I don't recall how I found Permies, but when I did I binged on it for over a month every spare moment I had! I learned so much. And it's literally only in the last few months or so. And here's my observation on today's topic.
Before i ever heard of Permies I watched YT videos about various homesteading topics and eventually heard of permaculture, hugelkulture and food forests. Great stuff.
So today I did a search on YT for Permaculture. I'm scrolling, and scrolling and scrolling........
The first video of yours to show up was the 56th video on the page! It was from 8 years ago and on hugelkulture. And I will say I only recently realized you had a channel.
YT likes channels that people 'Like', 'Share' and 'Subscribe' to.
So, why don't we, dear Permies subscribers all go on a quest to watch some random videos of Paul's and like, share, subscribe and ask our acquaintances to do so when we share?
And always within your videos Paul, ask people to like, share and subscribe.
Video length: I've often found a YT video that's Part # whatever. If it's interesting I'll go to great lengths to find the other parts. So yeah, I agree with others about length. But instead of redoing all the past long ones (which would be a hellacious project but could be done), just insert a clip at beginning and a small graphic on thumbnail saying "See description for chapters" and or time in video about certain topics or however you want to divide them up .
Also, someone mentioned the bandwidth requirements of videos that are long for us backwoods (I said backwoods, not backwards) people! I will give it to YT that their videos WILL actually stream when others won't. I barely have cell service even with a nice booster antenna, so often times can't even watch a video. Damn this metal roof!
