I’ve been vlogging since 2013 when I published my first video: “How I Stopped Dating and Started Writing.”
For me, YouTube has been a fun place that welcomes authenticity and I couldn’t be more pleased that I now have 19,000+ subscribers, especially considering I tend to vlog about more niche topics.
My viewers and commenters have wowed me in how delightful (and not-trolly) they are as well as how engaged they are. Many of them desire to become professional writers themselves which warms my little heart.
Giving them writing advice, insights, and encouragement in the form of videos whenever I can has become a favorite passion project. I always look forward to the fun, heartfelt, and vulnerable conversations we end up having in the comments.
