Just recently finished an interview with Wikitubia saying how I want to do wavetro full-time after I finish college without resorting to YouTube ad revenue.
Not a week goes by and I've just been offered a deal with the devil.
If I take the offer, I can secure a stronger chance at the video-making dream, but at the expense of being another enabler of giant video companies controlling the web. If I don't take the offer, I'll have more integrity, but at the cost of a slimmer chance of ever getting the dream.
I know you guys don't give a shit about YouTube, but what do you think I should do?
Thanks for the feedback guys. I looked into YouTube ads more and realized I can't really run anything shorter than 15 seconds without putting the annoying Skip Ads button. This person also made a great point that people binging my videos would be irritated by the ads since everything is 1-2 minutes apiece.
So I'm casting the ring into the fire and looking into sites like Patreon. (I'll be running polls on my Twitter and YouTube soon asking some questions about that too if you're interested.)
