The last couple of years I have become an YouTube convert. I watch more YouTube now than regular ol’ TV. I think the change happened when Nate gave me an iPad for Christmas. After training for a couple half marathons, you can run out of shows to watch on Netflix so YouTube began to fill more and more of my treadmill running time. And now a few years later, it’s one of my favorite escapes.
I know most people must think of YouTube as cat videos or parodies, but it’s just a wealth of other info.
Here’s a few of my current favorite channels that talk about food, fitness, life and beauty.
- Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube
- NPR Music
- Tara Styles
Recently, I’ve really warmed up to the idea of video blogging or vlogging. There a lot of great vloggers on YouTube who record their daily lives or certain parts of their lives. It’s fascinating and highly addicting.
I decided to try vlogging on Easter. As a naturally shy person, it’s definitely out of my comfort zone, but its also exciting to push the envelope a little.
Here’s what I came up with.
Boy is vlogging all day hard work. Half the day I forgot to record and the other I look a little like a fool. But that’s all okay, because I still have a bunch to learn.
Besides vlogging, I plan on doing some other videos about DIY projects, recipes and daily life. So if you’ve been bitten by the YouTube bug like me, please subscribe to my channel.
