Help Me Reach 100,000 YouTube Subscribers!

by Jeremy Carden

To everyone who has supported me ever since my days blogging on WordPress, I cannot thank you enough for helping me along my journey. The transition to YouTube a couple of years ago has reached a level that I never expected to achieve after such a short amount of time.

In this post, I just want to express my gratitude to my subscribers and followers because I could not have made it this far without you. I will be going over some of the numbers from 2018, and how each of my social media platforms have grown. Some people might find figures and numbers a bit boring, but I could not be more excited to share my success with you! This will allow you to see that each video that you watch and online post that you LIKE and SHARE makes a difference!

October 2017 was when I left my full-time job at a call center in order to focus on my YouTube channel for a living. The Haves and the Have Nots was a show that I loved with a passion, and my channel was focused on reviewing the series.

With the whole mess involving Logan Paul posting the body of a suicide victim online, YouTube was faced with what was called the “Ad-pocalypse.” Content creators on YouTube were dealing with very strict rules on videos because nearly everything was being held for review before advertisements could be added. This really slowed down my income for the first few months of 2018.

However, things started to get back on track sometime in April. One reason for my increase in success is because of TubeBuddy. It’s is a free program for YouTubers to utilize in order to keep track of the progress of their channel. This amazing program sent me a video earlier today that broke down my channel’s growth last year. Below are the numbers:

As you can see, there was a massive increase in the number of videos that I posted. With more time to create, I can record and upload videos at a much faster rate. Will I have an even greater number of uploads in 2019? I would like to focus more on quality over quantity, but I must report on news that is dropped into my lap for fans to stay informed. Also, the increase in views is an extension of the videos that I post. If possible, I hope the channel will hit 20 million views before the end of the year.

Finally, I want to talk about the massive jump in subscribers! If you have been watching my videos or following my Instagram account, you know that 100k is my long-term goal! If the channel continues the momentum, I have no doubt that it will hit that magic number before 2020. My hope is that I hit that milestone before I turn 28 on August 29th.

Now, here are the Top 3 videos from 2018:

If the storyline for Season 6 is as jam-packed as Season 5, I have no doubt that there will be a video or two to hit over 200,000 views!

With the channel currently over 58,000 subscribers, I have hope that it can hit 70,000 before the end of March. It really depends on how many people tune-in for the season premiere on Tuesday, January 8th.

What can you do to help?

Honestly, it is just a simple matter of sharing my channel around to other fans of The Haves and the Have Nots. The series is still the #1 show on OWN! That means there are millions of people who watch the show. However, not all of those fans are aware of my YouTube channel.

Once the channel hits 100k subscribers, I am certain that it will continue to grow at an even higher rather. Currently, my channel is at the Bronze level with Youtube. This is a level for channels with 10,000-100,000 subscribers. After reaching over 100k, my channel will be at the Silver and Up level. This means YouTube will make my content even more visible during searches.

As badly as I want to reach that level, I wanted to take a moment to appreciate how far my channel has come since 2017. Once again, I cannot express the amount of gratitude to each one of you for your support.

Episode Review: Veronica’s House | Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots

By Jeremy Carden

Well folks, The Haves and the Have Nots has finally returned to OWN! I have to say that I am pleased that the show is back such after a short break.

Screenshot_95

In my opinion, the episode that dropped on May 1st was the best episode of Season 5! Honestly, the overall pacing and story lines of the episode worked for me. True, the first 20 minutes did seem a bit stretched out and slow. Did anyone else get Acrimony vibes during the opening scene with Veronica claiming that David is in HER house with a whore?

Screenshot_75

However, things took a turn in the right direction when Veronica and Justin met in the hallway of the jail. For me, the episode just really started to take its foot off the break.

Of course, how could I not talk about the cliffhanger between Wyatt and his parents! Everyone is talking about that backhand the he gave Katheryn and the wine bottle that was slammed on the back of Jim’s head.

If you want all my thoughts on the episode, I urge you to check out my video below:

Trust and believe that I have a lot to talk about. This is the best time to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you have not done so already.

We will have new episodes of the show for the next 3 months, and I could not be more excited about it! There is so much ground to cover over the next 11 Tuesdays.

Screenshot_52

My channel has just hit over 25,000 subscribers, but there is still room for plenty of HAHN fans to jump abroad!

Please share the video around and tell other fans to join the channel!

If this episode was an indication of what is to come for the rest of the season, I feel that we are in for one heck of a ride.

