A bit over six months ago, in June of 2012, I decided to be crazy and try being a content producer on YouTube by running a “Let’s Play” channel. For those who don’t know, a Let’s Play channel features video game footage, usually with commentary by the person playing. Pretty much every significant game ever made probably has at least one Let’s Play video on YouTube. There are many thousands of people running channels for Let’s Play and there’s more every day, so this is a very competitive market. So why did I decide to do it?
