On May 11th, I posted my first proper Summer 2014 LEGO set review to kick off the big release season. In the short time since then, I've published over 90 additional reviews, plus about 30 other videos of MOCs & hauls & comparisons & such. Never before, in my entire life, have I produced so much work product so quickly.
In these 5 weeks & change, viewers like you have watched a net of over 3,600 weeks (around 70 years) worth of construction toy video footage from me, and attention rates (how long folks stay watching each video) are the highest I've ever seen them. This week we passed 100 million total views, and statistical aggregation sites now report that y'all are watching my videos fully twice as frequently as the next similar channel on YouTube.
The work has been difficult, and I've even pulled some true all-nighters along the way, but every single indicator is telling me to just keep it up. Best of all, even though I'm putting a tremendous amount of effort into this stuff, I'm still enjoying it and looking forward to what's next.
This evening I filmed reviews for the last batch of Summer 2014 products I had on hand. There are still two more series of LEGO sets yet to come (Hero Factory & Friends), and Mega Bloks will add almost 30 sets to the queue with exciting new Halo and Call of Duty releases. Nevertheless, I see light at the end of the tunnel, and it is rapidly getting brighter. Calmer times are coming again; times to disassemble sets, sort parts, and best of all, go absolutely bonkers making MOCs! W00t!
