YouTube Lately

I've been trying more to get into YouTube lately as it's something I enjoy, and it pushes me out of my comfort zone a bit which can only be a good thing when you're a bit of a wallflower like me!

My editing is pretty terrible (Thanks Windows Live Movie Maker for being pretty abysmal!) and my camera, considering it's only a few months old and a Canon specifically made for vlogging, is pretty crap - and I myself tend to just rabbit on or film things in a wonky manner (I'm not advertising my channel very well here, am I?!) - but hey, I'm learning.

And it's fun.

And even if nobody else watches them - Tyne bloody loves them!!!

But incase anyone does feel like it, I would love it if you fancied subscribing to my channel which is HERE.

I film all kinds of random things from haul videos, to chatty updates to sobbing post partum self-pitying rants (apparently...) 

Here are a couple of things I've put up this week...

This is a Favourite Things tag I filmed to join in with the fabulous VlogStars linky hosted by You Baby Me Mummy & Mr & Mrs T Plus Three - I LOVE this linky as it pushes me to film and join in every couple of weeks.

And this is our latest family weekly vlog from last week which is just little snapshots of our everyday life...

Do you have a YouTube channel? I'm always looking for new people to watch so please let me know!

And check out VlogStars too - it is so much fun to join in with!

  1. Good for you. I think you are so brave, I won't even put a photo of myself on my site!! I have yet to learn how to do hyperlinks/links to other sites & a who load of stuff that I don't even know about yet! And you are vlogging!!! You will get better and learn as you go - that's part of the fun. Be proud of yourself. I'm inspired by you. Sammie
