Just to let you guys know I’ll be taking a short blogging break for the next week or two – I wasn’t even sure if writing a blog post about this was necessary but I didn’t want you to wonder where I am and why I’m not blogging this week.
Neal and I are going to Cape Town for a couple of days and although we’re only leaving on Friday, I have some things that I need to sort out before we leave. AND I’m planning on giving my blog a little makeover in the future, so I’ve been trying to get my thoughts in order on how I want it to look and what I want to change (plus I’m still deciding whether I should use a local web designer or an overseas one).
Then, I’m also working hard to get my Youtube channel started, I’ve been receiving so many messages and emails from you guys motivating me to start it, so I have been trying really hard to get all my ducks in a row. It has been a struggle (for a couple of months now), to say the least, because I want the quality of the videos to be good for you guys. I’m the type of person who likes watching high quality (HD) Youtube videos with great lighting, and professional editing. So whilst I’ve been trying to get a filming section set up, and been struggling with getting the right lighting and settings on my camera, I’ve also had to start doing research on how to edit videos. Let’s get real, I’m a 31-year old woman who is VERY technologically challenged and it feels like I’ve been having one long brain fart for the past year or so. My brain is just unable to hold information for long, plus I just can’t seem to concentrate for long periods of time. It’s so frustrating, I even purchased a Sprayology Brain Power to see if it will kick start my unfocused mind.
Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, girls, but once you hit 30…it’s all downhill from there!
It sounds like I’m complaining about the things that I am planning for my blog, I’m really not, change is good and learning new things is always great. But it can sometimes get a bit overwhelming and that’s how I’m feeling at the moment. Overwhelmed. So I am going to take a couple of days to get my thoughts in order, to decide what I like about my blog (and change the things I don’t like about it), and to focus on filming my first Youtube video and being 100% happy with the end result to load it onto Youtube for you guys to see. Plus, I’ll be clearing out LUSH’s shelves whilst I’m in Cape Town so I’m training hard for that too – haha!
I need YOUR help with something please – let me know in the comments section below:
1. Whether you watch Youtube videos?
2. What type of videos you enjoy watching?
3. What you think my first video should be (Haul? Empties? Review?)
I’m thinking of purchasing a few extra things from LUSH and will have a giveaway linked to my first or second Youtube video – a type of celebration for making it through my first filming and editing experience. What do you think?
As always I really appreciate the time you guys take out of your day to pop onto my blog and leave a comment, it’s always a highlight of my day! I’ll see you soon!
