The YouTube Channel with over 5 Million Subscribers… (Not Mine Sadly)
YouTube. THE go-to place for videos of babies biting siblings, disobedient dogs chasing deer and cats slipping off roofs. Not, according to my daughter, the place for me to talk about my book ‘Ivy Lane’.
‘I just don’t think it’s the right way to market your books,’ she says with a sympathetic smile. ‘The people who read your books are,’ she pauses to search for a complimentary word, fails and continues regardless, ‘old.’
She is fourteen and watches YouTube more than TV. Zoella, a Brighton based beauty with over five million subscribers and a bank balance (almost) to match, being one of her favourites.
I think she is wrong. I think we all like to watch the odd YouTube video, we adults just aren’t slaves to it like teenagers.
So here is the video I made this week for Hannah Ferguson’s new YouTube channel. Enjoy!
