YouTube: Dislikes & the Direction of My Content

Lately my days have consisted of jotting down a thousand ideas for YouTube videos, recording said videos, and editing like mad. I never thought that I'd like having my own channel, and even though I have just started this venture, I am loving every aspect of it.

The other day I received my first "dislike" on a video and honestly, I was a little bummed. My main thought was, "I've never disliked a video in my life - even if I didn't like it. So, why do people feel compelled to dislike any (non-offensive) video at all? Especially when we are all trying to have fun and share random/silly aspects of our lives..." And I'm okay with that dislike - whoever you may be. You can dislike my video, it's fine. It's your right.

And you know what's funny? Seeing that thumbs down icon with a 1 next to it underneath my video inspires me to make even better videos. Videos with real content and videos with content that others might find shallow or girly. Because I'm not trying to make money with this, I'm not trying to get 1,000 subscribers, or tons of likes - I'm just doing this for fun. I'm doing it for me. There is also a desire for me to create videos that discuss aspects of my life that I tend to keep under wraps, because who knows, it might make someone going through that same situation feel less alone.

And if you're following me on YouTube, thank you! It means a lot to me.

In a few weeks, I plan on adding more inspiring content and I hope that you will stay with me on my journey.

Is there anything that YOU would like to see on my channel? I am open to suggestions.


  1. i'm with you. i'm not doing my blog or my youtube for anyone else except me. i have never thumbs downed anything either! if i didn't like it, i just didn't come back to see more videos. easy as that! ah well. i'm really excited to see what else you have in store. i am not inspired a ton just yet, but i do have some ideas floating around. i have a feeling when my husband works late this weekend, i may find the time to make the ones i am thinking of!

    1. Thanks, Yelle. I'm glad you understand where I am coming from!
      I have another video coming out this Wednesday, but I can't wait to see what else you will be sharing.

      Hopefully you had some time to make some videos this past weekend. :)

  2. Oh I'm excited! Once I get a chance to listen I so will! ❤️

    1. Thanks Amanda. I can't wait to hear what you think. <3
