Hello again and thank you so much for reading.
So I opened my email yesterday and I am so depressed. I just read that YouTube policies are changing, what they are basically doing is that as of February 20, 2017, if you don’t reach 1,000 followers and 4,000 hours of views your channel will lose all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).
I went into a panic and I reached a YouTube community that received the same email. we decided to help each other and subscribe to each other’s channels, I even made a video thanking them in advance for their support and it was working, I mean I started with 299 subscribers and by the end of the of the day I had 500 followers I was on a roll!! I was so happy.
This morning I woke up and did my routine, send the children to school and my husband to work and when I open my YouTube channel I only had 320 followers. WHAT??! I was so mad. WHAT HAPPEN? I went back to the YouTube Community Forum and starting reading and all of them had the same problem.
I figured that maybe YouTube is erasing subscribers if the people that subscribe to your channel is not even opening one video to like it or leave a comment, God knows what is going on.
I started my channel 2 years ago, I was on a roll I had like 100 followers in a year and my first video got around 19k views. I made 3 cooking videos and it was good, I got some views and more subscribers, but then life happened and I stopped. After I bought my very expensive camera and lights and I even learned how to make videos presentations I decided to come back this year. I started to write my own novela (Spanish soap opera) and I have at least 50 more new videos with new recipes to post, but what should I do?
My idea was to do my blog here in English and my vlogs thru YouTube in Spanish but they are a making it so IMPOSSIBLE!
To tell you the truth I kind of understand YouTube there is a lot of bad videos out there but I have more than 19k views that should count for something.
Well one thing you will find out about me, I don’t give up very easily, so I am going to keep posting videos and will keep promoting my YouTube channel and God willing, I will reach my goal.
Can you help me? PRETTY PLEASE?!.
Go to my YouTube channel, it is on my main page’s Menu (http://www.youtube.com/c/LowreleysFoodCraftsmore) and please subscribe and go thru my videos and like them and comment. To tell you the truth my first three videos are kind of dark but my Soap Opera is good and I will make new recipes videos with my new lights. Don’t forget the videos are in Spanish because I blog in English and Vlog in Spanish.
I really hope I do reach my goal and if you do have the same problem please comment and I will definitely visit your YouTube channel, I love visiting YouTubers and support them. Leave your comment and follow I will follow back, Thanks.
