I have met some of my favorite people in the YouTube comment section.
A thing to remember is that there is a person on the other side. Another thing to think about is that we humans are excellent finders and problemsolvers. Therefore, you should be very careful with where you put your focus. I recommend positivity and kindness.
I recently shared a post on Instagram about how I met my girlfriend in the comments of a YouTube video. I had heard stories of people doing that, but never believed it fully until it happened to myself. There are people on the other side of the communication. They can be kind and positive, or they can be bad an harmful. Your own attitude will be the guiding light that will attract like-minded people. The rest you may attract you need to identify and cut out of your life. You only have so much time - and I personally highly prefer to spend that time with people I care for.
Today I realized that I met another friend in the YouTube comments, that made me meet another new friend and it is very exciting. Yesterday I also realized how insanely cool it is to be able to help people in their Pokemon games and get to talk to many different people that way. I reply to comments on YouTube. In fact, I try to get to all of them! And at this point in time, I read and reply to the comments I see in my YouTube Studio App. I am unsure if this will continue like this forever, as my audience grows, but I will always want to interact with people and bring the most value to them as I can.
I hope you enjoyed this post and are having a good weekend.

I did not use Vine to its full potential. I did, however, make this back in the day
It's crazy to think back to now that I'd just take a backflip in the living room like that haha.
I'm planning on making content for V2 and I'm looking forward to see what crazy creative people we will get to see and what new celebrities will come from it!!

Dear Scandinavian Airlines,
My name is Daniel. I am a 20 year old Norwegian and I live in Bergen. I am sending you this open letter to ask for a trip to visit the United States of America this Easters.
I am in a long distance relationship and I really want to see my girlfriend again before the summer. I am currently in my last semester in high school and so this would be my only option to travel until late June. I have flown with you 16 times in a row now the past 1.5 years with great satisfaction. I know 4 months will go by, we will make it. No question.
At the same time, the value and appreciation I would get from a trip now, is the reason why I am reaching out. The YouTube channel this video is uploaded to is over 4 years old. Through my videos I have helped and entertained over 100’000 people. Over the course of these years I have never asked my audience for money to pay for anything. I sold my video games and what I had of value to buy my computer and needed equipment.
I believe strongly in bringing my audience value, always, and let opportunities and benefits come second. I will never partner with anyone who would want me to move away from my values. While being focused on my studies, it’s difficult to save up money for further education as well as travelling.
I like your company and would like to recommend people to fly with you in the future. To explore the world. And meet new, important people in their lives.
Daniel Hammer, A True Traveler
Pinned comment on the video:
I’m aware of Scandinavian Airlines’ strict policies they adopted in 2013 to prevent corruption and bribery. Due to this, I was not actually going to make this video. Writing this “letter” was a way for me to process my feelings of being so far away from my loved one. Yesterday, I wanted to read it up to my girlfriend to let her know how was feeling and she had tears in her eyes when I was done reading. She said it was because she miss me deeply. I had initially thought that if I was to make a video of this letter that I made, I would ask her about it first and hear what she thought of the idea. After I read it to her yesterday she said it wouldn’t do any harm to try.
I wanted to include my audience in this story, which is why I decided to make it a video like this, instead of sending a letter directly. It is also 5 weeks away and formal communication tend to take a long time. Including my audience in the process is what felt to me as the right thing to do, if I am ever to work together with Scandinavian Airlines or any other company in the future for that matter.

Ask to pay (raise money) vs. give the option to support is not the same.
Whether or not people want to support me through services like Patreon is totally optional and it would not have any impact in my ability to continue with content creation. The $5000 I spent on equipment, $100 every month spent on services and software and the hundreds and hundreds of hours that has been put into this channel is rarely, if ever mentioned. This is a subtlety that I hope you are able to identify.
A special thanks to Fabster Cola and Bendu from our Discord server NPC HQ for helping with translating this video to Dutch and Spanish respectively.
If you want to know more about what the rose means you can have a look at this Instagram post: https://www.instagram.com/p/BehdL0oAkd_/?taken-by=nirthpanter
nirthpanter.net has been going through some big changes this week and I also want to start writing more. There are more resources to be found now, I want to review more books and also add more things to the RECOMMENDED page in the coming time.
I used to have this page called Hall of Fame where I wrote about people I admired or appreciated. I have still a HALL OF FAME page, but this is now the archive of all live viewer battles done on the nirthpanter YouTube channel. My solution is that I'd like to make a weekly blog post called Feature Friday where I feature 1-3 YouTube creators I think are doing a good job or that has an interesting story behind them. I will start the first article hopefully this coming Friday (16th of February), but I have a lot to do this week at school and so we'll se how that goes.
Next Saturday, February 17, it's my birthday and I'd like to do a longer birthday stream. This will start at 6:00 PM GMT+1 / 12:00 PM EST. I am unsure completely what I'd like to do for this livestream, but I will have a birthday hat on and I'm likely going to do viewer battles.
Have you had a look at the changes on the website this week? @Flipside on Discord helped me out with looking at some details and I appreciate that. I hope you all have had a good weekend.

