Dear Hope: Should I Become a Beauty Vlogger

Dear Hope,beauty vlogger
I’ve been thinking about becoming a beauty vlogger. I love fashion. I enjoy taking pictures of my outfits. I’m always sharing my fashion tips with my friends. I read every fashion magazine I can. Seriously I love love love everything about it. My two best friends are always encouraging me to start a YouTube channel. So I’m thinking about it. The problem is I know there are so many already. I don’t want to sound selfish and I don’t expect to be famous, but I do want people to watch them. And what if I get a ton of mean comments? I don’t know. I think it would be fun to do it, but do you think it’s worth it?

Dear Vlogger,
I think becoming a beauty vlogger sounds like an awesome idea. If you’re passionate about it, go for it.

I’m not going to lie, there are many YouTubers out there, but I think there is room for everyone. Each person can bring his or her own uniqueness to it.

When you first start, be patient with yourself and the process. Don’t worry about the numbers of likes and subscribers. Just be yourself. Show everyone you believe and care about the content you’re putting out there. Plus, if fashion is something you love, making time for your passion is always worth it!

Although most people will be supportive with their comments, there are some haters out there. Here’s what fellow beauty vlogger Ingrid Nilsen has to say. “Sometimes those mean things sting. I’m not going to tell you to ignore it, because that’s not what I do. I allow myself to feel those bad emotions, but then I get through it- getting through something is much more powerful than ignoring it.” I think Ingrid says it best. Work through those negative comments, but never let them stop you from being you.

Have fun and good luck with your channel. Let us know when you post your first video.

Thank you for being brave and sending in your question.

Dear Hope
