Well, it seems that the prophecies of the House of Yahweh were wrong: No nuclear war began yesterday. So, there they are now, with egg on their face.
Of course, I hadn't planned on anything to post today, just in case they were right.
Frankly, I found myself wondering this morning if this blog is worth even keeping up. Of course, I'll continue to post whether or not anybody reads it - I'm just sick in that regard.
What has me thinking this is my experience on YouTube over the last couple of weeks. I posted my first video there on September 1, and have since posted a few more. Those videos have received a total of 2,117 views (as of this morning), and already 30 people have signed up to "subscribe" to my next videos. (Click here to see my "channel" if you're interested.)
By way of contrast, this blog has only received 554 hits in the same period (September 1-12), and my subscriber base is a bit less than 30. I've been writing this blog for five-and-a-half years. I've been on YouTube less than two weeks.
I haven't fully decided what to make of this data yet, or where it will lead me in my writing, etc. While the videos I've posted so far have not been very deep (deliberately not), I am impressed by the ability to reach so many people is such a short time.
A friend the other day told me that YouTube was a "time sink." I agree. But I'm fascinated never-the-less.
What about you? Are you the only person left who actually reads? Have you started watching YouTube? Love it or hate it, the revolution is being streamed right now.
