... who watches my videos at youtube. Seriously. Someone is watching them. I so wonder how they come across them. I've uploaded about 40 videos now, almost all of them of my turtles ... and all of them have been watched by someone, or a few someones, even though I've done nothing to promote most of them. Some of the videos I've put in blogposts, so that makes sense - when someone watches them here on the blog, that gets registered as watched on youtube. I assume. But most of them are only on my youtube channel. Which I have linked to on the right hand sidebar, but still. I can't really imagine a lot of people following that link. I don't think I have more than a dozen readers here, tops. :-)
Yesterday I uploaded four more vidoes - Raphael climbing and running, and Herman and Henrik begging for food - and within a few hours all of them had been watched several times. By whom, I wonder? :-) I also got my first subscriber yesterday, and my first ever comment on one of the videos. The subscriber is someone in Denmark (she is one of the people who's watched my new videos, I assume), and the comment came from someone in the US. The weirdness of the intarwebs! How did these people even find my videos. I have to wonder.
If anyone reads this and wants to do me a favor: would you go to youtube and do a search for, let's say 'reeves turtle'? I'm not sure if I do it myself the results won't be skewed somehow. Then post a comment to let me know if any of my videos come up with that search. Or 'RES' or 'red eared slider turtle'.
Not that it matters, but I am curious. :-)
