This month shop’s YouTube channel achieved a little milestone- 1 000 subscribers! Honestly, it was an unexpected surprise to me as I am very new to the platform, and still learning all the features, how to make videos, tutorials, and how the platform works. I opened the shop’s channel 5 months ago with 4 videos and wasn’t very active till August 2020. And just like that, after posting short videos with my blanket designs from having 6 subscribers for 4 months, it grew in one month and a half to 1K.
Personally, I love YouTube because I learned most things I know from this amazing free resource. And I feel happy to be a part of the community of creators, educators, and artists. This year is difficult for every family and for every business, especially for creatives. Being able to connect with people who have the same passion means the world to me.
My boys are dreaming of becoming YouTubers, and they know better YouTube than I do. They told me that for 1k, 5k, 10k + subscribers the YouTubers they follow made special videos for their audience, so following their advice I made mine.
It will sound funny, but I feel that my boys were never more proud of their mama than now. I officially become their “cool mom”, and they give me advice about features I can use, milestones, etc. They also do my videos critique and tell me what equipment I need to buy to improve their quality. Who knows, maybe I am growing my future social media and marketing managers?!
It’s a new “adventure” for me, but I feel grateful for the new connections and new opportunities they have to offer. 1000 thank you for watching my videos, your likes, comments, and requests to post a video tutorial or pattern. I already have a list to work on long enough to keep me busy for the next few months! I can’t describe how great it feels to be able to share my passion, my designs, and have such a direct connection with knitters and crocheters from all over the world. This year it is treasured more than ever, and I can say that it was the best thing that happened to me as a creative entrepreneur in 2020.
Warmest wishes from Italy, and one more time – 1000 THANK YOU!
