started YouTube was to share motivational/inspirational quotes from motivational/inspitational figure that I admire. From artists, actors, motivational speakers, personal developement coaches, ect... There is always an audience for every type of content.

Although I am not very skilled at creating art, my mind was always crowded with creative thoughts. I have a lot of Youtube friendly hobbies such as cooking, fishing, sailing, and camping but last year during the lock-down, I had the time to finally get my motorcycle license and my very first motorcycle. I decided to document my journey as a new rider and see where it takes me. At first, I was not sure about youtubing because I didn't feel like I had the skill to do it but life is always about taking chances, so here I am. Finding a positive community like this always helps because it lightens your mood when you get to share the struggles with people who understand them and also helping out those in need of advice or some positive reinforcements. After doing this for 4 months, I am starting forget why I started but I am constantly reminded why I am continuing it. It is for the viewers that gave me their trust by subscribing and keep coming back to see the content I created for them. It is such a joyful feeling.

Cheers all.

I've been making videos for awhile now but sporadically. I started uploading more frequent because of friends always mentioning how much they would like to visit my city. So, I started doing virtual tour/walk videos of my city, Budapest and with some cinematic videos as well. Trying to show people how I see the city through my camera.
 
I started out of necessity last year, posting videos of lessons and materials for some textbooks I wrote. In the past month or so I’ve tried to branch out and make a few videos about living in Japan...still learning and have a long way to go, but I really enjoy editing so it seems like a productive way to waste my time!
