Do you ever feel like you’re faking who you are? Or not completely being yourself? Well that’s honestly how I started to feel making videos.
Because I am a planner, I started planning what I would say in each of my videos (which you could probably tell). The more I watched my own posts I realized that my love for structure was decreasing the authenticity of what I was saying.
To fix this issue, I’ve decided to stop making videos and write more. Because let’s be honest, I’m a lot better at expressing myself that way. I thought making short vlogs would bring more views and attention to my blog, but I don’t feel that I should compromise my personality along the way. The whole reason I started this blog was because of my love for writing. And I want you guys to know the real me.
Now at least I can say I tried, but it wasn’t for me. It wasn’t a complete waste; I was able to teach myself how to edit videos, which was a huge accomplishment for me. Something to add to my personal resume.
Don’t worry! The monthly challenges will still continue, just in a different format. So stay tuned for more info about Judicious June.
(And who knows, maybe I’ll be more comfortable in front of the camera in the future.)
