My Youtube Diary | May 2017

I’ve noticed how my compulsion to log into the virtual world that is Second Life (excessively) has been replaced somewhat by Youtube. Being curious about just how much I had watched during the month of May, I opened up my web browser’s history and took a look there.

From this I conclude that I watched more than 100 videos, but less than 200. Certainly on average 3+ videos a day*.

Most days I would watch at least something, and I peaked at around 10 videos. They must have been short ones.

I would say that over half were informative, ranging from short documentaries, or TEDx talks and the like, to some more lengthy seminars. Some on psychology, some on physics, some on astronomy, some conspiracy theories, and some on diet, nutrition and health. There was some music, and some silliness too; like “is pulling a wheelie bad for your motorbike?” (I don’t ride a motorbike, let alone do wheelies). There was some celebrity nonsense, and in general probably far too much “why did I waste x-minutes watching that?”

*What I don’t know from the review of my browser history is how long each video was that I watched, or how much time I spent watching Youtube overall. For this I plan to actively keep a Youtube Diary for the month of June for which I will keep a record of show lengths. However, I am seeking to curb my viewing, or at least make something more of what I watch in some way or another, rather than passively consuming.

From my browser history, in order to take stock of my habit, I typed up each video that was worth noting as I scrolled through. I think there are around 20 that I haven’t watched yet as they sit amongst my browser’s many saved tabs but here is that list (if you’re curious about a particular item on the list just paste it into Youtube’s search box and it should come up):

  1. I ought to do a similar thing with Facebook: hours spent on there, number of posts which wound me up, number of useful dialogues etc. The trouble is, there’s too much stuff out there and most of it seems interesting or worthwhile, but I don’t spend enough time taking it in and pondering it

    • Good idea. I guess I could do a post on my Top 5 Youtube Videos from last month… although, I might end up watching some again >.<
