The success of my YouTube Channel and Giveaway January 2016

Hi Folks.

I have not posted for a while and I thought I would get the ball rolling again with this exciting news.  I have unfortunately neglected my blog for a while (not deliberately) as I have been working on establishing my very own YouTube channel Tartantaz Creates, which can be found here on YouTube.   I started this channel in the Summer of 2015 and also joined a group called the Creative Arts Collaboration ( CAC ) on Facebook.  This group has helped me to grow my channel from nothing to now over 100 subscribers.  I am amazed I have gotten as many so quickly, thank you to all my subscribers so far.  Anyway my really exciting news is that because I have reached and gone beyond 100 subscribers I am celebrating with a give away here on YouTube. Where you can win this original Canvas painting. Go watch my video, if you are a subscriber and post a comment giving either a future suggestion or what your favourite video of mine has been so far I will enter you into a draw to win the canvas I create on my video.  I will do the draw on the 27th January 2016 and post a video to announce the winner.  Good luck to all who enter :) There's more...........

 My Giveaway video is part of the CAC January hashtag event which runs from 20th January until the 24th January 2016.  The hashtag event is a group of youtube artists getting together in collaboration and each using the same hashtag in order to make it easier for our viewers to find us rather than relying on the algorithm YouTube uses to decide who sees your video in the search results.  All members of the CAC who join in post a video with the same theme and voila you have an online visual art exhibition :) Its great why not use this months hashtag and see what great art you can find over the next few days.  Now what's even better is that the videos do not go away.  The only thing that stops after the 24th January is that no new art for that hashtag will be added. Here is a list of the hashtags so far.  Use these anytime you like as long as the videos are on YouTube you will find great stuff. Remember and type the symbol # then the rest of the hashtag into the search bar of YouTube and see what pops up.
