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! 🙂
