Some Advice for Aspiring YouTube’rz

For those of you just starting out on YouTube, there’s  a lot involved. But you really need to hold your horses and remember to stick with the basics.

I have a few different categories of videos. Devotionals, Inspirational, Travel vLogs, Fitness How-To, Supplement Reviews, Equipment Reviews, to name a few. All of these are sorted in categories, and arranged on the main page of my channel. I use EYE CATCHING and INFORMATIVE thumbnails. Along with a channel banner, that is attractive, and lets folks know where they are. The banner and logo is throughout ALL of my social media, videos and of course THIS website.  Remember this important point. It’s all about BRANDING. Note:  there is a lot more to branding, this is branding 101 info above.

Now back to the videos… The last 2 categories in the list, my equipment and supplement reviews, are the ones that get the most people watching!  How do I know that?  By my analytics and view counts.

Knowing that important tidbit of data, I will focus on what is getting the most views hoping that I can encourage viewers to watch my Inspirational and Devotionals by having “CARDS” at the end of my video for them to click on and watch.  >>> READ MORE

What to use to record YouTube videos – The vLogging Gear that Fit4Faith Uses

Do you ever ask what to use to record YouTube videos? Curious how I create videos on a shoestring budget? Well here you go, a little show and tell on my gear!

My apologies for the poor audio. As I am really sick, I was having trouble breathing. I could not put the mic on me as you would hear bad rattling from my lungs! Ugghhh… I am so congested and stuffed up I had to over process my audio so my voice has some normality to it, but overall it sounds like a bad AM radio program! You can hear the quality difference when I do the direction mic demonstrations. >>> READ MORE

T-Shirt Designs by Richard

My recent design printed

I have been designing various T-Shirt art, more as an outlet for creativity.  I find it relaxing.  Here are some of my designs. I will be adding more!

Below is the newest one I printed and I am wearing at Planet PITness one early weekend morning.

Next is the Mind/Matter design. This is my very first design and printing, but the Gray and white did not come out as I had hoped as the T-Shirt company prints differently on white shirts. This would have popped on a black or dark gray.  Next time! >>> READ MORE
