  1. Digging how this video looks! Crazy clear image, interesting lighting… very cool.

    As for competitors or collaborators… I see them as team mates. The more we share other channels, the more we expose viewers to content they’re looking for.

    • It’s almost “freaky” quality… where it looks so realistic that it starts to get creepy real… as if my iMac screen was just a frame and you were standing on the other side peaking through. As creators, we look to perfect our video quality, however when we do, the realism is pretty weird when viewed on a device. Weirdly awesome, that is.

  2. I’ve yet to find someone who writes and plays my style of music that vlogs that is close enough for me to collab with. Plenty of Scottish vloggers though, maybe a collab out at least one of them eventually.

    Great video from both of you btw.

    • Barry Euphorik Maybe u can collab with a music vlogger or simply a composer of your type. Since you’re doing both of these, you could collab with either. 😀

      Oh and you can do a fusion too. Fuse your style of music with another compatible style. For example, Emma Blackery (acoustic style singer) collabed with Boyinaband (electronic musician) to do a remix of her song. “The Promise”. Can look it up if it helps & maybe check out the original “The Promise” by Blackery. 🙂

    • Thanks for the reply. Collaborating musically with someone would be no problem since i know plenty of musicians. Just none are vlogging and that’s what i want to do on my channel.

    • None of them might be blogging, but there is still plenty of opportunity to promote them and they can in turn promote you. You ask them to use their music in your vlog and then link them. Then they mention you – collaboration complete. It’s just one example, there are a multitude of other ways you can make it click 🙂

  3. *Hey Derral, What can I do to get a channel evaluation, I’d really love some insight for my channel to move forward, thank you so much!*

    • Moe Othman hi moe, im a fan and also a new youtuber just like your asking for a review would you take a look at one of my videos and just tell me what you think, your opinion means a lot to me, much love ❤

    • Wow, you have so many topics covered on your channel. I bet it is easier to find separate people for each of the niches you touch than finding someone who does as much as you do 🙂

    • Hi Vroomreacts. Well my journey of learning to edit and being in front of the camera has taking me here. I really like watching videos that are well made and edited regardless of topic. Watching skilled editors creations fascinates and inspires me so much. There is got to me a community for people like that out there somewhere…right ?

    • There are quite a few, usually specialized around a specific topic just like Derral is focusing on the area around promoting youtube channel/videos 🙂

  4. I’ve found the off grid cabin community to be really interactive and supportive. It’s been a great experience overall. I’m looking forward to collaborating with some of them, but I’d like to build a bigger following first. Maybe it’s different now that I’m closing in on 1000 subs, but when I had 50 subs, I felt a little funny approaching some of them.

  5. Much of the firearms community is doing what I’m doing, but hey I’m the new guy so what do you expect? Personality is a key differentiator
