Looking for your help

As many of you may already know, The Knitted Raven has a YouTube Channel. I actually started it before my SCAD, while I was still The Purple Raven, but then it sat neglected for three years.  

The day I finally went back to it, it was with the intention of decommissioning it.  I noticed that some of the videos had actually seen a lot of traffic during my nearly three year absence. Some videos had lovely comments of encouragement as well. 

So I decided to relaunch the channel and slowly start posting more videos.  I've already uploaded two in 2022 and have another one to upload tonight.  This afternoon I've been making and adding more attractive thumbnails for each of my videos and reorganizing the playlists.

Because a few of my videos have had thousands of views, YouTube now shows advertisements on most of them.  Unfortunately, they have criteria before they start sharing any income with video makers.  And here is where I need your help.

In order to qualify for the content maker's share of the ad revenue, I need to have at least 1000 subscribers and 4000 watched hours of video.  My channel currently has 864 subscribers and 1269 watched hours.  Because my videos are short, around 15 minutes or less, it takes a lot of video views to get to 4000 hours.  To put things in perspective, one of my shortest videos is the most popular and has had over 31,000 views since it was posted.

So I am here today to ask you to consider helping me out by:

  • subscribing to my channel - HERE
  • watching some of the videos - LIST HERE
  • hitting the thumbs up button on those videos that you like
  • sharing posts that I make about my channel and videos on Facebook and other social media
None of this will cost you anything except a little time and will help me work my way towards YouTube's monetization threshold.  Now that I am on disability and unable to work in the traditional sense, I'm considering this as an opportunity to build a potential source of future income by working on my channel as I can.

Thanks, in advance, for your help!  Onward and upward!
