"Youtube is a hobby for me"

"I see YouTube as a free space. I love making videos, talking, hanging out and cheering people up. I’ll carry on doing this for as long as I feel it’s a good hobby for me. It’s cool that some people want to do more and can do more, but for me it just has to be fun. I don’t want it to start getting stressful. I could walk away from it just as easily as I got into it. That’s how I feel about it anyway."

Q: Who are you?

Anni: We’re Anni and Lisa. We come from a small town called Høgild, which doesn’t really have very much going on. I have a YouTube channel, and Lisa’s my rock. We often discuss the videos, because Lisa’s good at saying what she thinks. She’s the critical viewer, who takes a look at everything before it’s published.
Lisa: I often get asked if maybe I should have a channel of my own, but it’s Anni’s thing, and I don’t fancy being part of that world. But I’m happy to be on the sideline.

Q: How do you inspire each other?

Lisa: Anni inspires me because she’s my big sister and I’ve always looked up to her. The way she starts things, follows through and achieves her goals with the videos – that’s so cool.
Anni: I find Lisa’s way of being herself inspiring. She just is who she is, and is good at saying “No”. She does what she wants. So I look up to her, even though she’s my little sister.

Q: What does it mean to have each other on social media?

Lisa: It’s brilliant to have someone. You never feel you’re on your own. Obviously, it’s a whole different world when lots of people know who you are. It’s really crazy when you consider how you get from being just someone sitting in your own room to everybody knowing you.
Anni: There’s a downside to everything, and sometimes being recognised isn’t that great. I don’t imagine it’s all that great to have people saying, “Hey, you’re Anni’s little sister” and getting labelled like that. But it’s great that we can talk about it.

Q: What’s social fame like for you?

Anni: I think it’s very special. I don’t really know how I feel about it. I’m hugely grateful to my followers. But the other side of the coin is when you come across people who are negative. So you just have to focus on all the people who enjoy what you’re doing.
Lisa: Anni probably experiences more of that side of things. The craziest it gets for me is when people stop and stare, and point. As I’ve got more used to it, I just find it friendly and sweet.

Q: What would you like to use your channel for?

Anni: I see YouTube as a free space. I love making videos, talking, hanging out and cheering people up. I’ll carry on doing this for as long as I feel it’s a good hobby for me. It’s cool that some people want to do more and can do more, but for me it just has to be fun. I don’t want it to start getting stressful. I could walk away from it just as easily as I got into it. That’s how I feel about it anyway.
Lisa: I feel the same way. It’s pretty cool that Anni doesn’t get carried away with her success. That she’s able to take a breath and think about what she really wants.

Do you have the same style, or not?

Anni: We like the same things, but we have different things in our wardrobes.
Lisa: We both love wide trousers and big tops. We don’t mind raiding each other’s wardrobes. We don’t spend a lot of time together on a daily basis. While Anni has been away at continuation school, she’s only been home for weekends, and then it’s, like, “Oh, hi. Is that a new top you’ve got…?”
Anni: Yes, and then I’ve said, “Hey, that’s my top you’re wearing – have you been rummaging in my wardrobe?”

Q: What would happen in your lives if the Internet disappeared?

Anni: My first reaction is that it would be awful! But then again, the world managed to function without it before. People would probably find different ways of being together. When we were on a school trip to China, I couldn’t use social media; all I could do was take photos on my phone. In the end, it was actually quite nice not having to update Snapchat and Instagram and just being able to relax.
Lisa: Maybe people would enjoy each other’s company more?
