FFTKNetwork (Helping Smaller Channels) UPDATE!

Just a brief update for anyone wondering what to do if wanting to join the network before the website goes live (might take a week as I have no idea how to make a website.  lol)

But in the meantime all you need to do is send an e-mail  to while answering these quick questions.  They are:

  • Username/Channel Name
  • Channel URL (address)
  • Amount of Subscribers
  • Location
  • Rough age range (eg.  under 18 or over 18 if you don't feel comfortable with a specific age)
  • Type of channel (eg. gameplay, commentary, let's play, minecraft, etc.)

Before you will be officially added to the network you need to ensure you are subscribed to FFTKNetwork(no vids yet, but will all be about growing your channel) & my personal channel FFTKGaming.

  • You MUST have a Twitter account as it's a large part of making this work.  Mine is 
  • Last buy not least, please add FFTKGaming to your sub box as a thankyou to me (as this is very time consuming and I'm only doing this to help guys just starting out because I know how tough it us.  


I Want To Help YOU!  Yes YOU! 
She Said To The Guy Wanting To Grow His YOUTUBE Channel!!!!

I'm creating a website/channel where I'll be empowering smaller channels to network and grow with each other.  It'll be a network where you will be connected with other Youtubers also members of the network.  All you'll have to do is join, answer a couple simple questions, create a twitter & Subscribe/Subbox FFTKGaming (as this will be ALOT of work on my behalf, that's ALL I'm asking for).  
I have been incredibly lucky since starting Youtube being blessed with meeting many fantastic people, many of which have either directly or indirectly positively affected the growth of my channel.  
I could not be more grateful and would like to give back to the community.  Specifically those channels with under 1000 subscribers.
Members will be separated into groups via their channel size & will be given access to others in the same situation to network with.  By networking I mean following each other on Twitter, liking/favoriting each other's videos on Youtube & possibly doing video swaps/dual commentaries/projects/etc.

MORE INFO COMING SOON - Click  Twitter to send me a tweet on twitter in the meantime to show your interest.  Email address to be posted in another day or so.

Double MOAB & Open Lobby!

Sorry guys, but unfortunately life just got in the way of "Online Life" over the past few days, which honestly is the way it should be so not much that can be done about it.
My boyfriend's son broke his hand, not to mention was suspended from school so I've had him home all week. unfortunately he also brought some stomach bug home with him, so none of us got a relaxing break (to say the least).
I did get a little chance to sneak in a few games & thought I'd share this P90 Double MOAB (Yes I said DOUBLE) where I talk to you guys about what you'd like to see happen for 1000 subscribers, as you guessed it, reached this milestone last week & couldn't be happier.  Thanks to all of you guys who've helped and supported me, you know who you are & you know I'll happily repay the favour <3

Check out the Double MOAB HERE....

Stay Tuned for 2 Minute MOAB & Setup Video!!!!
Open Lobby Details TBA...

In other news, my boyfriend's eldest kid broke his hand, so my video schedule may be a little bit off for a few days.  I'm also not getting alot of time to play, but hopefully my new console will arrive soon.  it was mailed last week, but no one was home.  Last I heard the courier was "looking for it"

Youtube Is screwing Us Over!!!!

Hey guy & gals,

It's Kirsty, as usual, with another blog update.  As you guys may have gathered Youtube is effectively deleting old accounts.  Apparently it is deleting ACTIVE subs as well, so people (me included) are losing subs.  Another thing is the total of subscribers seems to be incorrect.  Was wondering why I suddenly can't reach 800 subs (I'm at 798) when I gained an average of 11 subs per day prior to the last week.  There are posts left 7 right about this on the Google Help Forums, without much help from Youtube apparently.  People are saying it's something in the algorithm after the previous update.  Here's a link to what I was referring too
Another thing killing our channels is the recent Channel Layout update which took place on March 7th.  We've all had a bit of time to experience the new layout and to evaluate any possible changes to come from this & in my opinion I'm quite dissatisfied, as are many I know.  It makes it far harder to network & just find other new channels & the comments section is all hidden away.  Another problem is the Youtube main homepage, which now only displays "Highlights" by default.  This can of course be changed to include "Everything" but each and every time you sign back onto Youtube you need to reselect it again.  I wouldn't be surprised if alot of people even know these options exist.
Seems harder to get your videos featured besides other successful videos, when it once was as simple as a couple of similar tags & the ONLY channels Youtube chooses to feature are the biggest channels which you're already subscribed too.
So finding new content & people to watch has become harder than ever.  Not to mention all of the smaller Youtube channels now just finding it harder & harder to build any sort of an audience base at all.
It seems honestly, that Youtube is more concerned with integrating their useless "Google +" Service that no one uses, opposed to making the website more User-friendly & Community centred, THE WAY IT SHOULD BE!!!!

Please Google, fix Youtube before some other company comes in & steals your viewers in the way that Facebook did to Myspace in the past.  Keep changing stuff & adding useless features we don't want and it's closer to happening.  I swear, I wish I was more of a computer nerd as if I was I could easily topple them with the shit service they're providing as of late.

                                               Hear me talk about the first topic in a Video...

Some Long Awaited Photos Of Me! =)

So I know people who play with me on Playstation Network are often curious about what I look like.  Often wanting to add me on Facebook (which yes I know, is to only find out what I look like & how old I am) so here we have it.  I've been holding out on you guys for ages, and will continue to do so in regards to my complete lack of vlogs, but I will give you a few choice photos.  I'm too lazy to pull them off my Harddrive, so I grabbed a little collection off of my personal Facebook.

Here's the actual photo from my old avatar, taken at an awesome Halloween rave on a boat.

Me & the boyfriend at that boat halloween rave in the last photo (hence the costume)

One of my many hobbies, aggressive inline skating.  How cool is that bench? =P

Just an Odd happy photo with the Catty.  See, I'm pretty bubbly in real life too =)

My eldest Stepson & me just chilling.  

Hope you enjoyed a little bit of extra insight.  I best be back to the kitchen now =P

Welcome & Introduction!

Hi Guys & Girls,

It's Kirsty, as usual, but not with a gameplay commentary, a blog this time!  Figured it was about time to venture into this weird world of blogging and get my feet wet, well maybe my little toe =P
As most of you guys know, I'm an avid gamer & Youtube commentator from Melbourne, which is essentially the Red-haired stepchild of Sydney in most people's eyes (although, I personally see it the OTHER way around.  hehehe)
I'll post here every now & then, giving you guys a bit more insight into my sick, sick mind.  Of course gaming & youtube type stuff will be here too, because I'm NEVER going to be technologically advanced enough to create a proper website.

If you haven't seen it already, here is today's video posting.  A somewhat humorous High Scoring game, where I hope to give you guys at home some tips to use Recon Pro to benefit your game & I also talk about state of mind & how it relates to ingame performance.  I highly suggest checking it out =)
