Many of you have noticed by now that I am making changes in the way I am making videos.
I always made daily videos of our lives on the homestead. These videos showed what we do each day and you never knew what we would do next. Each video contained a variety of topics as we worked through our day.
But recently I have been making more topic based videos. Each video covers a single subject from start to finish. Then I am making a single weekly update about life here on the off grid homestead.
It seems that the audience is leaning more toward the shorter, topic based videos rather than a daily vlog of our lives on the homestead. The shorter topic based videos seem to perform better these days.
I am also uploading a thumbnail along with each video. This is something new for me as well. The thumbnail helps a video rank better and shows the viewer what the video is about.
My titles have changes as well. The title now contains certain keywords I was told are necessary in order to retain viewers and gain them as subscribers.
I would like your thoughts on these changes.
I am now working on Patreon full time again. There were some issues along the way but I have been uploading my work from all sources onto Patreon each day for a couple weeks now. I will continue to do so each day moving forward. You can follow my Patreon account here: https://www.patreon.com/TheDoItYourselfWorld
I am considering working on a daily blog from now on which will contain updates of our daily lives on the homestead. I will update the blog a few times a week and share more details than I can on the videos. I may upload some video clips to go along with the blog posts.
My articles always had more details than my videos anyway because I could sit and think about what I wanted to say whereas on video I did everything on the fly.
I used to have a newsletter each month but that ended about two years ago when my websites and computer were hacked and destroyed at the same time. I lost most of my work. For the past two years I have been restoring my work from backups. I have to restore one article at a time which takes a long time to do. I have been considering bringing back the monthly newsletter though.
Please let me know your thoughts on these changes.
Thanks for watching. Please Subscribe & follow my daily videos.
