I have many facets to my work life, including my garden blog and podcast, A Gardener’s Notebook. Below is a playlist of the many garden videos I have posted to the blog in an easy-to-browse YouTube playlist. You can also find other content on careers and technology on my YouTube channel.
This is just one example of how I am using New Media to get the word out about my blogs and interests. It doesn’t take a significant amount of time, but it is important that you capture events and activities as you are doing them. Having to set up a special time and place to shoot your videos is often enough friction to prevent you from creating them at all. Capture what you can, when you can, and you will early create content for your sites.
I have been spending a lot of time woking on my YouTube Channel lately as I think that this is where a lot of attention is focused at the moment. My son got me interested in Minecraft and after watching how some of the most well-known Minecraft people use YouTube as their main social media presence (and income generator) I have been applying some of their lessons to my own channel. Using Google Adsense, you can monetize your YouTube views using both on-page and in-video advertising. It takes a large quorum of viewers to make more than a few dollars, but those few dollars could help you cover hosting and other costs for your blogs or podcasts.
