I know this tag is basically exclusively done on YouTube, but even though I don’t post YouTube videos (yet), I still thought this would be fun to share since I’ve been an avid watcher for so many years!
1. Do you subscribe right away when you find a new channel/video? Or try a few videos first?
It depends on how much time I have! If I have an hour to kill, I’ll probably watch a few videos before subscribing, and if it’s on a playlist like my “declutters to watch”, I’m watching just one video and moving on. If I don’t have much time, I’ll subscribe and then add the videos that pop up in my subscription feed to my watch later list; from there, if I don’t like them I’ll just unsubscribe again.
2. Does the “make sure you subscribe” mantra ever sway you to subscribe?
Unfortunately, no! I rarely go outside of my subscription feed anymore (not enough time), so I’m obviously already subscribed to them, and I just don’t have the time to sort through push notifications.
3. How many channels do you have the notification bell turned on for?
None. I try to be pretty diligent on paying attention to the people I subscribe to, so I notice when I’m not seeing their videos. If I feel like I have less videos than normal in my feed, I’ll usually go to their page specifically to make sure I’ve watched all the recent videos.
4. Do you watch every video from your subscription feed, or only your favorites?
Usually everything! Unless it’s a video that I’m really not interested in, they all go to my watch later playlist to be watched when I have time.
