You might already know that I had a go at Vlogmas last year (It feels weird saying ‘last year’!) on my You Tube channel. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, ‘Vlogmas’ is a You Tube challenge to put up a vlog (video log) (Just in case my parents are reading this!) every day of December up until Christmas. I reached as far as day nineteen and sadly I had to give up. Even though I use an external hard-drive for the videos to free memory space; my old laptop just couldn’t keep up. Whenever I tried to edit my videos the mouse would freeze or go really slowly and the whole thing became impossible. Well Chris has been telling me for a while I needed to upgrade, and I have been coveting the pink macbook and I have finally bought one. Hooray! I can get back to video editing!
Anyway, the question is, now that Vlogmas is over and I’ve nearly caught up on editing the videos; should I carry on?
I think daily vlogging is out of the question for me. Firstly, my life is just not interesting enough! At Christmas there are a lot more interesting things to do or visit than my normal life the rest of the year could keep up with. Secondly, I just found it too time consuming and if I had to choose between writing or videoing, I’d definitely choose writing, and writing this blog takes up all my time when I’m not working. However, I did enjoy making the videos; and I enjoyed the first vlog I made when we had a little trip to Cornwall, and I particularly like having visual memories to look back on. So I’m going to try weekly vlogging ie. condense a whole week into one short video. It pretty much solves all the other problems! So, as of tomorrow, I will be picking up my camera every now and then and give it a go.
Did you do Vlogmas? If so, are you missing it or glad to see the back of it?!
