ONE YEAR OF YOUTUBE

COMPUTERS by KRISS on 26 august 2018

ONE YEAR OF YOUTUBE It’s Sunday morning, I went to bed rather late (2.30am) after binge watching the last 6 episodes of the series “the Killing”.
I woke up to the sweet sound of a group of drunk divas walking passed our boat singing “Amigo mio, jibberish, jibberish, jibberish, ser feliiiiiiiiiz” at 7.30am and it’s now 10am and I am yawning in front of my screen.
I want to go sailing today but there is no wind and it’s another day at 40°C and I am late on so many things !

I really need to start recording something for the Youtube channel this week, I haven’t done anything for the last 2 weeks and I am actually thinking about slowing the pace on that stupid channel this year.
Yes that’s the topic of this post and I am going to try to keep focused.

We started the Youtube channel about a year ago and I think we have published 50 episodes which makes an average of 1 episode a week more or less.
There has been absolutely no consistence to our publishing in spite of some people’s advice including my son Tom.
He clearly explained to me right from the beginning that I should publish on a fixed day at the same hour all the time .

But I’ve been a smart ass and assume that wouldn’t make much difference so I published whenever I felt like it !

I lacked consistency in the format as well, changing the introduction about 3 times and making episodes anywhere between 5 minutes to 15 minutes.

Let’s cut a long story short : it took us over a trimester to gain the first 100 subscribers and after 1 year we are hardly getting closer to the 300 subscribers.
We have one patron on our patreon platform and it’s Kate’s mum out of pity ! Let’s face it, the analysis of the results are catastrophic, we suck at Youtube !

I have been blogging on this page for the last 3 years in a more or less consistent manner (about the same as Youtube), but hey screw you that’s who I am, and it’s yielded about the same results… none !

So this year is a year of change, even more than last year I guess because now we need to consolidate our project and make it work.
I had high hopes a year ago when we started this channel, I would say : A family of 5 and a dog, with no knowledge of boats whatsoever, no money, dreaming about buying a sailboat and actually going for it, we’re going to hit the roof, sure thing ! Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong !

We’re not giving up though and I have high hopes again (aren’t I a dreamer !) but this year I am listening to what people who know have to say.
These are my new year’s resolutions for the Youtube channel :

- less content (one episode every 2 weeks).
- better content.
- fixed publishing timetable.

We’ll see where we are in 1 year’s time !
