It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


So here we are the day before the day before Christmas, and we thought we had a mostly quiet day.  But.. as always with us, we found things to do.  Website updates, I have a video to get ready for you all for tomorrow, and Derica is tagging store items.  We also have to wrap gifts and pack for our stay at her Brother’s for family time this season.

We did want to stop for a moment and thank all of you who watch our shows, comment on them, are Patrons of the Channel and are members of our Facebook Group.  We feel honored that so many people are interested in what we do.  It’s pretty amazing too, how far things have come since March 2, 2018 when I hit the “publish video” button for the very first time.

I thought I’d share some numbers with you!

  • We now have 81 Videos on our channel!
  • As I write this, 18,090 people have subscribed to our channel with an average of about 80 new ones every day.
  • In total, there have been nearly 800,000 views of our videos.
  • In total, just about 7.5 million minutes of our videos have been watched.  That means, that for every second our channel has been live, 7 seconds of view time occurred.
  • There was 1.7 million minutes watched in the past 30 days.
  • Our Facebook Group as of this writing has 1039 members and grows by about 20 every day.

We are overwhelmed.  The speed at which City Steading grows is astounding to us.  Thanks to all of you, since without you, our viewers, our fans, friends and family, this wouldn’t be possible.

So this Christmas Holiday, we wish you a very Merry, Happy, Safe, and Mead filled time!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

-Brian and Derica

    Thanks to you both. City-steading is some kind of phenomenon. I don’t subscribe to many channels and am a member of even fewer FB groups, but you guys rock. Best wishes to you both, happy Yule and all the very best for 2019.

    Thank you 2 also. I love your videos and have learnt and enjoyed so much since discovering you guys. Merry Christmas to both (and the cats as well)

    Thank you for making entertaining and educational videos. You tipped the scale for me to start brewing after contemplating it for a long while. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
