I have a YouTube channel and have put up a few videos. I want to be much more consistent, but it takes more energy than I can consistently muster.

I just started a Youtube channel this week. It's focused on my writing and world building rather than standard Permies topics, but if people are interested, it can be found here. I only have the introduction video so far, but am hoping to add much more interesting things as time goes on.

I use youtube to present evidence that can be viewed by almost anyone around the world: My bus trip which diverted off course without any explanation like that of MH370, my local garbage collector which left out my house but collected from everyone else on the street, my instructional video on my biochar making apparatus and daily compost tea harvesting and my problems with Odysee{am I geo-blocked?}.

I did not vote because I fit in none of those categories.

We are a female couple homesteading off the grid in South Africa. We’ve had quite a journey trying to find our own piece of land and we’re still not there yet, but we’re co-homesteading on a gorgeous place in the mountains right now. We buy as little as possible, and make as much as we can out of recycled and thrown out materials. We do all things permaculture based and we’re doing our PDC in September with Geoff Lawton!!! We’re trying to get monetized on YouTube so please do subscribe! 🙏🏼

I just started a you tube channel so I can share videos I've taken (for the interested).
My husband calls them "Nancy cam", so don't expect much!

Hi Michaela,
Welcome to Permies!
Why don't you make a signature line with your channel link and post some interesting items in a few different threads? That'll get you more interest and views perhaps.
See my signature link for some 'how to's' of Permies. As long as you follow the be nice rule and don't just spam you're welcome to share your learning here.

I seem to have two:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbY8L_kc-u8LB1qwsXaiWcw/videos
https://www.youtube.com/user/lyetc6/videos

Do not subscribe. I am not chasing those numbers.

If someone can identify that "Taja Hoe", I will be grateful. If SHTF, that is one piece of equipment I will be packing. I find it only works if you are kneeling down. You can still continue farming among the bushes while bullets are flying around and what better weapon against a hungry charging tiger{You only get one swing and no spare lives}?

We started a youtube channel last year, in part because we spent a lot of time answering the same questions about our farm.  So we thought we'd make a few videos and point people to those.  It takes a lot of time to make and edit decent videos, so we don't do that many.  We are full time farmers, not youtubers, but it has been positively received by many and we'll probably keep doing it.  We've been farming for 20 years but are new to permies, and have been enjoying it!

I have toyed with youtube in the past. I sometimes use it for video hosting.

I think it could be useful for building an audience, even if you're not big enough to make a career out of it.

Having an audience is valuable ey?

I don't really have a channel worth linking to right now.

I agree with a few others... it's a lot of work. So I think unless you really enjoy it, you need to make a solid plan for it to connect to your overall desired result. Otherwise, just enjoy video editing and sharing for the sake of it. Your mileage may vary.

I voted for joy and money but I just started a week or so ago.  Here is my first video, and montage of photos from when I began building my house myself.  I followed that with a real, walkthrough, video and I am working on the 3rd video now.  My videos will have a large DIY variety from construction to raising chickens and ducks and turkeys and a goose and a horse, along various projects and buildings for a small homestead, and then hopefully by summer repairing and restoring all my old cars and trucks.  One benefit I have is I can design and make my own T-shirts and decals so if a time comes where there is interest i can sell them for less than most others and make more of a profit even with the lower price.

I make videos to document Friends of Road 4109's volunteer road maintenance. There is a road to a popular hiking trailhead that hadn't seen any maintenance in over a decade. So, in 2018 I started a group and we began maintaining it. We are now official volunteers with the Forest Service. In 2020 we raised some money through crowdfunding. We bought some gravel with that, and then in 2021 we rented an excavator. So I use my channel to help donors and others see what we are up to.

I started a YouTube channel called New2theWoods when I moved from Chicago to the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Each platform is used to illustrate how my lifestyle and hobbies have changed from typical city living to things like composting invasive seaweed, making kombucha, splitting wood, making pond hockey rinks, slow motion hummingbirds, time lapse monarch births, etc. I landed here on permies while researching rocket stoves and donkey boilers in hopes of building one to heat water from the lake to flood my outdoor hockey rink.

I have a YouTube channel called "Fire and Ice Adventures".
Fire- because I was born and raised in Hawaii.
Ice- because my husband was born and raised in Wisconsin.

Currently the channel is about our travels as we spend most of our time traveling in our 5th wheel RV. As we travel we listen to Paul's permiculture podcasts, and hope to spend some time at his boot camp one day! 😁
Nice to meet all of you!

I do have my own Youtube 'channel'. Every once in a while I make a video and put it there. I promised some people to film my garden (allotment) more often ...
All of my videos are un-edited. All I do is use my tablet to film, sometimes I tell what there is to see (or to hear). After filming I put it on Youtube, just like that.

Here you can see them: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeccDj6g6LN1rSbwj-z5GYuiGnotzi5V9

This is great, and I look forward to looking through everyone's channels!

What I think would be awesome would be a place to help bump youtube channels up past the 1,000 subscribers/4,000 view hours like we did with Raven's channel. Maybe when people get in the 900 subscribers we could do a little push to get them over the hump. We could call it "subs4sub1000" or something like that. Maybe people would only post there when they're getting close. Like I said before, Youtube puts ads on pretty much everything now, so we might as well have some of that money going to permie projects.

Here's my channel for good measure. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT6H50SccbeQKlhHufvAo1A It's an eclectic mix of motion graphic videos with a few animal videos as well. (I posted a twelve second very pregnant goat video on youtube shorts last night and got 1,000 views. You would think I'd be thrilled, but it's a bit depressing seeing a lazy video geared for the tiktok brain gets so many views when other videos I spent months on have a quarter of the number of views!) If you have animals though, youtube shorts might be a good way to get your feet wet.

