Hot For Words
So you want to be an internet star? Here's a little story for you. She (The Russian Blond) is one smart cookie. Marina burst in on the scene in mid 2007 launching her YouTube channel HotForWords, where she takes requests from YouTube viewers for words to discuss, and she releases 3 or 4 videos each week discussing the origins of these words, in a fun and playful manner! You can visit Marina who is a philologist (one who studies linguistics and etymology). Marina has had 43 million hits in the last 8 months - 1.5 million new views/week and entertains 70,000 subscribers daily. Here is her guest appearance on the O'Reilly Show. Cha-ching. Here is her very first video. You could do this! You could teach crafts, decorating, painting, photography, business......So, I ask: What are you waiting for?
