Monetizing Youtube: 3 Steps Tutorial

Creating videos is really fun! And it’s cooler if there will be perks that you can get from Youtube. Introducing, Youtube Monetization feature! Monetizing in this website is not really new, but for those who wants to devote themselves to go for a long term source of income or should I say, Investment, this could be one of your choices. Here’s an easy step by step method on how to activate your Monetization feature. But before that, you have to log in to your Youtube account. If you have none, sign up (or use your Gmail account for this)!

Step 1: Go to Youtube Stetings. It can be seen when you click your icon/profile photo on the top right corner.

Step 2: Click Monetize videos

You can see the Monetization on the left side. Click that, and you will see this. Click that blue button saying “Monetize videos”.

Image

Step 3: Click Monetize

When you click the monetize video, this will appear. As you can see, the last part is unchecked because my videos aren’t containing paid products. You can now click Monetize.

Image

And that’s it! You can now start monetizing your videos. Look at the green dollar icon. It means that it is now monetized. If you see a question mark, it means that your video is being reviewed by Youtube.

If you want to see your performance or how much your earnings, you can go to analytics (located at the left side) and you’ll see your estimated earnings.

Some tips before you switch your game on, be careful on your video contents. YT do not tolerate videos containing third parties or materials which is not owned by you. Make sure that you own the videos to avoid piracy. We don’t want to pirate our videos too, don’t we? And make sure that you have good standing!

So have fun and I hope you learned from this easy tutorials. 🙂

Stay tuned for more online tutorials.

Outfit as a weapon? “Kill la Kill” Anime Series

Image

Have you watched Kill la Kill? I really find this anime very unique and worth watching. Aside from the Daimos or Lupin III-like illustration, I must say that if you are looking for an out-of-the-box anime, then you should watch it. It was aired last October 2013.

Usually, anime character’s weapon are from super saiyan transformation, rose whips, bat bombs and many more…I never thought that a uniform or an outfit can serve as a weapon too. In Kill la Kill anime, outfits are very important. In fact, they value it so much that students rather die fighting for their suits than to have no uniform. That’s where they get the extraordinary powers.

Speaking of which, it’s really funny how outfit transformation are presented. Think Sailormoon’s transformation, but in a cool and speed up version. With additional wind force upward, you can see that Ryuko’s (protagonist) breasts are dancing upward too. lol. I think they mocked Sailormoon on that.

Image

I also noticed that they sort of mock hentai animes through outfits. Notice that Gamagoori’s (one of the Elite Four) strength is through absorbing attacks from his opponents then he’ll return it double the strike. It portrayed a masochist type from hentai. But that’s not all, his outfit is filled with bandages that looked like a mummy. Beneath that, you could see him strangled with more chains and a ball with ropes wrapped in his mouth. Just like what you see in a bondage hentai.

Image

And don’t forget Aikuru and the “Nudist Beach” rebels. That’s really humorous for me because it actually makes sense that if the antagonist uses clothes against men, then protagonist is on the non-clothing side which named as Nudist Beach. They are actually naked but of course they won’t let it be seen on the screen. Its really funny to see how Aikuro explains an important information. Spotlights will appear out-of-nowhere while he strikes a supermodel pause. Then his dress is slowly moving down until he gets undressed.

Anyhow, I just love how they show the relationship between Ryuko and Senketsu ( Ryuko’s sailor outfit who talks). I see it as a marriage commitment [though they are just friends] because the power that Ryuko uses is a combination of Senketsu and hers. That’s how it differs from all outfits that was created. They are one, unlike from other outfits, Goku uniforms were designed just for adding extra powers to them. If you have no uniform, you are nothing. But for Ryuko, her outfit becomes stronger because of her strong fighting spirit. I find it really romantic and sweet. Especially when they talk to each other, it seems like they are husband and wife or parent and child. They protect each other and they join together in their worsts and bests.

Image

It was really cool and amazing to think that an outfit will be very valuable to people in the story. In fact, the story revolves around clothing as weapon and most powerful tool than money [and the mystery of finding who kills Ryuko’s father, whom also stole her Scissor blade’s other half]. I bet some fashion designers or anyone whose interested in clothing or fashion would like this anime. I give this five stars!

I will write more of insights and reviews on my next post. But before I leave, I would like to ask a question. If you would choose an outfit or uniform as a weapon, what would it be?

New Chapter of Life

It’s been a long time since I wrote here…well, good thing is, I’m back again!

2013 was really a tough year for us as a new family and new married couple. We encountered rocky roads, great challenges in life and it is too many to mention those hardships that we experience. I say that a married life is either heaven or hell on Earth. lol.

But despite of those challenges and problems, we held on to each other. 

As we enter the new chapter of our life, we celebrated at the rooftop. Swimming on a kid’s pool windy late afternoon. A very colorful afternoon reminds me of my childhood. This is far better than a five star resort. Priceless. Simple yet full of happiness and Grace. 🙂Image

Spicy Siesta Affogato

affogato

Late afternoon. Working and feeling sleepy. I wanted to take a siesta but we (husband and I) have to finish our work so I took a little coffee break. It was too hot so I decided to make an iced coffee instead.

I made an experimental kind of Affogato. [An affogato is a coffee-based beverage. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso.]

I  call this “Spicy Siesta Affogato”. A choco ice cream coffee with a surprise taste of spicy nuts.

Here are the ingredients:

ice cream

Ice cream cones (it melted from the sun heat while I rushed at home). I separated the cones here.

coffee ice

Brewed coffee

Ice (tubes, cubes, or crushed)

ing

Wafer stick. I used Stick-O.

mallows

Small marshmallows

nuts

Crushed spicy peanuts. I prefer spicy flavored Sugo Peanuts

Procedure:

>>> Add ¼ cup of brewed coffee (warm or cold) in a glass

>>> Add enough ice

>>> Add ice cream

>>> Sprinkle mallows and peanuts on top

>>> Add wafer sticks for decoration

>>> Enjoy!

*I made a small version for my baby too! I just replaced coffee into milk.

Homemade S’mores

 

smores 2

As an artist, it is very hard for me to buy artistic items (lamps, shoes, paintings, etc…) which I know how to make one. Even on desserts. So I ended up making a home made s’mores. I apologize for my bad plating (this is my worse field= cooking) for I didn’t study cooking lessons.

 

Here are the ingredients:

Graham crackers

Marshmallows

Nutella or Crumpy

 

Procedure: (Please bear with my self-taught process)

 

>>> Spread Nutella on the crackers (one side only)

>>> Put the first layer of the crackers on a container (find a size that will fit your creation. Mine was too large)

>>> Toast the Marshmallow on the stove or oven toaster (or you can toast the mallows together with the crackers)

>>> Put the toasted mallows above the crackers evenly

>>> Add the second layer of crackers

>>> Repeat it until reached the desired layer

>>> Decorate your s’mores

This is the procedure that I did and as you can see, I failed to make a presentable cake! Lol

 

Though it looks not that good, I’m still happy to see my husband enjoying and munching my art work. See you on the next post!

Growing up

Image

Baby on her first months…she’s so tiny and chubby.

Image

Now, look at her now…still beautiful and innocent. She’s really growing fast. I just want to keep this memory in the virtual world so that when she grows up, she’ll see how beautiful she is.

Before, she likes sleeping and drink her milk…but now…do you know what she likes? Makeup. *scratching head* lol.
