Here’s one thing that’s been on my to-do list for the last 18-months: Learn How To Make A Video For Our YouTube Channel.
When we started our website one of the things my husband did was create a YouTube Channel. Just like I follow several travel bloggers, Brent tunes in to his favorite “vloggers.” (And yes- apparently that’s an actual thing. Video Bloggers.) I think he pictured us instantly having these insanely amazing videos on our site. But technology is not really my expertise and so our channel sat untouched.
Month after month I’ve worked through my to-do list. Everything else got crossed off, but still that item remained. In fact, I’ve even re-written it on several new lists since the first. So finally last month I decided to make it my priority.
With the help of a friend (who taught me about iMovie) and a local church (that provided an incredible Vacation Bible School for my children to attend while I sat at Starbucks playing with iMovie)- I made my first video. While I have to admit, it wasn’t the BEST video ever- I really didn’t think it was that bad. Of course that night when I showed it to Brent I could tell he thought my video editing skills needed a little work.
And so, little by little I’ve learned. Admittedly, I have a LONG way to go. There are so many things I want to be able to do, but just can’t figure out. It’s a learning process, but I’m starting somewhere. Hopefully in a year we can all look back and laugh at how amateur this video really is…but for today, I’m just happy to take out my highlighter and cross Learn How To Make A YouTube Video off the list!
