Why Casey Neistat Is The Best YouTuber

Why Casey Neistat Is The Best YouTuber

No other daily vlogger can compete.

Casey Neistat is without a doubt the most driven, hard-working, talented, hilarious, interesting and just overall amazing YouTuber in the game right now. So if you are not already subscribed to him, you should get on that. Neistat is an accomplished guy – before taking on YouTube as a full-time career, he produced multiple successful films, which is how he first made a name for himself.

If you already do know of Casey Neistat, you probably first heard his name because of "The Neistat Brothers," his HBO series produced by him and his brother, or because of his multiple viral videos, like “iPod’s Dirty Secret." All of these successes are what gave Casey that initial fan base that is now incredibly devoted to him, which explains his 2 million plus subscribers on YouTube. His fan base has grown to an incredible amount, even in just the past few months alone; so much so that most of his videos receive over a million views – and that’s a lot even for someone with a huge following.

Neistat has been uploading YouTube videos for about six years, but just about a year ago his focus on this powerful medium changed to daily vlogging. In the beginning of his YouTube career, his typical videos were more like short films, most of which told a meaningful story. Now, although vlogs are still technically short little movies, they are vastly different, but still equally as cool and remarkable.

Now, his videos tell a different kind of story – a story about his everyday life. His vlogs truly display his talent. I mean, he uploads every single day and still each video is distinctive – which is something I personally truly appreciate about him. You would think that his videos would lose effect since they are daily videos, but he manages to upload something intriguing every single day. Basically what I’m getting at is that his vlogs still haven’t lost their spark, even after a full year.

There are a few key components in Casey’s daily vlogs that make his videos different from the next daily vlogger’s. First and foremost, nothing beats his time lapses. As a resident of New York City, Casey is able to get some of the most beautiful time lapses of some of the coolest scenery in the world. New York is a huge element of Casey’s high quality vlogs because he’s always doing something unique, which he of course captures on camera.

Casey also has two segments in his vlogs that he does once a week – Mail Time and Ask Me Anything. Casey is all about communicating with his subscribers and viewers – something many successful YouTubers wouldn’t take the time to do. In Mail Time, Casey opens up the packages he gets from his P.O. Box, and in Ask Me Anything, he answers the questions his subscribers send him via social media.

With all of these amazing features, every single one of Casey’s vlogs turns out nearly perfect, and I’m so glad he’s getting the recognition he deserves. Casey is a huge inspiration, not only to up and coming YouTubers and filmmakers, but to each and every one of his subscribers that he influences so deeply.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
