I’ve always wanted to, plus this blog could be way more interesting when I add the embellishments a tone of voice can provide.

Jenna Marbles is a real favorite of mine. She’s funny although often pointless- that’s the idea though, isn’t it?- but what really stands out are the subtle things she does that give her videos that added quality of professionalism. Ever notice the quiet, omnipresent music she has playing in the background of her ‘funny’ videos? Or the smooth transitions between shots? Her editing is some of the best I’ve seen on youtube with the style she selects actually adding to the humour.

Ultimately, though, youtube channels are just the even more obnoxious sister of the blog, with the added bonus of more potential to show off a greater range of creative skills in producing your white noise.
