Congrats with your 50.000 YouTube subscribers

Hi Marion,

Congratulations with your 50.000 YouTube subscribers!

A long time ago you knitted a lot. You made a lot of nice things like, scarfs, gloves, dresses, socks, sweaters, animals and bags.

Later on you started crocheting Mochila bags. They were hard to make and you did not know how to do it, so you figured it out yourself and used internet for that too.

After a while you wanted to help other people and made the video "Mochila, the beginning, 8 increases". It was so hard to get a flat bottom with 8 increases so an instruction video was a good idea. As far as I can remember you started the bottom all over again at least 15 times.😫 Put books on it and even jumped on it to get the bottom flat (or is the last one mine imagination😉).

On 19 Februari 2015 you proudly uploaded your 1st YouTube video.

After a few month you told me how many people already viewed your video and I was surprised. This video had been viewed 35.000 times. At that time I thought 35.000 different people watched it, but that was just a noob thought. Now we know, people watch instruction videos more than once to figure out how they have to do it right.

Anyway, you had many ideas and made more videos to help others.

Your crocheting technique improved and you started to add new things to the Mochila bags like a Kumihimo cord, crab stitch, double Moss stitch and you made several kinds of bands for your Mochila bags resulting into new videos.

A lot of people struggle with the yarns when crocheting and an amazing amount of people like your video "Mochila, how to prevent the yarns from tangling" .

At that time your English was already very good (especially compared to mine (96 versus 7)) but talking in your videos was a step too far for you, so I added a survey to one of your videos. The outcome was clear. By far the most people preferred you to talk in the videos. Yeah, I know, you were not happy with my survey🤪

B.t.w. later on I also regretted it, as I had to put a lot more effort to edit the videos, especially the sound.😒

And now? I am still very proud, so proud I write this blog to you.

Between 2015 and 2019 you published 54 videos and more will come. It looks like a lot of people appreciate your videos and 50.016 subscribed to your Youtube channel.


Your hubby🤗😘
