A couple of months ago, I wrote a post about my current favorite YouTubers. Fast-forward to today, and I’ve come across new ones that I hope to share with you. Let’s get to them!
I don’t remember how I found her channel, but I’m glad that I did! Funny, bubbly, and charismatic, Canadian YouTuber Elle Mills might be young, but she has the personality and crazy-good editing skills to tell wonderful stories. From pranks to interviews with her high school teachers to mental health, Mills deserves the 1+ million subscribers on her channel. I always look forward to her new content every time!
Especially for someone like me who struggles with self-esteem and confidence, discovering this channel has really helped me assess who I am as a person and how I can make myself better in the process. Besides watching Charlie Houpert’s beautiful face, I’m also schooled in how to make good arguments, how to stand up for myself, and how to be aware of body language in public settings. Gives me the knowledge to be used this upcoming year at work!
Donna, aka the creater of PsychIRL, is a genius. She’s innovative, she does her research, and she presents her topics with a balance of quirky video editing (reminiscent of Alton Brown’s) and information. I enjoy her analyses on popular YouTubers and how they’re famous, as well as on how algorithms make social media so complicated today. She’s severely underrated, and I hope she makes a name for herself soon, but she deserves it!
The trend nowadays on YouTube is to make commentary videos about YouTubers, whether to praise or criticize them (often the latter). There are probably hundreds of such channels, some which are good, some which are just plain annoying. Aside from watching honest’s channel, I enjoy skullfuck’s as well. She can be polarizing, but I think her recent videos are well-articulated and I hope to see her grow more on her channel.
Another commentary channel, I find iNabber’s videos addictive, as they’re on the most-recent beef with people on YouTube’s platform. He might have that British, Hugh Grant vibe to him, but he still articulates well on each topic he discusses, as well as bringing evidence to back up his opinions. His videos are long, but well thought-out, and I enjoy looking forward to what he discusses next in the YouTube community.
Let me know some of your favorite YouTubers! I’d be interested in checking them out! Have a good day, everyone. 🙂
