Let's do this. Let's talk vlogging.
Making beauty videos is definitely more of a controlled environment type of thing because I sit stationary, make a decision about what I want to show/teach you, and there is a clear start and end. When it came to vlogging I found myself unsure about what to film. How do I know if my daily life is interesting or boring to my viewers? What are my personal boundaries about what I do and don't want you to see? How do I give you an opportunity to get to know me better without seeming guarded or rehearsed? I decided that because I watch a lot of vlogs I should use them as research in trying to figure out what I should vlog about myself.
Vlogging is a very different thing. It definitely puts me in a much more vulnerable state. I didn't think I cared what others thought about me until suddenly I was sitting in my car holding my camera up and looking left to right to see if anyone was watching. Why was I so freaked out?
Sometimes fears that are lying underneath the surface come creeping right up when you least expect them. It's awkward talking to a camera with other people around. But I'm ready to face that fear! *I hope. . .
Enough of that blabbing because I am preparing for Vlogmas and am so excited to vlog every day for you all. As promised, I have a filmed a weekend vlog for you. Let me know if you like them and if all goes well through Vlogmas, maybe weekend vlogs will become a regular thing. Enjoy!
