As you know I'm all in with YouTube at the moment. The goal is to get enough material on YouTube and enough people watching that YouTube pays me enough to keep the collection alive. From the outside, being a full time YouTuber seems like a pipe (the kind with water in it, possibly legal in California) dream for teenagers. In fact when my own son listed "YouTuber" as one of his career options, I was first to suggest that he might need a backup plan. But I have met actual real Australians that make real money doing YouTube and they're not into pyramid schemes or multi-level marketing or expensive water filters. So it looks possible.
The key to YouTube success is content. Good content. Making videos that people want to watch. And part from videos on how to make YouTube videos, my second favourite type of video is documentaries. I love them. Mythbusters, Horrible Histories, Abandoned Engineering, Breaking Bad and The IT Crowd. Ok, so the second last one isn't a documentary, sorry. Anyway, this gives you an idea of what inspires me.