Screenshot_55

Overall, I give “Veronica’s House” a 9/10. It was easily better than the first 10 episodes that we got during the beginning of 2018. For me, the first portion of the episode moving a bit slow was really the only thing holding it back from a perfect score.

Next week’s episode looks intriguing as well! If you want to see my trailer breakdown video for “In His Eyes” then you need to click on the video below ASAP:

The Best Tyler Perry Youtube Channel!

By Jeremy Carden

This is a special post dedicated to ALL of “The Haves and the Have Nots” fans that have followed my blog since I got started way back in Season 1 of the show! I really want to make sure that everyone knows about my Youtube channel that is now my outlet for getting my thoughts out there on everything HAHN related.

Screenshot_58

My channel is called “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Review.” On the channel, I do what I used to with my blog. I simply talk about the episodes, theories, character breakdowns and other things focused on the show. Not to mention, I also talk about If Loving You Is Wrong, The Payne’s, Tyler Perry movies/plays along with anything in the works within the walls of Tyler Perry Studios.

Last October, I quit my full-time job at the call center to become a full-time Youtuber. For some reason, the channel suddenly exploded with 1000s of new subscribers around last June. The money that I was making via advertisements was enough for me to pay my bills. With this new source of income, I was blessed to dedicate all of my time towards making videos.

Screenshot_21

Currently, the channel has about 450 videos! This is no joke at all because I have a lot to say about The Haves and the Have Nots.

If you have been following my blog since I got started, you know for a fact that the length of the blogs were pretty long. That is because I leave no stone unturned whenever I talk about a possible theory regarding the show.

Now, imagine that in video form meaning you do not have to read a blog that was about 10 miles long!

You also get the benefit of listening to my smooth voice while thinking about whether or not you agree with what I am saying.

e0d3b1cbeab079b5647a690bacaaa41e

Making videos has proven to be a much faster way of getting my thoughts out there. This means you are the ones who win because you get a video to listen as you are doing other things instead of being forced to read a blog while placing everything else on hold.

At this point, the channel is over 17,500+ subscribers! We are knocking on the door of 18,000 at this rate. I do not take any of this success for granted because around this time last year, I barely had 600 subscribers. It is nothing short of a blessing that the channel has grown nearly 30 times in size since then.

Veronica-and-Jeffrey-960x483

What is the point of this blog? Aside from making sure everyone knows where to go if they want my insight on all things HAHN, I need to make a request. Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with money.

The goal for my channel is to reach 100,000+ subscribers.

Let me write that again in case you missed it…

THE GOAL FOR MY CHANNEL IS TO REACH 100,000+ SUBSCRIBERS! 

Jim-and-Kathryn

I know that might seem crazy, but I believe we can make it happen. How? We are talking about a hit show on Tuesday nights. A show that was Tyler Perry’s first step into a direction outside of the Madea dress and wig. A show that was not a sitcom with a laugh track behind every line of dialogue. A show that was telling stories that had compelling characters bringing drama into our living rooms every Tuesday night.

This WordPress blog that I started after I was inspired to share my theories with like-minded HAHN addicts has been viewed more than 600,000+ times. Keep in mind, I spent over three years working on this blog without a single cent to show for it. However, a good friend pointed me in the direction of Youtube to widen my audience.

Screenshot_31

My channel has over 3,375,856 views! This is just a testament to how hard work, faith and determination cannot go without being rewarded. At first glance, it might seem like I am throwing out numbers just to boast or sound impressive. I want to stress that it NOT the reason behind this post.

If anything, this is a huge thank you to everyone that has been with me since Day 1 reading my theory blogs that were sometimes right on the money (Candace not being killed by the Malones) and other times off target (Amanda being Celine’s daughter) from what the actual show revealed to us later on down the line.

One of the main reasons I would like to hit over 100,000 subscribers is because channels that hit that milestone are given a special plaque.

maxresdefault (15)

I would love to receive one in the mail that reads: “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Review: Congratulations For Surpassing 100,000 Subscribers!

For those of you that have made it this far into the blog, you might be thinking about how you could help me make this dream a reality. If so, the answer is actually pretty simple. All it takes is for you to subscribe to my channel if you have not done so already. You can also share the videos that you like or think are good predictions about the plot. These little things will get my channel out there to those who do not already know about it.

The biggest video on the channel is about the Ice Queen herself! It was my first video to surpass 200,000 views. The video had to do with whether or not she survived the car accident at the end of last season.

