I have a confession.... I'am addicted to Youtube! An have been for a good couple of years now, and through this time I have put together a list of my favourite Youtubers who I'am constantly watching over and over again, and I want to share them with you all, so you can also become obsessed with them. Some you may have heard of and some you may never even known existed on the Web. So sit back and enjoy! Also if you have any Youtubers that you love that I haven't mentioned on this list or you are equally obsessed with any of these Youtubers then please let me know in the comment section. Happy Exploring!
Rose and Rosie
Lets start with these two who are a married British couple that have to two channels that you should defiantly be subscribed to! ‘RoseEllenDix’ started youtube in 2011 and has gained up to 717k subscribers. ‘The Roxtera’ is their second channel where they mainly post funny, relatable vlogs and has up to 381k subscribers. I feel in love with these two after finding their beautiful video of their wedding, and after that I spent the next two days binge watching their old videos and their are a lot! Their video style reminds me so much of ‘old school youtube’, before their was diss tracks and clickbait, they simply sit down together and talk about whatever they want, and finding unscripted, raw content on youtube is sometimes rare, especially when they are both so naturally funny! I was once watching a video of theirs on the train and geniually laughed out loud, I think I even felt a tear fall from laughing, and it was worth the weird stares I got from everyone on that train. Because their videos are so real you feel like your sitting on that sofa with them listening to fifth harmony and chilling with Wilmer (There adorable dog). All of this reminds me why I fell in love with youtube in general, feeling like you can connect with people and become apart of something. But I am clearly not the only person who feels like this, due to their huge success with their most recent tour, and recently winning a Teen choice award, so I defiantly recommend you checking out their channels now and becoming obsessed with them before they are everywhere!!
‘ElleOfTheMills’ is a philippine born young youtuber who now lives in Canada with her mum and brother (who make regular appearances in her videos). Elle started Youtube in 2012 and has since racked up 950K subscribers, and is quickly gaining more! I first heard of Elle when a friend of mine showed me her trailer videos that she makes, she has an amazing talent in editing which is refreshing since a lot of ‘big’ you tubers these days don't edit their own videos. Her content is hilarious and extremely clever! She has created her own style of video making and has ideas that are so original and different, which again is hard to find on youtube, when you think you've seen everything, every idea and every challenge its rare to find someone with such originality on a platform like Youtube. Elle creates her own comedic opportunities by doing BOLD moves, like taking her teachers to house parties, breaking into her old school, throwing her brother a sleepover with all his exes, oh and trying to find her mum a tinder date, just to name a few of her ideas, and I’m sure you can agree, with just a basic description I have given you of these videos you already know they are going to pretty funny. Recently her channel has been gaining a lot of exposure and is growing quickly, so if you haven't already subscribed to her then you need to stop reading this and go and SUBCRIBE! And then come back here of course :).
Where do I even start with Casey. I’m certain you’ve probably already heard of him as he has over 8.6 million subscribers and only started vloging in 2015. But if you haven't then allow me to tell you how he got started in a nutshell. Casey is an American filmmaker, CEO, vlogger, father of two and a husband. With him having is first child at 17 he worked lots of different jobs, one of these being a dishwasher, and he was living in a trailer park. When Casey turned 20 he moved to NYC where he got a job as a bike messenger, but he also started to fall in love with video making, and created his first video in 2001, capturing the moment the twin towers where attacked. 2008 was the year Casey went from making short films to making just under 2 million dollars for selling an 8 episode series he worked on with his brother called ’the Neistat brothers’. So that is a brief summary of the mysterious and incredibly hard working man that is Casey Neistat, however there is a lot I missed out and his story is very inspiring, his first video I watched was his ‘Draw my life’ video which is defiantly worth a watch! Casey has changed the youtube game, each video of his is basically a short oscar winning film, with the amazing camera work, editing and commentary and not to forget the great content, he talks about real issues in the world that matter and gives out great advice on how to work hard, and I must say i don't think anyone can discredit him on his work ethic. He sleeps about 4 hours a night and then wakes up and runs 20 miles, whilst running his own company, being a father, travelling the world and to top it all off he captures all the best moments out of his day for us to enjoy, and for us to wonder how on earth he does it! I have a theory that he’s an alien or something. There are so many amazing videos Casey has created that I could create a completey serperate blog all about them, and if you have been living under a rock and haven't checked out his channel then I honestly feel for you, because you have not yet expericend the brilliance this man has to offer, so please make yourself a coffee, go on youtube, find his channel and sit back and enjoy his crazy life.
Meghan is a born and raised northern California girl, who started her youtube channel back in 2010, since then she has gained a mainly female audience with 2.3 million subscribers. On her channel you will find all kinds of content, from giving advice with her mother (which is always funny), to baking in her beautiful kitchen and giving tips in all things beauty. However you may know Meghan from other projects she has worked on besides her channel, such as being a leading character in a Hulu original series ‘Freakish’, and she was heavily involved in other Youtube channels such as ‘Awesomeness TV’ and ‘Clevver TV’. And thats not all! She also has a very popular podcast called ‘Dont blame me’ where her audience can call in and ask her for advice, and commercially tries her best to give them the best advice. Besides having an incredibly successful channel she continues to focus on her acting career, which from a little bit of stalking on her Instagram (which you should also follow, as the theme is amazing) She is currently working on a new movie. But before you see her on your TV screen I suggest you check out her channel and get to know Meghan, for her kind heart and realness that she portrays in every video, its safe to say that she isn't afraid to share everything on the internet, she even documented every day of her Nose surgery, yep thats right she is very much unfiltered, but thats why people love her and continue to watch her videos.
In my opinion you don't get more Youtube than Shane Dawson! Again I’m sure you have heard of Shane if you are an avid Youtube watcher like myself. Shane got his start in Youtube back in 2008, but before that so much had already happened! Shane was bought up with not a lot of money and very much overweight, making his childhood very difficult, however he started working for a weight loss company ‘Jenny Craig’ and lot an amazing 150 POUNDS!! But whilst working here alongside his mother and other colleagues he started to make Youtube videos, and if you have seen Shane’s earlier videos then you will know that his sense of humour was very ‘pushing’ meaning not everyone understood it and it could be very misinterpreted, this lead him to getting fired from this job as well as his mother and other colleagues who appeared in his videos. Fast forward from that he now has one of the most successful Youtube channels with 11.9 million subscribers, and is very highly respected within the Youtube community as he was one of the first Youtubers to really ‘make it’ as a successful career. Not only does he have an insanely quick, charming and funny sense of humour, he is also extremely talented in many other areas, he’s written two New York bestselling books, directed his own short films, Co hosts his own podcast ‘Shane and friends’ and he has a singing career (although I don't know if that last one counts, there more ‘jokey’ songs’). If you do check out Shane’s channel after this then not only will you fall in love with his diverse content and humour, you will also meet his adorable pets; Uno a yellow Labrador and his cat Cheeto, who I am sure you can guess is a ginger cat, not the popular snack!
