The Inner Tube: Answering Your Content Creation Questions! (general)

Kevin has been hit with demonetization on his YouTube channel. So we have a long discussion about what is happening, why YouTube is doing what it's doing, and where things go from here.

This week, I (Josh) have a really fun conversation with Inner Circle member Melanie Ahern. She runs my very favorite YouTube channel, and on this episode, we discuss her inconsistent release schedule and how she's still been able to build an audience around her really unique content.

We also discuss whether or not you should stick to one theme on your YouTube channel when you're starting out.

Kevin should be back next week. Thanks everyone for sticking with us for a few weeks while he has been away! And an extra special thank you to Gret Glyer, Jordan Taylor, and Melanie Ahern for helping me keep the show going in Kevin's absence.

It's been six years to the day since we uploaded the first episode of Messy Mondays onto YouTube. Today on the show, I (Josh) have a conversation with my brother Jordan about how far the show has come, and what we think about the future of Blimey Cow.

This episode contains a lot of stuff we haven't really talked about publicly outside of our Blimey Cow Patreon community, so we hope it all makes sense. Thanks so much for listening!

Creating content is hard work... staying motivated is even harder! This week on the show, we discuss some secrets we've discovered over the years that have helped us stay motivated and on track.

Kevin is out of the country this week, so Gret Glyer, founder of the company DonorSee, joins me (Josh) on the show today.

This week, we spend some time talking about our LIVE episode from last week (what worked and what didn't), then we discuss the current state of Josh's YouTube channel Blimey Cow, and finally we answer an email about the revenue we get from normal YouTube views vs. YouTube Red views.

PLEASE TAKE THE INNER TUBE LISTENER SURVEY 2017: https://goo.gl/forms/s1eJ1lEipykeqoAO2

Kevin and I really love recording The Inner Tube each week, and we want to make sure it's a show that YOU guys love, too! This episode is basically just a conversation all about what this show is all about.

We do The Inner Tube because we both love to encourage people to do what they love! We want to make a show each week that we wish had existed when we were growing up, to encourage us and give us confidence that we can do whatever we set our minds to! I hope that makes sense.

We are so grateful to everyone who takes an hour or so out of their week to listen to us goof off and have fun. We hope you enjoy it, and we hope you are encouraged by it! Thanks guys.

This week, we talk about why we think "The Media" overplayed their hand concerning all of this PewDiePie controversy.

ALSO, we have a very big announcement! Stay 'til the end!

Note: We announce a start date of March 6th for the new podcast, but it's actually March 7th. Sorry about that!
