I had a wild week on there, though. On Tuesday, a couple of videos came up on my Timehop of when we went to the mall two years prior during a break between some friends' wedding and the reception. We found Dragon's Breath treats there, which are like giant pieces of cereal that are frozen in liquid nitrogen. I thought, hey, those videos would be a good TikTok, and I was more right about that than I ever could have imagined.
As of this writing, it's at 1.2 million views with 78,000 likes and 470 comments, and it just keeps going. Plus I've gained 2,500 new followers or so. I guess it was inevitable, I've made up to a dozen videos in a day so something was bound to eventually click.
The cool part is that the next in my series of videos about reality TV did very well. I've been reposting the others and some of my other favorite older stuff, and it's been cool to see those videos almost instantly get as many views as they did in their original run.
I decided to write about the experience on Medium in the hopes that the post will also get a lot of attention because writers there can make money. I should probably also try to think of other things to write there, I've been in Everett/Snohomish County mode for a long time and it was fun to write about a general interest topic for a change.
