Y is for YouTube

What else is there to do while eating lunch than watch YouTube videos? Seriously, what?


Day 25 of the A to Z Challenge is about YouTube and the many YouTuber’s I love to watch! (Click here for a full list of topics)

Sometimes I wish I could go back in time to when YouTube first began and start putting up videos. Then maybe I would be a YouTuber today, making money by making videos. Wouldn’t that be awesome? As it is, I only have a few videos up of my ratties and my dog. I have 4 subscribers. Woo! Go me!

My favourite thing to do while I eat my lunch each day is to watch YouTube. It’s a nice break in between all the stuff I need to do in the day and gets my mind off of whatever I was working on before getting my lunch ready. I have a bunch of channels that I am subscribed to and a few favourite YouTubers that I watch religiously.

My favourite YouTubers, in no particular order, are:

Grace Helbig – She is just that nice kind of awkward weird funny that I like.

Hannah Hart – My Drunk Kitchen is hilarious and Hannah is just a wonderful human being.

PeanutButterGamer – His Let’s Play channel can be absolutely hilarious and his main channel as well.


JonTron – He makes very silly gaming videos with his bird, Jacques.


Rhett and Link – Their weekday show Good Mythical Morning can be equal parts entertaining and gross (They do food challenges sometimes…).

I have more YouTubers that I watch, but these are the ones I watch more often and enjoy the most!

Who are your favourite YouTubers and why?

  • I’m a YouTube junkie, mostly because I’m an old-TV junkie and there is a metric buttload of old TV out there. One of my favorites is RwDt09, who has an incredible number of openings of old TV shows and who builds videos showing what was on TV on a given night in a given year. Another good one is The Museum of Classic Chicago TV, which has a website at fuzzymemories.tv: these are mostly interstitials, ads, station ID’s, newscasts, sign-ons and sign-offs, and the like. There are a few people who have hours of live TV from the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated; those are fascinating to watch over 50 years later, especially for those of us who lived through it (I was 7 when it happened). Fantastic stuff.

    • It’s so cool that YouTube provides a platform for all those old videos that would have just disappeared from the public eye otherwise. Or at least be difficult to find.
      Thanks for the comment 🙂

  • For the A to Z challenge I’ve included a YouTube video for every day of the challenge. Pretty cool considering I’m blogging about the 1940’s and radio was the big thing back then. I’m surprised by all I’ve been able to find. Although my “Y” is cheating since it is a video of a radio program 😉 Since you’re a writer, do you know about BookTube? Someone introduced me to this wonderful sub-segment of YouTube last summer. I’ve created a few videos myself, but still need to set up a plan to be more consistent. I don’t have many followers either 😉

  • Hello! I didn’t realise you could follow people on YouTube like that – even though I noticed last time i went and looked tat i have a few followers myself… duh! I’ll have check of the ones you mention. Trouble is – theres only so much time in the day! I found it very hard finding where your comments are… ~Liz Congrats on getting to the end! http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com (please don’t use Twitter of Blogger links, they don’t work!)

  • I have to admit I don’t have youtube channels that I follow religiously. There’s a lot more on there than I realised though – I tend to watch funny cat and dog videos (guilty dogs is a firm fave, as is cats stealing dog beds), and other silly stuff like that. I recently found out just how much educational and entertainment stuff there is on youtube but as it is I don’t know where to start. Maybe the best way to go is to begin with the channels you recommend!
