RE: What is ASMR?

in #asmr3 years ago

She is beautiful. I have noticed that people who are successful on YouTube, with large viewing figures and earning lots of money, tend to be very physically attractive. Do you suppose having the good fortune to be good looking is a major factor in determining whether you ‘make it’ as a vlogger?

Generally, yes!

Vlogging and making videos in general are a visual medium. If you are attractive, you have a better probability of attracting attention. Facial symmetry is known to be considered beautiful and attractive since it's a signal of good health and evolution programmed us to notice people of reproductive age in good health.

However, in the early days of YouTube, I wrote about a vlogger named Peter. He wasn't young and attractive although he had lots of charm and perseverance.

On August 18th, 2006 I wrote

"Congrats to geriatric1927! Peter, aged 79, is now the #1 Most Subscribed Channel of All Time! If you haven't seen him yet, go watch this gentleman as he talks about his long and interesting life. His style is straightforward, yet captivating. Peter has become an inspiration to the entire YouTube community."

So there are definitely factors that increase the probability of making it as a vlogger or YouTuber in general. Things like being good looking, charming, confident and interesting are such factors, and the more you have, the better! Luck is always a factor in success too. Being in the right place at the right time is helpful. You can give yourself more chance of being lucky by putting yourself out there and socializing a lot, but we all only have 24 hours in a day, and random things in life can wreck our plans.

So physical and mental talent, combined with perseverance and luck can go a long way towards making it as a vlogger. I'm glad we have blogging as an alternative which takes the visual side of things out of the picture, or at least relies less on it.

Thanks for the reply and question, which I tried to answer but just ended up rambling; its late! :D

Have a nice weekend!