Turns out she survived after all, but that cliffhanger had everyone guessing what was going to happen next! Sadly, the accident was resolved a bit too quickly for my taste, but that is besides the point. If this video could surpass 200,000 views in less than 3 months then I know it is possible for this channel to reach 100,000+ subscribers in the near future!

My promise to all of my followers is to provide quality videos. Aside from videos where only my thoughts are discussed, I also do live streams where some fans call me on Google Hangouts. It really gives the channel a radio-like vibe because callers talk with me about all things HAHN.

I guess those three years in the call center paid off because it makes transitioning over to this Youtube platform a lot easier. That just goes to show God does not put you into an arena without some hidden purpose behind it.

If Michael Jackson did not believe in his vision to create the biggest selling album of all time, Thriller would not have been released. The King of Pop believed in his vision and Thriller still stands at the top of the mountain even after his passing. Now, I know I need to believe in myself when it comes to this channel.

Jesus feed the multiple with two fish and five loaves of bread. He will make a way! I am a very independent person, but I have been humbled by this channel. It has shown me that my posts, videos, etc. are not just about me. They are my thoughts, but everyone who comments on them with their perspective keeps the conversion going. In most of my videos, I mention that the comment section is just an extension of my video. The video is the first domino knocking over the next one and there have been some very good conversations on my posts and videos.

Screenshot_202

That is why I am reaching out to everyone out there using every social media platform that I have! I urge you to subscribe, share my channel on your own social media outlets to ensure everyone knows about it.

Aside from hitting my goal of 100,000 subscribers, I want to increase this HAHN family so everyone has a chance to have their voice heard in an outlet with like-minded addicts of this show!

maxresdefault (4)

Sadly, the show will be ending in 2020 because that is when Tyler Perry’s contract with OWN will official come to an end. We will have to say goodbye to HAHN and If Loving You Is Wrong. However, that does not mean these shows will not continue on another network if the fans make enough noise. Trust me, I have no doubt in my mind that all of us together can help the show stay alive.

Remember that the fans were the reason that The Payne’s was brought back from a five year hiatus after that House of Payne cliffhanger.

That is why I do not take my channel lightly because it is a voice for the people who love Tyler Perry’s work. Something else that I would like to make clear is that I never post links or videos of the episodes themselves. That is a serious breach of trust as well as copyright infringement that could get my channel shutdown. Considering this is my one source of income, that would be a very bad idea…

Not to mention, that would be something that is against my own moral code. So, I wanted you to know that my channel is made of original content regarding my thoughts, ideas (as well as your own) about the HAHN along with Tyler Perry’s other shows and movies.

Keeping an eye on the subscriber number and seeing it increasing makes me feel like Goku collecting energy for his Spirit Bomb.

In case you missed the link above, I wanted to leave a link to my Youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/user/jbiblecarden

I also have other social media outlets that you should follow to make sure you are aware of my posts whenever I add something new to the channel:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through all of this. For those of you that have been supporting me since the start of my HAHN journey, I cannot thank you enough. To those of you that are just joining this big HAHN family, I hope you enjoy the ride because you haven’t seen anything yet! 

Please get my channel out there, and I will continue to do more videos. As always, I’ll be doing what I can to keep interest in the show alive and well even during the brief hiatus periods between seasons! 

10 Ways to Tell If You Are Addicted To Facebook

by Jeremy Carden

Facebook-logo-1817834

Social media is arguably part of the “average” lifestyle in today’s world rather than an addiction as most people label it. The topic of this blog is to determine 10 ways of identifying whether or not you are addicted to the popular social media website Facebook. I understand that it is a positive tool if you utilize it properly. It assists in helping people keep in touch with family and friends and if used the right way is a good way to network.

However, too much of a good thing is too much of a good thing. Let’s start the countdown at #10 and work our way to #1. Keep a tally of how many of these apply to yourself so you can determine whether or not you might have a Facebook addiction.

#10: False calls on inbox messages or notifications

After using Facebook for so long, I’m sure many of us have experienced “hearing” the ping sound that Facebook makes when you get a message from someone even when there isn’t a message. If it happens once or twice it is understandable. However, if it is something that you constantly find yourself going through then you might have a problem.

