So awhile back I entered J-14 magazines "Be A YouTube Star!" contest. I didn't think much of it. I had entered contests before, looking for ways to get myself out there, but failed at winning. And this one wasn't too hard anyway. Just post a video of yourself doing something you think you were talented at. I had been doing that for over a year at this point. So I entered and then kind of forgot about it.
A month later, I checked my email and got a HUGE surprise. A message from a J-14 editor saying I had won! I was excited, and amazed, and surprised. And it happened at a moment when I wouldn't have expected. I was with my friend and my other friend's mom in the car, driving home after waking up early to get Road Dogs tickets. I was glad I got to experience that moment with them :)
So they uploaded my video as soon as they could to YouTube. But that didn't turn out to be such a big deal. It didn't get many views and I didn't even see it in my subscription box :/ But then, 3 weeks later, they put the video on their website, just as promised. I basically flipped out when I saw it. It was so cool seeing my face on the same page as the Jonas Brothers, and Demi Lovato, and all these other people I admire so much. It was so surreal. And the comments were so nice (mostly, haha. But I've dealt with haters before.)
In the end, it turned out to be great. I really feel like I'm going somewhere with my music career, even if just in small steps. Who knows, maybe one day I'll be IN J-14 magazine, and not just on the site :D
