I recently began uploading some video game clips to YouTube on a new channel. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. So, I finally decided to do it… but just for fun. No hard work. Just fun.
And of course, my nephew likes to play Rocket League. So, I showed him some of the videos I had uploaded. They were clips of saves, goals, and other important plays in the game. Nothing fancy, some of them way too long, and there’s one where the recording app didn’t record any video but I attempted to salvage it anyway and make a joke out of it that my nephew didn’t really understand.
One day he tells my mom that I’m going to be rich because I’m a YouTuber.
He’s young and doesn’t understand how all that stuff works. So, in a way it was kinda cute.
But it was also kind of uplifting. Here’s this young kid who thinks my lame little videos are on par with the likes of actual gamer YouTubers. He thinks we’re the same.
So, I continue to upload some videos, just clips and highlights right now. And who knows… maybe one day I will be a rich YouTuber. I mean, none of the other YouTubers out there are rich because of YouTube… but maybe I can be the first?
P.S. – Should I become a famous YouTuber or a famous blogger? Hmm, tough one…
