I have seen so many people complaining that the bigger YouTubers are out of touch and difficult to relate to these days (see post from Blogger Caity Lou) and just too polished.

Therefore, as a small YouTuber myself, I wanted to give you a list of all my favourite YouTubers, AND keep this list updated, so please, if you have any YouTubers you love than comment on this post!

I have put them in alphabetical order for you to make it easier.
