Wendy Huang has unexpectedly become a YouTube sensation. What started out as a blog post about health and beauty products would turn into a highly successful and popular YouTube Channel that has become Wendy’s Huang’s full time occupation and source of livelihood. Wengie’s blog posts received so much attention and viewers, that it caught the attention of health and beauty companies who wanted Wendy to review and mention their products in her blog.
Seeing the popularity of her blog, and the interest it generated from health and beauty companies Wendy launched her own Youtube Channel which she nicknamed Wengie. Like the blog preceding it, her YouTube Channel proved to be a hit. It recently capped 1 million subscribers and has close to 30 million views. In honor of this extraordinary milestone, Wendy Huang agreed to sit down and do an interview with TubeFilter, which covers YouTube sensations from all over the world. Below is a summary of the key points in the interview.
When asked how she felt about reaching over a million subscribers, which is a major landmark, Wengie seemed indifferent. She replied “Don’t get me wrong it feels great, but it is like a birthday. “You feel excited in anticipation, but when it happens it is just like any other day.” Wengie also described how she left a comfortable six figure salary to pursue managing her Wengie YouTube channel full time. It was a big risk, says Wendy, but she says the satisfaction she derives from it is well worth the risk she took to become independent.
Wengie discussed how she tries to keep the content of her channel positive. She provides advice to her younger viewers on things such as bullying and relationships. The YouTube star also tries to promote a healthy lifestyle by sharing healthy diet tips and exercise tips.
Of course the hallmark of Wengie is her immense number of videos on a large variety of beauty and skincare products from all over the world. When asked if she felt unique due to her background and having grown up in Australia, Wengie replied she doesn’t feel any more special that anyone else.
