The Ultimate Dating Vloggers
We’re consuming so much media. Books (both paper and electronic), magazines (again both tree and e-ink based formats), movies, music and so much more. With the rise of user-generated content, we’re now not just relying on the studios and production houses to provide us with captivating and emotional materials. People like us are the very people we want to be entertained by bloggers, podcasters and vloggers. These are the new creators of entertainment today and they are continuously introducing us to some incredibly creative content that many well known producers haven’t yet dreamed of. They are breaking boundaries.
But why are they so successful, especially if they have smaller budgets? What makes them so fascinating? Perhaps we enjoy their authenticity, the notion that real life people are out there figuring it all out and willing to share it with you. We get to live vicariously through them and feel like we’re just old friends catching up. After all, who did you go to for dating advice before vloggers?
When it comes to video, vloggers (aka video bloggers) are hitting it big time! Thousands of homespun YouTubers are tackling the conversation of what it’s like for millennials in the dating space with apps like Tinder, Grindr, and all other social media platforms connecting singles. And they’re listening. In 2014 a study by Variety Magazine showed that US teenagers are more influenced by popular vloggers than they are by A list celebrities. YouTube especially has seen their partnership program grow by 50% continuously for three straight years, half of whom are earning six figure benefits from their content.
We’ve put together the ULTIMATE dating vloggers list. These dating extraordinaires share the dos and don’ts, ups and downs and everything in between. They truly get how tough it is out there and by implementing just a few of their tips and tricks we’re certain your next date will be a hit!
