Non-Fictional Blog post: success rooted in youtube




Shane Dawson started on YouTube and has since had movie deals, television deals, and book deals. Shane is a daily vlogger, parody maker and his channel offers news reports and challenge videos, everyday stuff, and original music videos. He is currently on a book tour with his book I Hate My Selfie and is touring hot spots of the U.S. His girlfriend Lisa is also a YouTube as Lisbug and they often make the cutest “shisa” videos. Lisa has also had amazing job opportunities through YouTube and is even working with yahoo on a web show.
Superfruit is a YouTube channel of two friends Scotty Hoying and Mitch Grassi and they are in a acapella group called Penatonix and had a Christmas album be on the top charts all year round, and won a Grammy this year. They have weekly favorites and will even tell you there song pick of the week. Penatonix has celebrity fans including Miley Cyrus and more. Penatonix is a trail blazing group, with chart topping hits and spreads much of their music on YouTube; Also creating amazing music videos with original ideas and their own signature flare.
Mamrie hart is a YouTuber, who makes drinks and has a web series called You deserve a drink! She has another web series called Hey USA! With Grace Helbig and gets to travel all around America to film. They also made a movie together called Camp Takoda.  She also has a spin off YouTube deserve a drink where she has YouTube stars and its super fun and cute with her countless outrageous puns.
Troye Sivan is a YouTuber whose fame is actually rooted when he was being shipped with Tyler Oakley (we all know they dated ;) on YouTube, before YouTube he was actually small town actor in Australia. He is now more credited for his EP TRXYE, releasing singles like “happy little pill” and “gasoline”. Troye is not a regular YouTuber, he doesn’t have a schedule on when he releases content, he just kind of does. Which for the viewer is extremely frustrating for someone who releases great videos every once in a blue moon. Like his videos are bomb, but with working on his album his YouTube career is suffering.
Colleen Ballinger or better known as Miranda sings is a parody YouTuber who doubles as a crazy, innocent, dumb girl with crazy lipstick that thinks she can sing. She has a book, 3.5 million subscribers and 406 videos. She was on True life: I’m famous online where she talked with the struggle of uploading content regularly and the burden it puts on her relationship. I don’t like her, which is really odd I know because she’s really well-known but her double personality isn’t cute. I don’t like her overbearing personality and it doesn’t make me laugh, I do however like her own personal vlogs where she is colleen. She’s got way more subscribers on “Miranda’s” channel though, and I understand but it’s not for me.

Max no sleeves is a YouTuber from Boston but moved out to LA with his girlfriend at the time Jenna Mowrey or Jenna marbles, and can COMPLETELY thank her for his YouTube career and has. He even says he wouldn’t have started if it wasn’t for her, but no one would even know his name to be honest. Max is awesome but as soon as he and Jenna split he kind of fizzled out. His content is still good, fun videos, relatable, but he lost all of Jenna’s audience, which is the whole web. He honestly deserves more credit his Snapchat is hilarious and his YouTube channel is totally awesome but lacks an audience.
