To YouTube or not to YouTube?

I've been thinking about this for quite some time now, although I've never got round to it. I think it would be quite fun to delve into, however I'd have to start either in summer at my parents' home, or in the new flat next year as there just isn't enough space in my prison-like room at University. Also, the walls here are super thin so it'd be so embarrassing to know my flatmates could hear me talking to myself!

I'd love to show off a bit more of my personality to you, because sometimes I struggle to do so in product reviews on the blog. The YouTube channel that I'd be using is pretty much dead at the moment since I've never uploaded any videos before, but it's a challenge that I'd like to take on! My only thought is that since there are just so many people on YouTube these days, I'm wondering if I might just get lost in the crowd.

  3. I say definitely go for it (already subscribed to your channel now)! I had been wanting to start a youtube for so long and finally did in January and am so in love with it all! It's so much more fun, there is lots more interaction and yes you can definitely show a lot more personality! It can be intimidating because there are so many out there already. My advice is to have a good camera and decent editing software to make quality videos! And most importantly, be yourself and do something different! They way to stand out is to do something different than others... don't just join and do what everyone is already doing... that is a sure way to get lost in the crowd. Think before you officially start your channel on what you can offer or so that is unique. And do that! Lastly, be consistent! Don't start if you don't plan to keep it up... You will lose the interest of those who follow you...


    Anyways, hope that helps! And if you'd like, come check out my channel (user name agapelovegirl) or find the direct link on my blog agapelovedesigns.com

    1. That's true, and I don't think I'd be able to post frequently at first as need to teach myself how to edit, but we'll see how it goes! :)

  8. My comment didn't post :(
    I said that as you already have a following, some people will follow you over to YouTube.
    Besides that, YouTube should be for YOU, building an audience is just a plus
