anniversary: one year on YouTube
It amazes me. Just one year ago it all started. My YouTube journey, that is. I was absolutely terrified. I remember sitting there....camera poised and ready to go....wondering. Would anyone watch? Would anyone care? Can I actually do this? A year later and my YouTube channel still exists. Despite my fears. Not only does it exist? It has become my own little creative outlet. My little piece of the world. I love watching it grow. Tying it into my blog posts. And even filming.
These days? There is something special to me about the recording process. Sometimes it goes well. Other times it feels laborious and difficult. But there is this indescribable feeling when it all comes together. This sense of pride and accomplishment. It is unlike anything else I have done. And that feeling? It is something I am still getting used to. Even after a year. Who knows? Maybe I never will.
One thing I do know.....I have come a long way. I decided to re-watch that first YouTube video and my gosh. It was far from perfect. Then I compared it to my later videos. It was like night and day. I am so much more comfortable on camera. And my editing is slowly (very slowly) getting better. My goal at the moment is to continue to grow. To get even better on camera. To up my editing skills. To make my lighting amazing. To push myself creatively.
My YouTube channel has certainly come a long way. And I can't help but feel proud as I celebrate my one year anniversary. So, I leave you with this. My latest YouTube video for the creation of beauty is art. It is all about marking this incredible milestone.
Thank you all so much for your support. Your kind words. Your encouragement. It means so much to me. If you haven't already? Please take a peek at my channel and let me know what you think!
