Hello Steemit! My name is Alla, I am a Youtuber and private chef with my own show... Let's do this!!

Hello all Steemers!:)

 

I love the idea of STEEM! I am so excited, happy, thrilled and buzzing to be a part of this amazing community.

My name is Alla and I am 28 years old. I came to England from Latvia alone when I was 14 years old without speaking much English. It was a tough childhood, but I wouldn't change a thing, because it made me who I am now. Right now I live in London with my sister and our cute dog Milo.

A Youtuber for 3 years….

I am part time Youtuber and part time chef… well actually I have about 4 jobs… but that is another story. I love food and cooking is my passion, so 3 years ago I decided to quit my full time job as a head hunter in the Oil and Gas industry after graduating from the London School of Economics and start a Youtube channel.

Today, I have a following of 155,000 fans on my Facebook page and 45,000 on my Youtube channel and I think this could really change the social aspect and the value I could add to Steemit. I specialise in Russian, Latvian and Eastern European Food from Soviet Union times, things that my babushka (grandmother) taught me.

Building a following on youtube…

I want to contribute my knowledge, insights and all the tips and tricks about Youtube, Facebook and Social Media as well as occasional recipes of my favourite desserts and childhood food.

I am self-taught Youtuber....

nobody ever explained to me how and what should be done. All my photography, editing, filming and planning of each recipe, marketing and growing my social media presence is done only by me. I worked so hard for 3 years and I am still struggling.

I know Steem will be so much more exclusive than Youtube for girls and guys like me who want to spread their ideas and share their knowledge whether it’s about food, fashion, beauty, music, travel etc. After reading several articles written by @Cryptoctopus and @rok-sivante's I strongly believe that my participation  will increase the amount of users on Steem, which will ultimately bring in more money for all users!

My friend @wingz told me about this platform and thought I could do well here. At first I didn't believe how it’s possible to make money from things you are doing for free everywhere else? I feel like this is an amazing opportunity to join at this early stage and I hope I could make a massive difference and inspire many readers and viewers along the way. I can't wait to spread the word to my friends and fellow bloggers.

I am very much looking forward to contributing to this wonderful community and connecting with such brilliant minds and talents here.

Thank you for reading, stay tuned for my first Steem cake recipe! 

I even had a shirt made… 

Please feel free to give me advice, feedback if you have any requests or ideas of what you want to see.

I just wanted to thank you ALL for your amazing comments and all the up votes! I can feel the love and support! I am stoked and excited... I cant sleep. Just brainstorming thousand ideas how I can make this even better and bigger. You guys are the best! THANK YOU ALL :) Alla xxx

I would say steem has overtaken YouTube as all youtubers are joining steem and leaving YouTube

·

Youtube has disappointed a lot of people who work day and night to get somewhere, so Im excited about Steemit!!

·
·

You can make money from Google Adsense program and monetize your Youtube videos if you know how to.

·
·
·

I do that, lol it makes me 100 dollars a month..

·
·
·
·

introduce yourself post with food, a puppy, and girls make, 21,000. Writing a post about U.S. air-strikes that kills 100's, or something about global warming to inform the public, make 1-2 dollars. Writing a cheesy comment, make, .20-.50 cents. Trying to not get a condescending attitude towards what posts make the most money...priceless

·
·
·
·

you have an account with 45k subs you need to learn some tricks... cause youtube is not easy if it was that easy everyone would do it... you also need to invest meaning advertising... there are bunch of people who advertise on buses on street sign and etc etc....

·
·

Just being on steemit has already boosted my creativity and production. A community that appreciates my content and ask for more of it. It's not just friends and family showing support..it's a supportive community looking for quality material to watch and share.

·
·
·

Yeah I agree, I am really speechless, I didn't expect such an amazing community, just all the love and support and people who will actually appreciate your work. Love it here so much already!

·
·
·
·

I am really excited to join this community too! Maybe we could team up on a Steemit Dessert Special?!?!

·
·
·
·

I have a character who's a chef trying to cook his way out the hood.. maybe we can collaborate on something too.

Check him out Dirty D's Drunk Cooking Show

Nice to meet you Alla, please support my push up challenge I am also based in the UK and work in the Hospitality sector.

