Very interesting, we really seem to have a very similar way of thinking. That said, I am still a happy holder of both Tex and RPL - and have added more. I have also looked at starting a youtube channel - more a travel vlog. For a few reasons, bad memory, meeting other travellers, freebee's and then a bit of extra cash are the main reasons. But, as you say, it's a fun hobby.

Must say, I have never seen youtube video's quite like yours - intriguing - have subscribed.

What are you editing on? Have been playing with shotcut myself, did try resolve but my puny 4gb of ram made it pretty unstable. Really need to get another 4gb in it.

Thanks! Really appreciate it!

All I use is Windows Movie Maker :) It is free and real easy to use. Very basic and extremely light on the features though. So if this takes off I will consider investing some money in better software and learning how to use it.

Added a photo of my rankings according to Socialblade.com as they were on my first day (4 days ago).

My channel grade has already been improved to a C- and I have also already moved up almost 1 million places in the subscriber rankings, 250K places in the video view rankings and 6 million places in the Social Blade Rankings. Sounds like grand leaps but I guess it is much easier move up the rankings when you still only have one way you could go.

Never spend money!

Shotcut and Resolve are both free - and for titles and photos - Inkscape and Gimp.

I'll keep an eye on your channel too. I also like to youtube, but so far I haven't really edited much. My wife and I have just barely started a travel blog. Like you Mr div it's mostly because we have so much fun on our travels, we want some sort of record of it.

That socialblade website is pretty cool, I'll see if I can get my ranking to improve. Here's what they say now:

Pretty awesome. Didn't know you did a bit of YouTubing yourself. What is your channel name? Interested in helping each other out with a bit of exposure? I'll add you to my channel's 'Featured Channels' tab if you will add me ;)

I started just putting up things I used to make, my electric bikes, LED lights for my motorcycle. My most popular video is of an LCD TV I put behind the mirror above my bath, I'd never have guessed!

Lately it's more of a bicycle channel, with my folding bike mods, and a few short travel vids, mostly unedited. It's here: https://www.youtube.com/user/patrickza

I'll add you to the featured tab, once I figure out how :)

Good for you! You are a helluva lot further along than me. But yeah, it took me awhile to figure out how to add a 'Featured Channels' list to channel's dashboard. Anyway, added you :)

Fawkes, take a look at steemit.com. Might be a good (and more profitable) outlet for your writing and to promote what you doing on youtube or whatever. I have been there for a week and find it a lot of fun. If you do, my user name is life-of-al, link up.

Interesting story Fawkes.
