Thanks for watching my videos! 85,600 views in 2015

Thanks to everyone who watches my videos at Janesville GazetteXtra, Facebook and You Tube. Last year (2015) you helped increase  my  viewership 22 % for a total of 85,600 views. Average watch time was one minute, 22 seconds. Total watched minutes were 111,400.
24,000 watched on computers. 21,000 on mobile phones. And 6,627 on tablets.

What surprises me is that although my videos mostly revolve around the Rock River in Wisconsin, each month they are viewed in every state in the Union and 178 countries around the world.  For example, California had 5000 views, the United Kingdom, 4,000 and India, 1,800.

All told, I have made 490 You Tube videos. Lifetime viewership: 230,485. One video about eagles has had 18,723 views.

Thanks again for watching!

Glen Loyd Videos: On our love for family cars


A farmer friend about my age kept his dad's worn out tractor for 20 years because his dad had liked it so much. His father could move the tractor seat aside and drive standing up. His father enjoyed doing so. When my friend finally sold the junk tractor, the buyer restored it because of some special significance it had for him. This is the theme of my video..
