One Million Views on My YouTube Channel

Earlier this week I discovered my YouTube channel passed the one million views mark.


Over a year ago I committed to the idea of sharing my knowledge & responding to community questions with videos. Your support has grown the channel from a party of one to nearly ten thousand subscribers. Due to the success of the YouTube channel I’ve had the opportunity to write for Photoshop User Magazine, create video content for Layers Magazine & PSD Tuts, speak at a number art & technology conferences, appear on TV, receive sponsor interest, and pursue new job opportunities.

That success would not be possible without your continued patronage.

Thank you.

A number of folks have asked, “What’s in store for 2012?”

I am working on a number of projects, which I hope to share in the upcoming months. “I Create Content” currently has one sponsor, onOne Software, who graciously provides software each month. They have even provided you my loyal readers a discount code; simply use “ajwood” for 10% off your purchase. I hope more sponsors will come on this year so I’ll have a nice goodie basket to share with you my loyal readers. I want to continue to expand the content of the show, not only increasing which products I teach, but also adding new show segments. Stay tuned for those announcements.

Growth of the show and its programming really depends on you. Please continue to Like the videos, but more importantly share them on Facebook & Google+, embed them on your blog, pass them along on Twitter. Encourage your friends & associates to subscribe to my YouTube channel. Checkout the playlists I’ve created, review some of your favorite tutorials, and find some new favorites.

I can’t wait to see what we create together during the next million views.

June 6 – Week Recap

Good morning everyone. Here’s a recap of this week’s shared content:

1. Ten More Things About Photoshop posted on TipSquirrel. Part of my Top Ten series, you can never have enough Photoshop tips.

2. Working with Nested Styles in InDesign posted on Layers Magazine. InDesign is definitely a “must know” app for designers, especially now in the era of ebooks & tablet computing.

3. Learning Digital Photography Podcast #59 posted on Canon Blogger. YES! It finally happened, I’m actually talking in real time LIVE with none other than Mr. Jason Anderson. I try to get serious, he makes me laugh, you won’t see any of it because it’s an audio podcast.

4. I’ve been helping Sonya Bowser with her children’s book “The Adventures of Zolie Z“. It’s been a fun project that I can share with my daughter.

5. I am VERY EXCITED to have written the featured Lightroom article in the June issue of Photoshop User magazine. I have to give credit to Mike Mackenzie whose editing expertise really makes my writing exemplary. It’s an honor to write for a magazine that I actually read each month and work with the outstanding folks at NAPP. Remember, as your NAPP Evangelist, you can use my name “ajwood” when you join NAPP to receive a free DVD & discount off your membership. NAPP has also been gracious enough to let me post a PDF of my article here are the website. Download A.J.’s Lightroom Article from PSU Magazine.

5. Changes to my YouTube channel. Starting next Monday, I’ll be posting videos three times a week on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. Tutorials will continue but future videos will include interviews, product/service reviews, and a few surprises for YOU my loyal viewers.

Well, that’s been my crazy week. Enjoy your weekend and I’ll catch you next week!
