YouTube Is the Second-Largest Search Engine in the World
In past months we’ve talked about our presence on various social media sites.
There’s also YouTube.
People gravitate to video.
As a writer, I don’t so much like this interest in video, but I have written video scripts for some of my clients, and it’s a lot of fun.
As a consumer, I like videos. They pop up on Facebook and Twitter, where they seem to capture people’s attention over images and text. (Again, not good news for writers.)
I have a YouTube channel. It has 41 videos on it. And I have a whopping two subscribers. [January 2022 update: 317 videos and 248 subscribers.]
Most of the videos are for my blog posts, which my VA embeds into my posts on my blog. My VA also creates videos for me based on my text. She does a great job, so if you like them, it’s all because of her!
I also have a book trailer video for my first book, Martin Luther’s 95 Theses (formerly 95 Tweets). This reminds me. I need to make a trailer for my book, How Big Is Your Tent? and a book trailer for my third book, Women of the Bible.
