If you follow me on social media you will know I made it to the top 30 of the Top Vlogger competition for Feel Unique.
To say I was shocked was an understatement.
I also was really proud of my achievement and it really boosted my confidence.
I write this blog and have my YouTube channel because I enjoy it but it’s also nice, once in a while to be recognised for the hard work you do so getting picked out of hundreds of entries was a fantastic achievement.
Ok, I didn’t get in to the top 4 but that really doesn’t matter to me and someone I know did which is amazing, I am so frickin’ excited for them.
The thing is, I don’t want to be a YouTube superstar or a full time blogger so what does it matter anyway? I entered to prove I was capable and I am.
I know some people were really upset they didn’t get through and you know what, it proves how much they care, and it also proved how much I didn’t because I wasn’t affected by it.
If you are a subscriber to my YouTube channel and you comment and engage in some way then that is what I really care about. In fact I realise in everything I do I care about building community, the events I put on and the people I surround myself with.
I think in everything I do community is at the heart.
I feel good making others feel good and I also enjoy and thrive on praise. It really motivates me to do more.
I am so proud of making top 30 and the moral of the story is that if you work hard enough it will happen. Don’t think it won’t…you are awesome so believe in yourself and the work you do.
