Well…I never thought I would be sitting here writing a post for my new blog. There are so many amazing bloggers out there who are fab at writing, a skill I do not possess. I do however love making videos and taking photos and that is how this all started.
Around two years ago I started watching a few ‘mum’ channels on YouTube and following their journeys, I can’t remember what got me started but I soon began subscribing to my favourites and remembering when uploads were due. I toyed with the idea of starting a channel myself but work, kids and life seemed to be far to draining on their own without adding another project to the mix. Plus, who would want to watch me?
Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I always have too many plates spinning. I somehow seem to get myself involved in all sorts, from supporting groups on facebook, to running community projects and events. I always enjoy the challenge, sense of achievement and the creativity it adds to my life that my day job can’t.
Finally, around 6 weeks ago I decided to focus my efforts on myself. What did I want to do outside of my job and my home life that would be a fun hobby for myself but also give me some new skills? I decided to go for it and start a YouTube Channel!
I didn’t have a clue how to film, edit or even upload a video! I quickly learnt loads, just how much was possible with my iPhone for starters. Watching tutorials and downloading new apps that helped me along the way. I’ve met so many lovely people and despite there being so much to know I am enjoying every minute and am still learning new skills. For example, I have just sat here in my kitchen for 4 hours getting this blog to look like a blog!
So here I am and that’s how my website came to be. My YouTube videos are about me and my family, our lifestyle and my love for interiors so the posts on here will follow the same themes. I really hope you enjoy this journey with me and my family and look forward to getting to know some of you better along the way!
