I've been looking forward to writing this post for a while now, because 1000 posts it's just plain old ridiculous! I can hardly believe it! *happy dances*
Okay, now that that's out of my system. Next topic!
Youtube and the idea of making videos has been on mind a lot recently, and actually for quite a while now. I enjoy watching book hauls and TBR lists, and I find them to be much more fun than just posting pictures on my blog. I've always been nervous about making videos, simply because I would have to show my face and the quality of my old camera was CRAP!
(This is how I felt making yesterday's video...)
I've never really recorded, downloaded, edited, or posted a legit video on Youtube. For the same reason I didn't tell very many people about blogging and Turning Pages. (If you want to know why I kept blogging a secret from many of my friends and family, CLICK HERE).
But with finally exposing my blog to my boyfriend, and getting positive feedback from him, my family, and my good friend Audris at YA Bookmark, I decided to record my most recent book haul (with about forty or so books) and post it.
If you've seen it, I know, it ABSOLUTELY sucks, and I am SOOO boring! But it's my first video, what do you expect!?
Practice Makes Perfect...
I'll work on the lightening, on the edited, and all the other technicalities, over time. I'm sure I can find some tutorials online, through Google.
Wait, what other videos are you making, Lisa?
I plan to record both book hauls as well as TBR lists at the beginning of the month. While I do like the idea of making videos and getting the chance to talk to you face-to-face (my face-to-camera?) I would rather write my reviews.
I might be making different types of videos later down the road, but for now TBR lists and book hauls are enough. But if you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them!
I hope to become more comfortable to talking the camera, and let my personality shine through; instead of putting you to sleep!
