Everyday i live unhappy because a passion a dream that i can't live out... See im only 13 years old I got get told "Don't talk in your videos because that would be cringe" So i never did.. I just made montages and videos i didden't enjoy making. Now i want to change but i don't know how i can't talk in my videos because there is always people in my house screaming and talking and i don't have a good mic. What do i do i've been waiting and waiting to get older so i wont be "Cringe" in my videos but i cant wait no more I want it now, I need to do this its the only passion i've ever had, since i was 8 and started watching youtube i've always wanted this but what do i do? How do i start with people constantly talking in my house..

If you want to make quality content, but you don’t have a good mic and your house is noisy...then your best bet is to not put commentary on your videos at this time. I understand it’s what you want to do, but you also don’t want to put bad quality out starting out.
I’m not entirely informed about your situation, but seeing as your only 13, you’ve got plenty of time to prepare.

First, don't let anyone tel you that your voice or voiceovers would make people cringe. Everyone has their own voice, and it's that uniqueness that makes some YouTubers more popular than others. There's a place for everyone's voice in this huge platform of YouTube.

Second, you need a microphone to help amplify your voice and cut out the background. You don't have to spend a lot of money to do that, either. If you're using a phone to film, just us the headphones that came with your iPhone or Android. They have built in microphones that help isolate your voice for phone calls while also cutting out some of the background noise. Try a test video using your phone headphones. If you're using a separate camera to film, most of them have a place to plug in an external microphone. You can get cheap lapel mics you can attach to your shirt collar that will pick up your voice and cut down on background sounds. These can be purchased online (and in some stores like Best Buy or WalMart) for as low as $10-$15.

Don't let anyone stop you from following your dream of creating content. If you want to do it badly enough, ignore the haters and just create! Best of luck!

I want that more then anything! But i don't want my family to find out about my channel... My mom would ask why im talking english (Couse i live in Norway) and think im talking to one person and she wouldn't like it and my brother would just laugh and talk in the videos to destroy them :/

You need a spine of steel to make it in just about anything. Don't care what others say and do what you want.
