    So I do like stop motion videos and other random stuff on this channel I'm currently commenting with but I started out originally with gaming. Nowdays when I try to do gaming videos I do not get as many views as the other videos that I upload nowdays so should I make a second channel for gaming and how do you think I shld balance the two?

  48. Dcube1306

    vidIQ Thank you so much! Really appreciate the fact that you took the time to answer my question!

  49. vidIQ

    vidIQ4 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ

    If you're getting more views on your stop-motion videos than your gaming videos, I would say that yes it may be smart to start a second channel just for gaming. That said, as for balancing them, it's about what makes you happy and the time you're willing to spend making the various types of content. Good luck!

    Well, going for a really popular topic like call of duty or Minecraft you shouldn't do. Go for a smaller less popular game like Halo or older call of duty or doom

    Hi, I’m someone who loves to play games (and their specific modes) that really capture my fantasy and/or is fun (prefer multiplayer). They don’t really have to be the latest and greatest (I’ve seen new PAworksrs revive dead games). I’m planning to start a channel this year, after I join college. Don’t have a next-gen console, just a PS3 and laptop. My aim is to, if I ever grow big, use the revenue I generate to fund the food of underprivileged kids, because I know what going hungry feels like, and I want to help reduce a l’il bit o’ pain in the world. I think you should make a video on budget equipment that new channels should have. Ty!
