Oh, no, it’s YouTube restricted mode!

What is YouTube restricted mode? Restricted mode is an optional setting used to screen out potentially mature content, or at least that’s what YouTube says, but the company seems to be deciding on its own who is potentially mature and who isn’t; i.e. Pewdiepie, Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones, Tim Pool, etc.


It appears, now that Google AdSense is having some trouble with advertisers backing out, that YouTube is censoring certain channels in order to try to keep advertisers from leaving, or at least that’s the story.


What does YouTube restricted mode mean for you?


Consider yourself the UK, and YouTube is the EU. Invoke a Brexit. Leave YouTube!


Look, it means that if YouTube decides you’re an extremist, you can’t get organic views to your channel, because your videos cannot be found, or they demonetize your channel for a while, like when a new episode first airs, and then reinstate monetization after your big influx of views. That means you either get less views and subscribers, which leads to less revenue from Google AdSense, or it means that after you’ve lost monetization from your initial influx of viewers, you can earn some pennies after monetization has been reinstated, but Google AdSense is NOT your only option. Think about investment portfolios; you don’t invest in a single company, right?!


I’m a huge fan of many YouTube personalities. These are self made people who have found real ways to connect with a fan base, and make money from their own ideas and presentations without having to go through the mainstream, garbage conglomerate. I don’t, however, understand why they are all crying about this embargo YouTube has created. I mean, it’s an inconvenience, sure; it’s like getting fired from work, or getting your hours cut; you get pissed first then you get a new job with a new company. When you work on your own, you just have to find a new way to monetize.


This begs the question: Is there a way around this censorship? Yes! You can leave YouTube, let the Libtards and their 5 fans have it, and move on to a different venue.


It is just as easy to earn a living from Vimeo and Dailymotion as it is YouTube. You are simply not familiar with it is all. People don’t talk as much about Dailymotion and Vimeo stars because the majority of those stars are also on YouTube, but why in Hell would you limit yourself to a single platform anyway? Recall what I said about investment portfolios?


You can monetize Dailymotion without Google AdSense, so let ‘em suck a dick! Vimeo allows people to donate tips; half of you are already out there begging people through GoFundMe, IndieGoGo, Kickstarter, and Patreon anyway. At least on Vimeo, your fans can see that you are actually working and releasing new content, but you can still keep you crowdfunding platforms as well.


Now, at the end of a Kickstarter campaign, I don’t usually know if that movie I funded ever gets made! On Vimeo, people donate after they see your work, so you’re going to have work, but again, my point is that since YouTube may be giving you a hard time, you can work around it, and as more and more people leave YouTube for Vimeo and Dailymotion, I guarantee the opportunities for monetizing will accrue; the advertisers will follow.


That’s the way the world works. Don’t get angry that YouTube is ruined. Leave it. Don’t be scared that you’re going to have to get a day job in order to support your filming hobbies! Start slowly moving your content from YouTube to Vimeo and Dailymotion, and tell YouTube restricted mode: Suck a dick!


See, here’s the thing; YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion didn’t always exist. If you cannot earn money through them, you will stop using them. If you stop using them, investors and advertisers will also stop using them because viewers will be leaving to follow their favorite performers where ever they go.


You can place videos on your own website!!! Ask for donations! Sell merchandise! Leave YouTube!


Then, someone will engineer something new. That’s the way business, technology, and business technology works!


You have options. Use them!


For one, all of these people that I mentioned; Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones, Tim Pool, Pewdiepie (who shouldn’t even be in the same category) already have tons of fans who not only watch their videos but also visit their websites, so there’s an easy way to make extra money through either blogging or merchandise, or both! Trust me, if Paul Joseph Watson made a shirt that read: Populism is the new Punk! I’d buy it! That’s easy money!


The moral of this story is that you people making a living from YouTube are businessmen, and businessmen can recognize market patterns, so recognize the patterns.


You also have to understand that social media monetization is still in its infancy. What was the first social media platform? MySpace? Is it still around? Not in its original format. FaceBook won’t last; neither will Twitter, or anything else. Something new will come along to fill a niche market, and it will have monetization accessibility.


Companies come and companies go, and if YouTube is committing suicide, leave YouTube, and go somewhere else; the fans will follow, and so, too, will the advertisers. If the existing venues aren’t effective, improve them, or create something new. That’s the beauty of business! It’s why I don’t need a mainstream publisher to earn a living. It’s why producers have gone indie. It’s why game developers have gone indie.


I’ll never tire of saying this: we are living in an indie age! Musicians, writers, directors, actors, producers, artists, video game designers are all going indie. YouTube is no longer indie. That’s all it is!


To all you performs, who I cherish; Paul Joseph Watson, Tim Pool, Pewdiepie, Alex Jones, please keep doing what you’re doing, and rather than bunching your panties over Leftist YouTube, start uploading you work to new platforms. We will follow you.


Thanks for reading. Please like and share.

Get backlinks for a dollar

What are backlinks, and are they still relevant?

