Why I Started a YouTube Channel


HEY YOU GUYS! I AM SUPER EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT I HAVE STARTED A YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!🎊🎊🎊🎊

Oh my word! I am so happy I can finally tell you guys about it! This has been a LONGGGG awaited thing that I have been organizing and creating secretly since I think around September or October. And boy was it hard for me to keep this little project a secret! Whenever I am working on something exciting, I just want to tell everyone I know, BUT I kept it a secret (I'm honestly proud of myself!) so it can be a fun & unexpected surprise.😊



You're probably wondering why I started a YouTube channel, especially since I already have a blog that requires a good amount of my attention.

Basically. I've been wanting to create a YouTube channel for the past year or two, but I was too afraid to put myself out there onto the Internet. Thus, I created a blog as a way for me to express myself via the Internet without necessarily having to share too much of my personal life publicly. However, as I uploaded my blog posts, I felt as if I was not showcasing my personality as clearly as I would like. Typing out what I wanted to say didn't fulfill my desire to connect with my readers on a more personal level. Plus, I found myself sometimes frustrated as I stared at my blank computer screen trying to come up with something to write.
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS, BUT I CONSTANTLY STRUGGLE WITH PUTTING MY THOUGHTS INTO WORDS, ESPECIALLY ON PAPER. ANYONE ELSE??

Thus, I am turning to YouTube as my main platform for content creating!

Now don't get me wrong! I absolutely enjoy blogging--I've met some great blogger friends this past year (Grace from "Totally Graced", Olivia from "Summer of 1999", and Abbie from "Abbie Music Blog"). 

AND BY NO MEANS AM I GOING TO STOP BLOGGING/DELETE THIS BLOG!

I will absolutely still publish monthly blog posts about my "Passion Story of the Month"💓 This is still an important project to me and many people have already applied to be a featured story.

WHO AM I TO STOP EMPOWERING PASSIONATE PEOPLE?

Bottom line is: I LOVE MY BLOG! IT WAS/WILL ALWAYS BE MY FIRST PASSION PROJECT!!💜💜

But, my heart is yearning for another platform that will allow me to showcase my personality and engage with my audience better. Think of it as if I am "blogging" still, but in a video format!

I WAS BITTEN BY THE VIDEO CONTENT CREATING BUG AND FORGOT TO PUT CORTIZONE ON IT🤣🤣 

My desire for video content creating was sparked after creating my first video for this blog: "Travel Diary: Hawaii". I REALLY enjoyed the process of planning out my shots/content and editing it! I LOVE the feeling I get when I finish editing a video and it turns out like my vision or even better than I what envisioned!!

Okay, wow! I wrote A LOT! YOU DA REAL MVP IF YOU'VE READ EVERYTHING I'VE WRITTEN SO FAR😘

Basically, this is what you can expect from me in this new year (2018):

-my main platform: YouTube ( I may make blog posts out of my videos--still thinking about this)
-at the end of each month, a "Passion Story of the Month" feature will be published (want to apply?  Click here!)

THANK YOU GUYS FOR READING THIS BLOG POST! It was quite lengthy, but this little project has been on my heart for a while and this blog post has been the easiest one for me to write so far! Yay, no writer's block!
