     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...

     February has been a record breaking month here at, uhhh, whatever we want to call this, my website and online presence, I guess. I hit five-hundred subscribers on youtube on the 23rd, which is super exciting. I recorded a fun video where I read, or try to read, the names of all my subscribers. If you're interested in hearing me mispronounce your name feel free to check it out. The fun doesn't stop there though, this month I broke the five dollar mark in youtube earnings, five dollars and twenty-four cents to be exact. At this rate I should be getting my first...

     January has been a good month, coming back from a month of not recording videos I've already been able to build up a bank of videos on Youtube so I can miss a few days here and there and not have a day where I don't post a video publicly, so that is always good. I've also started a new series on using Blender to create assets for Minetest. I feel like those videos are probably going to end up being fairly popular, though they will take some time to get to that point. Most of my subscribers probably won't be overly interested in them, but I know there are a lot of...

     The year has come to an end, and with that comes the obligatory farewell to 2016 and more importantly my earnings for the year. Now I always do the monthly earnings on my transparency report, and I report on those numbers at the end of each month this time I'll be reporting on the whole year, and not do a separate post for December, as that would be pointless. So lets start off with the earnings from ads on my blog, mainly because they are so pointless and I should just remove them. This entire year I made forty-one cents from ad views on my blog. Forty-one...

I'm dreamin' tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it's a long road back
I promise you

I'll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my...
