Perhaps choose a few hot topics or things of interest and have a small panel of permies just chat it up. I'd be willing to give it a go if asked to participate. Actual permies.com members doing face to face discussion and allowing others to watch live or later as well as comment and ask questions may bring in a whole new audience of Participators. Forums are good but nothing beats sitting around a campfire and working things out in real time. Also... it could be monetized in many many ways.

I'm wondering if there's a way to target, re-format, or feature your vlogs more for YouTube consumers. Though I don't know what that might mean.
I share your vlogs with friends, many of whom are considering the practice of permaculture in their personal settings. Some are apartment dwellers, others have rental homes, a few even have acreage. I figure that everyone who sees your smiling face participates in Paul's scheme for world domination. Don't stop. We still have a long way to go!
Cassie Langstraat wrote:So I have been thinking about my permies.com news videos quite a bit and I have REALLY been enjoying doing them, and I know that people around permies enjoy them too. BUT, I started doing them with the hopes that it would help build the empire, and in turn infect more brains with permaculture. However, it doesn't really seem to be as successful as I thought it would be. It seems that the only people really watching them are people who are already at permies.com. I kind of thought that people would share them more, or something. I don't know.
So I am kind of stumped. I don't want to stop doing them, but at the same time it seems like I could be spending the time it takes me to prepare, shoot, and edit these doing other things for the empire that have a bigger affect. I'm just really torn. Thoughts?
There was torrential downpour in CA this weekend so this one is from my room again.
