If you aren’t accustomed to refreshing Twitter every three minutes and watching children’s television, you might have missed the fact that big time YouTube faves Sprinkle of Glitter (Louise) and LDShadowLady (Lizzie) went on Blue Peter last night!
The girls received the loveliest welcome when they came on the set from the Blue Peter crew before they cracked on with the questions! We learned that Louise started off her career by writing a blog which eventually grew into YouTube success, but she says that her favourite videos are anything featuring her daughter Darcy or her two cats, Rocket and Zula.
As for Lizzie, she loves vlogging because gaming is a lifetime passion for herself and she adores making stories and having a good time. She would also love to have a robot butler to help edit her videos and cheat in her video games!
The girls then took part in a 45 second vlogging challenge where they had to mention the following words: wheelie bin, blancmange, squirrel, egg and velociraptor! Obviously it was totally hilarious.
Last but not least, the lovely YouTube duo dished out some key advice when it comes to creating your own vlogging videos:
- Use natural lighting instead of a lightbulb
- Start off with your phone instead of rushing to by professional gear
- Have a theme and sometimes a script to keep a pace
- Don’t be scared to improv and let your natural humour come out!
The two were SO funny and natural on TV; we could not be more proud of them! But what did the girls think about their experience on the show?
