I started my online beauty persona on YouTube. My subscribers urged me to start Blogging and I did both for awhile…I stopped YouTube due to personal reasons 2 years ago… And now, in February, my partnership status will disappear.
YouTube, just like every other platform are changing their focus onto larger revenue outlets which means those of us who have smaller platforms are being kicked off the partnership program.
I remember the day I finally got accepted as a YouTube partner. This was ca. 2008, 2 years after I started my channel and started uploading. It took 3 rejections and a number of emails back and forth to be even considered for the program. Back then it was HUGE. Not anyone could join. I also remember when they started giving everyone partnership who wanted it. That too was HUGE. Now this change…
I don’t know if it really matters after 2 years of not uploading a video on YouTube that my channel will be stripped of it’s partnership status…I am not really sure if I will ever got back to YouTube thought I have been toying with the idea of it…I don’t count on earning a living on YouTube and alot has changed since the days I use to upload.
What’s the point of this post…? To be honest.. I dont know!
I guess I just wanted to get this documented somewhere. To get some closure on loosing a part of my channel I invested a lot of time and effort in.
Anyway. End of post.
