DORKS! Guess what? I FINALLY AM ALIVE IN THE YOUTUBE UNIVERSE. My #1 piece of feedback since I first started my blog in 2013 has been, "I HATE READING PLZ GET A YOUTUBE". And as much as I want to give my followers what they want - my anxiety just gets in the way. I love writing more than anything too - it's my passion. One of the most disheartening things in this day of age is the lack of actual reading going on. Yeah we skim articles but Podcasts are taking over. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that BUT I really hope the world of books / blogging does not die.
With the help of Stephen and my good friend Kassie - I have a pretty good lookin' YouTube video: gorgeous lighting and cute music that is absolutely not copyrighted. Another hindrance in beginning my YouTube career has simply been lack of equipment. I did not want to half ass start a channel that looked like it was shot from a 2000 Razor flip phone during an earthquake. A huge part of the audience digging your content is that it's nicely shot! Stephen even purchased me an official camera for Vlogging and content too which basically left me with no excuse to keep putting this off.
I'm most enthralled to start hosting my interviews on camera rather than simply a text transcript. I do think that will be extremely more enjoyable for the viewer to hear tones, pauses and things of that nature in my chats with inspiring peeps.
Please excuse how awkward, anxious and tense I am! I wanted to simply jump in and get a groove going. Slowly but surely my little shell will fall off and I will morph into my loosey goosey geeky self. I pushed through this after 12 takes and once I felt comfortable I actually enjoyed filming. I will be posting at least once a week on here in conjunction with my blog! I'm keeping this post short to highlight my video so please watch it, like it, subscribe and share! OH and of course #staynerdy!
ME NEWS OF THE WEEK
Okay so it was my birthday last week meaning it was entirely dedicated to me. I had one of the best birthdays I could possibly imagine: Melting Pot, Disneyland, gifts, tattoos...I'm so spoiled. 26 honestly never felt better or scarier.
PERFECT HUMANS NEWS OF THE WEEK
We have a new collection drop available at my shop, Perfect Humans! It's with Nikki Rex and is obviously no other Dino themed with only pastels, pinks and golds as the color scheme. We also finalized our Sailor Scout bookmark composition so the rest of the series will be complete soon which means they will be available in the near future!
