Where We’ve Been & Where We’re Going // 2018 Year In Review

Reflecting on 2018

Well, we made it. It’s the last video of the year and 2018 has been completely nuts. I feel like a totally different person living a totally different life than I was twelve months ago. I thought it would just be kind of fun to take a look at where we’ve been, where we’re at, and where we’re going on this channel.

Your Feedback Matters

I really want to make this a collaboration with you since you’re such an important part of what makes this channel move forward. So here’s what I need you to do in the comments section. I’ve pinned a comment to the top. It has a couple of questions that you can answer. All you need to do is go down to the comments section, copy that comment, paste it in your own comment, and fill in the blanks. I want to get a conversation going because I want to hear about your experience with me and with this channel and I want to hear about where you’d like to see things go in the next year.

2018: A Year of Discovery and Growth

2018 to me was a year of discovery and growth, specifically on this channel. It was really the point where things transitioned from me trying to be a vlogger into more camera photography videography-based content. I started this channel originally wanting to do more vlog content and just really connect with people, sharing my day-to-day experience. My goal has always been to keep things positive and encouraging so that everyone, no matter where you are, no matter who you are, you can get involved and you can become part of the community.

Subscriber Growth and Engagement

The deeper and deeper that I got into this camera videography photography world, I found that’s all I really wanted to talk about and do. So, the content naturally transitioned from vlogging into this more photo-centric kind of channel. The subscriber growth on this channel has been a bit overwhelming, and I’m just so happy that some people are out there connecting with this content and really just enjoying the stuff that I’m putting out into the world.

Milestones and Achievements

At the beginning of 2018, the channel started with 604 subscribers, and now finishing off the year, the channel is pushing towards 24,000 subscribers, which is literally the population of my hometown. I posted my first lens review and it blew up by my standards at the time. This channel now has 1.25 million views. I met so many amazing creators on this platform and I even got the chance to collaborate with a handful of them. Most importantly, this year I had a ton of fun making videos, and the general feedback that I’ve been getting from my audience is that you guys have been enjoying it too.

Looking Forward to 2019

So where do we go from here? How do we make sure that 2019 is even better than 2018 was? First of all, I plan to press on with what I’ve already started on this channel: more gear reviews, more tutorials, more tips and tricks, and just more value for the community. I’m getting more opportunities to team up with brands, and in 2019, one of my goals is to try and make sure that in those deals, I work out something to get some value for you guys, whether that be a promotion or a free trial. I also want to be teaming up with more brands to do giveaways because you guys seem to really like that and you’re always asking me for it.

Not only do you want to make sure you’re keeping an eye on the description box because that’s where I’ll be putting these promotions, but also if you head over to my website at DonnaDidIt.com, you can sign up to be part of the Donna Did It Notification Squad. YouTube has got a lot of flack over the last year for not showing subscribers the videos from the channels they subscribe to, and on other social medias, it’s kind of hit or miss whether you see what I’m posting, so I started the Donna Did It Notification Squad to be able to tell you guys when I have new videos, promotions, sales, and awesome team-ups with brands that you guys are gonna get something out of.
