    Never ever in my wildest dreams did ever think I'd have actual fans. People that take time out of their busy lives to watch me. I don't get it, but it's brilliant. I spent probably an hour last night answering questions on reddit from a regular viewer, that was just interested in how I started and such like. Was just really nice to talk to someone like that.

    I'm not a big youtuber by any stretch, but it's still a good feeling knowing you have at least in some part, impacted someone's life in a positive way.

    A subscriber also sent me a picture of a recipe of mine that his wife had made, all the way from America!

    How do you guys converse with fans/ subscribers outside of youtube?

    That's so cool! It always freaks me out a bit whenever someone says something kind of fan-like about my channel. I always think I'm just messing around with the camera and such, and then someone says, "I'm such a fan," and they mean it, and it just stuns me.

    i have my snapchat open to all viewers who want to chat, and i've had 3 or 4 people so far have a long, nice conversation about various topics, all very excited of the prospect of talking to me directly. seemed very odd at 100 subscribers.

    I don't really have fans on my channel, I try to make a point of making anyone who watches my content into friends :)

    I realise that that might comes across slightly creepy ahaha I don't mean it in a 'I hunt them down and lock them in my basement until they say we're friends' kind of way ahaha!

    It means I've made the connection of my thoughts to their brain. I'm happy when people say I'm great. After all that was the plan right? It wasn't an accident

    I don't have many subscribers at the moment myself so I just find myself talking with them through the comments or sometimes my Facebook (not personal) page if they happen to send me a message or comment on there.

    If I ever had more then I could handle then I'd probably do some type of live-stream where I can talk to them all directly at the same time.
    But regardless it's nice when people say how much of a fan they are of your work and dedication. =]

    I have one specific fan of mine who is DIE-HARD. They DMed me on Twitter and let me know how much they liked my content and were a fan and I replied without thinking it'd really mean anything. Well a moment later I creeped on their Twitter and saw that they tweeted about how they were freaking out over the fact I responded. I was like honestly so surprised, humbled, and touched all at the same time. They like ALL my Tweets. Comment on EVERY video. We once ran into each other in a specific persons Livestream and they freaked out I was in there and started quoting a specific video of mine in the chat that they loved. And recently they made a fan account on YouTube specifically to me.

    Like this specific person will never know how much I truly appreciate them and sometimes it feels like the only reason I'm still making content is because this specific person shows so much support.

    Just having one person like that, especially for a smaller creator (229 subs) like me, it means the world and more.

    I feel the same way. I dont have many subs but just the fact that anyone would like my videos, considering its all one big experiment, is satisfaction enough for me. I've never really created anything that got much recognition so anything is a real trip for me.
