In the past couple of years, influencer presence has taken off. It seemed just like yesterday I huddled around a clunky computer monitor with my childhood friend Cassie. We would spend hours watching YouTubers introduce new products and express how they felt about them. At the time, these individuals were posting about their lives, but little did they know that the influencer market was soon to come.
I am not the most prominent influencer watcher, but I have discovered some I do like. The idea of influencers has changed and evolved with technology. Now everyone and anyone can be one on any platform. With that said, I would like to introduce my go to online figures and hopefully bring inspiration to your life.
I stumbled across this gem on Youtube one day while struggling with anxiety related to my last romantic relationship and COVID-19. Blakey has 605K subscribers on Youtube and uses her platform to educate her followers about life and ways to overcome difficult circumstances. She joined Youtube on Dec. 18, 2010. For eleven years, this Sweden goddess has shared so much about her personal life to counsel and calm those in similar situations. She has a peaceful presence and has helped me tremendously. Blakey has encouraged me to start journaling and focus on my mental and spiritual health. If you like to learn about productive daily habits, overthinking, or how to stop comparing yourself to others, give her channel a try! You won’t regret it, promise.
Stephanie Lyn Coaching
Reaching 381K subscribers, Lyn is a life and relationship coach icon. Joining Youtube on May 26, 2017, she brings awareness of destructive and unhealthy behaviors, gives out powerful advice, and talks about improving relationships in her videos. Here are a few examples, The People who will ALWAYS Attract a Narcissist! or Mistakes People Make When Getting Over Someone. I was grateful to have found her video after my first heartbreak and haven’t stopped watching her ever since. Her ultimate goal is to help viewers identify ways to avoid unnecessary emotional weight in their lives. If you are in the middle of a breakup or emotionally abusive relationship, I would highly recommend subscribing to her channel.
Dr. Julia Smith
This talented Psychologist has a following of 349K on Instagram and posts at least once a day with stories. Smith is a Mental Health specialist who has reached all platforms. I originally discovered her on Instagram, but she also has posts on Tik Tok and Youtube. Her content is short and to the point, leaving viewers informed and not bored by the length. While I am on my phone scrolling through IG, Smith pops up with the perfect piece of advice for me today. She is so friendly and gives off welcoming vibes. If you need motivational reminders and inspiring ideas, Dr. Smith could be everything you didn’t know you needed.
I hope you found at least one of these influencers interesting, and went ahead and subscribed! Comment below to share your favorite influencers!
