Dear creators: next time someone tells you the key to marketing is making a youtube video, consider this:
500 hours of content are uploaded to youtube every minute. Let that sink in.
Surviving an industry predicated on draining participants for funds means not feeding cuckoos.

Getting above the noise is hard. Even the Titans are begging you for your attention.

A quote attributed to Aleister Crowley is 'every man, every woman, is a star'.

Be excellent at your craft, have fun doing it, enjoy some self satisfaction from making stuff.

Expression is good. Empowering.

Just don't be too surprised if no one is listening, because everyone's talking :)

Do stuff cos you love it. The rest is too random to game :)
