Hey! A few years back I started a YouTube channel on a bit of a whim – just somewhere to put a few odd music videos. Now it stands at over half a million views which is just ridiculous when I think about it 😛
So it began about 4 years back, when I uploaded my first video. It’s an odd feeling to put stuff on the internet for literally the world (apart from a few places like North Korea, Cuba etc) to see.
At first not much happened. There were a few views and some lovely comments which were absolutely amazing <3 but no major viewing figures. A year or so down the line and still not much had happened, but fast forward to 3 years ago, and just after I put up a video of a cover of my alltime favouritest ever Christmas song, ‘Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty Maccoll’ when a few more views started to roll in <3
Then a few months later I covered Tom Odell’s Another Love, firstly just on piano and then a piano and vocal cover and I got loads more views so quickly! Honestly it was so cool 😀 These videos now stand at over 150k each which is pretty cool, and although they’re not my best vids, and I kind of cringe when I watch them I’m super proud that they lay a foundation for bringing people to my channel, and also that people actually like them! The best thing about YouTube is the fact that it brings people to the same place for a short period of time, and the lovely comments I get are such a lovely thing to have and to read.
Whenever I’m down I just read a few of the kind comments people have left <3
Since then I’ve done a few more – Bruce Horsnby and The Range’s The Way It Is which I covered has gone down well!
Anywhoo since the start of 2016 I’ve neglected YouTube – I moved out, came out (ooer) and lots of other stuff so have been super busy, but I’ll be on it again soon!
I’d love to start a vlog, so we’ll see where that goes!
Anyways, if you haven’t seen my channel, please do check it out here!
Oh a like, share and subscribe pls thnx! <3
