It’s here!! I finally relaunched my YouTube channel after more than 2 years. This has definitely been a passion project for me since I’m so uncomfortable with video and it feels like I’m learning an entirely new skill – oh man, it’s so hard. Like I don’t even do selfies on Instagram stories – and now I’m recording videos. How did this happen!? Not to mention, watching yourself on video is pretty painful. I can’t be the only person who doesn’t like to hear my voice played back. But I asked for feedback a few months ago in my reader survey and overwhelmingly you guys said more beauty & video content (you also said that you hate wishlists, haha!) So here I go.
I’ve recorded and re-recorded videos for the last four months practicing and trying to get my lighting, content, editing, and equipment up to par with the rest of my brand. I wanted to create content that you guys would enjoy and that would add value to your lives. I hate when people just ramble on and on, so I tried to fast forward through the boring parts. I also always laugh when people put the product close to the camera with their hand behind it to show you what it is – listing the product below the video seems to be a better solution. But YouTube land is new for me so I’m learning on the job.
What can you expect from this? A new video pretty much every week. (No promises tho!) My YouTube channel will be an extension of my blog and I’ll mainly be focusing on hair & beauty, but I’ve already gotten some requests for vlog style content on relationships, books I’m reading, girlboss tips, etc. As always, I create content for you guys and I would love to get your suggestions for video content and especially as I’m getting started, I want your feedback on how to make better videos! What do you want to see more of? What did I do wrong?! Give me all your critiques!
