>Tfw the only people I recognize from the top 8 are Catie and iJustine[...]
I facepalmed when I later realized that I've actually been subscribed to Natalie Tran for years. Didn't recognize her IRL name at first though, and didn't bother reading the bio for all in the top 8 either. Her channel is good, well, at least it used to be. I'll have to update myself on Ms. Tran's latest videos later.
Laina is pretty great and all, but at some point I realized that I was following way too many vloggers (which again was way too time consuming) and decided to have a clean-up. As a result, I ditched Laina along with a few others, in favour of Catie and "Beckie0".
Beckie0 is a hilarious and very intelligent young vlogger from the UK in case anyone wonders. There are many similarities between her and Catie (if they knew each other they'd be besties, no doubt), and I love her from the bottom of my heart.
I could probably write a book about how great she is, and why I love everything about her, but I'll much rather let Beckie do the job for me with this short, yet lovely introduction video she made a year ago (see embed video).
One of the few female YouTubers I actually already subscribe to. Had only seen her Pokémon voice impressions before your VidCon video was released. Luckily I recognized her face in it and paid her channel a visit again, and I've have been subbed ever since. Funny, talented and super cute. Hard not to like.
Hmm, the "Camp Takota" trio, ey? Remember you mentioning them in a few tweets in the past. Well, after just watching 4-5 random videos from each of the three, I can at least safely say that neither of the Harts are my cup of tea. Grace is okay, but then again a vlogger, which I already have covered by much more unique and awesome people. Not going into detail about what I like/dislike about either though, as this post is already far too long for its own good.
>Coleen Ballinger (Miranda Sings)
Eh...I'm more disturbed than impressed.
As far as I can tell, she has only uploaded 6 videos the past year. I don't subscribe to inactive channels, so meh.
Anyhow, thanks for all the suggestions guys.
Let's keep them coming.
