I’ve been wanting to make a video for a while. I’m not really into the whole YouTube scene; there are a few bloggers who also dip their toe into the world of videos that I like to keep up with (Penny at Lillies and Love and Becky at Becky Bedbug in particular), but I don’t often watch the videos of the YouTube glitterati.
But I decided that I could probably turn my hand to making a video without it being too terrible, and so I decided to put it on my 32 Before 32 list in the hope that it would spur me on. And it has! I made the video last week, and I edited it in the most basic way possible (using Windows Live Movie Maker). I know that proper YouTubers have lots of fancy equipment, but I have to work with what I have, and I don’t think the results are too bad!
So without further ado, I’d like to present my YouTube debut. Please be nice; constructive criticism would be very welcome but I’m fairly delicate so please couch it in the nicest possible terms!
If, for any reason, you can’t see the video, you can find it on my YouTube page here.
Watching it back, I realised that I talk quite fast, so I should probably slow down if I do any more videos! I’ve also spotted a whole load of other things that I want to avoid in the future, but it’s probably not a good idea to list them all here! It’s probably just me being nitpicky, so I’m just taking them on board and hopefully I’ll remember them next time (hopefully there will be a next time!).
