Hello people of the internet, today is the first blog entry of my ‘YouTube Wednesdays’ series. Today’s blog talks about Twitter/YouTube star Meaghan Dowling, or as most of you may know her as, the girl behind the popular twitter account Teen Things, and the YouTube show IMO
In today’s world, the way we live day to day is constantly changing. The internet has replaced traditional radio and television, email, Facebook, and Skype have changed person to person communication, even the way celebrities emerge has changed. The internet has become a breeding ground for finding talented, previously unknown people and turning them into superstars (such as Justin Bieber, Austin Mahone, Boyce Avenue, Megan and Liz, etc).
One such case is that of 19 year old Meaghan Dowling from Smithtown, NY. While still in high school, Meaghan began an account called ‘Teen Things’ where she began posting quotes and thoughts relevant to the everyday life of teens. Since Teen Things’ creation in 2010, Meaghan’s Teen Things account has earned 429,579 followers. In June of 2012, Meaghan and various other TV and YouTube stars premiered a teen talk show called IMO (which stands for In My Opinion) on the YouTube channel Awesomeness TV. Awesomeness TV posts new episode of IMO Monday-Friday, and the show discusses various topics near and dear to the hearts of teens such as makeup, relationships, and of course One Direction (yes I will now allow you a moment to scream…ok the moment is over).
Besides working on IMO and Teen Things, Meaghan also maintains a personal YouTube account in which she posts fashion hauls, beauty, tag, and advice videos. Meaghan currently has 25,746 subscribers. Her star quality shines through these videos due to her wit, charm, and overall down to earth nature that make her relatable to everyday girls (plus she often has assistance from her best friend Travis Beck, who is equally as hilarious, check him out at http://twitter.com/TravisBeck). These are just some of the many reasons why Meaghan Dowling is a YouTube star on the rise, and an individual I suggest everyone subscribe to.
