One of the very reasons I decided to create my own vlog in the first place, over a year and a half ago now, is because I’m a huge fan of Youtube.
If my other half is out, you’re much more likely to find me curled up on the sofa, or in bed, with my laptop on, a cup of tea in hand and my Spaniel by my side, watching vlogs, than you are watching television. (Or reading, but that’s another post for another time.)
I’m pretty sure we’ve all turned the TV on, channel surfed for a while, before deciding that there’s ‘nothing on’, yet continued sitting in front of some boring programme that doesn’t appeal to you, anyway. And I think that’s how my love for vlogs began. Because on Youtube, there’s always something on. And with the rise in content creators and the increase in high quality videos being uploaded, every single day, nowadays, we’re just over here making our own favourite shows and we don’t need to wait for the TV stations to buck their ideas up.
Of course, I’m as partial to The Crown, Blue Planet II and a good Louis Theroux documentary as the rest of the nation, but I’ve exhausted the movie list on Netflix and most of the time, I really do struggle to find something to watch.
Vlogs are also great for me to have on in the background, whilst I’m editing photos. I’ll often be editing on my iMac and have vlogs playing on my laptop, because they don’t require too much brain power and they feel like good company. For anyone working from home alone, I know you’ll appreciate that.
So, in light of all of this, I thought I’d share with you, the channels that I’m really loving right now, so that you can check them out and enjoy them too…
