Marie Once Deleted Most Of Her Content

Marie joined YouTube on April 18, 2008 as a hobby. Her very first video was a minute and 45 seconds-long makeup tutorial.

For the first four years, the channel didn’t register much growth. Once it started to attract viewers, Marie amped up her video quality and eventually decided to delete most of the older videos. She explained why she did that in an interview with Pfeiffer Law.

I remember going through a phase thinking that everything needs to look good as far as my videos. I’d been doing it for so long, I was thinking more visually, and I was like those are old, they don’t get views, and I should delete them.

On 14th May of 2018, Marie shared a video where she announced that she was taking a break from YouTube. She shared how putting up the videos felt like a chore to her, and she wasn’t proud of her content anymore.
