My primary source of entertainment is no longer pop-stars, blockbuster movies, or reality TV shows – it’s the Internet. YouTube is the fabulous place where people just like myself can start producing content; cooking, fashion, personal style, lifestyle vlogging, travel, DIYs, exercise, humor, short films, music… literally anything and everything! In case you’ve been living under a rock, I’m here to inform you of the next generation of digital entertainment, by sharing just a few of my absolute favourites.
The best thing about YouTube is how normal everybody is. It’s similar to blogging, but on another level. The viewers and the producers are equal, and the intimacy with which they share their lives and personalities create unique relationships. Even though I’ve never met these people in real life, I feel like I know them as friends, in a way. They interact with their viewers both online and in-person, and speak directly to us via a camera lens and a computer screen. Also, most of them not only create videos based on a specific topic or theme, but also vlog their daily lives and/or travels. In theory, watching somebody’s daily activities would be either boring or creepy, but somehow, it’s so interesting! (and it’s not creepy because they voluntarily post the vlogs!!)
