If you’re a writer and the word “AuthorTube” means nothing to you, you are missing out. For the uninitiated, AuthorTube is a community of writers on YouTube who make all kinds of writing content from vlogs, to publishing advice, to live streams. It is a community of passionate writers, small yet invaluable in terms of how much you can learn. Everything I’ve learned about writing has come from actually doing the thing, and watching AuthorTube content.
Taking the leap from lurker to content-creator is a big one. Even if you’re not thinking of making an AuthorTube channel, there may come a day when you want to make one. My channel has facilitated community interaction I never would’ve gotten without it. I feel less alone and more motivated to work on my projects. So, if the need comes to you to make an AuthorTube channel, here are some things you should consider.
