    For those of you who are not familiar with 'Youtube sensations' (ie for those who actually have lives lol), it's basically normal individuals who create Youtube videos, weather it be on make up, lifestyle or vlogs (literally filming your life and uploading it onto Youtube, yes people watch that..), get loads of views and 'subscribers' and become 'mini celebrities'. Making these videos can then become a job and a stable source of income of you get quite popular.

    Firstly, what do you think about this whole Youtuber culture? I personally believe that it must take a lot of courage to just post yourself online under the scrutiny of internet 'trolls' etc, so good on them for that, but at the same time I see a lot of 'popular' Youtubers who become extreamley arrogant and pretentious after gaining their new found 'fame'. In addition, I also feel there are a lot of 'pointless' blogs (excuse the pun, if you understand that then lol) of dumb teenagers doing dumb crap such as 'Hitting eachother on the head with an egg challenge' that a large demographic of teenage girls then devour, most likely because the Youtubers are 'good looking', not because they have actual talent.

    Also, what do you think about a person creating a youtube channel whilst at university? Mind you the channel could be a place to vent about certian past experinces/people/teachers, obviously not from the current university but just past high school experiences. Do you think the university would have a problem? I was thinking about starting a channel at Uni to see how it goes, then was wondering if expressing myself and discussing my personal experiences would be bad as a Uni student... Although this question is much simpler if you're posting non-personal material. What about, perhaps, of the student is studying for a respectable fiels like Medicine or Law? Would venting/swearing about past *****y teacher tothe world be really bad for a medical student?

    I'd love to hear thoughts and discussions!

    Personally, I think that VLOGGING and keeping a youtube channel is a great way of recording memories, experiences and past thoughts/feelings etc...

    I intend to use youtube as a means of helping me with my revision for university exams so recording parts of lectures, workshops and directed learnings!

    So I just started a youtube channel recently with VLOGS, Fitness, Training and Nutrition aha

    I'm a REPS level 3 qualified personal trainer and I graduated a BSc in Biological Sciences in June but will be starting a MSc Physiotherapy Course at the University of Southampton in January.

    I intend to VLOG and keep on making videos just because I love making them. It would also be cool to get a small following too
