Jakks Pacific sent us a demo unit of their ReDo Skateboardline for free as part of a Twitter Party that I am a co-host for on Thursday. Opinions are my own.
The kids have been very curious about skateboards ever since my sister game them her old board. Andy also has a skateboard that converts to a scooter and back. But they have never seen a skateboard as nice as this one from ReDo. From deck to trucks to wheels this thing is beautiful. I don’t say that lightly either as I am not much of a skateboard fan as I was when I was a kid. My old board is kicking around somewhere on the Cape right now. I am pretty sure it is showing all of its 30 years of wear and tear, too.
Over four years ago I started seeing a bunch of people making video game videos on YouTube. I thought that I needed to become part of a multi-channel network in order to do so and I made a dumb decision. I joined one, for five years. Yeah, for five years this network was supposed to help me improve my YouTube channel but rather they only took a hefty cut of my earnings. Did they promote me in any way? No. Was there much help at all? Not really. I made a very dumb decision and I learned from that.
Recently YouTube took monetization away from many small time creators who did not have at least 4000 hours of view time and 1000 subscribers. And it was because of these changes that I was dropped from the multi-channel network despite qualifying to continue to be monetized by YouTube.
Well, that is GREAT news to me! I had been counting the days until I would be free from that network. Now I am and I’m starting to produce some more.
