These days, times are a changin’! A couple of days ago, a fan of GRRRLTRAVELER blog and YouTube channel commented that my Roku TV app was now out for viewers to subscribe.
This was before I was even contacted of that news! A couple of days later, I was notified that GRRRLTRAVELER had a new app out. There are two signs I like to gauge my YouTube/blog popularity and growth by…. 1) Thumbs Downs/DisLikes on YouTube (seriously, many popular YOuTubers have told me this) and 2) when my audience catches news about me before I get it.
GRRRLTRAVELER’s YouTube channel features destination, food tours, Top 5 Travel Tips, gear reviews, Solo Travel & ‘Teach Abroad’ tips and ‘Top Things to Do’ itineraries.
Additionally, my videos are also now on TV, through several streaming Roku channels, such as Trip Smart.tv (Travel USA, Asia, Europe), Smart Woman, SmartMan.tv , iFoodTV, Family Vacations by Fawesome.tv and the list grows. In March 2015, GRRRLTRAVELER will launch its own app on Roku.
In 2014, Roku hit over 10million box sales . Athough it is second to Apple TV sales, Roku is actually viewed more than Apple TV. It is currently big in the US and Canada, but is expanding.
