My Journey into the YouTube and Game Industries… Month 59

22 min readAug 2, 2023

Hi Guys

Here is the update for the last the month!

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

However in my new office we now have an inverter and battery pack. I should be able to get more work done with little downtime!!…

First of all, without all of you, I would not have reached the significant milestone of 500 subscribers last month.

I have just shared this post right now as I had not much time in the passed few days to do it…

Check out what I noted in the article’s later on in one of the sections.

So today’s excellent news is the achievement of a new milestone.

It’s wonderful to see that 600 valid public watch hours were reached today because it’s what I’ve been aiming for sometime now.

Therefore, I have changed my aim to 700 before the end of the month.

While it is still possible to accrue 100 valid public watch hours, I must put in the time to reach this objective.

Crossing fingers.

Here’s hoping I put in the time to make it happen…








05/07/23 — Comments:



I’ve just completed uploading every video from the Mad Max game.

I like to write up a review of this game:

Mad Max is an action-adventure video game based on the Mad Max franchise of the same name.

Developed by Avalanche studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, it was released for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One in 2015.

The 1st September 2015, this is the same day as Metal Gear Solid V

As it was release on the same day, Mad Max never got the attention it needed and deserved.

Mad Max is a game everyone should play.

Here is a review video from Jake Baldino

He explain the game in this video perfectly.

Here is a review on the Saint Row DLC: The Heist & The Hazardous.

The DLC consist of a major (minor) free update to Saints Row that includes a new area of the map with activities for all players.

The word minor used in this sentence is my interpretation of the DLC.

This update was very small, and very little to do in terms of gameplay.

You get a new hideout (A mansion).

We get a new area to explore. Its not big at all, not much happening in the area, new cars, new guns, new glitches.

I did have fun in the new area. (A little fun)

There is 3 new main missions in this DLC, but really not much…

Its playable and a little fun, but just to short…

Not much else in this DLC.

I have sent him the playlist of the V8. I hope he is happy with it!!!


Link to the V8 playlist:

This commenter really loves the V8!!

Every comment is always about it.

Its great to see someone really enjoying my content.







Reached and passed a milestone:

Now surpassed 450 subs, hit 451 subs a new milestone done.

Next 500 subscribers.



Longest comment and response from a single subscriber.


He finds my content to be enjoyable, and I’m glad he chose to watch it. I value this subscriber very much.

New milestone reached:

Now there are over 460 subscribers, which is fantastic.

The target is now 507 subscribers, which means 46 additional subscribers are required in order to meet that goal.

Valid public watch hours are 620, with another 80 to go till goal 700.

08/07/23 — New milestone:

The number of views has increased (to the lowest view count) to 16 during the past 48 hour period.

This growth has been fantastic so far!!

A crude remark:

Reads as follows:

“I’m not doing that. You ruined the clip by not just begging visually but also having the annoying clicking noise”

My reply:

“Hey, well I’m sorry about that!!… Thanks for the feedback.”

Well, it appears like this guy is having a truly horrible day.

15/07/23 — A new comment, but this one is on my community post.

This is the first time someone has ever commented on my community post, therefore today marks a new milestone!


This community post was referring to the article on medium, specifically My journey into Gaming industry… Business!! Day 57.

Here is a link to that article:

I enjoyed responding to this comment.

The comment reads as follows:

“Where’s this one supposed to go when you snap a picture of it? I don’t see it in the Collectibles app.”

My response:

“Hi, I saw your last comment…

My response was gonna be the same…

anyway if you have taken a snap of it try going into your Collectibles app.

It’s under medium

3rd from the bottom

please let me know if got it.

I will be eagerly waiting for your response.”

14:31 — Today’s milestone:

20 is now the lowest view count in a 48 hour period.

The hour is not up yet, I will update this later…

16:00 — update:

The channel is expanding, and the fact that there was a count of 31 as the lowest views in the past 48 hour period is encouraging. I hope to see more of this in the future.

This is a major accomplishment.

16:46 — I assisted my mother in launching a brand-new cooking channel today.

The channel is called RGS cooking.

Here is a link to it:

She wants to make one, so I’m assisting her and adding it to my account so that it would be simpler for her to manage.

She has since uploaded the first video onto it.

Here is a link:

She seems to be loving it so far; let’s hope she has the same success.

