Learning about different Video editing applications - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

This Tuesday, here at Techie Youth, I spend my day learning about the different software I can use for video editing. I started the day by getting introduced to the big three applications in video editing, Adobe Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve Studio, and Final Cut Pro (Mac only). Then, I proceeded by learning in-depth about all three by watching the crash course tutorial videos explaining how each of them works. I would say my favorite is DaVinci Resolve Studio because of its great color-grading feature and how it is a one-time payment, not a subscription-based application like Adobe Premiere Pro. After learning about the big three, I went on to study how there are great video editors that people can use for free, like VSDC and Lightworks. After this, I went to see crash courses and in-depth tutorial videos of other video editing software applications. For example, I studied the crash course videos for Hitfilm, Shotcut, and VSDC and watched the in-depth tutorials for Shortcut and VSDC. Overall, today I learned a lot about how different video editing applications function. The good thing is that many of them have similar features and work about the same, but with some influential differences that make each application special.

Continuing learning about Social Network community pages - I learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today, I continued my studies about Social Network community pages by learning how to use other platforms to build them. This wednesday I was focused on learning about TikTok, WeChat, and Facebook (meta). First, I started with TikTok learning how popular it has become in such a short amount of time, how there seem to be some privacy concerns with the Chinese government, and I learned some ways to attack more followers. For example, by having engaging content by posting high-quality videos and optimizing my profile to be more unique and creative to leave a longer-lasting impression on people. Then, after learning more about TikTok, like how to make my profile profitable, I moved on to learn about the do everything application that is WeChat. Sadly, this app has even more privacy concerns than TikTok. WeChat is an incredibly versatile app used by more than one billion people monthly that can do almost everything like messaging, video calls, online payments, micro-blogging, and even more, but because of its security concerns, I don't think I will ever use this app unless I travel to China in the future. Lastly comes the biggest name in social media Facebook, now known as Meta. Today, I learned how to create a profitable Facebook group about a niche and how one of the best ways to make money through it is just like making money via Instagram by doing Affiliate Marking with companies such as eBay, Rakuten Marketing, and Amazon associates.

A Simple Man’s Guide to Basic Music Theory for Producers - I learned this at Techie Youth Today!

Today, while proceeding to find out about music creation, there was this article that sounded vital to me in understanding it. It discusses the Music Hypothesis that makers ought to be aware of. In view of that, this is what I got from it, which is, that the music hypothesis is something that electronic music makers see as trying. Anyway troublesome it is, you actually can become familiar with some things about it assuming you focus on it. Having a feeling of music hypothesis preparation is significant, as I expressed before in light of the fact that later on, it will make you a more robust music maker overall. This is because, in such a case that you gain proficiency with the music hypothesis, you are more likely as a music maker to concoct new special material without questioning your own capacity. This is essentially similar to a ball player, the more you train yourself to make a three-point effort, the more probable you are to have the option to constantly hit it. In any case, the fundamentals of this hypothesis with a piano are the utilization of White Keys, Dark Keys, Stretches, Significant Scales, Minor Scopes, and so forth. It is a ton, taking into account that this hypothesis is extremely unique, and is the primary justification for why many find it hard to learn. Utilizing White Keys, are the keys on your console that play "normal" notes, which are C, D, E, F, G, A, and B, which are the notes on a piano. There is likewise, the Dark Keys, that attention on playing sharp and level notes, which fundamentally opens up the likelihood to write in extra keys other than C major and minor. There are likewise the major and Minor scopes, where the significant scales play all the more light tones of music that can have a close-to-home inclination, while the minor scopes play hazier tonnes of music that have a melancholic inclination. I'm learning a touch of this, in any case, it is still very befuddling to me, and I can see the reason why it is truly challenging for some to learn. I'm not exceptionally keen on a music vocation, however, this was a decent thing to find out about, as I never realize that music had some sort of hypothesis that includes it. I will keep on continuing to find out about it a little by little.

The Beginner’s Guide To Creating Music On Your Computer - I learned this at Techie Youth Today!

Today, I have started to learn something new, and that is the idea of producing music. I came across this article today, which is a beginner's guide on how to create music with the use of my computer. To get started with this, you would need a DAW(digital audio workstation), MIDI controller, audio interface, and mixing equipment. The DAW is a software program that runs on a computer to allow a person to record, edit and produce audio files. Some software is GarageBand, Pro Tools First, and Ableton Live Lite. Then there is the MIDI Controller which uses software to control digital instruments but does not produce the sound, it can be seen as a transmitter between your electronic instruments and DAW to communicate with each other. So, if you are trying to make music, this would be something that would be much of assistance to you in creating it. There is the audio interface that I mentioned before, where if you want to record an instrument, you would need one of these guys to do just the job. This will provide a link from your computer to any external hardware which can be your instruments that are electronic. Finally, there is the mixing equipment, where which is a must-have because of the importance of how it makes the quality of the music to be appealing. This will just make the melody of the music with other sounds come together to bring harmony to them together. This was very interesting to learn about and I will continue tomorrow!