We're going to try to get some more videos on our permie projects as they start to take shape. We've been hesitant to share too much because we're still learning so much and don't feel confident telling people what to do when we haven't tried it ourselves. But we've made enough mistakes by now we can at least share those and hopefully help someone else avoid them!

If you have cat videos, I will be all over your channel. Sadly I only have one video of my last cat as she uses her weight to open the window panes and lets herself out. I can't imagine how she learnt to do that. Unless our Flintstone ancestors invented these windows, there would be nothing in her DNA to suggest this behaviour/instinct.

I have a few videos on utube.
I record city council meetings/members so they don't get too cruel.
Helps keep them civil.

Didn't participate in your survey because I don't do it for joy
just to protect myself and others.
and won't link to it because their deceit and bullying is too traumatic for most people to watch.

I like the idea of a thread to boost those of us who are getting close to the magic number.  That is a great idea.

Hi Michaela,
Up in the top right hand corner of the site you should see your name. If you click on that it will give you an option of editing your profile - under there you should be able to do all sorts of stuff to let people know more about yourself.
If this doesn't help - post in tinkering forums and ask for more assistance.

I have a little YouTube channel about mediterranean, semi-arid permaculture in the West Coast of South Africa.  Called Capeland Permaculture you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=capeland+permaculture
Last week I posted a catch-and-release of a Puff Adder (Africa's most dangerous snake).

I love Raven's channel! I'll be subscribing to more.

Anybody interested in putting together a permie YouTube mastermind group??

I recently read a book that's inspiring me to start a serious channel: The YouTube Formula. It recommends being in a creator's group, but most groups don't fit permaculture ideals.

I will put out my first video next month. Healthy, Green and Brave. For herbs, wild edibles, and adventures for families (pregnancy and breast-feeding, infant safe)

The YouTube Formula is a fantastic book.  

I'm up for joining a permaculture mastermind group.

For those who haven't read the book, Mastermind groups are private groups of creators,  usually following a theme where we chat about youtube, bounce ideas off each other,  motivating each other, sometimes even collaborate.   It's basically a safe place to obsess about youtube when most of the people in our real lives are board stiff with the topic.

My angora video from last year was a result of a yarn group I'm in.  We choose a theme and each made a video in their own style.   Then we shared links to the other videos.

These groups are extremely helpful.

As a viewer, I was aware that this was happening, since there's at least a couple different genres of YouTube channels that I watch/subscribe to that collaborate/cross-promote/share topics...
I do think the aspects of a "mastermind group" would be fun/useful... the body-doubling, accountability, brainstorming, critique, cross-promotion, advice...

I'd be interested! I am still flirting with the idea of my own YouTube channel, although I am only at the stormy-brain phase...(no video, editing, speaking practice as of yet...)
Some of the topics I had in mind are at least Permaculture adjacent?

For my app marketing I use instagram, because the exposure is better.

Getting some videos and audiobooks on my YouTube is on my To Do list. It won't be permie stuff, just my fiction and related look-at-me-I'm-an-author type videos.

There's a lot of other items on the To Do list ahead of it!

About a year ago I wrote I have a youtube channel. Okay, I do ... but I am not a real 'youtuber'. There are a few videos on my allotment garden, and some other ones. It has been many months since my last video.

For me, anything really. Odysee seems to be good, Rumble is good. There's a dozen more options and I'd rather be on any one of them than YouTube...

And, it wouldn't be a terrible idea to host permies videos on permies... sure there'd be an added cost to host, but there's added revenue/traffic opportunities as well. For most, the original selling point for starting on YouTube was zero cost to post/host, which was important due to no guaranteed traffic/revenue as a startup. For permies, with such a following, that might not be true anymore. Even just add some poster adds with referral discounts to ebooks and items for sale on permies, or promote awesome products you like. Seems like a win-win. I'd like that.

You know, some YouTubeies leave a little premium content for their own website. YouTube videos could entice folks to come see the full video (etc) at permies. Sure, even if it took 1-2 more folks to launch something like that there's a whole community of professionals on permies who would love to contribute with a side gig like that. Shoot, even just start with a few partner videos form other permascultureists who are more heavy into the video space. (Rob Avis from Verge maybe? or a dozen others I'm sure permies knows by name...) So it may be that for the shared audience/collaboration, other videographer/permaculterurists would just be willing to do all the video stuff...  or help significantly with the architecture to launch. Maybe crowd source short video tip submissions... Slap a pie bounty on video content submissions...

I think this gets even easier with permies values. Since the goal isn't to make a ton of money, go public, and sell to Google... That just leaves questions like "Can we reach more people by doubling down on multiple video platforms?" Can we use those videos to drive engagement at permies?" That's an obvious yes. "Can we do it and stay solvent, without compromising our values?" I'd think that's a yes as well, but it may take a little teasing out to develop. You could throw a rock and find people who'd want to help with that.

To Paul's point (paraphrased) "Step 1: make it s#itty. Step 2: make it less s#itty..." Maybe now is a good time to consider doing more/better videos...

We could set up a private mastermind group here on permies if there's enough interest.

I'm thinking a private forum and maybe a weekly half-hour zoom?

Makes sense. Something is resonating with you... I'd be willing to jump on a call with you to better understand what you find compelling. With that we may find it much easier to articulate a vision and drum up support (both from stakeholders and from folks who might want to help).

I've had a youtube channel since the early days of the tube.  I started it soon after moving off grid for the first time.  I show me building things, and talk about philosophy, and ideas, and blah blah.  It's all very embarrassing, but somehow enough people like it that it's become my main income.  (although, I have very low living costs).
Here's my channel.  A good place to start is "The Adventure Builder Movie".  It's the main one on the page and gives the basic gist of who and what and why I am.  Oh, and I'm currently in Panama.
