One of my biggest supporters in life is my brother.
He is undoubtedly the coolest person I know, and he constantly tells me my blog posts are great and that my writing is fantastic. The funny thing is he probably doesn't give a crap about what lipstick I like or what eyeshadow looks best with brown eyes, but he reads my posts and likes everything on social media. That, my friends, is love. He knows that blogging makes me really happy which is why he has never doubted me for a second.
I honestly cannot count how many times in the past year I have said "I want to start a YouTube channel." My friends and family have heard it all many maany times. I've even posted about it on social media a few times and gotten great feedback. Some have dropped their mouths in shock and horror while others have totally supported the idea. The reactions have been all over the place but it's something I can't stop talking about; somehow everyone I've come into contact to has mentioned something about a blog or YouTube and I dive right into my love for both. Seriously though- today while I was shopping at Angl the sales associate and I started talking about our love for certain LA based YouTubers and she told me I should start the channel and never look back.
The good and bad feedback has scared the crap out of me because there will be a lot of hate, and a lot of rude comments without a doubt. I've come to the point where I think that is worth me creating another outlet and hobby for myself, something I can enjoy. No doubt it will be hard work, but I know I will enjoy filming, editing, and posting.
This is the year I do this...I will start my own channel. Now that I've told you, there's no going back. I am going to "put myself out there" and see if I can handle a full time job, four blog posts a week and a YouTube channel. Something that would be extremely helpful and awesome is if you had ideas, tips, tricks, comments, anything related to a new YouTube channel.
Have you started your own channel? What advice, ideas, and suggestions do you have for a YouTube newbie? I would love to hear!
