It’s Happening

What’s happening? I can see it in your face that you’re wondering this very question. Well why don’t you let me tell you? I’m starting a YouTube channel! My goal is to get rich and just make videos within a year. Ha! I’m totally kidding. I’m really doing it because I’ve wanted to start a channel for years. Plural. But I’ve never been completely sure about the format. Did I want to talk about books? Did I want to talk about fitness? Did I want to be the next Roman Atwood pulling off pranks? I’m still not sure if I’ll switch it up in the future or stick to my current plan, but I know I want to start now.

I don’t want to give too much away just yet, but I will tell y’all that initially it’ll have a bookish theme to start. And maybe I can have my first video finished next week sometime? I don’t know. I’ve never recorded and edited a video before. But I’d like to get my first one out of the way.

Anyway, that’s all I have for y’all today. But there is one more thing, I’ve been thinking of channel names and I’ve come up with nothing. So why don’t y’all help me out? I came up with the name for this blog in about two minutes as I completed the initial setup almost two years ago, but it’s been a bit more difficult to come up with the name for a YouTube channel.

So, what do you think about this? Think I’ll crash and burn or change the BookTube community forever? Ha! Those are your only two choices. And seriously, think of a name. I’ll pay you after I make my first million. Oh! And most importantly, do you think you might want to watch my videos? Say yes, please.

On this day in 2014 I published Rereading Books.

  1. I’m super excited reading this. We have same thoughts right now running through our minds simultaneously. I made a channel few months back and added two videos. One, a short film and other a DIY Video. I admit that they both are amateur. Still I going to experiment more.

    I have a plan to make it an art and literature based channel where I will be posting my videos that will show the process of some collaboration of art and poems. How does it sound? I don’t know 😀 Yet I’m going to try it. And I’m really glad that I have found someone on the same track with me. Cheers to you John! 🙂

  2. I’m sorry I have no clue, what should I suggest you as a name! I hardly came up with one for me. So I don’t want to confuse you. You’ll find a good name for your channel for sure. And it’s a big YES from me. Waiting for the videos 🙂


  3. Well of course I’ll watch your channel. Although you know I’m not the biggest YouTuber in the world. I’m blanking on names right now, but I’ll continue to mull it over. Hmm…


  4. Of course I’ll check out your first vid – got any plans to the subject for the first one? Is it going to be weekly and will it link to the blog?
    I think I’d struggle to think of what to say – though I don’t think you’ll find that a problem 🙂 And, like many people, I hate the sound of my own voice when recorded – I was doing a reading at a fund raiser a while back and filmed my run-throughs to see how I can across. The results made me want to hide my head in a bag and sew up my lips – hideous!
