If you don’t know this already, I’m Sasha one of the creators of Fandomsnews.com, pleasure to make your acquaintance : ). My Booktubing story started not to long ago in late February, 2013. I always loved reading ever since I was little, but two things really made reading difficult. Those were my eyesight (which luckily improved) and my Dyslexia. Once I got older reading became easier as I developed new skills. There was just one problem… WHO DO HAVE BOOK-TALK WITH? This is where YouTube comes into play.
There are all sorts of people you can meet over YouTube with similar hobbies/interests as you. Funny enough, before I even met Daisy, I watched her booktubing videos on youtube! YouTube lets you talk about things you love to people who love it as much as you do. This lead me to make Abookutopia. I always watched book tubers but never really thought about making videos expressing my “feels” about the books I loved.
But one day that changed and I spontaneously decided to make a video, wonderful decision! Three months later I now have 19 videos and 1,000+ subscribers. I make videos on book reviews, book challenges, book trailers, movie trailer remakes, fandoms, book to movie adaption talk and much, much more. My progression with youtube so far is pretty good but its still a work in progress. Im getting a new video camera along with video lighting and microphones, and by getting these things I strive to make my account the best it can be. T
