I’ve been watching YouTube for years and I’ve considered becoming a YouTuber many times. Creating videos seemed like a fun way to pass the time and connecting with more people from around the world made it seem so much more appealing. So, after much deliberation I decided to film my first BookTube video and see if I could manage the whole ‘talking to a camera’ thing. Unfortunately, my first video was a complete fail. I stuttered throughout, lost track of what I was supposed to be talking about and cringed when I watched it back. Unsurprisingly, I decided not to waste my time creating another video, at least for a little while anyway.
A few months later I decided to attempt filming another BookTube video. Having filmed the first one the summer before I started uni, and the second one when I’d nearly finished my first year, I thought I would notice some kind of improvement. You may be thinking, why would that make a difference? The truth is, university made me step out of my comfort zone and generally made me a more confident person. So, as I pressed record on my iPhone 6 (no fancy camera in sight), I genuinely thought that I would create a video I’d be happy with. Let’s just say that I wasn’t entirely correct. Nevertheless, I thought it would be a refreshing change to post this, and I hope you enjoy the video 🙂
(Disclaimer – I originally couldn’t add the video to this post because I don’t have the premium blogging package. So, in order to share it I’ve ironically had to upload it to YouTube haha.)
Why share it now?
Recently my blog has been getting a fair amount of new followers and since the video is a ‘5 facts about me’, I thought it would be appropriate to share it with all of you. Also, I mention my blog so it’s totally relevant, right? :p
Did you enjoy the video? Do you have a YouTube channel? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time keep dreaming x
