A few days ago we saw our YouTube numbers start to rise a little bit – we knew a family video must have been posted somewhere, so a small search party was assembled and we scoured the internet. We were ecstatic to see that Shay Carl had twittered about us, which led to a huge jump of 200 subscribers over the next 20 hours. For us to have reached 500 subscribers was unreal.
As we talked about the excitement from his Twitter post and started to think about how we could celebrate our “500th subscriber”, our brother Jake called us and said, “Something is going on. I don’t know what’s happening but go log in to our account.”
We ran over to the computer to see 1,000… 1,050…. 1,100…. every single time we refreshed we saw a jump in numbers. Words cannot explain how confused, shocked, and excited we were….
At first we thought it was YouTube filtering from the night before and assumed it was all a crazy “Shaytard” catch up, but the comments kept flowing real time. “Shay sent me.” “Shaytards unite!” “Ha! Look at your subscribers!” “You are getting 25 every minute!” It was a mad search for WHAT WAS GOING ON!
An HOUR later…
Jake finally landed on the Shaytard blog and saw our link posted in his sidebar. That must have been it, right? It was crazy seeming that 25 people a minute are reading that link and subscribing, but ok! That’s our answer!
….and then we watched his video. (7 min. 56 sec.)
Some of us yelled (at the computer), some stood quietly with their jaws on the floor, and others denied it was happening. We cannot express how incredible the last 48 hours have been.
Thank you Shay Carl, we will WELCOME the chance to stand around you and sing any time.
Thank you to all the Shaytards!
And thank you Claire and Katie – we owe you everything – fans from the beginning.
