Should I Start a YouTube Prepping Channel?

The main reason I’m hesitate to do this is because there are already 100’s of such channels on YouTube and I’m not sure if another one would matter or help… I would still be publishing this blog on the same scheduled…

    I would not watch your channel, reason OPSEC. I am working on minimizing my electronic trail. Same with Facebook. No account, do not view. FB security is a joke.

    Why, of course my first name is Enzo.

  2. This is your decision. Everyone here will support your choices, even if we disagree with it.

    Expansion of business can look really good, but sometimes the price is not worth it. Do you have enough time to devote to it? What is the increased hardware, security and legal requirements? Do you need to hire lawyers? Lawyers can really save your posterior in expanding business ventures, especially your business involves copyright laws, US and international. The time spent planning, creating, uploading videos, dealing with fees, could be significant. Server security, record keeping, backup needs, would also increase.

    Just a thought about decision-making that I learned: “Once you make the decision, the rest is easy.”

    Whatever you choose, we will support ya 🙂

    Hi … It really is your decision – but, as you say —- there are many-many YouTube postings and even you posting a video may-well be ‘just one more’.
    —– but, I for one enjoy the ‘reading’ of your postings and the corresponding replies.
    You-Tube videos are good in that a viewer can repeat and re-check the material. However, unless you have a scripted dialogue (so that the information you share is concise and ‘watch-able’ and not just a ‘ramble’) and/or a text of what is shared (so there can be a copy made or referred to with the video) – much of what you will share can easily be lost because of the possibility to delete and/or some other malfunction in the system or your explanation or information is not easily ‘see-able’ or a really quality ‘viewable’ from the perspective of your presentation style.
    I read every one of your postings and for-the-most-part copy (cut and paste the article and/or posting) so I can have a permanent ‘hard-copy’ to use as a back-reference in my note book and I correspondingly take notes from the material for references and/or further investigation)
    Hope this helps – just keep-on-keeping on with all the good stuff you keep sharing with all of us.

  4. I say go for it, if you have the time. I’ve learned a lot from YouTube videos and it can only give your blog more exposure.

    As an educator in my past life, I can tell you that because of all the different learning styles some may indeed benefit from a utube style presentation. Some are tactile (feel and touch), some are visual ( watch and learn) and some are auditory (listen and learn). You have a wealth of info and your blog is tremendous. Only you can make the final decision and from reading this blog I’m sure that it will be the right one. Good luck and I’ll be reading and (maybe) watching.

    I like U=Tube, but I like blogs like this more as I can and do make a folder with useful info in it on all kinds of subjects.

    MD if you decide to go ahead with this I would first watch a lot of U-Tube videos with a notepad handy and make notes of what bothered you about the video presentation and make sure you don’t do those things.

    If you don’t know if you will have enough to fill a good channel, maybe work with a few other bloggers that don’t have any U-Tube videos and start a shared channel so non of you will have to work too hard but still able to have something we will find useful. The more viewpoints you have the better the content.

  7. MD yep, would enjoy watching them if you do post them, good idea.

    I would love it if you would start a YouTube channel. I think it would be cool for members of the Wolf Pack to submit their videos as well as their articles. 🙂
