     September was a pretty good month, made four dollars and twenty-six cents. With releasing fewer and fewer videos on my old channel there have been less views, and with less views obviously less revenue. My new channel has been doing okay, but needs to get ten thousand views before it becomes eligible for advertising. At the time of writing this I have just slightly over one thousand views. Releasing videos obviously helps with that, and I'm still working on getting all the videos from my old channel published on the new Minetest only channel. Once the new channel is...

     Hey everybody, so it turns out that I'm not dead, I'm sure that's what many of you were thinking when I didn't put out a blog post last month with my earnings. Well here's the deal. I just bought a house, and was super busy moving in and fixing things that needed to be fixed as soon as possible, plumbing, electrical stuff, things like that. With everything I was doing on my house I just didn't have time to make a blog post, I didn't even record any Minetest videos last month. I just today finally built myself a computer desk, I'd been working on plans for it for a while...

    As some of you probably already know I’ve recently purchased a home and have begun moving in. This has led to a decrease in my Minetest video production, but not too worry. I have a bank of videos that will cover my short absence until I can start recording again.
    An interesting development has come up, I’ve started recording videos of repairs that I’m making around my house and have decided that I should probably not be posting them on the same channel that I’m posting my Minetest videos on. Here lies a problem though, as my...

     I feel like I need to start this off with a great big, huge THANK YOU to everybody that watched and shared my videos this month. By some seemingly impossibly feat I made more money this month than any other to date. I brought in 6.47 on youtube, which is amazing. I'm not sure what caused the increase, other than more people watching the ads. I only had one video that performed exceptionally well (2K views), and that was my Minetest 0.4.16 release video, and that didn't have any ads on it, so I'm not really sure how that could have effected my earnings. I did have an...

     This month was good on YouTube, fourth highest earnings to date. Ads on my website performed as usual, very poorly, if it weren't for the fact that I plan on doing a HUGE overhaul to my website soon, one that will optimize the ads location, I'd probably just get rid of them, as I'm certainly not making enough money off of them to even consider them being useful. Four dollars and forty-seven cents, while not great, is enough to keep me happy for the time being.
     In the next few months I will hopefully be doing a major update, one that will...

     A short while back I received a message on my Facebook page from a fan who was suggesting that I get a Patreon or look into creating a course on Udemy. I'd never heard of Udemy prior this, so I looked it up, 'cause that's what you do when you come across something and you don't know what it is. Quickly for those of you that haven't heard of Udemy it's a site online where you can take courses in many different things, some free, and some for pay. I have been thinking about writing a curriculum that teaches coding using Minetest as a base, and this was kinda the kick...

     April has come and gone, and while at the beginning my ad earnings were really low, they managed to pull themselves back up to a respectable amount and I ended the month for four dollars and thirty-six cents. While not the best month for earnings I don't think I've been hit by the adpocalyps that people on youtube have been talking about. My views and likes have stayed relatively on par to every other month.
     As always you can find the full report of my earnings here, and if you find a few extra coins you can throw them my way here.

     The Month of March went by so quickly, but that is what happens when you're busy doing what you love. Nothing too much to report this month, I continued to pump out Youtube videos at a maddening pace. I should probably say recorded videos at a maddening pace. Believe it or not, but I already have a few videos ready for the Month of June!!! I did start a series of Blender tutorials, and those have been received pretty well, and I'm assuming with time they will become decent earning videos, as there are tons of people that want to learn how to use Blender outside of the...

     I'm starting work on a new Minetest subgame. You're probably familiar with my Survive! subgame, and that was a good starting point, but things have gotten to the point where things are just far too unorganized, and it will be best to just start an entire game from scratch, rather than modding default_game. Why start a new subgame?      Well for me it's mostly about compatibility and good code. In my Survive! subgame there is code for plants in default, plants, farming, food, desert_life, and survival. This makes compatibility difficult because when I need to...

     If you follow me on Youtube, and actually watch any of my videos to the end ;) you've probably seen my endcards, amazing bits of work they are. The endcards, not my graphics. For those that don't know what endcards are; youtube added a feature that lets a creator put four links as cards on the end of their videos. The cards can link to playlists, videos, a website, a subscribe link, and possibly more. They are useful for keeping people viewing your content and help drive traffic to associated websites and such. Even better than all that though is how they can...
