Since the last VidCon, what are the changes you’ve seen to the YouTube platform/community, if any, and do you feel those changes are for the better?
This is my 7 year anniversary on YouTube, and there have been so many changes to the platform and the community. I like the new comment system, it really makes things easier for me. The YouTube space is awesome, it feels like there is a lot of support for content developers. It does seem a little more cutthroat now….it seemed like more of a family before, everyone helping and looking out for each other….but still a lot of great people and so much talent 🙂
Part of a successful channel is regularly uploading content, but if you had to choose only ONE video of your own that best defines you and your channel, which would it be?
That’s so hard to answer because I do so many types of videos — comedy, vlogs, singing, but my favorite video is “Things I Don’t Like.”
If you could trade places with another YouTuber for a day, who would it be and why?
I love Miranda Sings (Colleen) because she is hilarious and gets to hang out with so many cool YouTubers!
What’s your favorite comment one of your videos has ever received? The weirdest?
I like seeing comments from people who are inspired to do videos because of me…it makes me feel so great. Weird comments — well there are a lot, but probably when people talk about my feet.
Tell me something about the future of your channel. What’s something you haven’t done yet that you’d like to do? Whether it’s a collab with a certain person, a different kind of format, or something else!
I would like to do some adventure videos — going different places and doing crazy things sounds like fun.
