In Monday’s April TBR post, I mentioned that I’ll possibly be starting a YouTube channel. It’s currently in the works, and I’m still practicing editing things and just getting the hang of talking to a camera before I actually upload anything.
In the meantime I want to talk through this decision with you all through a series of questions I’ve compiled myself. This way you can all understand what I’m thinking going into this, and can maybe help me on my journey.
Why do I want to start a YouTube Channel??
I’ve thought about this for a while. Watching BookTube and reading blogs, I’ve noticed that it is so much harder to be recognised when you’re running a blog. People want to watch and listen to others as a means of distraction, multitasking, or just pure entertainment. There are very few people nowadays who read blogs unless it’s purely for research purposes. I really want to be recognised by more people in the community as I haven’t been able to do that in all my 3 years of blogging.
Who Inspired me to want to start a YouTube channel?
I was inspired by Ashley from ADashOfAsh on YouTube, who is a lovely human! I watched her first video when it was uploaded and immediately was obsessed with her bubbly personality, love for books, and dedication to making videos (even though it was only her first one). That’s how I hope to start out my channel, so that’s why I’m practising before I go live.
What’s holding me back?
Confidence. I’ve been making small vlog style writing diaries to become more confident in front of the camera, as well as some trial videos and projects to prepare myself. If I want to put myself out to the world I don’t want to make a fool of myself (or my friends will have a fun time roasting me).
Will I continue blogging if I start YouTube?
Of course I will! I’d go insane if I didn’t continue blogging as there are just some things that are better written than spoken; and sometimes there are things that are better spoken than written.
Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!
Thank You so much for reading! I hope to see you all back here on Monday 🙂
