What I have learned from Vlogging

Hi there finally I manage to type up this Blog for a change lol. I have been planning this for a few weeks but have been busy panning a new style of vlog, well new to me but others have done the same but better lol..

So about a year ago I started vlogging but only once a week or maybe every few weeks but my confidence was pretty weak so I did struggle allot especially when editing the vlogs, I have always had a keen interest in video editing, I have filmed lots of things before I vlogged I filmed lots of locations when I went on Holiday like Paris and trips out but I was never in the videos, was always the one holding the camera.

what got me interested in Vlogging was when I was put as a Supervisor of the Charity shop in dover for Emmaus, I was doing a daily diary where I would get into work and then video me chatting to my mobile this was only for my keeping so I could look back on how it started and I could see a big improvement in my learning because I was keeping track of the work. this got me thinking more about becoming a Vlogger, the only YouTubers I was following were Olan Rogers and a few gaming vlogs.

I accidentally came across Joe Suggs vlogs from varied random searches on YouTube and I was hooked lol and then found out that his sister was a vlogger Zoella then I started getting hooked on her vlogs and then lol her boyfriend was also a Vlogger Alfie Deyes and I started getting hooked on his vlogs, this then gave me the confidence to go ahead and film myself chatting complete nonsence and uploading and seeing what happens, I think for a few months I was on about 3 subscribers but I never gave up, I changed my style more times that I can think and slowly and i mean slowly I started to get more confident even to the point where I gave Vlogmas 2016 a go and managed to do all 24 days inc xmas day so I was well pleased. Vlogmas was only 6 months ago and since then I have grown with vlogging or should I say Evolved I look back at the Vlogmas I did and I am not really happy with most of it, I could have put more effort into it, the only good thing was the christmas tree lol but this year I plan on doing it all again but allot better.

Back to the title of this vlog, What I have learned from Vlogging….

  1. its a full time job
  2. editing can take more time than filming
  3. having a busy day and filming lots can get confusing when editing
  4. changing the style of vlogging there is more to it than that
  5. you have to have a passion for vlogging or it does not show in your vlogs
  6. every day is different even though the scenery can be the same
  7. very tricky when its just me and no group of mates
  8. trying to please everyone
  9. keeping your subscribers from unsubscribing
  10. social media is a brilliant way to get yourself known
  11. finding other vloggers to collaberate with
  12. the thrill of another famous vlogger answering one of your messages.
  13. theres lots more lol…
  14. BIGGGGEEESSSTTT thing is your confidence and communication skills improve so much that everyone around you notices..
  15. vlogging in public is the scariest thing i have ever done.

If you are one of the bloggers who wants to try vlogging give it a try, one good thing about youtube is that you can upload a video and keep it hidden until you feel confident to make it public.

I hope this Blog has not been to boring for you all. I just wanted to share with you why I vlog and how it can boost confidence.

Thank you for reading this and hope you come back soon, I do leave links here to my Vlogs on YouTube.

Back with a Vlog

Sorry I have been a bit quiet the past few weeks been sorting out my life a little and getting back on track with work etc,.

Hope everyone is well??

I have a new vlog up tonight Thursday 8th June 2017 5pm GMT

THURS 8THJUNE

I have changed my style of Vlogging as well now only Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays I upload vlogs, and have calmed down a bit on recording every day which seemed pointless after awhile because I was deleting most of them and it was overtaking things at work think I was getting addicted to pointing the camera at my face lol.

I hope to produce better quality vlogging in the next few months as I have learned allot and not affraid to point the camera and video at different things and places.

If you can please check out my YouTube channel and like or just watch a few videos and see what you think, I did a 24days of christmas last year which was cool but I was still a beginner.

My Weekly Vlog in one go lol

Mondays vlog this was the day before I was on the IKS EXPLORATION vlog and gained lots more Subscribers.

Tuesdays vlog I was so happy on this day even though at the time I had only gained about 8 Subscribers from being on another vlog.

Wednesday more and more Subscribers joining me which I am so happy about.

Thursday now on 41 Subscribers thats a big jump from me the beginning of the week before i was on the IKS vlog my subscription was at only 18 and now a jump of 23 subscribers, I know this is not much compared to other YouTuber’s but to me its amazing. ¬†This vlog I update you all on the state of the Banksy Picture which has had a few hiccups, More graffiti on it and someone stole a piece of the picture and its on ebay for ¬£3,000 how sad is that.

Friday.. Only just uploaded this to YouTube and within 10mins 2 views which is a shock for one of my vlogs lol. and of course 1 like lol

Banksy in Dover Kent

Whilst typing this I already have planns to film a vlog next to the Banksy work of art, so expect one of my Vlogs for YouTube very soon hopefully Sunday, Lucky yesterday I went on my dinner break to take some pics but there were so many people around and with a stroke of luck the shop I work in is only 2 seconds away litterally open the back door and you are there lol. I also bumped into another YouTuber IKS EXPLORATION which I follow and chatted to them and I will be in there vlog next week lol. The only safe time to take these picutes was 7.40 am when there is no one around.

So here are the pictures I have taken this morning 10th May 2017 7.45am Wednesday

Hope you like them and I will link my #Banksy vlog when its done and edited..
