How did you get your username?
My friend Hieuy (xxLangDuxx) actually told me to start making videos and well… I tried it out and thought it was pretty fun! I didn’t really know what I was doing but I believe I just started my channel as a “makeup channel.” I did makeup tutorials and I remember one of my first video being the “What’s in my purse?” video. (Though I think that’s down/privated now for the quality is just bad lol) But yeah that’s how it started, then I got into fashion more and more. As for my username, not really sure. I’ve just always had “bebedoll” as a username for things so I just used that, but since it was taken I just switched the letters to numbers – b3bed0llxoxo. There’s really no “personal” meaning to it or whatever. I wish there was though haha.
» When did you start your YouTube Channel and how long did it take to become partner?
I started my channel on September 2009 and it took about a month to get partner. I believe I signed up after two weeks of having my channel :) To find out more about being a YouTube Partner, click here.
» How did you get so many subscribers? What did you do?
I get asked this a lot, and I have to say… I got lucky I think. I never went around on people’s channels posting “Subscribe to my channel” “Check out my channel” etc. I just posted videos and sometimes I would do a video response on people’s videos that I liked :) Eventually, I somehow met Mary & Asher, I became good friends with them, got into all that social networking wayyy more and actually started interacting with other YouTube gurus. Eventually you get shout outs here and there, you do collabs, swaps and all that :) Let me tell you though, it doesn’t happen over night!
