I am always asking readers of my blog and viewers of my crafting podcast to subscribe to my Youtube channel. As an avid podcast viewer myself, I have also subscribed to a fair number of channels over there. Recently, however, I noticed I was not receiving notifications.
At first, I thought people were just not updating their channels, but then it just seemed to be like no one was updating any more. This brought me over to my own channel and I started poking around and noticed that under the subscription link, you can see all the channels you subscribe to on Youtube. Along with a list of those channels, there is also a column with a box that says “send me updates.” Yikes!
You guessed it. Most of the channels I had subscribed to did not have that box selected! I don’t know if this is new or not because at one point I was getting update notifications from these channels and had no idea that “send me updates” box even existed!
So PLEASE! Check all your YouTube subscriptions right away. You are probably missing all kinds of update notifications and, like myself, did not know you have to also select this box so that you can get them.
