But which vloggers to follow? Well, I have compiled a list of my top 10 favorite vloggers. I realize most of them are quite big and you already know them, but I still like them and added them to the list anyway. If you did not know them, well congratulations, you now have something to do.

While that may not sound like a lot compared to the other vloggers to be featured on this list, there are a few reasons why you should want to follow them. Not only have they managed to tap into a niche audience, which means more engagement even if they have a smaller subscriber base, they’ve also done a wonderful job of growing a real brand–not just a YouTube channel (and I love tech, so these are a favorite of mine as well).
