YouTube has become a platform that can turn anyone with a webcam and a good angle into a celebrity. A lot of the biggest channels on YouTube were created by people with no prior following. Of course we aren’t talking about College Humor or Selena Gomez. But rather, people like Lindsey Stirling and PewDiePie who established their entire following from YouTube channels. For them, the channels started out as a hobby and turned into a goldmine.