I'm passing 10'000 Subscribers on my nirthpanter YouTube channel today. I started at 0 Subscribers November 2013.
Bring value to your audience and good will come out of that. I am excited that I've been able to help and entertain so many people the past +4 years. In fact, the channel has been viewed by more people than I will ever meet in person for my whole life. That is crazy to me. It was almost exact at the same time: 10000 Subscribers and 4M total channel views. Hard work an dedication, combined with the intent to bring your audience value is the way to go.
I've added a screenshot of my 2nd channel. I intend to share experiences, thoughts and other things I would not do elsewhere across my profiles. The pretty colors are actually a picture of a sunset my girlfriend saw in the US. I asked if I could use it as my Channel Art and I'm happy I could use it like this.
The funny thing is that I don't feel I've even started. What I like a lot is to make videos that can help people somehow or teach them something useful. I really like video editing and at this point in time I rarely play around in Adobe Premiere Pro, which is the video editing software I use. I look forward to 2018. I hope GAME FREAK will be happy with the game they are developing for the Nintendo Switch and that I can continue to making useful video guides on YouTube.
I plan on completely redo the whole strategy. That I will make video guides like I've done in the past won't change. I would like to be more consistent with expanding my BEST VIDEOS playlist and also with the livestreams. I feel bad for the lack of effort I've put into my Patreon page and am working on how to fix that.
Thank you for reading,
I decided to make a video thanking the YouTube user named a Bear for his nice feedback. Today I have been a bit frustrated over the fact that over 50 of my videos have been marked as 'not advertiser friendly' and I've put in a lot of time and effort into the making of this video. In the video I asked and hoped that I have brought you any value with what I have done.
Thank you for reading!
Do you have a mission in life? A dream in life you want to accomplish? Today I wanted to share my own personal goal and start a discussion around this topic here on Facebook and hopefully get to talk to some new people.
It's been a personal goal of mine, the past 5 years, that one day I want to become the best parent I can possibly be. I am working hard on myself to get educated on important things in life and strive to become as open-minded and respectful towards others as I can.
Life itself is an interesting phenomenon and one better make the most out of it while it lasts. I want to become a good parent and have a nice family. Being a content creator will allow me to work from home and bring people value through my video content around my passion.
My three biggest interests are YouTube, video editing and Pokémon. These work very well together in content creation. I aspire to become the best Pokémon video guide creator of all and on my journey towards that goal I want to help, entertain and inspire as many as I can. I have had an interesting life so far and I don't think that will change. It's about the journey and right now I am enjoying doing my best in making my dream come true.
If you have a dream you try to accomplish in life, feel free to share that in the comments of this post and I'd be very happy to talk to you. Have a nice day, morning or evening depending on where you are in the world!

I've recently wanted to change up my way of going about Patreon. I'd like it to be a place for some previews as for what is to come, but I make my posts public so that everyone can see. I think Patrons are the only ones who can comment on those directly, so if you have any feedback you can hit me up on twitter, on Discord on by my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The reason is that I'd like to give back more to those who make it possible for me to make more and better quality content for everyone. That there are currently 4 people who believe in my work to the point of wanting to support me financially means a lot. I'd like to show proper appreciation for that.
Right now there is a post over at Patreon discussing the idea of having a Pokemon Trivia series on my channel and I'd like some input on what peolpe would think of that. I have 5 topics that I'd like to make into videos and I also want to make videos based on suggestions from you!
At last I'd like to challenge myself and invite other content creators and ask them if they'd like to work together on a pair of videos. I'd like to work together with Ozzymitsu, Barnaby, Mr Buddy and Bird Keeper Toby at some point.
If you are to head over to Patreon and read the post I'd be very happy!
Thank you so much for reading!
I've secretly been waiting and been really excited for the day I would buy an upgraded licence for TubeBuddy and today was that day! I thank @robertoblake for the discount code: robertosbuddy to let me get TubeBuddy at a 20% discount!
TubeBuddy is a tool that I will have a lot of use in. I already use it to research future video topics and decide what the best tags for my videos can be. The reason why I waited to buy a STAR LICENCE before now is that I haven't had that much use of the BULK EDITING features that it offers. Now as I want to spend more time making how to videos this is essential for making it possible for me to produce videos faster.
TubeBuddy recently made an affiliate program for its services and by clicking the image below you will make use of my affiliate link: https://www.tubebuddy.com/npc
Finally I got to sit down and make another Episode in the Pokemon Explained series! This one has been a necessity to make because of all the questions regarding happiness and friendliness in Pokemon. I hope people will recieve this video well! There have been some neat visual upgrades in the making of this video that you will hopefully enjoy.
The next project is to make a video about Shiny Pokemon in the Pokemon Gold and Silver games!
