We often face many challenges when on the long road to success. It doesn’t matter what your goals are, it’s inevitable that you will run into some roadblocks along the way. If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have a YouTube channel. If you didn’t know that check it out here. It’s a channel about simply stylish living, the same as this blog.
The challenges that I face with YouTube is mainly growing my channel. I feel that I have great content, but I can’t seem to gain more subscribers. No matter how much I promote my videos, I cannot get any more subscribers as well as views. It has gotten extremely frustrating, but I am still pushing. I’d be lying if I said views and subscribers didn’t matter to me because it does. I want my channel to grow and the only way for it to is to have both of those things. Also, on some videos I can break 100+ views and on some I can’t even break 15. YouTube is pretty hit or miss when it comes to getting views.
The biggest challenge that I face is that I always compare myself to other YouTubers and I already know that is a no-no. It is difficult though, because someone could have 100 subscribers and upload the same content that I upload and by the end of the week they have 500 subscribers. Sometimes you just want to rip you hair out…figuratively speaking.
I really try to focus on my own content because at the end of the day we’re all on the same platform and have different goals. I always try to keep that in mind and try to keep plugging along. One day I will have a good amount of subscribers as well as views. Maybe I’ll even get to collab with a fellow YouTuber, which is actually one of my goals! All I can do is keep going and keep my head up!
