Hi guys, Ryan Lamont (TheRyanLamont) here with a wee post about the achievements of myself and fellow New Zealand Vlogger Amber (theloyalbadger). As some of you may have heard, Amber and myself were offered YouTube Partnership by Google a few days ago, and we’ve been celebrating ever since.
It’s great to see that Google is offering dedicated New Zealand video creators the benefits of full partnership, allowing them to gain money to allow for the future improvement of their content. But of course Amber and I are not celebrating the fact that we can earn money, since we have been monetized for the last few months, it’s more the recognition from YouTube and the branding benefits that we’re really excited about.
So I’ve embedded this post with our latest videos, and hope that you’ll enjoy them. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out both Amber and I’s channel and support us by viewing, commenting, liking and subscribing to our videos. Thanks guys, the support is much appreciated!
Hey guys, Ryan (TheRyanLamont) here with a quick note on a wee change on the blog. I had previously used a tag cloud to show all the NZYT’ers I knew of on the right column. But I have now taken away that tag cloud and have replaced it with a neat list of all the NZYT’ers, with a click through link to their channel. I think this is a much more helpful and clearer way to find NZYT’ers, and this also allows me to utilise the tags to bring in more views to the blog, which will give NZYT more exposure!
Hopefully you guys agree with my minor adjustments and find them helpful. and since this is just a tiny post with little content, I’m going to stick Andrew’s (Strugsnotdrugs) video of yesterday’s random weather that is being called ‘snowmageddon’.
Hey guys, Ryan (TheRyanLamont) here with this week’s NZYT video of the week. This week’s winner is one of the newest NZYT’ers, and the winning video is her first vlog (or at least, first solo vlog). That’s right, Lisa from (SmjAndTqwee) is this week’s winner with her video “Generic vlog #4”.
I picked this video since it is everything a blog should be. It’s entertaining, short and gives us a wee insight to Lisa’s personality. I see vlogs as what they are intended to be – video logs. Visual logs of certain points in our lives. For those amazing daily vloggers of NZYT, who can actually manage to create a video every day, I think all your efforts will really pay off, since having this visual library of points in your life is such an awesome thing to have. When I look at old family holiday videos I find it incredibly interesting to see how I used to look, sound and act – something you can only see through video. So I hope I can regain the motivation and time that will allow me to vlog once again, since I think it’s a really rewarding thing. So congrats Lisa, you have created, what I see as, a perfect vlog. You entertained your audience, kept it short and digestible (something some NZYT’ers need to work on) and documented a moment in your life that you will be able to look back on in the future.
Hey guys, Ryan (TheRyanLamont) here with this week’s NZYT video of the week! This week’s winner is Marc (BarkMarc) for his video, “SOUTH AFRICAN’S PRIVATE DATING VIDEO”. In the video, Marc plays one of his regular character, Richard the South African, and he talks about his experiences of trying to find love in New Zealand. It’s a very humorous video that I’m sure you’ll all enjoy!
