Anyway, apparently I have forgotten how to write. So please bear with me during the reading of this post.
I finished my 365!!!!! Can you believe it? I made a video exposing myself, my insecurities, my artful journey, and whatever else was going on in my life for 365 days straight! It was tiring, stressful, INSANE, but extremely satisfying. I don't think there is anything (outside of stuff I do for my family) that I have done so consistently. I mean, I QUIT every single of of my jobs! Well, except for that one that I got fired from .
Anyway, I clearly love to make videos. I like to force myself to confess my shortcomings, I like to edit -and have gotten pretty fancy with it, if I do say so, myself ;-), but mostly, I love to capture the moments with my kids. A lot of times when I am editing, I catch something that I didn't notice before - like Anaya pulling Zekey's hair - which TOTALLY explains why he started *randomly* screaming... And I get to remember stuff that happened. Like I watched my very first day in the life video the other day and it was so fun to watch how my kids interacted back then. I am looking forward to recording them for as long as YouTube will allow me to upload videos - and when I can't - I will probably find some other place to store them.
So, I am actually continuing to make daily videos on another channel: mommywifecrafter. I am doing mostly day-in-the-life type videos because those are my absolute favorite ones to watch. Here are some other channels that do them that I watch pretty regularly:
It's judy's life
My other channel (ayanared) will mostly be about my creative journey and tutorials. I separated them because I like stuff that is clean. And when someone subscribed I would have no idea WHY - and I would wonder if they were looking for more tutorials - or more daily stuff.
So, I actually took down all of my 365 vlogs. For 2 reasons. (1) (as mentioned above) To keep my daily/kid/cooking stuff separated from my creative stuff. (2) Because my 365 videos kinda sucked. Now when I write that - I feel kinda self conscious. It reminds me of a friend I had in high school who had the worst pizza face I have ever seen. He was also one of the nicest, funniest guys I have ever met. So, imagine my dismay when he asked me one day if his face looked like it was breaking out? I mean what do you say to that? CLEARLY his face was broken out - but maybe he meant *more* broken out than usual - which would be impossible for me to tell. So, yeah - maybe the difference in my vlog quality is not so significant to you as it would be to me.
But here is my first vlog: And here is my latest:
Oh and if you are wondering why you can still see the first vlog (even though I said I took them down - it is because I didn't really take then down - I just unlisted them. So, they are still accessible with a link, even though they are not seen on my channel or with a search.
Of course I am not deleting them!!!
