The Sunday Post: Starting A YouTube Channel

A few weeks ago, I did something I've wanted to do for a while and started my own YouTube channel. It's something I've been thinking about for at least the past few months but have never actually had the courage to do for a number of reasons; will people find my north east accent annoying? Will I be too awkward for the camera? How will I edit the videos? All of these doubts kept running through my mind until one day I just thought to myself "I can do it" and I pressed the publish button on my first video.

I was both terrified and excited thinking about how great it would be to get my confidence up enough to start YouTube properly and I'm really hoping I can do it. I know that if I didn't at least try it, I would do nothing but regret it and if I fail and it doesn't take off or if I don't enjoy it, I can say to myself at least you tried. I've got a few ideas of videos I want to create floating around in my head so I'm hoping to get those done in the next few weeks and get into a regular schedule uploading videos. I do still feel a bit like a technophobe when I'm editing and I'll admit I'm still a complete newbie to anything video related but hey, we've all gotta start somewhere right?

I uploaded my Amsterdam Video Diary a few days ago and it's a video I'm actually really proud of and I definitely think it's my best effort so far. Not only that, making videos like this is a great way to store memories and I actually really enjoyed creating this one! I've put it into this post so please do give it a watch and let me know your thoughts!

It would mean the world to me if you could subscribe to my channel by clicking here and I'd love to know your thoughts on my videos so far! Also, if you have any suggestions of videos you'd like to see from me in the future leave them in the comments below or tweet me @a_daawg - I'd really appreciate it!
