My YouTube Story!

Hello All, I hope Your All Well? Today I thought I'd Write about My YouTube Journey, It all started 3 years ago on May 5th 2014 I uploaded a rather cringe worthy video of me sitting on my bed talking to my web cam saying what I had done that day and why I had started my channel, Looking back now I find it so painful to watch for many reasons, One being I hadn't a clue what I was doing! and the other? Well my mum was ill very ill in fact she was dying with Cancer! I was her carer and was very alone and needed somewhere to escape for a few minutes a day just to get my mind away from death! I was 20 turning 21 the next month and already had gone through so much, I wasn't handling my mum being sick very well knowing she was dying and there was nothing I could do to stop this was so hard, Seeing her so ill everyday was hard so to help give me something positive I made my channel, At first it was just silly web cam videos but after a few of them I bought my first camera a canon IXUS 132 this was the camera I started to daily vlog on, At first I found it hard I wasn't the best at filming or editing but as time went on I got better They say practice makes perfect and boy were they right! I'm thankful that I started daily vlogging as I have memories of my mum in some vlogs that mean so much and I love that even though my mum knew she was dying she supported me and actually wanted me to film her which still surprises me! After she died I realized how much Vlogging actually helped me, It made my anxiety better helped me with my confidence! And Strangely got me though My Mum dying, So I made a decision I was gonna carry it on and I did and I'm glad I did, A year later My brother heard of a clay studio doing some classes near us and so took me along one day and so began a great Journey! Through that class I made life long friends and was the happiest I had been in years and I was allowed to Vlog!! Through vlogging I made friends with the people in the class I was so shy but when the camera was in my hands there was no stopping me, and now 3 years later I'm still vlogging! and LOVING it! I've made the most amazing memories through daily vlogging even though it's still painfully embarrassing to watch my vlogs but when I do I see how far I have come in the last 3 years!  So here is to the next 3 years!
