I’ve never been a huge fan of YouTube and I’ve never bothered to really watch people, follow people or get to know some of the more “well-known” YouTuber’s. Until around last year. YouTube was never something for me – I couldn’t think of anything worse than talking to a camera and spending hours editing and oh my brain fuzz – and it still isn’t but my YouTube watching habits have grown immensely since discovering – albeit years later than everyone else – some amazing women (and men) on YouTube who I enjoy watching immensely. I seem to have a YouTuber for ever sort of mood and ones I tend to turn to.
Dodie Clark: I love Dodie’s vlog channel and she’s one I like to watch when I’m bored because I just find her so funny. I like the contrast between very light-hearted videos and also extremely serious topics on her channel; she almost has something for every mood I’m in. She’s also a beautiful singer.
Lucy Moon: Lucy is someone I always go to when I’m feeling a bit down in myself and maybe need to focus on my own self-care and mental health. I find Lucy very therapeutic to listen to and I love how focused she is on topics like self-care, mental health and looking after yourself.
Melanie Murphy: I feel like I’m watching a friend when I watch any of Melanie’s videos as I love the bubbly nature of her videos. She also talks about important fucking topics like eating disorders and body dysmorphia and I love her outlook and approach to food. I often find I binge on her food related videos when I’m in a cooking type mood myself!
Grace Victory: Grace is one of the most inspirational women on the internet right now and I love watching grace when I need a bit of life, blog or business inspiration myself or when I need that reminder that you can fucking achieve anything if you work hard.
Evan Edinger: When I need a laugh, I immediately put Evan’s channel on; I particularly love his ‘British vs American‘ series of video collaborations and find myself laughing along with all of them. Evan has an amazing way of making you feel like you’re not alone when watching him as he’s so personable and fun.
Fabulous Hannah: I fucking love Hannah and as a fellow Essex girl I just feel like I totally ‘get’ her. If you need to watch someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously and is naturally just hilarious, then Hannah is perfect for that. I feel so at home watching Hannah, maybe it’s the shared accent? I don’t know.
