If you have been active on any of the Social Media pages or heard the news getting about recently, you may (or may not) have heard a few things circulating around regarding Content Creators, including that of the new rules being brought in by YouTube, outlining new guidelines specifically for and making it more difficult than before for smaller channels monetizing their Videos.
This obviously caused a HUGE amount of outrage, and with good reason, especially saying this has come about, conveniently after the Logan Paul incident, making people wonder why YouTube has been picking out and victimising smaller Creators who are trying to grow.
But this hasn’t been the only time this year (already), that the name of the creator has been spoken of negatively and faced backlash.
At the moment it actually seems as though Bloggers/Vloggers are at the forefront of Media coverage and not for the reasons we would want to be, and although there is a lot of good coming from our communities, OUR being the operative word, it is becoming apparent that the bad is outshining this good.
I think it’s important to remember that actually, that we are a community and that we need to be the ones to continue the way we want things to go. By this I mean, let’s fight fire with water as opposed to more fire if that makes sense.
Why subject ourselves to the negativity that is surrounding us all? Instead pick ourselves back up, brush off what is holding us back and make an impact the way we know we can.
We have to support each other first in order to strengthen and build on what we have. We can blame others all we want, but it won’t make the change we want. We just have to keep pushing through and sharing the Content we love and it will all fall into place.
We’ve got this!
