He has a girlfriend. He has a brother. His family was originally not so supportive about his channel ambitions until he managed to partner with Machinima and his first sponsorship.
When he was around seven-years-old, he had a neighbor who was also named, ‘Craig.’ ‘Mini’ was therefore tacked on before his name as a differentiator. Later on, a group of his gaming friends changed them handles to their name with ‘ladd’ added to the end. And so, ‘Mini Ladd’ was born. This was changed to MiniLaddd, when one of his gaming accounts was banned and he was forced to create a new account for himself.
One of his friends introduced him to YouTube gameplay and trolling videos and he thought that they were quite fun. He started creating and uploading his own content onto YouTube in 2008 when he got bored one summer and he was looking for something to do. He started his current channel in May 2011. He primarily produces content on controllers. In 2014, he dropped out of university to pursue streaming as a fulltime career.
Try to get a group of people who have similar subscribers to you, who do the same kind of videos and work with each other… Be in each other’s videos, like each other’s videos, because doing YouTube videos solo is incredibly difficult… Another one, if you enjoy watching your videos, then the likelihood is that other people will like watching videos. [If you don’t like a video, but think] ‘it’s alright, someone else will like it, that’s not the way to do it.
