Results of my 30 day Youtube Shorts Challenge

I finished my Shorts Challenge, and though I didn’t reach 1000 subscribers, I’m still happy with the results.

I gained 74 subscribers and almost 30,000 views. More importantly, I learned a ton:

  1. When you post a lot, there are days you feel you have nothing relevant to say. You have to post anyway. Although two days– I just couldn’t. But, one of the days I was not feelin’ the short I made, it received over 1,500 views and many likes and positive comments.
  2. If you want people to look at your video, post what they want to see. Even if the content is the most incredible thing you have ever done, if others aren’t interested in it, there’s no reason to post it as a short.
  3. Titles matter. A LOT. Even if it’s repetitive of other videos you have posted and sounds hokey to you, clicky titles work, and if it gets someone to your content, it’s worth it. Just make certain it is accurate to the content.
  4. Capcut is a fun, easy-to-learn and use editing tool, and amazingly, it’s free.
  5. Though I didn’t reach my goal of 1000 subscribers. Full disclosure, I did not do everything I was advised to do. I recommend Robert Benjamin’s mentoring program. He delivered what was promised. I learned a lot and grew my channel. Thank you, Robert and Team!

I intend to continue with one short a day and one or two longer videos weekly. Hopefully, I’ll make my subs and hours goals in the next few months.

Wish me 🤞 luck; stop by my channel if you like content on food forests, slow living, ex-pat life, and Nicaragua.

About vsvevg

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.
