"Find a remote walking companion."

No more excuses about how if only you had someone to walk with you'd be out there.

"Somewhere in the world, your remote buddy is walking too."

Wait a sec — what's that song I'm hearing?

New ways to make money with Shorts

Screen Shot 2022-09-21 at 8.07.10 AM

Above, an email I got today from YouTube.

I've previously remarked that Shorts — YouTube's riposte to TikTok and Reels — are WAY more popular among my fans — I'm up to 1,043 subscribers BTW — than my livestreams and ordinary videos.

Now they're gonna help me cash in.

No worries: I currently average about $1/month in YouTube advertising income, a small fraction of the monthly $20 or so Google ads bring in.

Reading the fine print in YouTube's email, I see that they've once again set requirements I can't meet, like the bar of 1,000 subscribers to unlock mobile livestreaming I only reached last month after nearly ten years.

To enter the YouTube Partner Program starting in early 2023, I will need to accumulate 10 million Shorts views over a 90-day period.

Tell you what: at the rate I accumulate Shorts views — about 2,500/day — it'll take me approximately 10 years to make the grade.

Good thing I'm experienced with distant targets when it comes to YouTube, what?
