Do you have a blog or a YouTube Channel?

Greetings! How are you doing? Are you a content creator and have a blog or a YouTube channel? Share a link at the discussion section below and I'll check it out.

I have a YouTube Channel where I create coding content. I have been creating tutorials for 11 months now. So far it have been great. I have 38k total views, 870 subsribers, $0 earned.

It's almost an year now. Although I haven't earned with YouTube yet, I have learnt extra skills like video editing, graphics design, communication skills(still working on this) and more. I have helped others in the field and this have helped me to deepen my knowledge as well.

My goal before an year ends is to reach 1k subscribers. You can check out my channel and subscribe if you find my content helpful. Here is the link: https://youtube.com/chaoocharles

You can also leave a link to your blog or channel at the discussion section below and I'll check it out.

Stay awesome! ๐Ÿ’™

I have a blog:

emgoto.com

It's still very tiny (under 1000 page views a month) but I've been posting to it at least once a week all year. I'm thinking at some point of revamping the design a bit, and also adding a mailing list.

It's a great start and yeah, a mailing list would help notify visitors about new content and therefore retain 'em. It's actually a nice blog, I have taken a look at some post (monetizing Gatsby blog and state management using redux).

Yeah! I didn't realise people actually use mailing lists (I never sign up for them myself).

I liked the design, simple and developer-friendly due to the Terminal themed, Dark UI.

All the very best.

I do silent livecoding with a "primitive" approach youtube.com/watch?v=GFWWjLQokIU building web tools from scratch. I'm setting some restrictions like not using libraries and not checking answers on google. So far I have little views and subscribers but I'm having fun.

Hello Everyone,

I do not have a blog but I write a lot on Medium.

My medium username is @TheAkshayKhale.

I also have a medium publication named PeakMind, feel free to join me, I will be more than happy to add you as a Writer. The publication is not specific to tech, we publish all kind of articles over there.

Best.

Thanks! Any particular feedback on the responsiveness?

Like on the first post, "fluid interface", I have to scroll side by side to read the main content. The screenshots are too big on mobile. You can make them small on mobile or make them scroll so that the main content is intact. (My opinion though)

hmm interesting. The min-width is set to 320px of the website, but around that breakpoint it should work correctly. The code-blocks are side-scrollable by design though. Everything else should only be vertical scrollable. I am gonna look into it, thanks.

Already found a small visual bug that added a small side scroll on the smallest screen sizes, which should not happen. Would not have found it (soon) without your feedback. Thanks

YouTube Channel. I don't have a lot more than memes right now, but the memes are tech-related. I am working on a FreeBSD documentary for it, plus tutorials on a basic transpiler for a custom Lisp-like language to JavaScript in JavaScript, tutorials for installing/using FreeBSD, how to make a VSCode Syntax Highlighting Extension, plus more.

I have a blog here:
blog.jam-es.com
It doesn't get many views, I tend to use it to write up answers to questions I get asked rather for views.
Plan on adding AdSense soon. And writing content on Blockchain, Quantum Computing and also programming in .NET.

I've had a blog for quite some time that I post to intermittently (michael.codes). I've also been posting the articles here on dev.to lately as well.

I have thought about giving a go at making content for YouTube, but I'm not sure how well I would keep up at that given how infrequent my blogging has usually been.

Wow, that's a lot of content bro. Keep up the good work. Have you considered creating a mail list, to notify funs about new content. Also if you have good traffic you can consider adding a few ads and using affiliate links. They can act as a good reward for your hard work. Anyway, I'm impressed and keep on creating ๐Ÿ’™

I have considered it, and tried it but I prefer to just tweet when I publish a new article.

I have no idea how much traffic I have, I donโ€™t have analytics on my blog, I donโ€™t like to be tracked so I donโ€™t track any visitor.
