I had tried implementing rules that I would only permit so many minutes of the day to be spent on social media, and to stay away from negative YouTube videos, but by now I am spending much more time on YouTube. There are days when I enjoy watching recent videos from the channel The Quartering, which seem to be pretty successful for the content creator doing that channel, whose name is Jeremy. Some of his insights into what it’s like it being a successful YouTuber are interesting for me.
Despite an almost-total detox from YouTube I did, for the entire month of February, I find some pleasure once again in experiencing videos done on favourite channels of mine.
On YouTube, The Quartering is a channel that finds random news stories typically about gaming. The Quartering’s Jeremy gets outspoken about his bad experiences with YouTube monetization and his subscriber count. A week ago, although I try to stay resolved to avoid negative-minded creators, a rival YouTube launched what was perhaps a ninety-minute attack on Jeremy, reminding us again that Jeremy announced he was done with struggling with the 280-character social media platform Twitter and going so far as to speak out against it.
I enjoy some of the videos from The Quartering and I wasn’t aware of what Jeremy was like on Twitter. I haven’t had similar experiences with tweeting that have left me sour, and I think it’s positively stellar.

Can we get a screenshot thread going to commemorate his hottest of takes? https://t.co/KTrqrnS5WK
A lot of young people get on bandwagons. I tend to suspect that the young take for granted, often enough, anyway, the same tools which they have been shown how to use and for who it is second nature. Some of that stuff posted to TikTok is noteworthy for different reasons.
On TikTok, I may be looking away so often that I am not seeing the best “remixes,” but I don’t understand metrics on TikTok, other than that there are likes on relevant videos. I think TikTok is an enormous co-mingling of the best and the brightest, but I know The Quartering disagrees–makes sense, he’s on YouTube.
I see huge amounts of cooperative TikTok, and I see happiness, and fulfilled videographers. I guess I prefer words, of a nature that a computer keyboard does indeed capitulate, but there is a lot of creativity in user video.
I started telephone sales work in the 2000s, but after the economy crashed, I started spinning my wheels. My family got involved when my dad, who during his career with the municipality managed a cemetery for many years, was able to swing a deal when he learned of a little cemetery that required better operations, in his opinion.
I don’t think anyone refers to TikToks as edits, but The Force is a formidable category on YouTube.
