Trini Style with Dinesh

Lyndon Baptiste: Today we’re talking YouTube with a YouTuber named “Trini Stye with Dinesh”. You joined YouTube on the 27th of June 2013. Sometime around September 2013 you posted 127 videos. You’ve grown your channel to almost 4 000 subscribers and 1 million views. I’m looking forward so much to talking about YouTube strategy uh monetization and how you go about promoting your videos right so before we get started on all that good stuff tell me a little bit about what inspired you to start posting content on YouTube back in 2013.

Trini Style with Dinesh: I was always fascinated by social media. We started with Facebook. Then we went to WhatsApp and YouTuber. I decided to take a bigger step into YouTube because I always considered it a wider platform for social media content. I always wanted to highlight the tassa group.

Lyndon Baptiste: Before we talk about YouTube monetization what gear do you use?

Trini Style with Dinesh: A Samsung Note 10. No external microphone but I have a gimbal and a GoPro 11. I edit all my videos on an app I bought for my phone.

Web Design Bookcamp

Are you interested in learning the basics of web design? I can help. In early 2000 I started learning programming on my own. A deep passion for programming led me to COSTAATT; and the School of Business where I graduated from the University of Greenwich with First Class Honours. I’m also the first Zend Certified Engineer in the Caribbean.

For years I’ve toyed with the idea of teaching programming and web development to students. To kick things off I’m starting a Web Design Bootcamp where I’ll introduce students to the basics of HTML and CSS. In the workshop, I’ll also reveal tools and websites students can use to launch their very own website. Every Monday I’ll offer a two-and-a-half-hour workshop that starts at 6:00 PM. The workshop costs TTD $250 (roughly USD $40). Please note that payment must be received prior to the workshop via cash deposit or online transfer. To register use the Calendly form below:

Once registered, you can issue payment to the following banking details:

I’m happy I finally started a podcast

As far back as May 2019 I wanted to start a podcast, and although I bought an audio interface, I sat on the dream. I knew what I wanted the podcast to be about, and I invested in decent gear so it’s difficult to say why it never kicked off. I was busy, yes, but not so busy that I couldn’t find the time. It’s February 2023 and between November and today I’ve managed to pull off interviews with amazing guests, YouTubers, Trini Tiktokers, and musicians; creators like Trinbago Vibes, Stephon Felmine, and Sean Young Wing.

Playing All Fours with Trouble from Trini Out and About

Let’s backtrack. In August 2022, not long after Mr Bat died, quiet and feeling somewhat at sea, I eventually reached out to Trini Out and About and asked him if he’d help me with an idea I had. Without knowing the full details he agreed. We played All Fours, I learned his real name, and I learned how to cook the perfect curry chicken (or chicken curry). I’d go on to chat with Lance Baptiste about his book, The Ghost of Caura which is available on Amazon; and Kaleel, who has a YouTube channel that focuses on the art scene in Trinidad. I quickly learned (or rather was reminded) what a pleasure it is to speak to people with similar dreams and interests.

In a short time, I’ve learned a lot about life; the early days of comedy in Trinidad from Errol Fabien; and how businesses can create useful content from Juma Bannister who you can connect with on LinkedIn.

For me, podcasting is harder than vlogging and writing episodes of RedwallNews. It takes time to consume an interviewee’s content, but I’m enjoying listening and learning from talented people like Kwasi Holder, Errol Fabien, and Reaping What You Sow.

I started a podcast for creators

My name is Lyndon Baptiste, and I’m a writer and content creator from Trinidad and Tobago. For a long time, I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a podcast because I’d like to talk to creators, be it writers, YouTubers, Tiktokers, singers, and artists from Trinidad and Tobago, and the Caribbean.

My goal is to capture the “business” of content creation so that others can learn about creativity and the process of writing, book and video editing, and hopefully cross hurdles faster.

In the first episode I talk to Lance Baptiste, the author of The Ghost of Caura, and a YouTuber from Trinidad and Tobago. Listen to the episode here. And if you’re interested in purchasing his book you can download in on Amazon.com.
