It’s scary. How someone can change the way they present themselves though a screen, ultimately, just to earn more money. 

There are many popular YouTubers out there who, in my opinion, aren’t being completely… “real”. I believe that some sell themselves in order to appeal more to their target audience, who are mostly made up of young teens, and in some cases take advantage of them. 

I think perhaps this is why I’m putting a lot of thought into what I say and do online, especially on YouTube, as I want to ensure I’m coming across as I me, and not someone who just wants a lot of followers. (Because that’s not why I do this). 

What are your thoughts on this subject? You may completely disagree with me. Maybe it could be a blog post idea – if you do write a response, make sure you send me the link so I can read it. >.<

    It’s a real thing alright a girl who came across and very sweet and kind on her youtube mental health channel turned out to be a fake and just suckering people in. I sent her 2 books as gifts as her fans send her stuff she told me ‘Don’t send anymore and take a grammar class I think it would help you!’ So that hurt for the moment a few days ago but went onto to write on and forget about her. I didn’t see it coming but people aren’t always who they appear to be. She was rude and it sucks to her.

    I’ve been actually playing around with posting the same topic on my blog. But, I always fear the backlash from people saying I’m not being supportive of fellow bloggers. I have no intention of calling anyone out but I’ve seen some practices that really have bothered me over the last year. But, Sunday morning I was really ticked about what someone did on IG. Someone I follow posted about an account she created and asked her followers to follow her there. Of course, she gained a ton of followers instantly and followed none of them back. So, yes, I’m tired of the whole people who are only concerned about the numbers and not truly being a part of the blogging/book community. Maybe I’ll write that post after all – lol.
