25K Subscribers On YouTube | Milestone

in , , , by Linda B Hurd, September 03, 2018
I am a natural hair product reviewer and just a very positive black quality content creator on YouTube. I have been creating YouTube videos since 2009. My channel started off as an outlet for me to post my spoken word and raps while I was in high school. 

My best friend at that time helped me to edit and film videos. She had also helped to boost my motivation and inspired me to share my voice with the world. She had faith in me to reach my potential to chase my dreams.

I knew that I had a powerful voice. I knew that I had influence. I just did not want to become a sell-out or a carbon copy image of another young female rapper that was striving to become famous. I believed that I was destined for fame, but not at the cost of my sanity.

While in high school my best friend and I had several differences and grew apart. I still wanted to maintain my YouTube channel and my social media pages even though I didn’t have a computer at home. I begged my mama and auntie to understand the importance of getting a computer and internet. They were country bumpkies at its finest and small minded to match it.

By the time I was in 10th grade in 2010, I was still rapping. I went by the nickname that was given to me in middle school Leeny Lynn. I thought that I wanted to be in the music industry as a ghostwriter. By the time I 2011 came, I transformed my rapping channel that had slow growth to my natural hair and music video commentary channel.

I didn’t have anyone really supporting me or sharing my videos to support me. I grind alone and with patience. The fancy video editing equipment I never owned and still do not. In 2016, I purchased my first professional camera. A month ago, I just purchased a ring light and I’m still growing. Just days before September my channel hit 25,000.

I was excited and humbled. I stared at the number for a few seconds before accepting it within my heart. I’m growing. I’m understanding that God knew that this was my time to value how far I have come. I always use to downplay my growth. I’m far from being the boastful type.

At first, I was a little nervous about celebrating this milestone publicly. I brought light to my milestone today because I deserve to celebrate my growth. Without my subscribers inspiring me and showing me unconditional love throughout the years I would not have made it this far. My content would have been died down years ago.

God knew what he was doing when he placed it on my heart to create video content on YouTube. I have reached over 4 million people as of today. I have worked with many brands both on a small to large scale. I have become an influencer and brand!

Most importantly I have never allowed myself to stand in my own way when I came to grow my channel. There have been many times in the past five years of being a natural hair YouTuber that I just wanted to throw the towel in. I compared my growth to other ladies I watched. I found fault in the content I created. I had to dig deep within me to understand my worth and what I had to offer.

I still have more content to create and more people to make smile and intrigue! If you are a subscriber of my YouTube channel I want to take this opportunity to say thank you. I’m excited about the future of my channel.

All the glory goes to the Lord up above! I’m thankful for my 25k subscribers! You can share your thoughts in the comment box below. Thanks so much for reading. Don't forget to subscribe to my email list if you haven't done it already.
