YouTube—How I Broadcast Myself

15 Feb

For me YouTube has always been a way to view music videos of favorite songs (because let’s face it, MTV hardly shows them anymore) and watch reviews and commercials of upcoming movies and games. It’s my ticket to as-I-want-it media when television just can’t keep up.

As I may have mentioned in earlier posts, I really love to crochet. Because I’m self-taught, I often seek out tutorials on the web. YouTube is a great way to find such tutorials (and tutorials for almost anything else). Because of other crafters out there I have learned many different new techniques.

However, YouTube isn’t really just a way to view videos; millions of people use it to get their talents out there. There have been multitudes of people discovered through YouTube (including some popular musical artists). Even I have dabbled in uploading videos to YouTube, although none are comparable to videos out there with thousands of views. Most recently, I uploaded a video I created for my Foundations of English for New Media class.

If anyone is interested, here is a list of some of my favorite channels on YouTube.

Crochet Geek (for my crafting needs)

Billboard Goddess (for my trending music needs)

CDZA (they kind of do parody music videos with classical instruments)

Ray William Johnson’s =3 channel (funny videos)
