Ever since I learned of the DC Fans Channel on YouTube, I said that I wanted to make it a goal of mine to be featured on their channel. I think most people on YouTube have goals and things they’d like to achieve… I have a number of them! But this week, my DC Fans goal became reality when my video featured on their channel. 🙂
I reviewed the Batman comic No Mans Land Volume 1 for the channel, and it was honestly one of the coolest things I’ve been able to do since making videos. I thought they’d just put my video on their stream and it would get some views and maybe I’d get my face out there to some new people… but I didn’t count on any other social media plugs…. lol
Due to good old time zones, I was fast asleep when DC posted the video, and so I woke up in the morning to a text from my boyfriend who had screen capped the DC Comics Instagram account that had a snippet of my video….. my mug… talking about comics… on the DC comics account. Whaaaaaat? There was over 50,000 views on it (WTF!!) and that quickly bought me out of my half sleep, I can tell you that! haha
I then checked my Twitter and my amazing followers were tweeting at me what they’d seen on the DC Comics twitter account and it was all very exciting. If this experience has shown me anything, it’s that I am incredibly lucky to have some of the best Twitter followers anyone could ask for. Some of the best people you’ll find and I am lucky enough to call so many of you my friends. You’re always so supportive and excited for me as well when cool things happen and I love you so much for it.
I’ve also just seen tonight that I am on dccomics.com which I just cannot mentally compute. What is life right now? I don’t even know.
What a week. I am so happy. I feel pretty proud and incredibly grateful. I feel optimistic about the future and I believe that hard work pays off. But now I just have to work harder. And I will. 🙂
Thanks to everyone who tweets me nice things when you honestly don’t even have to – but you do anyway because you’re amazing people with kind hearts. You make my day, everyday.
The DC Fans channel is genuinely the coolest, and I suggest subscribing if you’re into comics and want to discover other people who love comics too. I have subscribed to so many content creators that I have discovered through videos featured on their channel and I think it’s such an amazing way to connect to people.
If you want to check out the video I did for DC Fans, that’d be really cool and you’re also supporting their channel at the same time, so huge hugs from me.
Thanks everyone. x
