We recently talked to WeirdoMC, a Minecraft Youtuber who, despite his age, is doing surprisingly well. With more than two thousand subscribers, and releasing videos every week, this kid is onto something.
Here’s a typical video on his channel:
And now, here’s the interview:
Tell us a bit about yourself?
Well I’m 16 and for most of my life I have loved entertaining people and have always wanted to take up a career of some sort doing just that, aside from that I have a passion or rap and making youtube videos.
Do you have a day job? If so, what is it?
I do not have a job but am looking at a few places to apply like Cici’s Pizza and Chicken Salad Chick.
What’s the best perk of being a youtuber?
The best part of being a youtuber is probably the interaction with fans during live streams and the overall ability to take the audiences criticism and use it to better my videos and in some cases myself.
What’s the greatest challenge?
The greatest challenge by far is finding the time, previously this wasn’t a problem but now I’m trying to be more attentive towards family and friends it has been a gargantuan challenge. There just isn’t enough time in the day to balance school, spending time with family and friends, rap and then youtube and give them all the time they need.
Who inspired you to start creating videos?
Really I kind of just got bored one day at my great grandfathers house because of hurricane sandy and decided I would post some videos on YouTube I never actually had the intent to keep growing. But if I had to say someone it would probably be BlueXephos or JoePassGaming.
What is it like, watching your channel grow?
It’s absolutely phenomenal, that’s the only word for it, being able to have more than 2,000 people subscribe and like what I post is crazy that’s way more people than are in my school and I have a pretty big, I don’t know it’s just like…wow
What does the future hold for your channel?
Honestly I don’t know seeing as to how I’ve been spending more time rapping and some other stuff it’s been a challenge putting the time needed into YouTube however the plan for the near future is to get my videos back on track, I also plan in the future to add some music of my own to my channel but that’s a ways away and I even have a couple of series with some friends that I have planned that I am going to keep a secret for now.
What’s some advice you’d give to those trying to get started in the Youtube Gaming scene?
Be sure that if you are going to start YouTube with the intent to actually do YouTube that you are willing to spend alot of time on it to make good quality stuff at least and never stop trying to better your videos and take any criticism you can and just use it to your advantage.