·

Great earning on this post :D

·
·

With youtube having alot of issues i believe they should move their crowd base over here. much more transparent

·

I dont think so, steemit is not killer for youtube but I agree 2-3 years next steemit will more populer than youtube

·
·

Sure steemit will popular as well as some crypto currency will start like steemit.

·
·

youtube is owned buy the richest company in the world that means GOOGLE.... now youtube is as powerfull as google search... nowdays people go watch youtube videos instead of tv shows.... youtube is here to stay! and its here to dominate.... mean while steemit is a blogging site + crypto currency those dont match....

Bring your 45K subscribers here :D

·

hahah will do :)

I don't have a clue about creating video on YouTube and still learning about Facebook. I am not good with all these technologies in my fifties but you sure inspire me to learn and create. Welcome and hopefully Steemit will launch you further.

·

Thank you so much! You see this is great, its never too late to learn and I would love to bring my knowledge and help people understand the grits and bits about it all. I had to teach myself in the last 3 years and Im happy to share it now :)

·
·

Love your enthusiasm and ideas. I am 73 and still very excited about learning new ideas I do yearn for the energy of youth. You can give and help so much with what you are doing. Keep on keepin' on.

Welcome Alla! I've been witness to you slowly learning more and more about Steemit, in our frantic discussions the last few nights. Until you finally clicked and decided to go 'all in'.

You're awesome, best of luck!

·

·

Thank you so much! I appreciate you convincing me to try this out and to learn about it! This all feels surreal and I cant stop smiling! :)))

·
·

It's time to turn this trojan horse into a fully fledged economic society! One step at a time... and you Alla, are one of those steps :)

·
·

This all feels surreal and I cant stop smiling! :)))

I love it!

·

Close the gates..... it is like zombies getting in. Lol. Just kidding. I just did a post on how smart people are here. https://steemit.com/steem/@brianphobos/steemit-has-the-smartest-people-on-social-media-100-proof-inside

·
·

the movement is on

·

So this drivel is partially your fault? Thanks for contributing to messing up what could have been a cool platform for forward thinkers and inventors to use to make the world a better place. I had no idea I needed a better french bread pizza recipe.

I thought you were a bot anyway...

·

Would you have a disscusion with me also?

You'll make 100X what you could make on Youtube here - the democratic is more receptive to young, educated, women. Good Luck!

though you won't need it...

·

Thank you so much :))) Love your username! Positivity will rule the world :) Yeah youtube is becoming more demotivating! Im extremely excited about steemit! :)

Welcome Alla. I shared your post with a few "older" members of the Steem community to get some better exposure ;) Nice youtube channel btw.

·

Oh wow amazing! Thank you so much, very kind of you! :)) Glad you liked my youtube channel! x

·

Thank you so much, just changed, should be working now!

Welcome to Steemit Alla. I think it's great to have you on Steemit. Making the content more diverse and interesting.

·

Hello @chhayll ! Thank you so much, excited to be here! :)

Scrumptious on all levels! thanks for sharing and welcome to Steemland! Namaste :)

·

hehehe cheeky :P thank you so much :)) Namaste!

I'm glad big youtubers can help us grow! I wish I could do more myself, but I have about 700 subscribers on my YT channel, so I'm sure I can do a small difference aswell. Together we try, together we stay, power to the people!

·

Thank you so much! Well its a start, it took me 3 years to get to where I am, of hard work 16 hours a day with no weekends! But it takes time :) Yes power to the people! What is your channel?

·
·

MrShoy :) I just warm hugged you there. Also, I followed u on here, so I can help you with any doubt you have of this place :)

·
·
·

Just checked it out , subscribed and left you a comment hehe! Gaming is huge on youtube :)) Keep going! thanks so much!

·
·
·
·

You made my day, I will probably make a video about you tomorrow if my camera still works :)

Hello Alla, there's a bunch of us video peeps here and i hope we can all learn from each other as we continue to build a bigger and better community. Welcome to Steemit!

·

Hello! thank you so much :) Feel so welcome and loved here, love this community already! Yes for sure we will! :)

You had me hooked at "I came to England from Latvia alone when I was 14 years old without speaking much English. It was a tough childhood, but I wouldn't change a thing, because it made me who I am now." I'm a high school special education teacher who is always looking for ways to inspire students. Your message that your struggles had value because they shaped who you have become needs to be shared. Kids can learn a lot from you!

