In the latest episode of The Vlogger Interviews, I spoke with Erik of ErikTV365, a family vlog based in Dallas, Texas. Erik's made the commitment that he's going to vlog every day for the rest of his life. In the world of YouTube, where gimmicks and imitation sometimes seem like the norm, Erik's channel is a little bit different: it has a purpose.
Erik's a survivor of testicular cancer. He decided to start vlogging during his chemotherapy, when he watched other YouTube family channels, and found that "it boosted my spirits - it help me to realize that there's more than just dwelling on something." He wants his children - and as time went on, his audience - to know that "no matter what obstacles are thrown at them in life, that they can always have a happy day." It's a philosophy he follows on his vlog - and in his life.
Watch the vlog is learn more about how this channel came about, and how Erik maintains his vlogging commitment every day of the year.
