I’m not sure if it’s just me, but why are people so stingy with subscribing?
I mean, it’s not like it costs anything.
People seem to treat subscribing to a channel as though they are selling a part of their soul. It is not that big of a deal, people.
I subscribe to new channels left, right and center. I may not watch all of your videos but when one pops up on my homepage, I will almost definitely check it out.
I’m a small youtuber and I’ve noticed that instead of supporting each other, many other youtubers with less than 1,000 subscribers will not subscribe to you unless you subscribe to them. I have no problem with doing this and helping each other out – it shows teamwork and good faith, however, many of these types of youtubers will leave it a couple of days and then unsubscribe to you.
It’s not Twitter.
People are not looking at how many people you subscribe to and how many are subscribed to you and thinking – ‘oh gosh, they sub to much more than are subbed to them’. If you want, you can keep how many people you are subscribed to as a private affair.
I find this all so bazarre. How people seem to think their subscription is something that they can never get back and so need to think reeeeaaalllly hard before committing to it.
I am not so much talking about viewers in general, as if you are not a youtuber (big or small) you don’t tend to subscribe to someone unless you really love their videos… at least I didn’t when I was purely a viewer. However, when you do become a youtuber, you realise that to most people your subscription is important and you should want to support and make friends with people trying to do and achieve the same as you. Or, at least if you don’t, then don’t expect others to do it for you.
