This is week 3 of the amazing ‘teens tell their story’ project run by the equally amazing Caitlyn & Sherina. I missed week 2, unfortunately, but really enjoyed week 1 (you can read it here) and I’m back to do week 3! As you can tell by the title, this weeks topic is YouTube.
If you’re like me, then YouTube has replaced TV in your life and pretty much all of the video content you consume comes from the online platform, except for Emmerdale, I love Emmerdale. I frickin love YouTube. It allows me to travel the world from my sofa (well…kinda) as well as be entertained on a daily basis. I can’t imagine my life without it, and I realise how sad that sounds,but I don’t care. What’s great about YouTube is, for the most part, it allows for an extremely positive community of people with similar interests to interact. In addition to this, anyone can make a channel and build a fanbase, which is awesome and means the level of creativity on the platform is always impressively high. It is also exceptionally versatile and therefore can satisfy any of your audience needs for example; I watch YouTube to laugh, interact or be informed, in fact most of my education probably comes from YouTube, which is awesome. My favourite YouTubers are mainly travel vloggers, not only do I really enjoy their personality, but watching their videos makes me want to pursue my dream even more, which can only be a good thing. I watch people like Ben Brown, the VagaBrothers and Nadine Sykora religiously for those exact reasons, and I will never get bored of their content. In addition to these YouTubers, others I watch on a daily basis are mainly comedy channels, in particular Onision (controversial I know) and JacksFilms, they are both hilarious.
So yeah that’s my take on this weeks topic, as you can tell, I love YouTube. Let me know if you do too! Please check out the creators of this project above, their blogs really are amazing. And thankyou for reading. Also, I linked the YouTubers for ease of access if you wanted to check them out 🙂
Keep smiling, Harrison.
