I was working on another post and I came across this one from 2013. I thought it would be fun to revisit it. I’m kind of surprised, but not a lot has changed except view numbers have gone up. Some of these numbers are lower than they might be because I also cross post now on Vimeo.
You can find me on YouTube at Trundlebed Tales. According to the official YouTube channel counter I have 49 followers (come on, somebody make it a round 50, please?) and as of May 31, 2013, I had 19,345 total views of the videos I uploaded. In addition, a shortened version of my Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas program garnered views on the Herbert Hoover President Library and Museum YouTube Channel. (This link is to a playlist of all their Laura Ingalls Wilder related videos.)
I was kind of surprised how similar the video lists were. Number one and two swapped places. Only one new video was added and it bested two of the videos that were on the list last time (see number 4 below). I allowed the last two videos to be a tie since they were only 20 views apart.
