At the end of this week i'll be on holiday and boy do i need a break! My wife and i are taking our 1 year old son Calum on holiday for a week staying in a luxury lodge at Lochgoilhead on the West Coast of Scotland. The site has swimming pool, restaurant, bar and amazing scenery so i'll spend my week relaxing. Outside of airsoft i'm currently a driving instructor although if YouTube pays off i'll be more than happy to retire early. I have been invited to join a competition called "YouTube NextUp" which is for aspiring YouTube Partners with less than 50,000 subscribers who want to take their channel to the next level. There is a 20,000 Euro cash prize, all expenses paid 3 day film-makers camp in London and lots of promotion from YouTube. I'd be daft not to enter!! All i need to do is make a video entry saying why i want to take part and send them a written letter stating what i would spend the money on.
With 20,000 Euros i could buy a fantastic camera, top notch computer and software, turn my small office into a studio and travel around the U.K filming videos at sites throughout Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. I think the wife would also appreciate a nice warm holiday so who knows; airsoft in Greece or Crete would be good fun eh!? It would be a dream come true scenario for me and fantastic viewing for my subscribers. The competition is for European Partners only so that means i must have something like a 1 in 10,000 chance of winning worst case odds but i think there will be far less European Partners than that. Certainly better odds than the lottery.
