The Vlogger Interviews: OnlyWeekDays

About this interview:
Adam and Luke are high school students in the small town of Blandford, in the south of England, a town best known, they tell me, for the Great Dorset Steam Fair.  For the past year or so, they've been experimenting with their YouTube channel, OnlyWeekDays.  Now that school's out, they're hoping to spend some quality time on the channel this summer and begin to develop it further.  Even though they're in the earliest chapters of their YouTube story, their friends and local residents have already taken notice.  Other students have been inspired to try their hand at creating YouTube channels.  In this interview, we'll discuss their efforts at creating a channel, and how YouTube and online video are becoming the preferred source for video entertainment.

The Vlogger Interviews: "The Family YouTube"

About this interview:
If YouTube had ambassadors to the uninitiated, there's a family in Florida, there's a family in Florida that would probably be ideal for the job.  A mom and three of her kids all have YouTube channels; one (Fur) is a YouTube partner.  Creating videos is their passion; YouTubers are their friends.  They create separately and together, with mom (and dad) keeping an eye on things.   They are probably one of the most spirited, optimistic examples of the emerging 21st century family.

Part Two this weekend!

Featuring Fur, AntinnyWorld, DrewDudeTV and their mom, HappySuuz

The Vlogger Interviews: TheGoodKyle

About this interview:
The gaming community on YouTube is probably one of the largest and most active online communities, driven by a massive and growing gaming industry.   Kyle (TheGoodKyle) is both a YouTuber and a gamer, and has been creating online content on a regular basis since last October.  While some of his content is gameplay related, he also shares his opinions and perspectives on gaming.  He recently created a written response to periodic claims that video gaming, in and of itself, leads to violence in real life.  Like many on YouTube, he's found  enormous online community to share his specific passion.
