I have been thinking about this for several months now and finally decide to take the plunge. No, not getting married or even sky diving. I decided to start a You Tube channel. And trust me, every thought that came into my head of why this was a bad idea was there.
- This will make your depression and anxiety worst
- No one will watch it.
- You are going to pervert weird dos who wants to have sex with you.
- Your privacy will diminish.
But I decided to tell all of my doubts to go away and give it shot. If it flops, I can hopefully delete the channel.
And so far, the channel has a been a complete adventure. For one thing, I wanted to name it Original Things, but that name was taken. So I called it Lesley Creates. I am also shooting it from my phone and trying to figure out the set up was interesting, but I got it done. Where I did shoot my first video which caused more delays.
For starters, the video tanked.
I did test videos before. I recorded myself wiggling my toes. I realized that it is Academy winner, but I wanted to practise shooting and get the hang of editing. I even found music that I can used without getting into trouble.
I thought I already got the hang of it when I shot my first video. Except it showed sideways and I couldn’t rotate it. So all of that was delete.
I am currently editing my second video, a Valentine’s Day card. There is a few mistakes, but so far, it is ok. I didn’t realized editing from my phone takes a lot of power. I am currently charging my phone so I can finish. Not to mention, it takes at least five minutes to save the video.
As you can guessed, the channel is going to about crafts, mainly paper crafts. I would like to figure out of how to incorporate yarn, but that is a working progress. I also have a few ideas of creative storage.
Here is the link to the channel, Lesley Creates I am hoping that this link works.
I hope everyone had a good weekend.
