Why are YouTube comments so… nice?

Hello!

A nice old fashioned written post for a change! At the time of writing, my YouTube channel has had 1838 views, and I’ve got 45 subscribers. I’m really pleased with the progress. On average, my videos get around 35 views each. But, something strange has started to happen – I’m developing a returning audience! And they seem to be a thoroughly pleasant bunch too. This is a bragging post that’s for sure, but I thought it would be nice to archive some of the fantastic comments. I make an effort to reply to each comment, which can be a bit fiddly through the Android Phone App, so apologies to any I’ve messed up!

In response to my “Packing for the holidays” video:

“Are you really going on holiday? Have a good one :)”

“Have a nice holiday !”

“have a good one dude xx”

Glad to see someone is finding the content useful – that’s my sole motivation – I’ve no intention of monetizing this thing!

“Thank you a lot, great video, Lambda function syntax was mystery for me for a long time.”

And some genuine content love! Thanks guys 😀

“About to finish you channel marathon and suddenly, another great video here! Oh dear…”

“You sir, deserve more views, subscribers and likes. I’m pretty sure this channel is going to be way more popular in the next couple of months or years.”

“I’ll be disappointed if your channel doesn’t end up pretty big. If it isn’t, that only reflects today’s lazy hobbyists. I’m driven by the thing itself, and only part of the motivation is directed toward my videos, but I can see you’re really trying with the video production.”

And yes, these are people I don’t know. I must confess at first I thought it may be a buddy or family member just trying to support the channel, but they are legitimate. Except for the SPAM comments! I don’t get many and oddly they’re always from strange music channels.

Anyway, I’ll finish this post off with a link to someone else video. I must confess, I never considered this sort of thing when I started out in January – Of course, I’ll return the favor!!!
