I live in South Africa and there is a problem with the electricity provider (ESKOM)!!

So since it's so late in the day, I will just start with the learning course!!

18/07/22 — Started the day off by sharing links for YouTube on Reddit, but I had noticed yesterday that the sub reddit, I had shared to was doing really well on views, but the content was not received well by that community, so I shared a new video that is only about 5 second long and…more on

I hope to get a good response back from them, and that it can help make better videos… anyway I will let u guys know what happens (there's no response on that video and from the community)

And that’s it for reddit today I wont share any more as I want to be able to see the feedback on this sub reddit. If I share to many subs on reddit I could miss judge the feedback I will be getting from that sub reddit!!
