Ten Years on YouTube | Reacting to my First Video + Q&A


It's official. I've been on YouTube for TEN YEARS. In today's video, I react to my very first video from ten years ago. I also answer all of your YouTube questions and let you know what it's like to be a YouTuber in 2021. 

I started my YouTube channel in 2011, with the intention of building an audience and marketing my books. At that time, I was in the process of self-publishing Lessons from Madame Chic (after experiencing countless literary agent rejections) and I knew that if I wanted my book to be successful, I'd have to come up with a marketing strategy. I enjoyed watching YouTube back then and figured I would start my channel and market my books on YouTube and my blog. 

It proved to be a winning strategy as Lessons from Madame Chic caught the eye of CNN and The New York Times. In the spring of 2021, I signed with an excellent literary agency, Trident Media Group, and we sold Lessons from Madame Chic to Simon & Schuster. The next ten years saw me publish four more books, and along with raising a family, have been the busiest years of my life. And by some miracle, I am still on YouTube! Today I answer all of your questions about YouTube life. I hope you enjoy today's video

Comment of the Week
Justyna F. writes, "I always look forward to your videos. It doesn't matter what they're about (tho 9 times out of 10 it's a helpful video) but your overall attitude is so calming! Your content is uplifting and I find myself more and more almost frantically seeking out calm havens in this turbulent world. Your channel is one I can count on time and time again to be a safe, classy, feminine haven for me to retreat to. I send you all my love and thanks! ❤️"

Hi Jennifer-- I follow a few select YouTubers and bloggers, but you are hands down my favorite! I really appreciate what you do--your passion, creativity, class...It is so refreshing to have someone uphold the values that are, sadly, becoming harder to find in society today. Your encouragement really makes a difference to your followers.
I'm looking forward to your new book, as well as your continued posts!
Take care--
