Stepping Into AuthorTube
I’ve been watching YouTube since 2007, I even remember (and still follow) the same channel I first ever subscribed too. Since then I have gone through many trends on YouTube like following beauty gurus, gamers, cooking channels and anything else you can think of. Of course, there are still a few from those communities that I still watch and love, but now my favorite part of YouTube is the AuthorTube community.
What Is AuthorTube?
The AuthorTube Community on YouTube is all about writers of every kind. From freelancers to published authors this community is filled with people who want to do the same thing-write! Many channels talk about their struggles they have had in their field, what they learn about writing, and sharing their stories in publishing.
The best part of this community is that everyone in it is supportive of each other. Though only a few of them have actually met in person this community makes writers become connected with others and finally not be alone with all of our thoughts and words.
Why Did I Join?
So after years of watching YouTube why do I finally want to become an active member of this YouTube community. For me, it’s about reaching out and connecting. I want to be apart of something bigger than myself. I want to be able to talk to people about my writing experience and offer any advice I can.
I also feel like it is important for my mental health to talk to other people who spend most of their time in their heads. Don't get me wrong I love that I am able to create world and characters, but after a while, it can get lonely when it’s just yourself.
Even though I only posted my first video for AuthorTube yesterday I already have several videos planned out. I hope you go over and check out my channel to see videos about my writing journey.
