What the new vlogs mean to me. (Thank you, Markiplier)
This inspiring viewpoint on Mark’s recent vlogs was posted on the /r/markiplier subreddit by /u/terminavelocity. I believe it deserves to be spread around.
Thanks so much for sharing this! Currently not in Los Angeles (filming another van video lol) and was up early today thinking about how to make better videos and this was exactly what I need to see this morning. I’ve been enthralled by the response to the videos and have been laughing and smiling at the various theories but this is the first comment that made me tear up a bit.
To be honest, this is why I wanted to make videos like this.
I was gonna wait until the livestream tomorrow to start talking about this (and give answers to WKM) but I just wanted to say thank you so much to /u/terminavelocity for taking the time to watch the videos and I’m so glad you enjoyed them. I honestly had no idea if this insane video concept was gonna work but the one thing that I kept repeating to myself over and over and over in the weeks leading up to this was that my relationship with you guys is the most important thing in the world to me.
The execution isn’t perfect but I wanted to somehow invoke the feeling that you guys were really there with me. I don’t want to turn into a daily vlog channel (and I haven’t, trust me) but when I took a break I set a goal to only make videos that I’m truly proud of and that are worthy of people’s time. But this was one of those things where in order to be true to what I wanted to accomplish I kinda had to dive in head first and hope for the best. Any awkwardness or unnaturalness is a result of me getting used to something I’ve never done before haha.
I’ll save more detail for the livestream Saturday but honestly thank you all so much. The van videos aren’t the only type of videos I’m going to be doing in the future, I’ve got so many other new ideas I want to try. And for those who are worried, the gaming content is not gone in any way shape or form. In fact you’re probably gonna get more than ever! I just have to try the new stuff first 😀
But truly, just thanks for believing in me and being there for me. It means the world.

Cool. I’m glad we’re getting the livestream tomorrow, and that there’ll be some focus on WKM.
