Hi y’all 😌
My little TikTok account has been getting some traffic! I’ve had 3 videos get over 1,000 views in under 24 hours!
2 of them reached over 2,000 views in under 24 hours!
I had two videos that were doing well and I was afraid to actually post a third video and of it being poetry because I was afraid it would get so few views but it actually was getting a lot of views too
I told myself it was a bad idea to even drop poetry when I had another video doing good, but I had 2 videos doing good and I didn’t want my freestyle spoken word to flop, but it actually did really good, so thank you ✍️
I totally can’t get the ocean to eat the worlds most famous beach again, but according to statistical reports, Daytona Beach is going to be getting some major flooding over the next 30 years 👀
It took everything I had to get off the ramp and get into the ocean knowing how strong the tide was
How much of the beach it had ate
Orange warning signs placed everywhere
I had the fears
And, not only of the tide pulling me away into an oceanic void
But potentially what the tide could be bringing in with it
There was so little beach left
It was all ocean
And I wasn’t prepared for this because it wasn’t on the news (I guess they didn’t want to deter any of the tourists coming out here knowing the beach wasn’t really available)
I’ve been out here almost 5 years and I’ve never seen the ocean eat the beach before
So the next day when I went out (twice), both in the morning and afternoon, I spoke to an official (that morning) who said this was not a normal thing for our beach
The lifeguard the day before also said he had never seen the beach this way before (and he was younger than I but a lifeguard on duty)
Every stranger that I spoke with passing by also said they had never seen the beach this way
Some were visiting and some lived here and nobody knew that the beach was this way, it was all shocking to us, to the locals and visitors
But we always have some activities going on so I’m gonna start sharing more of my city when I can
I’m still fighting for my life
I’m also waiting for the second computer to arrive and I really hope this one’s gonna work out, otherwise I’m increasing my budget a little bit and I may just go after a brand new laptop
My little clip on microphone is soon to arrive 💪
I’ll be able to use that with my spoken word and all of my videos basically
I mean, it says it’s compatible with an iPhone but I don’t even know how to buy hot chocolate 🙄
There’s so much gaslighting on advertising
To be honest, I think my brain interpreted it as being hot chocolate made from oats 🙄
My stats on TikTok are booming – just in the last 28 days, my videos have had over 38 shares and 72 comments!! 👍👍
Here’s some charts
(But TikTok didn’t even notify me that any of my videos had even hit 2K views, so I guess they don’t think that’s good, I guess I need to reach like what 10,000 views in under 24 hours?)
Well I think it’s good, I do!! I do!
Especially because I didn’t pay to play and it’s all organic traffic or at least what the algorithm is allowing you to see
The more people who view it in the FYP (For You Page) the more the algorithm will show it to more people on the FYP
I’ve heard other creators say that once you start paying to play, you have to keep it up if you want your content to get viewed
I’m dying and I just want to write and share videos of my city, my poetry, my end of the world
I’m mostly retired/disabled
My heart and lung are still recovering (and that isn’t even what my disabilities are for)
Oh stats!!! The TikTok! 🤪
Mostly plus signs on everything! 😌
It’s been amazing getting some new followers with my new content that I’ve put out
I appreciate all of my followers and they are really hard to get (I am very outspoken and do not follow a set schedule)
My hashtag #PoeEternal has over 7,000 views!! 7.2k views on TikTok! 👀
TikTok is set up like a gambling system, all social media is. I don’t pay to play.
I get frustrated, holy frustration.
But this is the first week any of my videos hit 1000 views in under 24 hours.
And then another
And then another
3 videos with over 1000 views in under 24 hours 🥰
Two of those videos reached over 2000 views in under 24 hours 😎
I’ve never had any of my videos reach 1000 views after several weeks posted but now I’ve had three videos get over 1000 views in under 24 hours
I thank you
And to dig a little deeper
My first spoken word video that reached over 1000 views in under 24 hours, has had over two hours of air time (that’s longer than a feature film)
It’s short, but someone is enjoying it 🥰
I had to find my courage to stop screaming long enough to film it
And this video of the ocean eating the worlds most famous beach, has had over 12 hours of airtime!!! Over 1800 people have seen it, and it has had 5 shares!!! 🥰
It says there’s even more stats to view if I do it from a computer, but I don’t have a computer right now (I bought one and I hope it’s gonna work out otherwise I’m probably gonna step out of the Walmart marketplace)
My other trending video has over 8 hours of airtime! 😍
My little feet are making some tiny waves over on TikTok (I don’t pay to play)
I don’t get paid or make any money from my videos
I am not being monetized
I am just a black sheep
I am trying to get a laptop in my life so I can start sharing more of my crazy city and life
There is always an event or something going on here
And every day I’m dying
I don’t do a lot of socializing but I like to do a lot of writing
I’m buying tiny upgrades and thank you so much for watching and reading my stuffs!!
The upgrades are coming!!
I love shopping online but I’ve gotten used to maybe needing to take two or three tries to get what I need
I’m also a Leo who wants the best of everything at a bargain
I was born this way 🤓
Walmart says it can take up to two weeks to get my money back for the first laptop I bought (and returned) so you know my head is already in a spin 🤯
Can anybody recommend a laptop that is not an Apple?
Because android was bought out by the illuminati and you can’t even uninstall Facebook from their products, I’m not going down that road 👀
I am extremely hard to reach these days, I was about to get rid of my smart phone and my TV
Disassociating and writing is the only way I’m getting through the next decade 👀
Uhm, but “April 2029/ the final time / the end my friend is not near / the hour/ in fact is quite here” (-) Saint Petey
I’m turned half zombie and I have a skeleton key to heaven and hell
I bought some lights from Target and I might get those hung up this century
Tiny upgrades but things the writer needs
And, I am hoping the audience too xo
So FYI, still waiting on the 2nd laptop to arrive
And the little clip on mic with wind muff
Hope to do more videos at the beach and park
Absolutely am not expecting such high view counts in my life again
The expectations remain low
30 views means it’s worth keeping out
Sometimes I’ll spend four hours making a video and it will sit at zero views for two days
And I can just visualize myself jumping off a fucking bridge
Or pay to play
Feels the same
I avoid both
So the views feel even more special to me
I love you!!! 🤓
If you’re still on my Patreon, I’ll be pushing out your rewards this week hopefully!
I’m still working on them! 😎
Your support keeps my blog and videos advertisement free!!! Thank you!! 💪✍️💪
(I appreciate your subs and tips/donations too)
I think I may celebrate today and go get some ice cream from an actual ice cream shop 🍦🍧🍨🍦(for having 3 videos do good according to my standards) 🤪
Because the Atlantic ocean is not cold yet
Florida is summer still during most hours (most)
The nights are getting chilly
I can’t wait to show you more of my city, but I don’t know if it’s going to be as exciting as the Atlantic swallowing the worlds most famous beach exciting, but there still fun things to do!!
Our city never sleeps!
We didn’t even close our doors for the pandemic!
And the governor of Florida absolutely does not agree with anything the President of the United States says!
So the governor continues to write laws against what the president is saying and it’s the wild wild West out here in the deep south
It’s the end of the world, I love you 💕
