Hi.  Me again.  

Another youtube experiment for you all.  I've got a video I'm really excited about and I was hoping, with your help, we can get youtube to give it some extra love.  

It's about gardening and destruction and adorable chickens (and a duck).

The experiment:
If you can follow this link  and press "set reminder".   Maybe let me know here that you've done it so we can get an idea of how many.

If you happen to be around on Thursday, maybe you might watch the video and leave a like or a comment, that would be a huge help after it goes live - but not directly part of this experiment.

The experiment is more for seeing how many people press "set reminder" and seeing if this influences how many people youtube shows the video.  I'm hoping it has a positive influence on the algorithm, but I'm also aware this might backfire and set my youtube journey way back if lots of people set a reminder and no one watches it the first day.  A bit like a game of snakes and ladders, I don't know which one I'm going to land on (or none) with every roll of the dice.

I don't have a smartphone so I don't know how it works.  Can anyone help with this?  I think you have to be logged in to youtube, but other than that, I have no idea.

Followed the link and set reminder. I wasn't able to see a way to set a reminder time though. A message appeared saying that I'll be reminded when it goes live. Oh, and it gives the date and time as Mar 10, 6:00am. Is that the right time?

I've lived practically all of my life in Kansas where,  to paraphrase Drew Carey, the seasons are made up and the dates don't matter.  

I remember getting a blizzard on the last day of Spring Break that kept us out of school for an extra two weeks.  I can count the White Christmases I've seen here with one hand despite approaching 50, but at least 3× a many White Halloweens.

I figured out that Groundhog Day,  March Lion/Lamb, even ideas like which season comes next are all very... fluid... here.  

And when the other shoe drops with Kansas weather,  it's usually still locked in a concrete & steel armoire...  and drops Ala Acme Safes in a Wiley Coyote cartoon...

Oh, and reminder set.

I clicked the link, but there was no button to set reminder.  i tried to scroll beyond what i saw on my computer screen, but still no reminder button.  maybe because of the time that has passed?
