It is no secret that we are spending more time on the internet and watching shows by Netflix rather than sitting down in front of the TV. I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube, almost every day I watch vlogs and ‘Favourites’ videos by people I don’t even like. Why do I bother? I think it’s addictive and I am sure there are studies out there to prove it. It makes me pretty uncomfortable that a majority of the mainstream, super popular YouTubers are pretty hush hush about real life events and issues – you should read Caitlin’s blog about whether Influencers have a social responsibility (we vote yes).
However, there are some YouTubers that produce valuable and genuinely good quality videos that I feel inject a little positivity and insight into my day. So, in this blog I decided to share them with you! Enjoy and please let me know who you’re enjoying watching.
- Leena Norms
Leena chats about books, feminism, her thoughts and how to try to be a better person. Her channel is witty, relaxed and insightful.
- Laci Green
Laci’s channel is all about Sex Ed, politics and social inequalities.
Dodie’s main channel features creative covers, original songs and cool projects. She also talks about mental health, sexuality and other interesting stuff.
- Hannah Witton
Hannah’s videos are about sex, relationships, travel and other bits and bobs. She has a “Drunk Advice” series and also recently did “Vlognukah”.
- Ash Hardell
Ash’s channel is extremely educational, heart warming and beautifully constructed. I particularly enjoy the ABC’s of LGBT series and slam poetry videos.
- Noah Guthrie
Only1Noah is one of the first YouTube channels I started to watch regularly. He does the most beautiful covers and also has an album out.
Oh, one last one! I know I said I wasn’t as keen on the more popular YouTubers, however I do think Louise Pentland (a.k.a Sprinkle of Glitter) is pretty awesome.