The ultimate creators guide to membership websites - I learned this at Techie Youth Today!

Today, upon finishing up learning about Niche websites, I came across an interesting article that I wanted to talk about today in my blog. This article talks about creating a membership, that you will incorporate into your own website, which can be used for sharing your content with a preferred audience that is willing to pay for your content. The benefits of having such a website are quite good because of the fact the revenue that you collect is stable, meaning that it is sustainable and you are able to predict it over time. Also, you are in control of everything that occurs, so you don't have to worry about others messing things up for you. And the last two things are that you don't need a very large audience because you generate cash flow every month from someone else who is paying for your content. Secondly, you will build great relationships with your members and be able to expand your network with others, which can help you grow as a person. In order to get this done, you need to find the category of niches that you fit in, which can be fitness, business, cooking, etc. After that, you will need to find a platform to create your website, and the process of charging your members every month; can be done with research of many different tools online. Then, you would figure out different pricing ranges of membership access that members can have based upon the content that they will receive once they sign up. But of course, before having these things, you must have an audience, and you can do so by using social media, having others promote your membership, etc. After all that is done, you will grow over time. This was interesting to learn about and was very informative.

How to Sell Online Courses from Your Own Website - I learned this at Techie Youth Today!

Today, I am still learning about Niche websites, but today, I came across something that was interesting. It was how to sell online courses on my own developed website, which in turn can produce an effective amount of profits. The question most people may ask is, why would you want to sell an online course? The answer to that question is quite simple, really, it is because, as the years go on, more and more students are tended to go on online education rather than the typical classroom. The online learning industry is sufficient, as it is growing at an exponential rate. To start off, you would simply need to find a profitable topic that you would like your course to be centered around. There are many influencers in the world today that sell courses on fitness, real estate, marketing, etc. So, find something that you have quite some experience with and have expertise in. After finding what you want your topic to be around and making the other components like publishing the content and creating any other things that would seem helpful, you would then need to find an engaged audience that would be interested and willing to pay for your courses. You can do this by promoting your course on social media, or even having others, with a great network promote your course to others to drive traffic. Once all this is set and done, you will have to give the processing time and soon enough, you will have an engaged audience to purchase your course online.

I could invest my money into many different assets that have a variety of risk and reward levels, like bonds and stocks. Stocks, a piece of a company, maybe one of the best ways to invest my money, but it does bring the possibility of losing it, while bonds are a secure way to make returns by buying government bonds or debt. In addition, there are many other assets I can invest in some of them are real estate, a classic way to build long-term wealth in a family, cryptocurrencies, ETFs, and index funds. Furthermore, I also learn that before one starts investing one needs to first pay off their high-interest debt. One way people can do this is by using the avalanche method, but there are also less extreme ways.

Today I continued my study of leadership as well. I learned about how one needs to be hyper-productive and ABG or always be growing. Furthermore, leaders need to be able to keep their employees happy; one needs to learn what will make their employees content and give it to them appropriately. Leaders also need to know how to communicate and find people they want to connect with to grow their business, form partnerships, etc. Overall, it was a great day of learning today at Techie Youth.

Improving my quality of life and how to be a leader - l learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today on the first day of SYEP 2022, I learned many things at Techie Youth.

First, I want to talk about the lessons on being a leader. Becoming a leader is about learning leadership, planning, staying calm, never panicking under pressure, etc. Furthermore, to be a leader one needs to have the power of speech to be able to communicate his ideas and plan of action, to be able to pursue others to follow their plan. One also needs to be hygienic and learn to be well dressed for important situations. There is still much more that revolts around leadership, a skill that only some people naturally have in this world, but one we all need to become successful in life.

Next will be improving my quality of life, learning the importance of mental and physical health is a very important life skill, especially in today's world where it seems that people grow weaker by the day both in terms of mental toughness and physical health. Something that I appreciate shown to me was the TedTalk on how to create happiness and not try to find it, as it always seems that creating to find happiness leads to the opposite.

In addition to all these great lessons. Today I also learned how to be a digital nomad and find online jobs that will make me money, like becoming an online graphic designer.
