My video "How to sling like a Balearic slinger" has just gone past 100,000 views. That's a lot of potential slingers out there!

So have YouTube paid you for it ?
And how does that all work.

Should be worth around 400 quid.
Although getting info on what YouTube pay people is tricky, I've seen a few estimates.

It's the combination of Monty pythonesque deadpan delivery, with solid slinging tutorage that just works Smiley

Also I don't think you were even going for the comedy element, which is what makes it so genuinely hilarious.
As well as the best 'how to start slinging' tutorial out there Thumbs Up

Given just how many slinging videos you've posted over the last 10 years or so, it's about time you got some recognition.

Now all we need to do is to figure out how to get timpa similar recognition Smiley

Awesome! It's great to see, after literally thousands of years, slinging live on.

As I said, calm, concise, measured.
100,000 hits in 6 months.

You need to work on the strange but you are doing things your way and it reflects well on the community.

Cheers and thanks

My outlook on life is Aristotalean; on seeing an Acorn I see a potential oak tree rather than Plato's view that it is a failed copy.
Look forward to meeting at Slingfest 2022.

Well done sir! It just shows how much latent interest is really out there for slinging. So much potential to grow this community!
