I’m just going to get straight to the point in this post.. How long have I told you guys “I’m going be starting my YouTube channel soon”? Too long. In fact, I created my channel last February, and I’ve been saying that I would start making videos for about a year now. I actually created my YouTube channel before I started my blog, so, for (almost) the last year (it’ll be my 1 year blog anniversary next month), I put off making YouTube videos to really work on building and creating content for my blog. Now that I’ve been blogging for almost one year, I feel like it’s the perfect time to create even more content on another platform, which I’ve been thinking about for months – YouTube.
Just like anything I set out to do in life, I always want to try and make it the best that it can be, right from the start, and YouTube was no different. I bought a tripod for my camera, a couple of soft box lights, oh, and I completely redecorated my bedroom, in order to get everything ready before I started making any videos. (I think it’s important just to clarify that none of these things are a necessity of starting a YouTube channel, it’s just something I wanted to do beforehand.) Now that my bedroom is completed, I have no excuse to put off making videos any longer. So, a few days ago, I sat down and filmed my first YouTube video. I planned this video in advance, and I knew that I wanted to start with the ’50 Facts About Me’ tag. As I run a fashion blog, you get to see my different outfits, but you don’t really get to find out a lot about me, so I thought this video would be a great starting point, and for you guys to get to know me a little more.
My first video is now LIVE, and I’d love it if you could check it out, and leave some comments about what you think. I was really impressed with myself, as I filmed this video on Wednesday, and had it edited and uploaded by Thursday evening – not bad for my first video, right?! I’d also love to know what videos you would like to see from me – my next video is going to be my February favourites (which I will continue to do each month). Please let me know any ideas you may have by leaving a comment below/on my video, or by contacting me on my social media – Twitter / Instagram
I just want to thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your continuous support – not only since starting this blog,
but since my first video went live a few days ago. I’ve already received some lovely comments and feedback about my video, as well as comments about my blog, and I cannot explain how much this means to me. Now that I’ve uploaded my first video, I’m so excited to continue making videos, as well as more blog posts! The support you’ve all been giving me so far has given me so much motivation to keep creating content. I’m already planning future videos and blog post ideas, and I really hope you all continue to enjoy my content!
