Have you ever thought it would be easier to find fame on youtube?
I can promise you its not as easy as you think.
When I first started posting onto youtube videos, after i was convinced after many months of being told to try it by Mikey, Mikey was convinced I would get more subs than him or views just for the fact that I’m a girl.
Where do we stand now?
Mike: Doing YT 13 Months, 271 Subscribers
Me: Doing YT 11 Months, 82 subs and dropping
TBH, I really honestly enjoy doing it! I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t and although I have had help from a few people on Mikey’s close net of subs I have gotten a lot of my subscribers myself! This makes me happy as I wouldn’t want to get anywhere from everyone spamming people with my videos etc!
Or the fact that I am a female gamer! This gets exploited so much and I have got to say how annoying it is to be under this class. I am not a girl gamer. I am just a gamer, who just so happens to be a girl!
It’s similar to when you’re in a game and someone realises you are a girl, then they give you banter telling you how bad you’re going to be or how they’re going to “rape” you (as lovely as a phrase that is)
It’s quite possibly my pet hate when it comes to the world at which I am so passionate about! Although it is highly entertaining when they give you all that chat and you pwn! ;)
Fame in the YT world is a hard thing and that is for sure, as I have said because I would love to become famous and have people interested in what I do on a day to day basis! It’s getting there which is the problem!
It takes dedication and effort and uploading regularly and knowing the right tags and what to put in the description to help people find your videos and I honestly have no clue. I’m so impressed I’ve reached over 80 subscribers from knowing nothing! Humor is another big factor apparently, I’ve gotten quite a few messages through saying that I’m funny and I do honestly consider myself quite a humorous person (not to toot my own horn).
As for the dedication:
I can’t guarantee that I can upload every single day! I just can’t! I have a son and a house to keep tidy (although it slacks sometimes) and I have a job where my hours are always a bit topsy turvy and have to share the computer with my boyfriend as our financial situation is pretty damn difficult at the moment.
Thanks to Melonie Mac, Tony (Mikey’s dad) and a few other people I want to build my own computer! Which of course is an expensive job in itself as well as maintaining it and running it etc. I want to be able to have the equipment we both need to succeed in youtube!
Money plays a big factor in youtube and hopefully something will come from it. I wish I could tell you that this was an easy ride. but it’s not! please and thank you if anyone does read this! and I’m sorry for going off on a ramble, if you watch my videos you know this already.
If you have any advice for me about this topic please feel free to offer it to me and I’ll catch you on the next one guys!
