And how do I organise the videos I want to publish on my YouTube Channel?

This is a classic case of overthinking something. How do I organise the videos I want to publish on my YouTube Channel?

I have published videos to my YouTube channel over the last couple of years. And I want to get everything up there over the next couple of weeks to clear the decks for what I am planning this spring.

And what has been stopping me from doing this? 

How do I work out what has been published, and how do I organise this? 

And today I was sat staring at my camera roll on my iPad Pro and realised just how simple this was to do.

Add all the videos to a new folder, upload them then remove them from the folder.

If I think i have uploaded any all I need to do is check. And of course I could go through them on my iPad when back in the office and remove the ones that have been published. 

Simple

Why did it take me so long to come up with this ever so simple plan? 

I wish I knew. 

And I am going to see what impact this has on the views I receive.

Here is a screen shot of the YouTube app with the stats for the last 30 days, showing a steady decline in views since my last batch of adding/ updating/ optimising

And another great App from Google is YouTube Studio - I have just found this one

You Tube Studio . Another App from Google that looks to be incredibly useful that I have just come across. I was wondering if there was a version of Google Analytics for YouTube, and this is it.

I have just downloaded this App, which gives me the headline numbers

  • Watch time in minutes
  • Views
  • Subscriber change

over the last 28 days. 

There is lots more of course which I will discover but these are great headline figures for now.

You Tube - Yes I have my own You Tube Channel! And videos on my blog now

Why I hear you ask? 

Because video is a natural extension of still photography, and something I am asked to do from time to time.

I am learning this very, very slowly on the side using just my IPhone and my imagination. (Even more slowly than when I drafted this post!).

That should be enough! 

I am posting my videos on You Tube, which is rather important being owned by Google. And being as clever as You Tube is it means I can add these videos to my Squarespace blog in no time which is good.

How do you get to my You Tube Channel? Just click here

Well that was the theory. This all stopped as soon as it started. Something I need to get back into. My aim now in February 2017 is to produce one video per month and post it to You Tube and my photography blog

You Tube is the second biggest search engine after Google after all! 

This gives me a blog with even more varying content including; 

  • Portfolio photography images
  • Quick edit images
  • Photography News
  • News on my photography business
  • Detailed articles on photography subjecta
  • Photography tips
  • Quick photography tips
  • Iphone images and brief snippets
  • Videos

And anything else remotely photography related.  

I am also posting my videos to Instagram, the excellent photographers platform.
