You'r so lucky! you meet One Direction and I'm dying just to see them in a concert :) ahah Do you have like a job besides being an youtuber and do you make money being one? thanks

Asked by ritwix

They were really nice guys! :) Youtube is my job and I do make money from it yes. I’m very very lucky that my job is also my hobby x

If you had to go into a Youtuber Hunger Games, who do you think would win? Go out first? and who would you want to ally yourself with? Its a weird question I know haha! xxx

Funnily enough, I’ve had this conversation before haha I would try and ally myself with Louis as I think he would win (for sure), I think Tanya would go out first because she would probably curl up into a cute little ball and close her eyes (although i’d probably do that too…) I definitely wouldn’t run into the middle for a weapon, i’d run straight for the woods. haha x

How did youtube to become your actual job and not just a hobby?

It started to become my job when I started earning money through it, through adverts and joining a network. It then meant I could spend more time filming videos and creating content as I was able to give up my current retail job to do what I loved even more than I already was :)

Do you think it is exciting or annoying to see young, upcoming new YouTubers?

Asked by jessearmatage

SO exciting! I love watching new youtubers who are so full of confidence and make me happy when watching them. There are some seriously talented people out there who deserve so many more subscribers x

do you ever feel by making videos & blog posts about anxiety you are possibly making it a popular "thing" for your followers to have ? .... please do not take this the wrong way ! I love you so much & your videos never fail to make me smile ❤️xx

I hope not, I do try to reiterate that it’s very easy to self diagnose. I think it’s important to reassure those who are worried about anxiety or feel alone though. The majority of questions I get asked are about it so I feel like giving back to those who are worried is beneficial for them. I’d rather speak out than say nothing at all. Although will always advise that people seek professional advice as i’m no doctor, I can only go by experience :) 

Has anyone ever used your anxiety against you? I was once told I wasn't a good friend because my anxiety made me negative, and hearing that destroyed me, just wondering if you've ever experienced anything similar and how you dealt with it.

All the time. It’s a very easy thing for someone to manipulate you with. I deal with it by completely ignoring them, which tends to wind them up as it hasn’t affected you. Just remember that it’s a real low blow and you should be questioning the relationship you have with that person if they do it often x

Do you and other youtubers feel completely yourself in front of the camera? Like I know you're pretty relaxed but do you act different off camera, even a little bit?xx

When I am feeling sad, I tend to turn the camera off or just not film, or i’ll try and stay cheery just so i don’t put a huge downer on the videos but besides that, I am always myself. I feel quite comfortable in front of a camera now as it’s been a fair few years. People can often tell if i’m having a bad day, and I think it’s quite nice as we’re not all perfect :) 

Although you love it, is it hard being a youtuber like yourself, is there more to the job then just filming? thank you x

Asked by zoelladreams

There is a lot more to it yes. Emails, Opportunities that YouTubers might be involved in, Sorting out events & meetups, Meetings for up and coming things (Oooo mysterious - an example being the book, that has taken up a lot of time), writing up articles in magazines (myself and Louise are ambassadors for Shout magazine each month), photoshoots for press, tv things (like loose women), editing takes a long time for me (i’m a bit slow and a perfectionist), especially at the moment as i’m doing it everyday on my second channel. There is also a lot of networking and then there is sponsorships with brands that a youtuber might be working with. Blogging (although i’m just plain crap at that haha) but that involves taking the photos, editing them, writing them up and a lot of people do this daily. Alongside all these things there might also be travelling for certain meetings or things like vidcon which can throw you off a bit. I also like to try and stay on top of all my social media, so i’ll be reading comments a lot on my channels, taking down requests for videos, replying to some comments, tweeting, instagramming etc :) I wouldn’t change it for the world although there is definitely more to it than just filming :)
