Thanks YouTube

There is nothing nicer than coming home to see hundreds of emails from YouTube. It generally means that they have featured your videos in some capacity or other and people are leaving comments or, better still, subscribing to your channel.

So far, three Stuck in Vermont videos have gotten some YouTube loving. Not on the main homepage mind you (that might cause me to have a conniption fit) but on the subsection pages. It is a grand feeling to watch a video's hits go from 200 to 39,000 in the course of a day. Jesus, is this what it feels like to be LisaNova!?

This weekend, YouTube featured Stuck in Vermont 36: Rosie's Girls on their DIY video page. They also put Rosie's Girls on the Director Video sidebar. The spotlight led to many nice comments, some creepy comments, some Spam and some new subscribers.

I even met the uber nice advice columnist for Elle, Ask E Jean whom my sister has been reading for many years. What a sweetie (even if it is just her assistant)!

Thanks YouTube for all the awesome work you do and for giving the Rosie's Girls some attention. Even if many of the commenters assumed the video was referring to Rosie O'Donnell instead of Rosie the Riveter. Sigh...

PS I ran into Tiffany, the Executive Director of VT Works for Women (the group that organizes Rosie's Girls) at the Harry Potter book release late Friday night (what a madhouse, there will be a video). Turns out she is the sister of the owner of The Flying Pig Bookstore. Small world!