Truthfully, I know she will do better than me in this because its food…

For the commenter, it all worked out great for him:

Here is the Full Transcript:


“Where’s this one supposed to go when you snap a picture of it? I don’t see it in the Collectibles app.”

My reply:

“Hi I saw your last comment…

its under medium 3rd

from the bottom

please let me know if got it.

I will be eagerly waiting your response.”


“Hi! For some reason, I am able to continuously keep re-taking this particulars object’s shot (frame goes from red to green when centered) each time I restart the game or reload a save.

But the collectible landed on the collectibles app even so. It’s there.

Thank you so much for the video and your kind help! =)”

My reply:

“Hey cool Im so happy that it worked for you… I understand how it feels when the game glitches and want to get that 100% achievement and something like this happens… but in the case its all good.”

Here is the translation:

“Thank you very much for the video)))”

“Shorter minuses did not find a cool video”

Not to sure what he means by the 2nd comment

My reply:



Here is the translation:

“I put everything in a video, you need to be able to do it. beautiful”

“Just top done”

Although I am unsure of what he is discussing, I think they are excellent remarks.

No response; unsure of what to say.

Anyway, back to work for today’s new achievement:

Today’s 500 subscribe are half of the necessary 1000 subs.

A further achievement on TikTok:

110 followers (YEAH)

Here is a link to it, so you may visit and look it over:


21/07/23: Updated information on YouTube Studio:

My efforts have paid off! Having more content has helped my channel’s views increase by an additional 190%.

Although I’m not sure if this represents a milestone, the final Mad Max videos have now been uploaded. Mad Max has really helped with growing the channel…

I’m relieved to have finished this upload and game.

Someone who was trolling me appreciated my response and liked and subscribed to me.




23/07/23 — New milestone hit:

By the end of the month, the target of 507 subscribers has already been reached.

Normally, I would set a new goal for myself, but this time, I won’t be uploading for the entire next week.

I’ll be on vacation with my family.

Next Tuesday will be my last day of uploading, so I’ll attempt to reach 510 or even higher; if I can, that’ll be fantastic, but if not, that’ll be okay too.

I currently have 693 legitimate public watch hours, which means I should reach and surpass the second goal of 700 hours by the end of the month. I’ll have to update you on this later, when I have more information on it.

24/07/23 — New comments:


700 hours of valid public watch was achieved today.

Anything additional will be extra from now on because this is my main objective.

I was able to reach 100 hours in a single month thanks to my target of 700 hours, and all my hard work to achieve this goal…

This objective has been achieved and passed… (YEAH)

As you can see, I have already surpassed the 100-hour mark by 4 extra hours.

The number 104 (valid public watch hours) represents the total for the entire month so far, but there are still another 9 days to go. I hope that it does well, but not to the point that I can’t reach for next month’s goal.

I will be trying my best to put as much content as I can to get to these goals and pass them each month.

Each month must be better than the last, if not, then I’m not doing enough to grow the channel and it will ultimately fail.

Reached another milestone:

31/07/23 — Last day:

Being on vacation, not much happened during the past few days. (No Comments)

Started uploading again today, here are the status updates I made following my return from vacation.

Subs 514 so far; if I receive any more, I’ll update this.

The view count had decreased because I wasn’t uploading, but I’m glad to see that it didn’t decrease significantly and that it’s now stable.

18:33 —


01/08/23 — Well good morning to every one of you.

Ordinarily, I’d start publishing this article today.

However, because it takes two days to finalize the valid public watch hours, they have not yet been updated.

I’ll have to wait till I have the valid, finalized public watch hours. I will begin to upload this content once I get that.

Anyway, these are the current statistics.

So I lost 1 sub yesterday, and as the day wore on, I actually lost 2 subs and gained 1 back. Since I hadn’t uploaded in about a week, and since this is typically the case, I was aware that this might happen so no surprise there.

Anyway, I’ll keep you informed as things develop.

Views have increased again, but much more work must be done to return to my previous position.

There won’t be many updates on this because the subscribers and current public watch hour are more crucial than the view count.

The number of views is crucial at the beginning.

Where I am right now with this channel the number of subs and the public viewing hours are more significant.

The significance of additional factors may increase as the channel develops.

It will continue to change, but I know what I must concentrate my efforts on to achieve these goals.

