YouTube Question Why did you start a YouTube Channel?

I started YouTube because I love creating videos and music! Music is my passion and being a singer is also. I do reaction videos to music I've never heard before, If I really like the song I will put it in my playlist! I mainly react to rock, hard rock and metal music. That's what I sing too!

Like a lot of people, I started my channel during quarantine. I found it was actually a lot of fun plus my kids enjoyed it too, and then I discovered we can eventually make money. Also, I discovered that there are some channels on YouTube kids that set poor examples for kids so I want to set better examples.

I started youtube channel because I am homesick. I am living in New Zealand for 5 years and not able to visit Philippines due to covid. I feel depresssed and anxious. So, I started to make youtube channel and i’m glad that it helped!

Main reason I started was because the game that I enjoy playing has several different modes, and the mode that I enjoy most did not really have specific gameplay videos on YouTube, so I thought why not give it a go, its something that I would enjoy watching and I am hoping that I am not the only one that has an interest in it.

After 2020 I thought life is too short to not follow my passion! It’s going to be a long road but so happy to be part of the wonderful YouTube world!

Excellent question. I'm passionate about teaching English despite it not being my first language but I enjoy it a lot and I just wanted to use my channel to encourage non native speakers that love teaching English but are not confident in themselves that it is a beautiful language that is generally accepted by people. They should feel free to teach it, speak it and practice it as it a language generally accepted by people for easy flow of communication. :kissing_heart:

I started my channel because I'm involved in a bet, with an actual billionaire friend, that I can't become a billionaire (net worth) within 15 years. This bet started in mid 2018 then COVID happen. Well the bet is still on, because of how bad the economy is and the number of unemployed people, and those who might have to change career paths and skills, I've decided to document my whole journey and everything I'm doing on YouTube. I have 9 channels in total and all 9 are a part of documenting this journey. I don't want EVERYTHING to be in one channel because it would never grow really since YouTube analytics would things it has no focus at all.

I love performing live and you really need to see my act visually to appreciate everything that is put into it. As I'm based in Scotland and only occasionally get out for shows (especially at the moment), I wanted to grow my YouTube channel with music videos and live performances to get out to a larger audience.

I had to store my daughter's childhood videos somewhere safe and would last longer than my phone and laptop, since I've lost so many precious video files before.

I have always love gaming and started watching a lot of YT videos when COVID lockdowns were serious in Germany. I love all styles of gaming and started playing new and different ones. When I would get totally stuck I would go to YT and search through a lot of not so good tutorials and help videos. I said to myself, I could do this and if I could make decent help videos for gaming then why not. So it started off as a hobby and since I got back to the States it has grown into more of a passion of learning more and improving my content. It's like another version of a game for me.

PASSION!!! I started out of passion for teaching. My husband tried making me see the financial gain but it was all about passion for me. I write and shoot, he shoots with me and does the editing. One year now, I can edit and shoot well enough. My channel has been monetized, haven't been paid yet but it still isn't for the money but passion. That's what keeps me going. PASSION
