These are few great advantages of a YouTuber maintaining a blog. I have tried this and I get important traffic to my Channel from my blog and from my blog to my channel.
One very important fact which every budding YouTuber should keep in mind is that do what ever you enjoy doing. You should be passionate about the work you do everyday or you will not be able to do for a long time. Select a topic that you are interested, you have some knowledge about it and you are interested in exploring and learning more about it. Starting a YouTube channel with a topic of your interest is very important.
