Can I be your Daily Snow Reporter?
★2009/11/28 04:49


So, I’ve applied to a competition so that I can get myself a Best Winter of Your Life in Niseko this year! icon:w_4_snowicon:h_kira02

I’ll have to be the Daily Snow Reporter icon:w_4_snowman if I won. 

Like them..icon:a2_down2

Can I be the one? icon:an_mushi

I’ve never been a reporter..icon:an_c_hiyoko

I’ve no experience at all to present in front of a pro-camera..icon:an_c_hiyoko

(been presenting just for fun in front of my own compact digi-cam though..)

I,…I don’t know whether I can even memorize all the given script and speak properly in front of the camera..icon:an_c_hiyoko

I, I,…I’m worrying…icon:an_c_hiyokoicon:an_c_hiyokoicon:an_c_hiyokoicon:h_sweat01

Not many entered this competition somehow…which means I’ve fewer rivals this time..icon:an_mushi

I’ve uploaded my video on the 14th November 2009, a day before the due date.


 It’s exciting every time the View counts got updated. icon:a2_upicon:h_f02 though very slowly..

Since I’m always just stick to my computer most of the time, I’ve been reloading the page very often to check on the Views..

It was very disappointing at first for it never goes up at all for hours.. (though I know it’s usual..)

And then, about a week later..


All of a sudden, my video is viewed from about 200 views to 2000 viewsicon:mark3_sign03 icon:face4_kao-a17

But WHY is it popular in Korea and India icon:mark3_sign02 instead of Japan icon:mark3_sign02 icon:an_c_hiyoko

Did my video got linked to some websites and got recommended icon:mark3_sign02 icon:an_c_hiyoko

But oh well, as long as my video got popular! icon:face3_kao07icon:h_kira01

I was sooooo excited when it gone up that muchicon:mark3_sign03 

(Although, the winner is not decided just base on the Views or YouTube popularity..) 


about another week later…


My video obtained 8,852 views in such a short period icon:mark3_sign03 
(It’s understandable if I’m already popular in YouTube like Michelle Phan, etc…but I’m NOT icon:face3_kao23) 

And OMG, according to the statistic graph up there, 178 people favorited my video and 185 people rated my video icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face4_kao-a17 

It was really surprising for this happened in just one day! icon:face4_kao-a17


I was getting suspicious though…

Is my video getting popular just purely? icon:an_c_hiyoko

or is this just some YouTube spam? icon:an_c_hiyoko
or like maybe someone did this..? icon:an_c_hiyoko


Anyway, I’m still very excited whatever it is for I was announced as the Winner on the 23rd November 2009icon:mark3_sign01
