I started my youtube channel so I could share T’ai-Chi videos that I thought might be helpful to like-minded people out there and to get a little wider exposure for my music than I could get in a small town in rural Oregon. I never had any notion of making any money from my channel. I just wanted to share my practice ideas and my art. Several years ago, when youtube invited me to monetize my videos, I was excited by the prospect of actually making a few bucks but since my channel was so small time, I didn’t think it would amount to much. And it didn’t. I think over the past 4 or 5 years, I’ve made to total of 3 or 4 hundred dollars. But I do not make very much money and every little bit helps, especially when it comes to making my albums, which although recorded on a shoestring, still don’t come close to paying for themselves. So while I had mixed feelings about subjecting my viewers to the ads, I monetized most of my videos and accepted those feelings, and revenue.

The only rules of this Hack Circle:
1. You’ve got to use your feet to keep the sack in the air and off the ground. No hands! (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
2. If you miss or otherwise screw up, you can’t say, “I’m Sorry.” (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
3. No serving to yourself. (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
4. No hotdogging. Meaning this is not about how many tricks you can do before the sack hits the ground, and it’s not about working obsessively on tricks. Tricks are fine but in general, we want to keep the hack going as a friendly group and keep everyone involved.
See you at Caldera rain or shine. The overpass provides shelter from the rain and once the circle gets going, you’ll be plenty warm regardless of the weather.
