Monetising your hobby: A personal perspective

A discussion of the pros and cons of monetizing our hobby on YouTube and my own personal choice regarding advertising revenue and creative control. I have touched on this subject before but now I explain in full the reasoning behind my decision not to monetize my channel. 

I hasten to add that this shouldn't be taken as a criticism of those who have gone down this route. Every wargamer on YouTube needs to make the decision that is best for them and their channel, and I would love to hear your views on this sometimes divisive subject.

  1. Lee, I enjoyed your thorough response on your whys and why nots to monetizing your blog/vlog/YouTube Channel. For me, a disadvantage to sticking advertising up on a blog is that I find such advertising distracting if not annoying. I am reluctant to annoy readers any more than they may already be. I know of a few blogs that I no longer regularly frequent due solely to annoyingly constant advertising. It's a shame really.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel Miniature Adventures TV
