Youtube – it's a beast.

In fact, it's a HUGE part of how I've been able to build my Biology Blog.

Here's the problem – since becoming a University Professor, I haven't had much time to make Youtube Videos. Ok, I think a better way of saying it is that I chose to spend my time doing other things.

Listen to This Episode

Well, it's time to get back to using Youtube, making videos, and increasing my Youtube Footprint, but in doing so, I want to make sure I'm getting the most out of what I'm doing there.

  • James Stone says:

    Hi Leslie, what an awesome episode. I love the idea that you were up late at night trying to keep quiet before flying out to your conference. In this episode you mention that you check with of your youtube subscribers are not in your g+ circles and that you try and engage with them. How are you able to discover this. I have only found a list of my subscribers and I can open up their g+ profiles, if they have one, one by one, but I was wondering if there is a better way.

    • Hi James, You can find it by going to your Youtube Settings, then clicking on Community, then Fans. From there you can add them to your circles. All the best!

    • James Stone says:

      Hi Leslie, thanks for your response. I couldn’t find anything official on YouTube but apparently one needs 5000 subscribers before they enable that functionality. I will keep at it and again, I really enjoyed this episode. Can’t wait for the next one!

    • Ahh man, thanks for pointing that out. I didn’t know that.

    • Komang Budiasih says:

      Very interesting article, a new knowledge for me. I’m new here, thank you for sharing knowledge.

  • Monish says:

    thanks for sharing this Leslie! I started looking at my youtube vidoes – and YES! I am getting a good amount of traffic there. Youtube is like an opportunity mine – most people dont know how to make good videos at all!

    Quick question for you: you link to episode 18 in your article, but the link is broken. I had a hard time finding it on your site’s search. can you link me to your previous youtube page?

  • Brent Jones says:

    YouTube is a definite beast when done right! I know it’s tough to keep up on making new content, but go for it… it’s also one of the quickest ways to gain exposure!
