YouTube - What They Don't Tell You
U is for Undertaking

"A schedule defends from chaos and whim." – Annie Dillard
My AtoZ theme this year is my YouTube journey with my new fiction channel, and all that I have learned - plus some free fiction - scroll down to the embedded vid for that.

The YouTube algorithm likes channels that have a regular schedule and don't have big gaps between videos. This is very important for new channels and smaller channels that don't have the help of having massive audiences to please the algorithm in other ways. Hence, once we begin to build our channels, we should be ready to keep it going with consistency.

This is a big undertaking, so timing is important. If other big things are coming up and might take us away from our channel, we should wait.

In the smaller scheme of things, it also helps to have our own schedule. It makes it much easier not to miss a release if we know what needs to be done and when. We're back to my lists again. I have days and times planned out when I know I have to do things to get my vids ready and up. I give myself a little wiggle room, but try very hard to keep to my schedule in its purest form.

For example, here a few of my key milestones:
  • Monday is shorts recording day. I set up my ring light, my phone, my tablet and off I go.
  • Wednesday is book formatting and uploading day, because I have a book to go with every long ep on each Friday.
  • Thursday is long vid editing day, because when I'm using After Effects I can do nothing else on my PC or the whole thing stops. Animation if memory, GPU and CPU hungry!

  4. This looks very difficult, Auntie Tasha. It's difficult enough to blog daily for one month. We will go back to once a week after April. I have no idea how you can do all this work. Do you have a huge staff?
