MY FIRST VIRAL VIDEO

AT 13 YEARS OLD

JOURNAL OF A TEENAGE GAMING YOUTUBER

· KAYDEN,GAMING VIDEO,GAMING JOURNAL

When I first started on youtube, my videos were not doing well. Each video could only get anywhere between 0 to 5 views. This was not enough as my goal was to meet the requirements of monitization by the end of the year. I started to lose hope but continued to produce content. It was right around this time where I made a video showing (at the time) all the secret codes for an Undertale fangame called Bonetale. I decided to follow some advice, although I think it would not work. I didn't even edit the video!

It was a few days later when my sister was looking through my videos when she saw that my video had reached 15k views. I was skeptical at first but when i went to check it for myself. I was shocked beyond belief as what my sister said was confirmed.

Ever since that day, I have been trying to replicate the successes of that video but to no avail. However, I now know that its not impossible for me to make a viral video. Thankfully, my videos are now doing better on average. I have also expanded to Twitch streaming and will be present on both platforms. 

I AM NOT GVIING UP NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS! 

I know it will be slow process but I will get better day by day. My mum shared a story with me about how Mr Beast took 7 years to monetize but when he did he was making millions. Best of all, his videos were impacting people's lives. 

Some day, I will be an awesome content creator too. Hope lives on... If you are also a teenage trying to make it as a YouTuber or Kidsprenuer, do drop me a line to share how you are doing and challenges you faced or overcomed. If you are also a teenage gaming YouTuber, I would be keen to   play a game and video with you on Youtube too!