The very last thing I need to do now…

I need to change this article name to…

To something that contains


Although the title of this Journey has seen major change thus far, the title itself has essentially remained the same.

My Journey into the GAMING Industry… Business! Day 59

To Maybe…

My Journey into the YouTube and game industries… Month 59

And switch the Day to Month.

As you have seen I now only upload these every Month and no longer in days

Additionally, I deleted the word “business” from the title.

This is from an earlier time…

As time goes on, I’ll alter the name to something that is hopefully better…



02/08/23 — New comment:

Another rude comment.


I will be posting this to Medium today.

I have the total amount of valid public watch hours.

I can now present it to you guys…

My total watch time for this month is 147 hours; I did not think it would get this high; I was mostly hoping for about 100 hours.

While I say this, I was hoping to hit 150 as it was not much further from 147.

Getting to 147 is much more than I had ever expected.

I need 333.33 per month in order to obtain the required valid public watch hours.

I need to work hard to reach this objective because I need an additional 186.33

I am unable to say what my goal should be for next month because I have not captured enough data on this.

Only from next month, once I have enough data on this, will I be able to give myself a real goal to hit.

The best I can give myself right now is 150 valid public watch hours and nothing more, and once I hit and pass this goal, I will try to give myself another goal.

I’ll set a goal of 155 if I pass the 150, so hopefully I can achieve that one.

Let’s see what happens next month!!!!

Its now 18:37 - I will be unable to submit this article because it is now too late. However, tomorrow, I will have more time to get this article out to you guys…

I still got a little more to do in the article before I can publish it… But surely tomorrow it will be done.

As you can see the total for the month of July 147 (valid watch hours).

July = 147

June = 83

147– 83 = 64 extra (better)

I reached my goal of 507 this month and exceeded it by 3 additional subs.

513 Subs

If all goes as planned, the objective for the following month will be 75 extra subs.

Goal subs 588 (I know for a fact it will be higher then this by the end of this month probably 590 or more but less then 600 subs as it stands now). However, if it does, this will need to be adjusted as the Channel Continues to ramp up, it will gain additional subs.

Working out the new goal for next month (with calculation).

72 subs this month

72 Subs divided by 31 days

2.4 * 31 days for August

Equals to 588

The goal for next month is 588 or more…

However there is a problem with this…

As the month goes on it should hopefully start to bring in more views and with that hopefully more subs…

Update: (31/07/23– 743 hours of “Valid Watch Time”) (157 extra “Valid Watch Time” since last month)

Update: The 1000 sub mark will be reached on January 21st (gained back 40 extra days) last estimate was March 10th. (This is using the info I have gained over this month, a better month will drop the projection… and a worse month increases it — last month was Great!!).

That amounts to 2.4 subscribers per day, but this will change over time. I have kept it on 2.4 subs a day for now even on this equation.

My end goal is to try to get to 1000 subs before year end!!

As for valid public watch hours:

So far the Goal is 893 valid public watch time for the end of August .

Lets see what happens…

I can’t give anymore info into this as I don’t have data to come up with a good enough goal.

For this Month:

This is what I managed to achieve:

I was able to hit the target of 507 and pass it by 6 extra.

I understand that this may seem like a lot to ask, but if you are enjoying my content, I’d really appreciate it if you subscribed to my channel and followed me.

New milestones hit…

Update On New YouTube Channel: RGS Gaming

Subs : 513 (+72)

Views : 332470 274746 (+57724) “YEAH”

This is from the 19/10/22 to the 02/08/23

So far this channel is growing very well…

Better than I had anticipated, but also more work is required than I had first believed. I have to work harder if I want to maintain the same momentum. But its stabilizing now.

But I have been able to start moving the ball in the right direction. And this ball is getting easier and smaller to move…

If I can keep this up the ball will start to move on its own which I hope will be soon…

“Anyway, do that and you’ll start seeing great follower growth. It’s true that a lot of those followers won’t interact with your stuff- but don’t think like it’s supposed to be everyone reading everything. That’s silly. Instead, think about it like advertising- they’re all now going to see your articles from time to time on their feed. That’s free advertising. If 10 people out of every 100 click, be that’s a 10% conversion rate. In advertising, 10% is pretty standard. Don’t think small- reach for 10,000+ followers.”
