My first Youtube video: August Favourites
Friday, 30 August 2013
If you have followed my blog for a while, you will know that I have attempted Youtube a few times before, however I never made those videos public. This is my first proper public video and I cant pretend it doesn't make me nervous.
Obviously the main nerves come from the fact that people I know may find the whole concept slightly weird, as I guess its not something that everyone will understand. I have really enjoyed watching Youtube for over two years now, and wanted to be part of the 'community'. I dont want to become 'youtube famous', I just want to enjoy a little hobby. Which is sharing my thoughts and opinions on beauty products that I really like. I am not a beauty expert in the slightest but I hope that by joining youtube I can learn and become more knowledgable.
It has only been over the past two years that I have really loved beauty products. I have to be honest and say that I was never really interested before as I have always been quite the tom-boy (don't get me wrong, I still am). I started my blog back in 2010 and I wrote little updates about my life, never imagining in the slightest that anyone would read it or appreciate it, and then to my surprise people began to find me and follow me and I very quickly gained quite a substantial following, that truly blew me away. I then began to follow beauty and fashion blogs as it seems that the bloggosphere is in-undated with them and then from there (by watching Fleurdeforce, Viviannadoesmakeup and many others) I began to really appreciate beauty products and what they actually do. I now feel like a young lady, who cares about their appearance (well, most days anyway) and wants to learn more.
I don't really care if people I know find it a peculiar hobby, there are certainly more peculiar things to do in your spare time besides uploading youtube videos (for example, I dont even know how some people can sit on computer games for hours each day?!). Its something I enjoy doing and it doesnt change who I am in the slightest. So, in short, enjoy my video and please comment, like and subscribe if you wish as it will really help boost my slightly low confidence on the whole 'youtube' thing!
