I know for most, I'm really late to the vlogging and Youtube craze. But at the same time, I feel like there is still a vast majority of people, like me, who aren't into Youtube and watching vlogs regularly.
Recently, I came across a very popular beauty and fashion vlogger named Zoella. Her real name is Zoe Sugg and she and her friends are all part of a group of British vloggers and content creators. Her boyfriend, Alfie Deyes, is also another very popular vlogger under the name Pointless Blogs/Vlogs.
Zoe has her main channel, where she frequently talks about the clothes she's bought or the beauty products she's loving. But she also has a second channel titled More Zoella. On this second channel, Zoe films daily videos of her life and posts basically a weekly recap of what she did.
I have to say I've become quite obsessed with her More Zoella channel. I love how bubbly she is and it's very cool to see her life from this perspective. You get lots of behind the scenes with her professional life and just the daily things she does in her gorgeous home. Plus, she's very British and to my American self, her speech and her common words for things are incredibly fun to listen to.
I didn't really know how fun it could be to watch vlogs and Youtube videos regularly. My husband really enjoys Youtube and has been following most of his favorite channels, such as H3H3 and the most famous, Pewdiepie, for years.
Along with Zoella, I finally checked out Marzia on Youtube, who is Pewdiepie's long-time girlfriend. She's such a unique person with a lovely style that I adore. I've always loved her after seeing her appear on Pewdiepie's channel when my husband would watch new videos. But I never knew how much content she produced on her own.
Vlogging is quite different from other forms of social media. It's much more personal and because of this, I find it very relatable. Although many of the famous vloggers do live quite different lives from me, I see their daily life and it reminds me that they're normal people still. They shop at grocery stores, they eat out, and they try new things.
I think with many social media forms, such as Facebook or Instagram, it's easy to portray a certain persona that's very different from who you are. With vlogging, it seems to be harder to fake that personality.
I'm sure the camera face is still very different from when they're home chilling with their friends, but at the same time, it's so much more relatable than an Instagram feed.
I find vlogging to be very refreshing after I've been really bummed out about how Instagram is becoming. We're all striving to be so perfect in photos, but it's making us all miserable trying to keep up with the popular style of Instagram.
I think vlogging is going to grow even bigger in the future because people are starting to crave more realistic experiences. It feels like you're really getting to know someone, even though they might be miles away. Watching vlogs is definitely more enjoyable than scrolling through Instagram, at least from my own personal experience.
To sum up this article, I would just suggest you find a vlogger who fits your niche and give it a try. There are so many out there, and one is bound to catch your attention. I've certainly become a vlogging advocate and would love to know your thoughts about this in the comments!
