KENICAMZ #146: What’s up friends! Well the daily vlogging has clearly slipped into oblivion haha, no worries I’m fine with that. My priorities right now have switched completely to baby mode and that’s ok. Kai has been dealing with silent reflux for the past week or so and that means way less sleep for mom and dad mwahaha! I mean I’m laughing now, only because we’ve had some really rough nights and some funny challenges to deal with and yet the adventure of becoming parents is absolutely amazing. So humbling, so raw and so enlightening daily. I mean anything you think you’ve prepared for or are ready for.. yeah blow that out the window. Some ways, some how you’re gonna get pressed and the sooner you accept that the easier and more rewarding it gets, in my newbie opinion lol.

So let’s talk about Steemit and STEEM POWER!! What an amazing and rapidly evolving love child of crypto-currency, social media, network marketing and online money making mash-up this platform already is! And we’re still only in beta so it’s just getting better and becoming an ever more refined and empowering user experience. I’m so excited for all my fellow digital nomad friends and families, all my off-grid nomads, all my communes and communities. Every sovereign heart that has woken up to the system with an urge to express themselves and take action to live free, I know the struggle has been real! Finally there’s more and more opportunities via our planetary nervous system to connect while generating an income to sustain our free lives.

I be-life that this is only the beginning of a new era of opportunities for every one to create liberty and freedom for themselves and their families. It’s here, the time is now and there are many more coming soon from the other crypto-currencies like Bitcoin and Etherium! Steemit is a social media blogging platform, that has the value and engagement of reddit-style upvoting and discussion. The rapidly growing community of contributors, with all manner of interests is very exciting for such a new site. What I’m saying about self empowerment, any one with a internet connection is now able to start blogging and earning without having to learn code, build a website or even buy into any digital marketing/learning networks that I’ve touted in the past. As well as the best thing is, it’s supported by a decentralized currency that is already growing in value and that means so much, on so many levels for the transition and liberation of the masses. To get us off of the roller-coaster ride of fiat paper money and the inflation/deflation, infinite debt slavery that comes with our sold out, media manipulated, politically polarized, pharmaceutical poisoned slave farms.

Okayyy, before I get carried away with my nwo freedom fighting rant, I’ve decided to really help promote the site and get more eyes on this opportunity. So from here on I’ll start writing content exclusively for over there, I’ll of course write some short blurb about the vlogs here still. That’s much better than the good ol’ cut n paste job that was simply not doing it justice. As well as more room for expansion I’m really excited that this comes at a time where my commitment to YouTube has be slacking a little. What with baby duties etc writing is much more suitable and less labor intensive for me than making videos. I’ve been wanting to express myself with written word for ages as many of you know and to tell our story with a little more detail and insight that often gets glossed over in the spoken flow.

So yeah, come check it out. I’m gonna be flexing my authoring mind a little and cover some of the key events and adventures from previous vlogs posted from our journey. Kinda like a fuller introduction to those in the Steemit community who haven’t a clue who I am lol. While also filling in some gaps for the regular vlog viewers. I hope you lot will in joy this new phase of the transition and I’ll look forward to getting to know those of you who join up too. Yes get free from those government infiltrated facist-book social media sites that horde all the ad-sales revenue and give you nothing but a big thumbs up LIKE.

Don’t forget, knowing better and thinking smarter is still not doing. To be the change you gotta do the thang! Go get your Stemmit account set up and start writing! Expressing yourself, share your truth and don’t forget to friend me while your at it lol. Here’s my page so far..


KENICAMZ #145: Trending this week was #YouTubePartyIsOver! My feed was full of tweets and videos from upset yootoobers venting about how the not so new “censorship” rules were destroying their earnings. For those with no idea what this is about, basically YouTube recently released a new algorithm that targets and demonetizes any videos that they deem not to be “advertiser friendly”.

In the past I’ve been deleted entirely from YouTube; twice. Sure it sucks when your freedom of expression is excluded, especially when executed by some faceless bot. Irretrievable passion project hours spent creating content that served over 2 million views, all deleted with one judgemental swoop. Every appeal rejected by their generic claim of “violating community guidelines” and back then it wasn’t even about monetization, I was life vlogging for fun.

Emotionally shook my uncensored consolation prize was entitled freedoms allow me to pay for my own video hosting LOL! So eventually we get over ourselves and crawl back to YouTube. Monetized or not most vloggers will find themselves asking why they post videos in the first place? What’s their original intent? Was it ever the money, nothing wrong with that if so. Or did we have some actual purpose or message that we want to share with the world? Personally I fell in love with the community; so here I am still uploading. I appreciate as a viewer how YouTube has entertained, empowered and educated me throughout my life. As a creator the unlimited reach, bandwidth and traffic to broadcast my soap box to the world is incredible! Ultimately I bow down and accept it’s their website, their rules. Of course I disagree with outright censorship, though has anyone’s freedom of speech actually been threatened here? Let’s be real, most of the same people complaining about YouTube money, while freely on YouTube are only “famous” because of YouTube.

I feel YouTube offers everyone a fair deal, the chance to get published by a global brand and a built in partnership with Google Adsense. Only one of the largest and most integrated affiliate networks on the internet. Many dream of building successful channels, quitting their slave jobs and become full-time YouTubers. Don’t let that vulgar little potty mouth or your irresistible sexually explicit nature ruin the fun for their family viewers LOL. So the terms of service aren’t perfect for everyone, definitely not me. Sulking won’t get us any further, they’ve removed “sensitive” content for years. Everyone complains now but how about when all the 9/11 news footage disappeared proving how lamestream media is implicitly part of an inside job? If you want to make money with YouTube treat it like the corporate business whore that it is. Also if you’re serious about internet pimpin’ I suggest diversifying. Deploy multiple income streams to support you while you nurse a global takeover. YouTube is definitely not the get rich quick plan. Why rely on YouTube to be your only source of income.. or truth, freedom, fairness, ethics, morals, etc.

Improvise, adapt and overcome; that’s what I say. I remember bitching back when good ol’ Chad and Steve sold us to Google. I knew the place would become overtly commercial and our quirky little vlogging community would be disbanded. Turns out the explosion of google search engine rankings transformed those same awkward bedroom bloggers into internet celebrities! I missed that boat while I was making a stand for our independent artistic rights bah. If reaching a lot of people is your goal then be on YouTube. Perhaps these strictly enforced ToS will somehow increase our exposure to an even wider audience? So what they keep changing the rules, be resilient and play their game to your best ability. Also appreciate a world where you’re able to make money posting homemade videos. There’s still people who don’t have enough internet to even buffer them in HD.

If you still find yourself grumbling about YouTube selling out, perhaps it’s time to consider new alternatives? Watchmybit is one of the most exciting game changers that I’ve spoken about recently and it’s bringing crypto-currency to the masses in a huge way. Combining a free video hosting service with a Bitcoin enabled pay-per-view model. While you wait for your monthly YouTube check, simply link your WMB videos with your own and any number of cast/crew/collaborators bitcoin wallets (if you don’t have one yet click here) and start receiving payments directly to your wallet every day for every single view.

There is so much growth and potential with the latest block-chain applications, especially for payment processing and online entertainment. There’s even solutions emerging that would completely transform and revive the adult industry from it’s impeding monopolized self-destruction. So many of my innocently unaware friends cling to that sinking ship and it’s only sinking faster the longer they hang on to outdated business models. Meanwhile bitcoin and websites like WatchMyBit stride forwards offering real-time solutions to anyone looking to monetize video content in the free world.
