I’m on my way to 80 subscribers on my you tube channel which is a bit of a daymaker. I posted one of my original songs in response to a video of Diana Vickers of the X Factor (who is seriously popular on youtube it seems!) and am getting more hits than ever on one of my original songs.
I can take negative criticism. Some people are on youtube just for the purpose of spreading the hate however today I recieved a comment on my new video in the made over Burnfm studio. It was someone Greek. They said ‘you are a little fat.’ …I was a bit taken aback by this. Fat? You could only see my face and a little bit of my shoulders in the video…including a hint of collarbone. Perhaps I have a fat chin, but I am not fat, and even if I was, my video was nothing to do with weight or appearance.
This is what I don’t understand about youtube. Some of the people are utter fools, and some are lovely. Why try and knock someone’s confidence however? I’ve also been called irritating ‘because I talk too much and really need to find something I can be good at in life’ and ‘nothing special.’ This however, is usually from people with far less subscribers than myself! haha!
