Everyday since the new year started I've been working on making videos for my youtube channel, The Sex Robot Show, a project that was based on my thesis. A few days ago, i got yeeted the fuck off the platform. It was really disorienting. At first, I didnt even react; a few days later telling myself I should be happy that it happened sooner rather than later. Tons of people were sending their condolonces, and suggestions to just make another account. But if the whole thing could come crashing down at a moment's notice, and the content certainly wasn't going to change, it just wouldn't be worth the constant stress wondering if all my hours editing would wind up for nought.
And when I say i got yeeted, i mean Im the baby in a Joan Cornelia painting. I cant even view youtube links people send me. I am banished. BA-NEESHED. banísche™-ed. And it's just not worth the effort.
So I've been looking into other platforms, and trying to take it as a blessing in disgusise. While I was getting tons of great feedback, and views faster than I expected, I was a long way off from youtube's monetization goals. I've found an alternative called Odysee that puts content on the blockchain and allows creators to start earning immediately. Obviously the reach is a lot smaller, but it might be a chance for me, to be, in the immortal words of Ice Cube, a big fish in a small pond.
Im also taking all my weird editing energy and throwing it into making this website for myself.
