KT, YouTube, and an ENDANGERED Partner Contract

Greetings, Good Subscribers.

I received word this week from Google that because my Youtube channel has not reached 4 thousand listening hours in the past 12 month period, I will soon lose my partner contract, and with it the right to monetize and earn royalties from my original music.  I was given a month before they terminate the contract, to try to recitify the situation.  I've been told that should my songs reach that figure, the contract and monetization will be reinstated.  Here's the link:  https://www.youtube.com/user/KariTieger

A social media appeal for more listeners  was made a couple of weeks ago, and the response has been most heartening.  As of this date, the Analytics for this month's (12/23/17-1/19/18) watch time compare quite favorably to last month's, so much so that the monthly total has apparently increased by 268.21% (!).

This is based on 550 minutes (9 hours, 9 minutes) of views, as well as an increase in comments.  I actually earned 35 cents in royalties this month, as compared to 2 cents previously.  This is no small feat, people.  If you were among those who watched Kari Tieger videos this month, I thank you kindly!!

Still and all, I suspect it may not be enough to protect my partner contract and monetization rights, simply because there simply isn't enough time to garner the required listening hours.

However I AM extremely grateful to all of you who have taken the time to listen to my music, and I hope you will continue to do so going forward, as time affords.
