We know one thing is for certain: there’s a vlog out there for everyone! No matter your interests, there are thousands of content creators developing daily and weekly content to keep you entertained. If you’re on the hunt for a new YouTube channel to follow, here are our recommendations for the top vlog and content creators in 2021:
1. For Travel: Jason Billam
“I’d say I’ve always had a profound interest in learning more about the world. I suppose this passion has naturally manifested itself into the format of travel content I make today…I’ve been on trips to Eastern Europe, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South East Asia, North Africa and the Middle East…Here’s hoping there’s plenty more adventures to come.” (Jason Billam)
Whether he’s backpacking incredible mountains or trying out new cuisines, Billam is the perfect vlogger for all your “wanderlust” needs. You might even find the next place to book a vacation after watching his videos!
2. For Poker: Ethan Yau
“When I started making my Youtube videos… If a scrubby dub…like me can win a tournament or bracelet and run deep, anyone can… It’s so crazy that the dream is legitimately alive for anyone. Just run really well.” (Ethan Yau)
With a stamp of approval from the poker greats, Ethan Yau is an expert in logistics and strategy. Said Lee Jones of his performance, “One of Ethan’s most attractive features is that he doesn’t take himself too seriously…And occasionally when he feels he’s really misplayed a hand, his video will cut away to him punting a football. His fans (including me) love those.”
3. For Wellness: Rachel Aust
“I’m a qualified nutritionist, personal trainer, and wellness coach, but I believe wellness is more than just the foods you eat or the exercise you do. I think to be ‘truly well’ we need to redesign our mindset and our space to allow ourselves to grow.” (Rachel Aust)
Whether you need inspiration for your next healthy recipe or want to learn more about the benefits of a plant-based diet, Rachel Aust is the perfect vlogger to follow for all things wellness and lifestyle.
4. For Videography: Casey Neistat
“I find so much inspiration in how diversified YouTube is becoming… A few years back, there was what felt like only a couple kinds of creators. And, if you didn’t fit into that narrow description, it was difficult to succeed. Now, I see success all over the place…Overall, it’s seeing creators really lean into what they’re passionate about rather than trying to conform to what some might feel is necessary to succeed.” (Casey Neistat)
Neistat began his YouTube career early with cinematic vlogs, impressing viewers with his polished and artistic content. Over the years, he has become a staple of the vlogging community and continues to make impressive, high-quality videos.
5. For Science: vlogbrothers
“Having a good audience is way better than having a big audience… After 10 years, I’ve lost the fear and excitement that came from hoping a video would do well, or the sadness when it didn’t. Now, I make stuff for the people who choose to watch, and I hope that the kind of stuff I make will attract the kind of people I want to be in a community with.” (Hank Green)
Hank and John Green’s content comes at the perfect intersection of comedy and science. With their engaged community of “nerdfighters,” these brothers deliver interesting and unique content for those who want to learn something new.
6. For Beauty: Jackie Aina
“That’s definitely something that I always try to reiterate… Honestly, I just found something that I enjoy doing and I just didn’t stop doing it. Anything that you wanna make happen, you really can. You just have to have the right mindset in place.” (Jackie Aina)
Need a review on a popular skin care routine? Want to learn more about the latest eyeshadow palette? Jackie Aina is not only known for her amazing makeup tips, but is an incredible advocate for increasing visibility for women of color in the cosmetic space.
7. For Gaming: Tfue
“Gamer, esports athlete, social media influencer, there’s so many different labels that you could label yourself as, so I don’t know. I’m just me, dude.” (Tfue)
There’s no shortage of gamers on the internet, but if you’re a fan of Fortnite, consider watching Tfue. Previously a member of the FaZe clan, Turner Tenney has struck gold on his own and has amassed a large following of online fans.
8. For Family Life: The Bucket List Family
“We were going to take the typical next step in life and “grow up” and build a house and settle into careers..but how about not!…That’s why we started our family bucket list. We decided as a young family that now was the time to form healthy habits and create traditions that will hopefully shape us into better people the rest of our lives.” (Jessica Gee)
After selling his company to Snapchat, Garrett and Jessica Gee took their family on the adventure of a lifetime, traveling the globe and sharing their adventures with an engaged online community. Combining family dynamics and travel, they’re a vlog you won’t want to miss.
9. For Food: Joshua Weissman
“I knew I had a unique point of view and a big reason for my passion is that oftentimes I want people to have as much fun as I do thinking about, tasting, or learning about food as I do. It comes from an urge to share and also teach.” (Joshua Weissman)
After leaving his position as a head chef, Joshua Weissman built his own YouTube empire on delicious recipes and wealth of cooking knowledge. Coupling a family history of cooking with professional training, Joshua will give you all the right recipes to spice up your family dinners.
10. For Tech: UrAvgConsumer
“I’ve always been into technology… Just seeing how phones evolved piqued my interest in how other technologies would evolve in other fields as well…I love what I do, and you really can’t underestimate the power of seeing someone that looks like you and having them make you feel like you can do the same thing.” (Judner Aura)
