So the latest video for my cooking channel on YouTube is not performing well with views, only 14 after 2 days and the loss of 2 subscribers, this may not seem like much but when you only have them in the 130’s it stings a little. One thing is for sure that will not make me give up just yet and niether should you.
No matter what is you want to do in life even if it seems completely ridiculous to the people around you, never back down. I for instance want to be a cooking show host, actor and cookbook author and I will get there even if it seems crazy to me some days . It takes a lot of work and things will not always run smoothly but preservence is key. Yes sometimes you will get frustrated but guess what? You make the rules as you go. Pick yourself up and move forward one slow step at a time.
I remember when I first started this cooking channel it was called “So you think you can’t cook” and the first video was for my Banana Bread Recipe. It was shot on my phone, compared to now it’s kinda funny looking back but I keep it there as a reminder of how far the channel has progressed, it keeps me motivated to do more.
here is the link so you can see:
The next video was a Baked Chicken Alfredo which was also shot on my phone and it’s still one of my most popular recipes to date.
Afterwards I moved on to a digital camera, the video quality was still bad but at least it could hook up to a tripod. These videos still get some residual views, nothing spectacular. Later I scraped together the money and used a credit card to purchase a actual video camera, a Sony Handycam and the quality of videos was much better. Such a happy day for me. Overtime with lots of practice the editing got easier and I had fun adding music and all that.
Here is a video from a couple weeks ago, this is my Making Cheeseburger Egg Rolls:
The name of the channel has also changed to “Bring Home the Flavour” and has a fancy new logo.
It’s been a long road so far but it’s not over yet and like I said before just because the latest video didn’t perform well doesn’t mean it’s over. Keep pushing forward.
Here goes everything,
