This is the blog post in which I praise fans/general people on youtube.
I know this isn't the case everywhere, but I find over and over that the people in the nerdfighter/harry potter/fiveawesome community are some of the most amazing, wonderful people ever. The comments I receive daily on videos and my blogs and twitter are just - ahh. You guys are so great.
And maybe this is giving me a skewed perception of the world... because I doubt the general masses are as kind of supportive, loyal and helpful as all of you are. But if I enjoy living in this little bubble, so thank you.
It warms my heart when I go to read comments on a new video I've posted and see there is a comment that has been hidden because it already has 17 red thumb downs, and 5-6 comment replies saying things like "If you dont have anything nice to say, go away!"
I can't believe my subscribers would go so far as to look for mean hate comments in my videos and personally tell them off themselves on my behalf. I would never even have to READ mean comments if I didnt want to because my subscribers chase them away with burning torches and pitchforks. But, naturally curious, I usually cant help myself and click them anyway. Youtube has given me tough skin and seeing "ur so ugly get a paper bag 4 ur next vid, slut" just makes me chuckle.
But I am here to tell you about the HATER WHO CHANGED HIS WAYS.
I was reading over comments on "Mrs. Nerimon" and I saw this guy had left a few rather mean, childish comments, and as usual my subscribers had done their best to make him feel like an idiot. What's different about this particular situation is that a few days later, the same guy CAME BACK and left ANOTHER comment saying "Wow, I'm sorry. I realize I was out of line in what I said and apologize for any offense I may have caused."
And he wasn't being sarcastic!
So, comment cops, there IS hope in the world. We can turn haters in care-ers, one username at a time. :D
Also, I received this message on YouTube this morning:
"Sooo there's really not a point to this message, however I stumbled across your blog today and thought you might like something to reply to when you're bored at work. Anyway, have a good day and try not to be bored out of your mind.
I am just overwhelmed with how sweet people can be. That people read in my blog "I'm bored at work and this is where I reply to youtube messages to pass the time" and so someone would think "Okay cool, I'll send her a youtube message then". *love*
I keep hearing about this infamous blogtv show Maureen Johnson held when I was at work (sigh) and I wish I didnt have such a busy life so I could join in the epic fun of regular blogtv hanging-out. :(
I suppose I will just plug Maureen's book and cross my fingers that school, work, album recording, and learning to drive a stick will all step aside and bestow upon me a bit of time with which I can do as I please. :D
