Recently, I was talking to my sister about Youtube favorites. Everyone seems to have one. I told her about mine and she laughed. Then I asked her about hers and I was like "ok, you are weird." Apparently, she is hooked on watching dermatologist/facialist pop pimples. Eww! My husband is more logical, he watches the DIYs. My daughter is all about one person comedy skits. Both boys like to watch other people play video games. Seriously, they can go an entire weekend without playing a video game themselves.
I thought it would be interesting to start the conversation about Youtube guilty pleasures. Despite our best intentions, on paper, the things we watch on Youtube can be strange. You know what my number one Youtube obsession is? You can't judge! I like to watch people clean their houses. Not in a creepy, french maid costume way, but in a motivational way. If I can watch one or two, then I'm ready to tackle my household chores. Works every time!
My second favorite is Booktube videos. Here is what makes my book Youtube obsession weird...typically these videos are made by teenagers or college students. Let's face the fact, I'm biologically old enough to be their mom and that makes it disturbing. I'll just chalk it up to contributing to their college fund. They need a million views to make $$$, right?
Last obsession, I love a good Stitchfix unboxing. I don't even know why. I get my own Stitchfix box every month. I think it's the element of surprise that intrigues me. I can waste an entire night watching people open their StitchFix box, tell me how much it costs, and holding it up to the camera. In writing, this Youtube thing is weird!
I'm interested to hear what your Youtube obsession is. What are your favorite kind of Youtube videos? Do you have a favorite Youtuber?
