OK, so I am at the end of my second month on BuyMeACoffee and so how is it going?

Well:

  • Posts — 3

  • Extras published — 1 (I don’t expect that to happen every month)

  • New videos to YouTube — 0

  • BuyMeACoffee visitors — 24 (down 66% on last month)

  • Coffees bought for me — 0

Last month I commented that I had spent a lot of time sorting out my YouTube Channel — I added in links to BuyMeACoffee, created playlists, added in metadata (tags) to videos that didn’t have any and generally ‘blew the dust off’ by removing old videos.

The net impact was initially zero, but it now appears to be slightly negative in that all stats are down with 1000 fewer views, 20 hours less material watched, and I am 7 down on the usual number of subscribers I pick up.

However, let’s look for a bright side. Compared to this time last year, I am getting more jam double the number of views per month (2226 v. 5657); I have increased from 63.9 hours per month to 150, but I picked up three fewer subscribers this year compared to last. So, overall, I would say progress is being made, but I am still a long way short of getting the YouTube Channel monetised.

And still, no one has bought me a coffee....
