  1. I like that you focused this blog on a specific content trend, Guppy! I too enjoy watching day-in-the-life vlogs across social media platforms and find them to be entertaining and relatable. Influencers or content creators who build their following from lifestyle videos have the benefit of cultivating their niche/focus specifically around them and their routines. This allows them to build a closer relationship with their followers who are granted an inside look into their life, which in turn fosters trust and a parasocial relationship between creators and their audience.

  2. Guppy, I loved your take on “A Day In My Life” vlogs! I watch these all the time that it’s become normalized to me. I never even think about how much social media has changed in the last few years due to the influence of TikTok. I think you had a really awesome blog post! The fact that influencers can become wealthy just by vlogging their days is crazy. Great job!

  3. I loved your emphasis on leaning into trends, but also making sure that there is a community-centered feel when it comes to Day in the Life videos. Personally, they are one of my favorite types of videos to watch, as one is never similar to the other. Everyone comes from different lived experiences and backgrounds. It’s fascinating to watch how people interact and exist in our world (or maybe that’s just the Sociology minor in me). Great work!

  4. I really like this topic as I see it so prominently on various platforms. I personally enjoy watching these type of videos too because they feel so much more casual and easy to relate to.

  5. Hi Guppy,

    I loved your take on “Day in the Life” content. I especially enjoy your take on each one has to have some type of uniqueness to it. For those creators who create this type of content they need to show how their lifestyle is unique and different. I enjoyed your take on the fresh perspective.

  6. I enjoyed your article. I have noticed an uptick in this trend as well. I first noticed it on YouTube some time ago, and now it has transitioned to TikTok. The videos can be pretty interesting, sharing new information or views. By that same token, they can get boring if the creator keeps doing the same thing. I think there is a need for new, exciting takes and ideas.

  7. Guppy, I loved this blog topic because I am someone who enjoys watching random day in my life videos. They not only inspire me but can give someone an inside look on what life might look like a in new location one might think about moving to. Depending on the creator, these vlogs can become repetitive with very little changes which shrinks the new audience that could possibly be reached.

  8. Hi Guppy, your blog topic was interesting because I enjoy watching random day-in-my-life videos. It’s intriguing to know what a person with an entirely different life than you have what they are doing, and it sometimes can inspire me to go to the locations they are at because of how interesting their content is.

  9. Guppy, you make a lot of great points here! The rise of “day in my life” content makes me instantly think of two things: the “de-influencing” trend and how the content supports and propagates unattainable ideals. Too often, “day in my life” content is made by upper-class young people with a surplus of products, often for makeup and skincare, in nice homes, perfectly groomed and blatantly displaying wealth. Associated with the often unreasonable amount of items and products featured in this content is a sense of overconsumption and unsustainability. I think the de-influencing trend helps users remember that these “in my life” content creators are exaggerated and not easily attainable, but I ultimately believe they are harmful and both the casual user and a brand looking to collaborate with a creator should watch for “day in my life” content that appears unfair or polarizing to audiences.
