My hard work is actually paying off... go figure.

Im now 20 days into this whole "taking it seriously" thing and i guess its actually working. Who would've thought hard work would yield results?
Ive done well so far with uploading about 3 videos a week and though the videos on their own aren't getting much attention... (in comparison to my past once-in-a-blue-moon uploads) ...they are still getting SOME views. Since im uploading and doing A LOT more now, those tiny bits of attention seem to be adding up... assuming this chart isn't a dirty damn liar.
On top of the uploads, ive been trying out "summary" posts here on my website where i simply upload a collection of whatever vids i had already uploaded that week. Looking at each individual video ive noticed i get 2 view spikes now. Once when its uploaded, then again when i do the summary post.
On my deviantART profile ive been making sure to upload atleast 1 picture a week, with every Wednesday having a new page of IoHS pop up. (along with sketches, screenshots, tattoo progress, etc.)
Jumping to the sharing and social media side of things. I went ahead and got a Twitter and Patreon! (you guys should totally check those out if you haven't already.) Following me would really help out a lot, hell you could even mute my posts and Patreon has a simple "follow" option that doesnt require money spent at all.
With those sites ive been sure to repost ANYTHING i do creatively and EVERYTHING i do to the Patreon, cuz lets face it, if you're supporting me on Patreon you deserve to see where your money is going!
Is this the formula for success? Maybe, i think 20 days is a little early to tell but so far the numbers don't lie...

Now on a serious note.
I have a few creative and life adventures im still working on and about to start on and i would like to thank each and every one of you who have supported me. (both emotionally and financially)
You guys are the bees knees.

  1. I'm to understand the YouTube Algorithm favors video creators who upload frequently, in the form of having content show up faster in video searches...or something like that? The work to keep up with such things feels a little exhausting to me, especially when I consider how much social media traffic is manned by bots these days.

    But I'm to understand you're doing this for YOURSELF rather than what YouTube says, which is boss. And you're enjoying it? A "taking it seriously" approach is something to appreciate, and I'm enjoying the updates as they come round. May this experiment continue to give you smiles. ;)

    1. Man I don't even know anymore about the algorithm, I hear it changes all the time, so im just running with it.
      A lot of what I WASNT doing before was part of me just telling myself "nah don't do that" or "nobody wants to see any of that". Just constantly downing myself and potential for no reason. So im trying to cut out all negativity and "go for gold". Ya know?
      And thanks again for all your support on social media and all that.
