It is a few days since I set up my YouTube channel and now, 4 videos later, I am having such fun. I am finding that I am quite enjoying talking to myself! I don’t use a script and often sound very disjointed, but, to be honest, I quite like the finished product.
I am learning all the time. I’ve progressed from using the camera/video on my phone to downloading an app so that I can use my laptop. Now I just need to learn how to do all the tricky bits that others put in their videos. I want to be able to combine web pages with my videos and maybe include photos, but, at the moment I have no idea how to. In my latest video – ‘Talking about book 2’ I can’t even get the lighting right.
It is also a good job that I have reached the age when I am comfortable in my skin otherwise I would never upload anything; I would be too worried about people seeing wrinkles and double chins. I’m happy with how I look/sound and if others have a problem with me, well, quite frankly, that is their problem – not mine.
I’m just having too much fun!
