Woodwork, writing, walks, DIY and more!

Plate or Platter?

This latest YouTube upload has already received quite a phenomenal response…

Within the first 24 hours, I think it had reached over 200 views but the staggering part was the sheer number of likes – all 42 of them!

My all-time record for a single video is somewhere between 40 and 50 and that arrived after several days, maybe even a week and many more views. A couple more days passed and that figure doubled!

Now, at the time of writing; I’ve received over 1,200 views for a video less than one week old and, wait for it…

Over 120 clicks on the Like button!!!

I cannot thank people enough because those figures are astonishing! It’s gone a little bit viral and it’s hard for me to see why… But then, if I’m going to try and analyse this, I’d be missing the point when I should simply be trying to acknowledge and accept it. I’ve had some pretty well-known woodworkers following me back on Google+ recently which might also have helped, I guess. With this, comes an air of pressure and ‘expectation’… By setting such a high standard and attracting a new audience (very close to 1,000 subscribers now) with this latest video, I feel a little under pressure to keep that going and not to disappoint.

As I’ve said before; I’ve got a few months’ worth of video footage sat and waiting to be edited on my hard drive, which should help to keep my channel alive throughout the winter months.

If you haven’t seen it already, please enjoy the video. Feedback is always welcome and I’d especially like to know whether you would regard this piece as a plate or as a platter… šŸ™‚

THANK YOU ALL!
