This week's episode of YouTube 101 is all about mindset. The mindset of a YouTuber, to be more specific. I know a lot of you guys think:
"I want to make YouTube videos, but I'm afraid no one will find my videos interesting"
I can understand this fear, but what I have noticed when speaking to a lot of you who feel this way, is that you use your definition of interesting to gauge whether or not your video is interesting. This is a common beginner's mistake among YouTubers.
You, right here, right now, are not your target audience. I don't make YouTube videos for myself. Perhaps I make some videos for my past self or for my future self, but not my current self. Making videos for someone who knows exactly everything you know today, who has the same opinions, feelings, and experiences, would be quite pointless.
Note! The only exception to this would be humor/entertainment videos. If you are or wish to be on the entertainment side on YouTube, then it is okay to use your own humor as the baseline if you want to.
