I’m Celebrating 1 Million YouTube Video Views!

how to achieve 1 million video views

Last summer I told my husband about a crazy goal I had.  I wanted to reach 1,000,000 YouTube video views by the end of the year.  Matthew did some quick calculating for me and said he really thought it was achievable.  I tried to create more content and focus on things that I felt like others would relate to and want to watch.  If you have been following this blog for some time you know that I have been posting video reviews since the beginning, but I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and start creating other content.

Sometimes it can be hard to put yourself or your (very southern) voice on camera.  I am still surprised when I find comments or emails from readers who say they always wondered what I sounded like!  Yes, I sound pretty much like a 5 year old girl {just ask my great aunt Carolyn}.  To my surprise, you guys liked what I did {ok, maybe you were just trying to make me feel better and watched it out of pity}.  Either way, I am happy to say that about 9 days short of my goal I am finally at the magical 1,000,000 YouTube video views!  Even if it took an extra week longer than my original goal, I am still over the moon that I pretty much set a goal and achieved it {one that I thought was unreachable}.

Here’s one of my more popular hair tutorial videos. You may have already seen it, but I just crack up over my non-hairstyling-talk! Yikes! This is real life folks. Now, let me see if I can find 1 million brownies to celebrate!