#9: If you play Whack-A-Mole with Facebook Chat

You know what I’m talking about when I compare inboxing friends to Whack-A-Mole: seeing if you can message someone when you see them “pop” online before they “pop” offline. This is common for guys AND girls when they are afraid to talk to their crush. They’ll see the person they want to talk to come on their Friend List in the corner of the screen in the chat box, hesitate for awhile before getting the nerve to send them a message but right when they feel brave enough the person goes offline! If you time when your crush gets on and offline sad to say that is considered stalking…

#8: Getting upset by the number of “Happy Birthday” posts written on your wall

There are some people who have 1,000+ friends and they will write a Happy Birthday message for every single one of their friends. However, they get upset if their birthday messages total 200 notifications when it is their birthday. In today’s world, birthday cards have been replaced with social media birthday wishes through text messages, Facebook posts or a tweet. I really don’t see the reason for getting so upset because nowadays who even remembers another person’s birthday? In the right-hand corner of the News Feed there is a link that tells you about which of your friends has a birthday coming up along with the people who have a birthday on that particular day.

#7: Going crazy when someone un-friends you

For some reason this is very common for a lot of Facebook users. When you have a lot of followers on Twitter it doesn’t really matter if you get un-followed or not. That is typically because Twitter is more about strangers following strangers with most people being followed by “eggs” you know the Twitter accounts that don’t have a normal profile picture but instead just have a picture of an egg. It doesn’t matter if you have 1,000 or more friends but this is typically something that people with only a few 100 friends or so will go through. There are so many things that run through their mind when they notice their Friend Count is down by 1.

images (9)

However, it should not be something to be bothered by because it is a waste of time trying to figure out if you did something wrong or why they would you un-friend you to begin with. Seriously I know some people who will actually go through their entire Friend List in order to figure out who un-friended them. They’ve got it bad…

#6: If your worst fear is the day the Facebook Company allows everyone to see how many times you have viewed their profile

I’m pretty sure we all have this fear buried somewhere in the back of our minds. Let’s just admit there is at least one person who’s profile we have visited one too many times. Whether it be a crush or an ex, we never want anyone to know how many times we’ve went to their page. I think that the Facebook Company DOES have the means to make it so anyone with a Facebook can tell how many times people have come on their profile. My guess is that the company made the wise decision not to make this possible because think of the chaos it would create!

#5: If you go too far in someone’s photos and LIKE one by accident making you believe that your life is over

It is very likely that you were creeping through that person’s pictures. There are some people who might be flattered if you liked a picture from 3 years ago but I have yet to meet one of those people. If you feel nervous going deep into someone’s photo albums then chances are you shouldn’t be looking through them to begin with. 9 times out of 10 the first thing you do when someone adds you as their friend is to go through their photos. Well either that or look at their relationship status depending on who the person is. The photos they post can tell a lot about that person and sometimes the past photos aren’t pretty… The next time you “accidentally” hit the LIKE button on someone’s old photo just chill because throwing your computer out the window or burning it won’t make that LIKE go away!

facebook-Are-you-a-Facebook-addict-Test-and-find-out

#4: Feeling like you HAVE to post something everyday

Don’t let the urge to post something dictate how you go about your day. Just because you can post something online doesn’t mean that you should. I’ve had a couple of people tell me that they are only on Facebook once or twice a month! Let me put it this way; if posting a status is the highlight of your day then something is seriously wrong!

images

#3: Judging your worth by the amount of LIKES you get

Come on get a grip! Just because someone posts a picture of themselves without hardly any clothes on and gets 2,500 LIKES doesn’t mean jack squat! If you are the kind of person who posts an inspiration quote or scripture that gets 1 or 2 LIKES don’t worry about it. Let your character be a demonstration of the kind of person you are not what you post online.

images (15)

#2: Checking your Facebook any chance that you can get

Making a routine click over to Facebook to see if you have any messages can turn into hours of scrolling up and down the News Feed page if you are not careful. That compulsive need to go online isn’t beneficial. It just proves that you might be spending more time on Facebook than you need to be.

facebook-newspaper

#1: Facebook is your home page

I remember when I first got a Facebook, I made it my homepage and after 2 weeks I could tell that I was becoming an addict. That was probably one of the worst mistakes I ever made. Whenever I got on the internet to get some work done, I would do the exact opposite and spend all of my time on Facebook.

images (16)

There are ways to fight the addiction that comes with a Facebook account. Don’t spend all of your free time just looking at other people’s profiles and looking at the News Feed waiting for something new to load. That is pretty much the equivalent of going to the fridge every 10 minutes hoping for something different to be in there the next time you open it.
