WANNA BE A YOUTUBER?!
Here's a little bit of my background that led me to YouTube, my personal YouTube experience,
and my best tips for starting your own channel!
Becoming a YouTuber was a long, sort of accidental journey for me. I studied Broadcasting at the University of South Carolina with dreams of becoming Katie Couric. But, upon graduation, I decided I didn't want to move from home. Honestly, I wasn't mature enough for a broadcasting job. I wasn't ready for the real, real world.
MY YOUTUBE EXPERIENCE
YouTube is not necessarily known for being the kindest place on the internet. Many very popular YouTubers have spoken out about the hateful comments and online bullying they've experienced. Thankfully for me, I've been spared from any of that. I don't know if it's because, as sewists, we are generally a kind community or if my channel just isn't big enough, yet.
When I started my channel, I never truly imagined it would turn into my full-time gig. So, it began as a bare-bones operation costing me nothing to start it up. And, it's largely remained that way, too! Here's a rundown of all the equipment, software, and apps I use for each and every video on my channel.
