Back at the end of January I wrote a post about how one of my videos on Youtube had gone viral… at least to me ;) Quick recap, about a year ago a video I posted in 2017, an electronic version of The House of the Rising Sun, started to get some attention. First it was a few hits a day. Then it was averaging 10 views a day. It continued to rise. When I posted on January 28, I was getting up to 60 views a day. Within a week it was getting 80 or 90 views and total views on my YouTube channel was over 100 views a day!
And then it wasn’t.
Going from 100 views a day to single digits took four days. Since the end of the second week of February I have had few days with more than a dozen total views. I posted three videos in that period, all of which performed, well – let’s just say I never, from the beginning, had videos that have had this few views this far in, particularly the last one, the 4th movement of my Piano Sonata in c# minor.
And The House of the Rising Sun?
Nope, no hits there in weeks. Views had slowly grown over a year and disappeared over night.
Oh well, easy come, easy go.
Hopefully my next video will be viral ;)
