Reaching new heights: “Probinsyano” vlogger continues to grow audience

It was only in May 2019 that I began to vlog regularly on YouTube. I didn’t take my vlogging to my Facebook Page until around March 2020. As a “probinsyano” I didn’t expect to attract a substantial audience. For one thing, my Tagalog was bad when I started.

But I persisted, applying the 1% rule that James Clear wrote about in his book, “The Atomic Habits.” Even if I found it difficult to speak in the national language, I endeavored to vlog 2 to 3 times a week initially until I gained enough confidence to go livestreaming almost every day for 1 and 1/2 hours per episode.

I will vlog about the 1% rule at a future date. Simply put, one must strive to improve whatever skill set he or she wants to build just 1% each day. Over time, the knowledge and skills accumulate using the compound interest formula, and before you know it, you’ve breached new heights.

My YouTube channel now has around 144,430 subscribers while my FB Page has around 76,630 followers. I even have two more YouTube channels.

Now I have videos that hit 1 million views or even more.Now this will balance the playing field I am fighting to expose the corruption of Senator Franklin Drilon. When I started, Drilon virtually controlled the media. He controlled the Senate. And his influence extended to our judiciary.

With all his might, Drilon has failed to totally silence me. Yes, there’s a jail term awaiting me. He won’t be able to stop the “truth express” that will completely reveal the magitude of his corruption.

My audience will help me spread that truth. And truth is my only weapon. I am confident it will demolish the thick walls of corruption that Drilon has built around himself.
