MILESTONES & THANKSGIVING
Yesterday, we hit 4,000 watch hours on YouTube:
First, I received this in my email inbox on Monday, 4 May
Then, before I could post about it (since I had to deal with some migration issues to a YouTube Brand Account), I received another email today:
Then, I received this on Tuesday, 5 May - completely did not expect this to happen so soon!
My channel is officially part of the YouTube partner program, i.e I'm able to monetize!
Last week, we hit a milestone of 3k subscribers, and raised close to $3k for The Invictus Fund with an Instagram live, then what I thought would take the whole of 2020 to achieve - hitting 4,000 watch hours to be eligible for monetization - was done in 1 month. The approval process after that was supposed to take up to a month, but it was approved in a day?! What?? How?? Seriously only by God’s grace, and in His perfect time.
Thank you all for sharing, watching, and enabling this: it couldn’t have happened without you tuning in to my It’s Live! with Miss Lou live stream shows every week and watching all the other videos on my channel!
Praise God for His guidance and provision throughout this Covid-19/Circuit Breaker period, which could have easily broken Daniel and I, but we were confident and hopeful because we knew we could trust in Him.
God has blessed us by prompting fellow believers, some of whom we’ve never met, to reach out with love gifts; He has blessed us by establishing our steps so firmly in this fog.
Always thankful for the Loudanclear team: We miss having Shane around to troubleshoot and figure everything out together, but we're thankful he's had our backs and working remotely all this while!
This is just the beginning of our journey together! Exciting times ahead 🎉
