Who is Zoella?
The unprecedented growth of the internet over the recent years has led to a spurt in the number of young bloggers, YouTubers, and Vloggers. Zoella is one such celebrity who has raged a storm in the United Kingdom with her fashion blogs and also her achievements in a variety of other fields. Her fashion blog has been publicly well received and has received millions of views. She has become a youth icon by attracting masses of female fans with her quirky fashion tips and advice. It was while working as an apprentice at an interior design company that she created her blog, ‘Zoella’ which would soon become her claim to fame. A popular hit from the very beginning, the blog—which was launched in 2009—had garnered more than 500 million total visits by 2015. Soon after the launch of her blog, she started a YouTube channel named ‘zoella280390.’ In addition, the young lady has also launched a range of beauty products. And did we mention that she is also a best-selling author?
The Meteoric Rise To Stardom
She began her career in an interior design company and subsequently created her blog which was titled ‘Zoella’ which became really popular in the UK. Launched in 2009, the blog had over 540 million visits as of September 2015. This blog, which focused on fashion, beauty and lifestyle, expanded into a YouTube channel ‘zoella280390’ within months of the blog’s launch in 2009. The channel was a tremendous success which prompted Zoella to launch another channel known as ‘MoreZoella’, which showed what she did during the course of the day. This channel too proved to be an instantaneous hit and greatly increased Zoella’s fan following, particularly among the young population. In addition, she also began appearing with other YouTube stars as part of the show ‘Daily Mix’, which enabled her to rub shoulders with some of YouTube’s top celebrities. This was in fact the beginning of her collaboration with several other YouTube stars. By the end of 2015, her main YouTube channel had over 9.9 million subscribers and over 663 million video views; her second channel had over 3.4 million subscribers and over 290 million video views. She ventured into newer territories in 2014 when she signed a contract with Penguin books. Her first book was ‘Girl Online’, which became an immediate bestseller among the young audience. The novel featured an online blogger, widely believed to be Zoella herself, but she never explicitly made an admission that the book was based on her. The book broke the record for the highest ever first-week sales for a debut author since records began in 1998, selling a total of 78,109 copies. Following the success of this book, Zoella released a sequel called ‘Girl Online: On Tour’, which was released in 2015; a third book is in the pipeline. The talented girl has won a number of awards so far: Cosmopolitan Blog Award-Best Established Beauty Blog (2011), Cosmopolitan Blog Award-Best Beauty Vlogger (2012), and Teen Choice Award-Choice Webstar: Fashion/Beauty (2014 and 2015).
