The ups and down of YouTube life (part 1) The DOWNSIDES

 Hey guys! As we move into a SECOND lockdown here in the UK, I just want to let you know to HANG. IN THERE! I promise, it will NOT be as bad as the first, and I know you\’ll all get through it, I love you all thank you so much for being my amazing supportive fans! ❤ 

Ok, back to this blog 🙂 So I wanted to share with you the… not so great, parts about being a YouTuber, as for some reason most people seem to think that being able to film yourself and broadcast it to millions of people out there is a luxury, a perfect alternate reality and that really doesn\’t exist. Sure, having an audience at the drop of a hat is amazing, but it\’s not always like that! There are some wonderful parts to being a YouTuber, of course, but there\’s already enough of that out there, about the fame, glitz and glamour. There isn\’t enough of THIS.

I spend hours on a weekly basis filming and editing videos writing, blogs, filming podcasts and things for TV appearances… or even going live on air once in a while! Just trying to get myself noticed and out-there, basically. I\’m not complaining, I mean this IS my CHOICE, after all. I knew it wouldn\’t be easy, and personally, I\’m fine with that!  My life isn\’t glitz and glamour. Especially at times like these. In a 2 week self-isolation along with my year, during a global pandemic.  Sometimes, it\’s more than easy to give up. Like when the path ahead is hardly visible and you begin to question every decision you\’ve EVER made. 

Hey, just ask the 11-year-old me -At the point in my life where I had to choose between a whole new future or a secure one- I had the opportunity to go to an Amazing school, but only if I got a scholarship. Was it worth it? To pursue my own dreams by going to this school, leaving everyone I knew from primary behind, and work on something I barely just dug through the surface of and put myself in a really good position for my future? Or go to a place where I\’d have friends from day 1, a good enough future and something to fall back on. 

the only downside is I\’d regret it later on, thinking What IF I did that? and never really knowing for sure.

Wow, when you put it like that it seems an almost impossible decision, but I bet you can guess what I chose. 

ANNNYWAY, what I\’m saying is Being a youtube is about determination, sacrifices and tough decisions. 

But, sorry I do seem to be dragging on a bit this post, aren\’t I?

So I\’ll do it in 2 separate parts! Save you from getting through the rest. So what can I say? Stay tuned for part 2, hopefully, a way more positive blog! 🙂

How to improve videos :)

Heyaa guys! This blog is getting better than ever guys! Thanks so much 🙂

Today, I want to talk about how to make an amazing video -start to end- enjoy my general tips for making a really good YouTube video! Hope you enjoy it, and feel free to comment with your own tips too! -Love to hear them 😀

General video tips:
Keep your video as short as possible, this will help engage your audience, no one wants to be dragged through hours of footage! Find the best -and important- parts from your video, these are the things people want to see!

Make sure that its something you\’d want to watch yourself, yes, infinite\’s repeating herself and ignoring the fact that it makes people lose interest but its actually true! Your the biggest critique on yourself -If you do this right, it should show in your videos! By making them AWESOME!

Speaking on repetition… try not to repeat yourself in videos -This really makes people loose interest, and it also makes your video drag on! See if you say similar things in videos, and edit those bits to make your video shorter and more engaging! 

Make videos that you actually enjoy making! Don\’t do fashion if you love sports, basically. your fans will see your interested and sure, you may lose a subscriber or two, but your fans are here to support you, and they will! If you show your interested, and you care, people will see that and come back for more!

Premieres are a GREAT feature on YouTube, schedule a video to play in real-time, where you can chat to fans as well, like a live but with a pre-recorded video! It\’s a really good way to engage with fans and really fun to do from time to time!

So there you go! I hope you like my tips and I hope you enjoy bonfire-night, guys!! Christmas is creeping closer, I can\’t wait! I\’m getting a GoPro 🙂 SoOo EXCITED!! Anyways, have fun tonight guys! Bye!

YouTube channels :)

Hello my Lovely readers, today, I want to talk about why people give up on their channel after a while.

The main reason I think people stop posting is that they don\’t get the responses they want -and I agree- it\’s a little disheartening when you spend hours slaving away over a screen only to have no views and likes in response, everyone who\’s famous has been there once. People expect as soon as they post a video to be noticed immediately, and to have their phone buzzing continuously in the next 24 hours -It just doesn\’t happen- I spent 2 years just to get to where I am right now 247 subscribers -and that\’s nothing compared to 2 million subscribers, those people get 2x more subscribers than I have A DAY! (lucky humans..)

But yeah, many of my friends have started their own channels, and I\’m really supportive at that, I mean it\’s pretty cool having friends doing something you\’re also in to, but after a while, it goes the same way… One day, they say \”Oh I have a channel\” I check it out, I subscribe, watch their first video, like it -once they have uploaded a couple of videos. A month later they post another, and it just grinds to a halt so their latest video was 6 months ago or something. You\’ve just got to show a LITTLE resilience in this department.

But, another thing you should do, as I\’ve repeated multiple times.. You shouldn\’t worry to much about the numbers. Don\’t spend your life saying what you\’ve done isn\’t good enough, i\’m proud of what i\’ve created, sure it isn\’t millions, but i have REAL people -Yes, we all spam ourselves at least once.. who read what I have to say -watch my videos, check out my social media… and it\’s pretty cool! Being grateful DOES has it\’s rewards -My 15-second reviews for Max and Harvey FOMO  have been broadcast on TV SEVEN times! (Sorry, I\’m just really proud of it)

So yeah -If your not famous, don\’t worry too much -Just hang in there! The rewards will be worth it 🙂 Trust me!
