    Spanish speaking is the plan for now.

    Yeah the "market" is satturated with english speaking people. You got to find your niche I suppose.

    True. Spanish is not a niche language.

    I didn't say that spanish is a niche language. I just said that you have to find your niche. I mean it in general. Could be any language really. But if there are like already a million people out there offering the same content than it is unrealistic to expect that your chanel will sky rocket if you don't offer something either in terms of entertainment or giving a new spin on it. But it all depends on your goal. As I always tell to the kidz who "dream" of becoming youtube/social media stars. Do what you love. And do it because you love it. Not because you want that big internet money. Because that's a recipe for disapointment. You can't force success is I am saying.

    Joel Haver is one of the most popular rising stars on YouTube but it took him almost a decade to get there before the algorithm kicked in.

    Maybe I shouldn't have deleted facebook for holding my posts back months at a time.

    You say that but then you have all those literal factory channels that just produce top 10s and channels about people eating that all look the exact same.

    Yeah but who's saying they make a lot of money? You think stuff like that WatchMojo crap? There are also websites and companies standing behind it. It's more about advertising here, I think. The overwhelming majority of those "Top 10 Anime/Movie/turd-in-a-toilet!" videos are just that. Videos. They don't nearly generate enough clicks to be profitable.

    *Edit interesting little trivia here :

    WatchMojo.com lost money the first six years of operations, broke even in 2012, and has generated a profit since 2013.[41] Due to the 2007–2009 recession, WatchMojo.com had de-emphasized an ad-supported model in favour of licensing fees paid by other media companies to access and use their media. Later that year Beet.TV featured WatchMojo.com alongside Magnify.net as examples of companies which successfully switched from ad-based revenue models to licensing fee based revenue models.

    Lets face it, for 99% of the people out there this social-media-youtube-video thing isn't a profitable way of making money or generating income.

    Just got told by a guy delivering my groceries to my house "Well at least I am working" because I didn't go to help him haul them from his bike (which has never been a thing with this service), like does this motherfucker think I paid for all of these things with no job? What an asshole.

    Some people think you have to be outside to be working.

    NFT Snake oil salesman:

    What if you could own that Minecraft Pickaxe and then bring it to Mario games?

    That would require every single developer creating extra assets continuosly to accomodate something they aren't profiting from. Which is not only impractical but also serves no purpouse.

    But what if you could pay for your favorite voice actor voice and use it for podcasts?

    Text to speech requires tons of AI training to work properly, thousands of hours of sample audio so if a voice actor would want to sell their voice that way it would need major infrastructure and investment for each one. Also, this doesn't need the block chain to operate in any way?

    UPDATE: The text to speech NFT oil salesmen are also stealing the work of 15.ai without permission, to the surprise of nobody.
