Sorry. The add you insert into the middle of your video for the Ridge Wallet is a huge turnoff for me. I used to enjoy your videos. Now I know they are just self serving, and I will no longer watch them.
Ok, so think about this: I drove from pittsburgh to Bethlehem and back (4 hours there , 5 hours home due to traffic). Thats 9 hours. 223 miles one way x2 = 450 miles, plus I paid turnpike tolls, and obviously took a day off of work. I edited hours and hours more. Now so you can imagine all the expense it was for me to create this video (oh, 29.95 a month for premiere pro editing). So after google takes half my ad revenue, I made $15. on this video. And you got to see the only drone footage of this place for free, yes, free, and you complained that you had to fast forward through 60 seconds of an ad where I save you another 40% off a phenomenal product I use everyday. Does this say something about you or me?Sorry. The add you insert into the middle of your video for the Ridge Wallet is a huge turnoff for me. I used to enjoy your videos.

I have a 15 commercial contract with ridge through this year but will probably make 50 videos a year, so it's not every video. Honestly, what people say they like about my videos is that they can feel my enthusiasm. If you watched a lot of my videos, I add humor. I used to be a wedding DJ and when I retired, I missed making people laugh, so I do it on my vids. Also, I kinda get child like excitement from seeing new things with the drone, so I get excited to show what I discovered too. I'll never be rich, started at $0 8 years ago after the divorce, and now I'll soon have a kid in college. Feels like everyday is a struggle to break even. Noteriety? I flew a thousand miles and spent a thousand dollars to attend a YouTube meet and greet in Denver on for these assholes to want to make fun of my height before I even landed.It says something about me. I'm unapologetic about it, though. I meant no insult, just wanted you to know that I'm, personally, not in favor of people posting on forums just to further their own gain. I love your videos, but If you're just out to make money or for the notoriety, then I'm out.
Also, if you're posting here, trying to market your videos, paying for a premium membership would be a nice way to support the forums.
