I watch YouTube videos all the time. When I'm getting ready, when I'm at lunch, when I'm procrastinating. I just realized that it's probably a problem how often I watch YouTube videos.
I have my favorites.. then there are the ones I watch by accident and I'm like "how do you have a million subscribers?" It's an epidemic. People are already stupid, now they're being stupid, putting it on the internet for people to see, and getting paid to have people watch it. WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?
Anywayssss, Ashten at Always Ashten does Vlog like a Boss, and I considered doing it once.... then I realized there are a few reasons why I stick to leaving my words on the internet and not my videos...
1. In blogland, you can pass with knowing a little bit about a lot of topics. Especially in the "lifestyle" niche where I like to hang out. It actually helps to know a little bit about a bunch of stuff. When you corner yourself into one niche, it can get ugly. Like the time I tried to be book blogger... In YouTubeLand, (from what I've seen), it's better to know a lot about one thing. Unless you're Jenna Marbles then you just do whatever the heck you want.
2. I talk with my hands. You can't try to record yourself talking when your flinging your hands everywhere. Stuff gets knocked over, then you have to stop everything and pick it up, then you forgot what you were talking about. It's a hot mess.
3. Of the YouTubers I usually watch they're either magical goddesses of make up, or effing hilarious. I'm neither. Nine times out of ten I wish I had enough time to redo my make up in the morning. Also nine times out of ten, I'm the only one laughing at my jokes. Seriously the ones that I think are funny here, take me like 20 minutes to come up with. Even sarcastic comments I'm like
Ah yes, this will be a good one.
4. No Gifs. Enough said.
5. I can't pull off crazy colors of lipstick.. it just can't happen.
Although I know I'll never be a YouTube sensation, I wouldn't mind being in a gif. Dream big.
What are some reasons you don't want to be YouTuber?
