I contacted Stein who sent me a recording of him reading my Monday piece. I created a video for it. On September 28, 2008, I uploaded Rick Monday Saves the U.S. Flag to YouTube.
Three years and four months later, it reached 10,000 views! Here is the proof.
Of course, stats can be used in many ways. The average YouTube video gets 800 views, but that number is skewed high by the handful which get millions.
What does it all mean? What is my point? Basically, I am just celebrating a milestone. Nothing more or nothing less. I am so proud and awed by that whole experience. The totality of it all has been great.
