With many of us working from home and looking for different creative outlets, a few of my friends have mentioned starting their own YouTube channels as a hobby/side project. Have you been considering this as well? If so, what would your channel be on? If you already have your channel, feel free to share it in the comments! Would love to check it out.

My youtube channel is just a set of Growth hacking tutorials (in line to what I was doing on medium). I'm preparing a new channel for QApop.com which will be showing how to use the tool (doing something similar to Phantombuster channel)

I researched this topic too, and found out that sharing your experience is a good topic to start, as people often use Youtube to "google" about problem solving. I plan to start on the topics around building a startup, accelerators, product management, how to start, being a woman in tech/startup world.

Not Youtube, but I've thought a lot about starting a twitch or other livestream channel around daily stuff. Could be around investing/trading, programming, playing games, or travelling. I like the livestream medium a bit more since the audience is okay with genre shifts from day to day. They also generally have a lower bar for production quality (I mean in terms editing/cutting on a video).

Digital marketing, video production
@weeb_girl Because cat videos are trending, and they are fun to watch. Watching cat videos can be very relaxing. I think there was an elephant in the first YouTube video. But time has shown cats are more fun to watch :)

Bleeding edge tech. AI, Video & Drones
I think I'd do something about Artificial Intelligence, maybe something related to Generative Adversarial Networks and how to build them (they're the same used to generate realistic looking photos / videos / etc). Or just tech in general.

Back in March, we had to stay at home. Looking ahead I thought to myself what would be a good skill to learn during these times and I saw the huge rise in live streaming video. From April to June I learned and acquired everything I needed from software to hardware on how to live stream. By July I launched my first episode of the SEO Video Show https://youtube.com/c/seovideoshow . And this past weekend, 5 months later, I hit 1000 subscribers! 🥳🎉 I've networked and met more people staying at home in the past few months than I have in the past few years at events. LOL My topic is so niche, but I love talking about SEO, and like @hannah_lontt said interviewing people in the SEO industry has made me a better SEO. I having a ton of fun and learning a lot at the same time

Disney. Food. Photography. WeStretch!
Honestly, I think I would create an eclectic mix of whatever I wanted to, instead of being confined to a single topic. I know that doesn't necessarily make you popular on youtube (or any social media for that matter), but I think the trap we've been falling into is allowing ourselves to become flat characters, if you know what I mean? Mine would have a variety of music performances, photography tutorials, food inspirations, stop motion animations and whatever else I thought was neat at the time! :D

I would choose sports overview in specific field i.e. Basketball and i would definitely choose Contribee to monetise my audience.

I would start a channel around things I want to improve/be better. Like a side project, or different things like a hobby (writing, building, crafting). It would help me to stay accountable + it would be 2 in 1: building and audience while practicing/doing the things I find valuable. I don't have a channel though, but I played with the idea in my head, lol.

Bad UX... like, people using apps and stuff, and having reality-tv like reactions... "Did Uber Eats just decline my voucher? Travis why you want me to starve boo" and such. We need a video archive of Bad UX design, so we never make those mistakes again as a species. Video shaming bad design is a start.

I am starting a Brand Account Channel on Youtube and I am putting a lot of "How to" videos. Perhaps if its a hobby channel, then it would be best to give out details on the topic you intend to be covering and best practices and perhaps how celebrities do it .. Just an idea ! Check it out here https://youtu.be/VNrVq4PT86g
