There is many different ways to get to the place that you want to be at and there is no one way to get there. There will be a trail and error process and you might go viral or be a specific moment in time where you will get big right way.
I suggest that no matter what happens stay humble and really stay true to you and what it is that you want to be presenting and posting online. The internet is forever so make sure that you are posting stuff that you are ok with being out there forever.
