Subscribe to favorite YouTubers, whether famous, lesser known

With the growth of social media, there has been an increase in subscribers on YouTube. Much like people who follow close friends on Facebook can be alerted every time they post, people can subscribe to channels on YouTube and have it come to their feed when a video is posted.

Before this year, I was a student that randomly got on YouTube only to watch a random funny video I heard about or a tutorial of something. Then I discovered the joy of subscribing to particular “YouTubers” when I found out about Jenna Marbles.

For those that don’t know who Jenna Marbles is, she creates funny videos every Wednesday making fun of popular culture and saying things on video most wouldn’t dare say out loud.

There are channels out there for anyone who enjoys watching videos and learning new things, but I am going to talk about a few channels I follow now that I enjoy watching every day.

The first is one of the most popular YouTubers. As of last week, PewDiePie has over 32 million subscribers. He produces videos almost every day of himself playing games or working funny magic with Photoshop. I know that watching other people play video games doesn’t sound fun, but he has a unique sense of humor. I don’t really enjoy watching video games as much as I love to laugh and he does a great job. A disclaimer is that he can be a little offensive, so if you are sensitive to jokes about sexual assault then I would take caution.

Another YouTuber I like to watch is Markiplier. He is very similar to PewDiePie by creating videos of himself playing video games. He has a great sense of humor, but in a way that is slightly less offensive than PewDiePie. Recently, he has been playing a game called To The Moon, which is a very sentimental role-playing game. I would highly recommend watching his videos of that game.

Another favorite channel of mine is grav3yardgirl. She is a very funny, quirky girl who does a lot of different things on her channel. She makes videos of her testing out different make-up products, Pinterest DIYs and other beauty ideas. The thing I like the best is she orders As Seen On TV products and tests them out to see if they actually work the way they are described on TV.

Please check out these channels, as well as search for some YouTubers for yourself. One thing to keep in mind, though, is a lot of the YouTubers who have a massive amount of subscribers might be getting paid to do their channels. I know that PewDiePie gets paid about $8 million a year from his YouTube channel. I am well aware that is a lot of money to people, but there are others who put out high-quality videos for little to no money. Make sure you show them support by liking their videos or subscribing to their channels.
