It Finally Happened: My “First” Youtube Video!

GUYS!! I did it! I’ve finally sat down and filmed a video for you. As I’ve mentioned previously, I made a handful of videos about three years ago when I was in college. They were very fun at the time but not really my type of content that I’d be watching now. So I’ve privated all those videos and I’m starting fresh! I’d love for video content to become a regular aspect of this blog, and it was actually extremely fun creating this video at such a different part of my life. So without further ado, here is my video all about why I started this blog and all the pros and cons to the blogging world!

I mentioned this in my previous blog post and a bit in the video, but I’m really focusing on making content that I would want to watch myself and creating things I genuinely love. Making this video took a few days between filming, editing, and my full time job. However, I think it’s one of my favorite things I’ve made simply because it wasn’t rushed whatsoever and I really took time with the details. Of course, nothing is perfect and I want to keep improving. For example, part of the video is a bit blurry because I’m still learning how to use my camera when it comes to recording.

Blogging has become such a big part of my life so I hope this video inspires you to create your own or get more involved in this lovely community! I also mention a couple reasons why being a blogger can be difficult. Even through that though, I wouldn’t want to give it up. Let me know what your thoughts are down in the comments! Also, please keep in mind that I’m not super great in front of a camera yet so don’t judge me too hard 😉 Talk to you all very soon! xx

    I loved the video! I also subscribed to your channel!
    Filming the first video is the hardest but it’s gets easier as you go- almost like second nature!

    Good job on your first video. I hope to start adding videos to my blog soon too. I’m defiantly a bit camera shy but I’m getting better. I can’t wait to see what else you come out with.
