So today’s post is a little out of the ordinary for me. If you have been following me for a while you will know that I have been pondering the realms of YouTube for a while, however I just haven’t quite had the balls to make the leap and actually have a go myself. This is for a number of reasons.
Firstly, despite my outward appearance I am actually not an overly confident person and I worry a lot about what other people think of me. It took a lot for me to start this blog, and other than my boyfriend, I haven’t publicly shared it amongst my friends and family. Truth be told I just don’t think they will get it, or me.
Secondly, I am a complete perfectionist. My blog may seem pretty basic, and it is and that’s my style. But I spend so many hours tinkering with the layout, changing tiny details and making it perfect for me. I knew that if I were to start a YouTube channel that I would obsess in the same way over that too, and I wanted to be able to dedicate real time to it.
I also had no idea how to even begin editing a video! I can be pretty techy when I set my mind to it, and I am a very much self-taught person. I tend to be able to teach myself how to do anything I set my mind to, within reason. I wanted to be able to edit to a decent enough standard before I uploaded any content.
Despite all my reasoning I have uploaded my first YouTube video. I think including teaching myself the editing basics, in total it took me around 4 hours to complete. I’m not entirely happy with it but I think for my first one it’s not that bad.. hey I can only get better right? It’s more of a happy musical/montage style vlog, but I’m going to try and get over my fear of talking to the camera and upload more chatty videos soon.
Anyway, If you’d like to check it out you can find the link below. Please do comment with your thoughts as that would mean a lot, and if you’re feeling particularly lovely on this beautiful Saturday you could subscribe too!
Until next time x
