A Major Milestone Approaches

Posted by Dave Bull on June 8, 2020 [Permalink]

Here's a screenshot I took a few minutes ago - it's a panel in the Dashboard on our YouTube channel:

As you can see, the number of people who have subscribed to our YouTube channel is going to 'roll over' to a milestone number sometime in the next few days ... 100,000! Wøøt!

I was quite late coming to YouTube, putting the first video up in January of 2011. Six years later - by mid 2017 - we had slowly climbed to about 14,000 subscribers. But on the evening of June 24, 2017 something changed inside the YouTube algorithm, and instead of 20~30 people a day watching our videos, the figure suddenly jumped to more than 10,000 per day, and it has stayed consistently high since then. I haven't looked back since, and YouTube has become a very important part of our work here at Mokuhankan.

Some of the numbers are difficult to comprehend - more than a million and a half people have now watched the 'Remembering a Carver' video:

… and when I sit down to make a new one these days, I try not to think too much about that when pressing the red 'record' button. Talk about stage fright!

Thank you very much to all of you who have watched some of them, and I'll keep working hard to try and keep good ones coming!

(And I can't wait to get my silver Play Button! Maybe we’ll make an Unboxing Video for it! :-)
