I like knowing that other people like what I create. The videos are fun to make, but seeing the view counter go up is fun too. I've gotten up to 15k views on a video. My average is 7.2k.
I want to gather an audience, but I'm not sure how. My most popular videos fall into 3 or 4 different categories. It's tricky to tell what people like.
How do you gather fans?
