Fast Fingers Make Huge Errors

Seriously, this would be something that I would do. Why Kelly? Why?  So as you may know, I recently started a YouTube channel. I wanted a custom URL, of course. But mskellylouise and sixonesix were taken. Jerks. So I went to do mskellylouise616 and accidentally somehow hit submit too soon and ended up with mskellylouse. Do you see that? There is an I missing from Louise. Who doesn't know how to spell their own name? ME!

AND THE WORST PART IS THAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE IT.  Once you pick a URL for Youtube, that's it. No exceptions, it cannot be changed. You have to make a new channel to have a different name. Personally, I think we should get 24 hours to decide if we want to edit our URL. But I don't own Google so my thoughts on this situation don't matter. 





THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP

So now I'm faced with this dilemma of do I keep it and look like a dummy for all eternity? Or do I make a brand new channel?  I know I've just started so my following is very very small so making a new channel wouldn't be too awful, but it's still my following. And let's be honest, not everyone moves with you when you move anywhere on the internet. 


If this were you... what would you do?  I'm leaning towards making a whole new one. (*cries*)


Sincerely, 
Kelly Louse

I went ahead and made a new channel and I typed very carefully and managed to spell my name right this time. So here we go again...

  1. Do you think it's going to bother you for a really long time? What if (hopefully!) your YouTube channel gets lots of followers? I personally would change it now if you can. I'm actually in the same boat, but haven't been able to figure out how to make a custom URL for YouTube. I must be missing something verrrry simple haha. :)

  2. true, if i'm gonna change it i need to change it immediately.
    if you go into the youtube settings, next to your profile picture there is advanced settings and in there it should say create custom url. ....be careful!! haha

  3. I think since it's so new it wouldn't be too late... you can still advertise it and now that you've told people about it they can be on the lookout. You want to make sure you're happy with it and are excited to tell people about it. I'll still go to it no matter the spelling :)

  5. I would go with a new one! Try to reach out to your current following to bring them over to the new channel, but if they don't come around to your new channel, it'll be okay and you'll get new followers! p.s. I like what you did there at the end :) Also, I really hate how google only lets you do things ONCE... and then, welp, too bad you made a mistake... we don't really care that much. Lame.

  7. I say make a whole new one! Reach out to your current followers if there aren't too many and ask them to follow you at your new URL. Likewise, make a quick blurb of a video asking them to go to your new URL. Just make the video funny about pretty much what you said here and tell them your mistake. I'm sure they'll follow you!

    I would make a whole new channel! It's been such a short time and you're going to have this channel for a long time. I think you'll regret not changing it, and every time you see that misspelled url you're going to cringe and want to punch the computer.

  9. UGH! It sucks but make the new channel. That url will grate on your nerves forever until you snap and want to do it when your following gets larger. Suck it up and do it now. That is a bummer though.
