Just a quick thank you to MV and all of you for supporting my YouTube channel and viewing my videos over the past couple of years. Your contribution has helped me more than you'll ever know, and for that, I am extremely grateful.

"Tripp On Two Wheels" is now pushing 20,000 subscribers, generates roughly 25,000-30,000 views per day, and has saved me from financial peril as Covid does it's best to continue ruining my business.

I'd also like to encourage any of you with that creative itch to jump in and give it a try. Lord knows, if this 59 year old tech ignoramus can do it, surely you can too.

Saludos! Ride safe everyone.

I'm glad to hear you're doing well. I have the itch but not much else, so I'll leave it up to the more talented among us. Razz emoticon

Thanks Jet Peddler. Iv'e enjoyed all your videos that I watched. I finally became a subscriber. I'm glad you are making some money from it. I told Ms Miguel about the fact that you've somehow managed to monetize your hobby. She says that's why there hundreds of people that post relatively simple things like putting on make up and hairdos and shaving and changing bicycle tires and ....

Cheers
Miguel

No itching but I prefer to encourage that of others, especially those who talk about two-wheeled vehicles with engines.

Good for you Tripp! I'm sure that the pandemic was brutal for your other business and glad YouTube has helped keep you afloat. Hopefully soon it's just extra income as things start to come back to normal.

Best news I've heard all day. As an influencer you will have to have a Manager to keep track of product that will flow in for endorsement and sponsors queuing for your attention. Then there is media training for interviews and possibly a TV reality series 'Keeping Up With Jet Peddler.' The world is your oyster. Congrats.

I think he has a way to go before he in an "influencer" Good start though and as long as the numbers keep going up that's great. If you can get the Silver Creator Award then you can get more attention but even at 10k subs I believe there are benefits.

With luck, I should hit 20k subscribers late next week. 100k is a fantasy at this point, but hell, a year ago I thought 5k was a pipe dream.

JP, this is fabulous news: I'm just catching up here, and knew about the precarious state of your "main" gig, so I'm thrilled your YT channel is rocking steady for you. I am subscribed to your channel, but have some catching-up to do, and shall do so!

Very impressive!

I have done 49 videos since early 2017. My only videos with any real traction are one I published two weeks ago on my new Brompton bike, one I published in 2018 on how to install an Ikea sink, and one from last fall on my sit-stand desk.

Youtube likes volume, and I am a S-L-O-W editor.

I have to say though I just do it for fun. Editing videos gives you the power to make anything happen.

Congratulations, what a great story. And yes I am a subscriber.
