I once touched up on the subject in a piece of school work about how famous people can get through the power of YouTube. Since I can remember I’ve wanted to make a YouTube channel, unfortunately I’ve never had the confidence to do so, I’m hoping one day I will! ANYWAY, I’ve always watched YouTubers and admired them…they all are so funny and talented in their own ways. Even if their talent is just making people laugh.
Over the last couple of years there’s been a boom in British YouTubers. The likes of Jack Harries (JacksGap) and his twin brother Finn, Marcus Butler (MarcusButlerTV), Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlogTV) and two best pals Louise (Sprinkleofglitter) and Zoe or Zoella as most know her (Zoella280390). They’ve all grown such a huge following, Zoe even reached a goal of 1 Million subscribers yesterday- madness.
I think it’s amazing how easily people can get noticed nowadays, it’s so good to make a platform like that for people. Everyone has an equal opportunity to make something of their lives, they just have to have a bit of wit and know what they’re going to base their channel on.
YouTube is also a massive platform for aspiring singers, lets use an obvious example which is so typical of me to talk about – 5 Seconds of Summer. An Aussie band (NOT a boyband) who just started off on YouTube but are now supporting One Direction on a world tour. That is totally mental, the right person finds you on YouTube and you turn into a someone instead of just a ‘nobody’ immediately – although, they definitely weren’t nobodies at all.
I haven’t posted on here in a while due to lack of motivation, nothing taking my interest and just general problems in my silly head. But I will definitely try a lot more to post in the future, I’ve just had a few off months!