·

Thanks a lot, that means so much to me. I sometimes dont know how I did things, and managed to stay strong. But here I am :)

A newbie here myself. Got introduced to the idea of steem by a friend, and it sounds awesome. Looking forward to seeing this grow. Happy steeming! :D

·

Yay welcome to you too! Complete newbie myself but super excited and buzzing about this platform :))) Happy steeming!!! :)

·
·

Yeah exactly. Looking at how quickly this has exploded, it can only go from strength to strength. So get it in early and see it grow :)

·
·
·

I know, I'm kinda speechless right now! This all feels unreal!

Looking forward to checking out your youtube channel & happy to have you here

·

aw thanks so much :)) yes do! Let me know what you think ;) x

Sveika Alla! :) Prieks redzēt arī kādu citu no Latvijas šijā portālā. Lai tev viss izdodas.
P.S Piesekoju arī YT :)

·

Sveiki :)) Paldies :) Super ja ir cilvecini no Latvijas :) x

·
·

Oh you are from Latvia? Haha,i can say we live in neighboorhood if we consider our town as a world :)
Im from Poland,i would never thought you are from Latvia.

Welcome! One nice thing about steemit is that you don't have to pay 50% of your income to google and them get taxed by your bank for receiving your adsense money for creating content, it's all in crypto currency :)

Also what happened to your last post ?

·

Agree, youtube system is pretty fucked up with payments, they steal all your money!

·
·
·

yeah I know, you would laugh if you would know how much we get paid, I will do a post on that, because a lot of people have very strong misconceptions about it :) and thank you @gapil

·
·

I do know! i have a youtube channel too, www.youtube.com/gapil

It's ridiculous isn't it? I just got more in one day here than in one year in youtube lol.

·
·
·

I know it really is, I just checked your channel out, good work!! Tell me about it, I will do a post about it soon, but I literally make nothing and spend so much time doing stuff for free!

·

Oh it had an issue, the tag introduce yourself didn't work, so unfortunately I had to repost it :) glad you came back thou!

Wonderful introduction really appreciated and most welcome. looking very attractive and charming.

·

Im really glad you liked it :) Thanks for taking time to read it :)

Well done Alla @allasyummyfood. I can understand what does mean leave your country to find a better life... I did the same and I am in England like you!
This post did make you earn a good amount of money so enjoy it :) and give a kiss to your dog!

·

Oh wow amazing, where did you come from? Thank you so much, it was hard but every step was worth it :) Im still shocked and I just don't believe this! So much support! Will give Milo kisses!

·
·

well... I use this account with my girlfriend so.... I am from Italy and now I'm working not far from Cambridge... my gf Kamila is Polish. We met here in England and we had more or less the same misadventure... Leaving our country to find a better life!

·
·
·

Yeah sounds great! That is all you can really do! :)

·
·
·
·

and is what we did ;)

Hi Alla, Thanks for this post, I am always looking for foody youtubers to give me inspiration and help with my cooking. I enjoy all aspects of cooking and like to create something new for my family each day, so they are constantly getting to try new foods from around the world.
I have a facebook group called Vegans, Veggies and Carnivores.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/589261354570920/
Only a small group, but we enjoy sharing tips, recipes and photos of our meals.
I will be checking out your channel for more inspiration.
This is a dish I did yesterday, Its called Beef Rendang and it was so hot and spicy, but really delicious.

·

Hello @ladydoe! That looks really delicious! Sure, you will love my channel, I have over 300 recipes and they are easy, quick and yummy :) I used to be raw foodie for 6 months, when I lived in Thailand. It was great!

·
·

Thanks, with 300 that should help me keep going with having lots of different meals :)

·
·
·

hehehe of course ;)

Welcome to Steemit! I look forward to seeing your future posts! Do you cook Latino cuisine?

·

Thank you so much :))) I have never tried cooking Latino cuisine, but I love a challenge! If I get more people voting for that, I will attempt to make it :) Any specific dish you are proud of?

·
·

Anything from Puerto Rico is my favorite. Something like Alcapurrias, Mofongo, Arroz con Gandules, Pernil Asado, Fricasé de Pollo, etc. I've never had Russian food before, though. Would love to try!

·
·
·

Wow I have never tried any of these recipes, I might have to discover a bit :) Yes Russian food is delicious as well :) I will teach you :P