Backlinks are URLs that lead from a website back to your website, and yes, they are still very important to aspiring entrepreneurs.

I want to give everyone an opportunity to link back to my web site.

I’m an author, an editor, and an entrepreneur myself. I work with many other individuals; from cover art designers, to other authors, editors, bloggers, reviewers, artists, affiliate marketers, and small business owners.

Together, we build a sort of freelance community, and often times, I’m asked if I know someone in a particular field, and most likely, I do.

On top of that, my site sees regular traffic; everyday, more and more people visit my site to see artwork, check out books, or read reviews or blog posts, and many times, I feature other people and their products, sites, or posts.

I’m offering everyone a chance to backlink to my site on my special backlinks page.

Why backlink to my site?

Rather than spending as much as twenty dollars to add a single book to a site like IAN, which only attracts other authors, and gives readers no incentive to drop by and purchase books, I’m only charging a dollar to link your site to mine permanently.

Whether you’re a product reviewer, an aspiring artist or writer, an editor, an animator, a musician, a voice actor, a producer, anything at all, and you have a business, service, or product page–this must be a professional page not a personal page– and you want to generate better search engine results then you need more backlinks, on a relevant site like mine, where not only will Google reveal you to the public, but others in your field can find you by just scrolling down my backlinks page.

For one dollar, I will permanently add a descriptive link back to your site, author page, artist page, or business page, and I’ll even write a short blog post to advertise you and your services or products, which I will promote.

All you need to do is click the PayPal button, and in the notes, place the URL of the page you want backlinked. I’ll do  the rest; I will check out your site and write a positive post based on what I see.

Let’s show all those mega corporations what the power of people banding together can accomplish.

Free speech all day, every day!

What if you woke up in a world where you were not allowed to let people know how you feel? What if in that world, the rules changed and were interpreted on an individual basis? What if in this bizarre world, you’re told that you have certain freedoms, and yet, despite these freedoms, you are accused of breaking the rules? What if, worse yet, when asked to defend yourself, you’re instructed to stay away from certain words, terms, ideas, and concepts, the very concepts from which your freedoms are derived? Sounds pretty close to 1984, right? Sounds even closer to Nazi Germany, doesn’t it?

Here you will find a ten minute video regarding the arrest and trial of Michael Hoffman, who while standing on public property was accosted by law enforcement for holding a sign that expressed his beliefs.

As you can see, Mr. Hoffman was arrested because the JAA law enforcement stated that he needs to follow procedures as declared by Debra Braga to assert free speech. This is what free speech is according to our constitution, which we must uphold so long as we would like to be free; The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices. It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

All this from

So, we’ve heard  Elizabeth Hernandez state that the JAA is public property. We’ve heard Judge Shore say the JAA is public property. Everything should have then moved on smoothly; law enforcement made a mistake due to their ignorance of the law, Mr. Hoffman was arrested, and in trial he should be able to defend himself and subsequently sue the state for wrongful arrest, but the defense is barred from recording the trial, why? The O.J. trial was not only recorded, it was televised. The defense is also barred from speaking words such as free speech and first amendment; this is absolute lunacy, but why do I care? Because if we, the people who are to uphold the constitution, don’t bat an eye at this, we are inviting those powers at large to stomp on more and more of our rights. My question to you is not whether or not you care about this, or if you should care- no, my question is; where does it end? After they obliterate what’s left of free speech, none of us will have the right to tell the government to stop trampling on the rest of the constitution. You don’t like or agree with the constitution? Well, it’s due to the constitution that you have the freedom to denounce it, so maybe don’t denounce or you’ll one day wake up in a world where “authority” figureheads lead you like the blind leading the blind.

This video from an incident in Florida is proof that matters only get worse; this asinine judge doesn’t understand the law, the cops don’t understand the law, the lawyers don’t understand the law, and the only people who do understand it are told that they can’t use it in defense of their behavior.

Hey, Judge Shore, that courtroom isn’t yours, it’s ours. Your salary comes from us, we paid to build the JAA property, we paid for your courtroom, and we pay your salary.

Help me spread this into every conceivable corner of the internet. It’s time these idiots learn that they are not above the law, that they cannot interpret the law to suit themselves, and that they do not have authority over us. Authority is an arbitrary concept, a concept designed to keep us–the people–in check because the fat cats are few, scared, and weak, and so they exert this authority in order to confuse us, sedate us, separate us. Lawyers, stand up for Hoffman. Judges, chastise your fellows in raven robes when they abuse their power.

C’mon on people, do you not see what will become of us if we let them shove us around? Whether or not you realize it, we were not given a democracy.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Franklin was queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention, a lady asked Dr. Franklin “Well Doctor what have we got, a republic or a monarchy.” Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.”

Looks like we’ve let it slip from our grasp…so please, spread the word. Otherwise, next time you want to say what’s on your mind, you may have to think twice, swallow your pride, your anger, suck up the injustice, and remember that you did nothing to fight for your given freedoms.
