So for those of you that don’t watch YouTubers this post might go over your heads, but for those of you that do – I think you’ll agree with the point i’m about to make. They’re lifesavers. Whether they’ve actually helped you through a difficult part of your life through a message in a video or just made you smile each day, they really do help to make our lives better and happier and I don’t think we can thank them enough. The internet, despite its downfalls, can be a pretty cool place. Earlier this evening i was listening to the podcast “Ear Biscuits with Rhett and Link” and they were interviewing my favourite YouTube star, Grace Helbig.
Now, I follow her on every social media platform there is and I know what she’s up to (not in a creepy way… you fangirls/boys know what I mean!) and how busy she is but listening to her list all the projects and ventures she’s created and accomplished this year alone really made me think about how dedicated she is. I know she gets paid a substantial amount of money but creativity, drive and enthusiasm cannot be bought.
Her major projects this year include:
– Starring in (and chelping create) Camp Takota, a full length feature film available to purchase on iTunes
– Writing a book, Grace’s Guide: “The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-Up” ready for pre-order now (Release date: 21 October 2014)
– Filming a pilot for television channel E!
– Writing and filming a travel web series with fellow YouTube star Mamrie Hart, called Hey USA!
– Creating her own podcast “Not Too Deep with Grace Helbig” which is available to download on iTunes/SoundCloud
As well as all this, she still manages to film, edit and upload three videos a week to her “it’s grace” channel which keep us all laughing and i’d just like to take this time to appreciate her effort, and the effort of all YouTubers, and say thank you for making our days a little brighter – as cliché and cheesy as that may sound, I know that you’ll feel the same. Only yesterday a trending topic on Twitter was #WeAppreciateGrace, which she saw and acknowledged on Tumblr, and i’m so glad she did because she needs to know that we’re all so grateful.
Here are all the places you can find Grace:
