Very few things occupy our minds right now, and the conversations around the Oscars are one of them. Did you know Lilly Singh is hosting the Oscars Pre-Show alongside Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Graham? We're still thinking about the times Singh would make YouTube content out of her room. It's incredible to see how far she's come, isn't it? 🔥
More on the Oscars later! Grab a coffee and check out the weekly round-up of all that's brewing in the creator economy, this week. 👇

Jaroldeen Asplund Edwards on Consistency
A lot is said about consistency, but the thing is, we can’t always be consistent. Not in the same way every day. It’s a different battle or process each day, and the only way to remain consistent is by not looking at short-term developments. Jaroldeen Asplund Edwards, a writer-speaker who talks about motivation and creativity, has written a book called The Daffodil Principle, which covers what transpires when you take a small action each day toward your goals.

Zach King Made $2,198 in a Month through YouTube Shorts Ads
We all know it's only been a month ever since YouTube Shorts introduced ads, but creators are already experimenting with it. We love that short-form content can be monetized, and we're placing our big bets on it.
We've also been posting lots of Shorts.
Creator Zach King has generated about 196.4M views on his Shorts, this February, and made about $2,918.10 from those Shorts.
Zach took to Twitter to share the deets and mentioned how Shorts monetization is better than Instagram monetization. He also shares his predictions for Shorts. Check it out here.
50K Subscribers in 30 Days 🤯

We caught up with Enrico Tartarotti, a YouTuber with about 64.2K subscribers, to talk about YouTube growth, what happens when you go viral, and if trending content helps you grow.
This is a super insightful conversation; we learned quite a lot from it, and we believe you can too. Watch it here. 👇
