Why I Started a YouTube Channel

Hi you guys!

As many of you probably already know, I finally launched my YouTube channel!

Yup. I pulled the trigger.

I had been contemplating the idea of starting a channel for a very long time but kept procrastinating (…shocker). Last week felt right, though. So I set up shop in my bedroom and just went for it. With less than 3 minutes of planning my script, I said YOLO and pressed ‘record’. Due to my lack of planning, the editing process was PAINFUL. For real. You should see the cringe-worthy bloopers. Major props to full-time vloggers… it is NOT as easy as it looks.

With that being said, I wanted to share my reasons for starting my YouTube channel.

  1. I want you guys to see the real, exposed me. I feel like I’ve been hiding behind my computer and iPhone for almost 4 years now! YouTube not only seemed like the appropriate next step with blogging but the perfect opportunity to develop a deeper connection with those of you who have been following my journey.
  2. I needed to spice it up. Sure, my website will always take priority on my list, but why not add a new platform into the mix? Creating my channel and learning everything that comes along with it has been quite the challenge.  Stagnancy is no bueno. (tips welcomed!)
  3. I can get my point across better. Obviously, my website is strictly pictures and written words. YouTube opens the door to a different way of expressing myself. For example, in my most recent video, you can really SEE and HEAR how much I LOVE this WEN Body Treatment. Kind of embarrassing, right?
  4. More creative freedom. I’m super excited to start creating more video content. There are so many things that I can now do and/or show you all through video that I couldn’t do through my website. Plan on seeing more lifestyle, beauty, and recipes on my channel.
