The viral experience – YouTube

Recently we had a video of ours make it to YouTube’s recommended views page! What a fantastic experience!

We watched everything unfold using SocialBlade to see our views & subscribers grow. It was amazing! We went from 248 subscribers & a little over 41,000 views to a whopping 1,024 subscribers & over 226,000 channel views! Amazing!

Okay, we’ll admit it wasn’t “the big time” but it was a taste of what viral velocity is or can be. Over a weekend we had more than 300 comments on a single video, no matter how hard we tried, we couldn’t keep up with every post. We did our best to respond to each one because someone taking the time to comment, should be rewarded (unless they’re being a dum-dum).

We received everything from praise and appreciation to haters & insults. We had emails from some of the best (and worst) commentors as well invitations (both real & fake) to participate with other channels & brands. That’s probably the most exciting part of it. The comment we originally pinned on the video was fantastic! It was filled with praise and approval, topped off with some valid constructive criticism (what we thought was valuable feedback). The haters got to it. In less than a day, this poor commentor received 57 replies, majority of them had a negative tone. Even though this comment was most likely part of the formula that made the video go “viral”, out of respect for them (and per their request) we unpinned it.

Oddly enough, shortly after that was done, the subscriber growth slowed and the intense daily views subsided… but wait. Was that because our video fell from the “recommended views” page or was it because of this comment? Hard to tell, but the viral velocity has dropped. Our channel continues to grow both in views & subscribers. We look forward to getting more into YouTube and creating more content to share with you (maybe even build a fan base?). Only time will tell!

Please feel free to leave a comment and/or subscribe, rate it even! Check out some of our other videos when you’re done.

In A Year From Now

Seriously, what’s the hold up? Pitter Patter, let’s get at her! No time like the present, carpe diem, YOLO and all of that! Grab that dream and run with it!

What’s my excuse? I’m working on that… I’ve got all these great ideas but can’t seem to find the time to get any of them done… why is that? Is it that I’m inefficient with the use of my time? Maybe a lack of time management? Am I too easily distracted? Just the fact that there’s only 24 hours in a day and I seem to need at least 8 of those to sleep and/or rest and a couple more dedicate to food and potty stops? Who am I waiting on?

These are not rhetorical questions… if you’ve got a hint, tip or idea to help any of us get it together and make it happen, PLEASE share!!!! I see comment section…

Motivation

Incentives

Motivation. Sometimes with threats, sometimes with rewards. I personally prefer rewards. When I feel threatened, I often feel less interested in doing a good job and more interested in just getting the job done. Reward my best work and you’ll get more of it!

What form of motivation best gets you going?

Spiral light show above Norway, similar to the one over China!

Here’s a cool video of one neat display! Is it UFO? A Russian missile? Or just an elaborat and amazing laser light show? One thing for sure, it does look like a vortex that could verywell be a portal that closes at the end! In any case, really neat looking!

Being a true Gentleman

Being a true Gentleman

These are good rules to live by men. Nice guys DON’T finish last, they end up with ladies. Our friend Sharpwit says, “Being a male is a matter of birth, being a man is matter of age, being a gentleman is a matter of manners or choice…” Choose wisely, sirs.
