How many times a day do you browse, watch or enjoy videos on YouTube? Is it silly cats, gaming videos, vlogs or how-to videos? And have you ever pressed that SUBSCRIBE button? I would like to take a minute to explain to you, why right now, is an important time to do so 🤓

YouTube is changing the rules of the game! What this means is that, to make a few cents of a video, a certain goal has to be reached first. This is what they’re changing:
Before, the goal was: at least 10.000 views
Now, it will be: at least 1000 subscribers AND 4000 hours of viewing within the past 12 months
🤔😱This is a bit disheartening for a new channel with barely 100 subscriptions! But we keep our head up high! I make my video’s because I ramble about movies anyways, it’s my passion and I love to share it! However, if at some point my hobby could pay for itself or even for my bills 😬, wow that would be a dream!
I believe that if we all stand together, as youtubers and video-consumers, this change will lead to a better YouTube. With less fake, duplicate or bot-channels and more space for small creatives like myself 🤗
So here is my request for you: when you open that YouTube app today and watch videos, ask yourself who made them and if they deserve your much needed support by simply clicking the subscribe button!
Spread the word!
