So… I stopped posting about my niche site for a while there because I was a little tired and disappointed in myself for saying the same thing every month – “I’m still editing, and I’ll get my first few videos out by this month.” I ended up taking 6 months to do what I wanted to do in 1 month.
Perfectionism got the better of me and it was so intimidating and scary to release videos on YouTube that I kept procrastinating by tweaking the video and audio and basically everything under the sun. In the end I decided to just screw it and release my imperfect videos and the reception was surprisingly better than I thought.
My first video was posted on 7 June 2021, so 6 July 2021 ended my first month on YouTube.
YouTube Statistics (Month 1)
Total Videos: 13 (1 core video, 11 small videos elaborating on the core, and 1 useless video)
Total Views: 1,518
Total Subscribers: 30
Thoughts: I didn’t know what to expect from YouTube so I readied myself for a ghost town for about 6-12 months, like what you’d expect from Google. I’m surprised by the number of views and even subscribers that I got.
Goals: I’m trying to make things simple and post only 1 core video a month. It involves a freak amount of effort so I’m not going to try and aim for more than that.

These posts are super new so I’m not even going to bother checking traffic and impressions. They’re probably zero.
And that’s all for this month’s update!
