You’ve started making YouTube videos and people other than yourself have started watching them. So now you’re wondering, when should I consider monetization and put those ads on my videos that everyone else seems to have?
It’s happened. Someone came along and gave your video a thumbs down. You’ve stared at it for hours. You’re obsessed with it. Who would have done such a thing? Why did they do it? Before you decide to throw in the towel and quit YouTube, let’s have a chat.

I have a routine in the morning. For the past year to two years, I have started my mornings by waking up early. I get up between 5:30am-6:00am, while the house is still quiet. The getting up part didn’t start as a routine. My routine started with me waking up and being annoyed with myself for starting this routine in the first place.

There is a lot of processing you have to do as you figure out how you are going to deal with this new adventure and how you cope will impact the decisions you make. I hope this was helpful for you if you have found yourself with a viral video.
