Have you subscribed to my Youtube channel? Perhaps you’re one of my recent subscribers? (If you are, thank you!) Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had a few good news emails:
Frodo has subscribed to you on Youtube!
These emails made me realise that it’s been rather a long time since I last made a video.
“New subscribers will be expecting new videos,” I told my daughter Sophie. “Perhaps I should make one. I might even make a few of them.”
“I’ll help you, Mum. I’ll set up the lights for you.”
I looked at Sophie’s huge powerful lights looming over the camera. “Will all that light show up my wrinkles?”
“No. I’ve set the lights up for ‘beauty lighting’,” my daughter reassured me.
Beauty lighting? That sounded okay. So I sat down in front of the camera and started talking.
Normally, I’m pretty relaxed in front of the camera, but not this time. I kept making mistakes. Perhaps I was out of practice. I began to wonder if I should make a podcast instead. Or write a blog post. But I persevered and I got there in the end.
And when I’d finished the first video, I made a second one. And a third. I was on a roll. Over a period of two days, I made ten videos. That’s enough to call a series, isn’t it? And I might even make some more. Keep recording while I’m feeling inspired.
So the first video in this new series is called Facebook, iPhones, and Other Things. It’s an introduction, I’m-getting-warmed-up video. I talk about this and that, including Facebook and iPhones. The other videos are each on a specific topic.
Will you watch my new videos? You could subscribe to my channel. That would encourage me to keep on vlogging!
Are there any topics you’d like me to talk about in a future video? Perhaps you have a Youtube channel of your own. If you do, I’d love you to stop by and tell me about it!
