a million subscribers

14 Million Subscribers

First off, thank you all so very much for getting the channel to 14 Million Subscribers. That’s beyond anything I ever would have imagined when I started out. It’s crazy and it’s very humbling to think people enjoy what you do enough to do that. So thank you!

I think this year is going to be great! It’s already off to a great star and I’m more motivated and eager to make great things than I have been in a while. I don’t want to just say that and then give up on it a few weeks into the year, I truly mean it when I say that I want to do better and be happier this year. Time to stop letting things get to me so much and just have fun with what I do and make you guys my priority! That’s why I started all of this and it’s what I want to keep remembering as time goes on, the numbers may get bigger all the time but the morals and goals of the channel stay the same. To make you guys laugh and smile and hopefully spread some joy into the world :) 

I love you all and I can’t ever repay you for what you’ve done for me but by golly I can sure try! Thank you for not only being here day after day but for also keeping me humble and grounded. This community is one of the best on youtube and I don’t say that lightly to pander or inflate egos, I really mean it! Time and again you all prove how loving and welcoming you are and that truly means a lot to me! 

Keep being awesome!

Prepare for a sappy post. I plugged in my keyboard just for this.

Firstly, I’m very sorry @therealjacksepticeye for the horrible attempt at messy hair and facial hair. Sorry it’s late too. I’ve been drawing this since about 10am yesterday (GMT)

Congratulations on reaching 14 million subscribers! You make so many people happy on a daily basis and I look up to you for that. Your personality is just contagious and you are just the nicest person I know. The community we have all built is the most loving, accepting community and I am so happy to be a part of it.
I’ve been through a lot of **** recently and you have kept me going through it and I’m sure a lot of other people feel the same way.
Not only did you help me through some really tough times but have also helped me realise what I want to do with my life (without knowing it of course).
I realised recently that I just want to make people happy and the thought of anything else doesn’t make me look forward to the future so I started a YouTube channel and with that, I hope to make a community as loving and accepting as yours and to raise as much money as humanly possible for charity. Even if it takes me 3 years to even get one subscriber, I won’t want to do anything else.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sean, and thank you to the community for being so darned awesome!
Love, Rosie

I know I’m a little late to the party, but here’s my picture of @therealjacksepticeye for 13 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS!!! You deserve it, you really do. We are all so proud of you and stand behind you no matter what.

I know this isn’t the best (a mix of marker and paint since my skin tone markers are crap 😅), but I hope you all like it anyway.

Jack - if you see this, thank you so much for everything. My past two years would have been a lot worse without you.
