Why I Started My Blog & YouTube Channel

 

Hello my gorgeous friends! I am so excited to inform you that I am loving making YouTube videos! I knew that writing blogs was such a fun and creative outlet but my goodness so is sitting in front of a camera and talking to yourself for a bit! So today we are going to be talking in detail  about why & how I started my blog and YouTube Channel!

Website options

As you may know, there are so many different website options you can choose from when you are looking to start a blog. Most for beginners are free and extremely helpful when it comes to designing and everyday posting. I started with using WordPress.com, free and had many amazing reviews. From learning lots via the internet I found out that there were different WordPress options that seemed a bit confusing at first.

There is a very basic, easy to use, and free option on WordPress.com and then within this program you could pay money to upgrade and get more features. {Which I did upgrade after a while but then found that I wasted my money because what I really wanted to do I needed a different website/program entirely…. I’ll explain in a moment.} My mind about exploded when all of this learning happened in just a few months. Long story short, stick to the free WordPress.com  until you are no longer a beginner.

Then there is WordPress.org which is a much more elite or advanced program where you need to find a hosting company who you pay to host thru. As well as pay for a domain name, and code the website yourself. {Side Note: Many tears happened!} By myself, with little help from the internet and countless hours on the phone with a support team member… my website was finally created.

YAY!!!

Passion

With many laughs, tears and smiles under my belt I created something I felt so passionate about! To tell you the truth I don’t think I would take back any part of it. Blogging and posting videos on YouTube has made me happier than I could have imagined. I recommend you have the passion and drive before starting anything I explained above. I doubt I personally would have been able to accomplish what I did if this was barely a hobby.

Reaching out

I can’t give all of the credit to the patient men working for technical support, I also reached out to other amazing bloggers when I was creating! Of course they couldn’t {nor would I drag them into my mess} help me with the creating process. But I did ask them for tips on how to stay positive and how to get started. That was really what kept me going through some really low points.

Summery

My summery for you today is to follow your dreams, no matter how hard or how long it takes. Creating everything took months, money, and a lot of learning. But I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I do have to find time to write, record, edit and post but I do it because it brings me so much joy. I hope I was able to write about this subject just as well as I was able to when recording. Be sure to watch my video above for more details if you haven’t already!
