- We kicked the chat off with a question about why our guest Oghosa, and other members of our audience chose YouTube as their platform
- — Sincerely, Oghosa (@SincerelyOghosa)Wed, May 11 2016 17:03:17A1: in 2010, social media was a completely different & I knew I had a big personality that couldn't fit on a blog. So it was YT! #bloggersoc

- — Deola Adebiyi (@d3ola)Wed, May 11 2016 17:11:07I've always wanted to do it but there were no resources. Started last year, now the channel is running #bloggersoc https://twitter.com/BloggersOC/status/730442550872432640 …
- Next we asked what the key to a successful YouTube channel is...
- — Sincerely, Oghosa (@SincerelyOghosa)Wed, May 11 2016 17:15:23I'd say hard work, unique content and not giving up. https://twitter.com/bloggersoc/status/730444896645980160 …
- — Sincerely, Oghosa (@SincerelyOghosa)Wed, May 11 2016 17:18:04A2: YouTube is very saturated now so having 'good content' is great. But having unique content that is good is helpful too. #bloggersoc
- — Don't Touch The Hair (@DontTouchHair)Wed, May 11 2016 17:15:46A2. In my opinion, (1) authentic personality, (2) engaging content, and (3) humor. #bloggersoc https://twitter.com/BloggersOC/status/730444896645980160 …
- Question three was about unexpected stories from YouTubers
- — Sincerely, Oghosa (@SincerelyOghosa)Wed, May 11 2016 17:25:17A3: Once I cried as a vid I edited for hours got bad views. I have 2 million views but that's no guarantee a video will do well! #bloggersoc
- — Te-Erika Patterson (@Te_Erika)Wed, May 11 2016 17:22:11I am still SHOCKED when people recognize me on the street. Vlogging is a lonely job and I forget that people actually watch. #bloggersoc
- Next up we asked what would make life easier as a YouTuber, and the answers were very varied
