Welcome back to YouTube Sunday – it’s so good to be back! I’ve loved watching all your videos this week – there was a definite theme – cleaning and resolutions – typical January right there!
This linky is perfect for fledgling YouTubers (like me) to help get your videos out there and to virtually ‘meet’ and make friends with other YouTubers in the same position. I’ve found so many great channels through the last year of running this linky.
I know that we’ve all been floored with the recent news from YouTube that they are de-monetising smaller channels, those with under 1,000 subs and under 4,000 hours of views in the last year. I’ve been really working on my channel over the last four months and my views are up to a level where I meet the hours requirement, but of course historically I don’t so looking back over the last 12 months drags my average down and I’m a whopping 60,000 minutes short. I was thinking about what I could do to help all my lovely YouTube Sunday members increase their view time and I decided that I’m going to make a playlist out of all the videos that link up on a Sunday and I’ll email everyone who links up a link to the playlist. We can all then easily share everyone’s videos in one go. I always encourage everyone to watch and comment on as many videos in the link up as they can, but even if you can’t do them all, you could leave the playlist running in the background just to increase people’s view times. Every little helps! Because of this I’ve decided to keep the linky open for just the one day so I can put together the playlist on Monday ready for the week ahead. I hope that all makes sense!
If you haven’t linked up before this linky goes live every Sunday and you just add your video to the linky at the bottom. Please watch, thumbs up and comment on as many other videos as you can but at the very least on the host video and the video before yours. Remember that commenting on other videos is not only a nice thing to do for a fellow vlogger, but it’s also a great way of advertising your channel, as other commenters will see your name. And no one likes a link dumper 😉
I’ll be watching every video and making sure that I share them on social media. Keep a look out on twitter for the hashtag #YouTubeSunday and retweet as many as you can!
Last week’s playlist can be found below, if you want to easily share it just copy and paste this link https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmYDvsJgiW_AC1fblBj_tCy4v878T0ofd
So here’s this week’s link up, I’m really looking forward to watching all your videos this week too! Don’t forget to please watch, thumbs up and comment on the host video and at least the one before yours. Share the love! Thanks everyone!
