Please note: I promise to stop banging on about this soon.
I have a new love in my life. It’s not something I thought I would ever be comfortable with or confident enough to do myself – not in a million years, somehow though I have found myself vlogging and am totally smitten with video.
For a while now I have been seriously addicted to watching videos. People are basically awesome and couple this with my innate nosiness and the fact I can easily access YouTube on my computer, TV or phone – it really is the most perfect way to while away the time.
‘Traditional’ TV is now (at best) in second place in our house these days. We’ve cancelled a lot of the satellite channels we were paying for and are using the savings to increase our broadband limit – that’s how much of an addiction it’s become!
So far I have just done vlog-type videos – straight to camera and virtually no editing. This has been a way of dipping my toe in the water and seeing if I like it. I love it!
It’s like… if all the things I’m passionate about and that interest me were put into a big Venn-diagram, video would be the bit in the middle that is encompasses everything. I think that’s why it feels so exciting!
I talked earlier in the month about my word for the year; STRIVE. This is something I want to strive for.
Here’s a flavour of what I am (more often than not) glued to on YouTube – any recommendations gratefully received!
And because I couldn’t not include a photo…
