What made you start your YouTube vlog? —Piturlea

I started Youtube because I have always been into fashion, makeup and photography so I decided to combine both together and start a channel!

How do I get to 100k subs? —Pavle

There is no magical way to getting 100K subscribers, it just comes with passion and patience!

Can you send your link? —Nangyalai
What is you major in college? —Tah

So I am planning on majoring in business. I was pre-med, but I decided to switch it already!

What convinced you to switch majors? —Paige

I switched because the coursework was way too intense, and I was told that it was going to get even more rigorous and I don’t want that, so I decided to switch now.

What would you suggest to someone who wants to start YouTube? —Chase

I would suggest starting a channel and putting a lot of work into it and being yourself and creating content that you would enjoy, as well as your viewers.

What are some basic things that everyone starting a youtube channel should know, in terms of equipment, knowledge etc? —Maham

would start off by getting a nice camera, and lighting, and tripod and then work from there, depending on the types of videos you want to post.

How long did it take you to garner a lot of views? —Hannah

It took me awhile. Some videos would get lots and lots of views, while some got very little amounts of views. I have had my channel for 4 years now.

I have heard some people says that subscribers can be bought. Is it a good idea to buy subscribers or is that even right? —Ismail

I have never heard of subscribers being bought. And if that is the case, it does not matter how many subscribers you have because everything is in the views. Companies want to see how many views you get on average, not how many subscribers.

What made you start to vlog? —Hannah

I started youtube as a way to express my creative mind and my eye for fashion and makeup.

What is your vision for the future of your personal vlog? Do you want to earn money from this or do it just for pleasure? —Piturlea

My youtube started out as me doing it for pleasure, and I still do it just for pleasure, but now I get paid from it as well!

If I understand you well, you are interested in business. In what field do you plan to start? —Piturlea

I plan on starting in the marketing field.

How do you earn from your vlogs? —Hannah

I earn from my vlogs from my network as well as collaborations with companies.

From your personal experience, is there some videos/topics your audience tends to engage with more than others? —Elizabeth

My audience tend to enjoy more back to school related videos, as well as morning and night routine videos!

Being a youtuber and going to college at the same time is the time manageable? —Tah

So, considering I am still taking pre-med courses as I finish up this first semester, I hardly have any time to do anything at all. So it has been extremely difficult to manage youtube and college together.

How do you manage your time between youtube and college? —Ala

I manage my time by getting all of my homework and studying done on certain days of the week and then I leave one day of the week open for when I can edit or film a video.

How much time do you spend on editing a video? —Bianca

It depends on the video that I am editing. An average video takes about 6 total hours to edit. And filming can take between 1-3 hours.
