SHOULD I START A YOUTUBE CHANNEL IN 2017?

If I had a pound for every time someone asked me if I had a YouTube channel,  I’d be a millionaire by now. 

I really do want to venture into YouTube, in fact I have shot a few videos but I never seemed to be happy with the final product so I never upload/publicise them.

One of the main reasons why my videos never made it to being uploaded, would have to be that I thought that they were never good enough. ‘Comparison is the thief of all joy’ - Theodore Roosevelt - I hear ya' Theodore and I completely agree with with you, but there does come a time in you’re not strong enough to rise above it all, and for me YouTube videos are it. I often start to compare myself with the likes of Patricia Bright or Shirley B Eniang – my fave YouTuber’s ever, who have been doing YouTube for yours now – so I technically shouldn’t be comparing my starter upper channel to them, but hey it’s happening!

I HATE the sound of my own voice.  I also strongly believe that most of the things I say don’t actually make sense. Have you ever watched a YouTube video and have activated the subtitles feature to it? I have done so on many videos (a nasty habit I picked up from the parents, I even have subtitles on when I watch Netflix) and most of the time the video subtitles are in sync with what’s being said for YouTube videos. Not for me though – in one of my video’s that never made the cut and is currently set to private on a YouTube page that I started but never made anyone aware of it’s existence, MY subtitles did not in any way actually match what I was saying. Boy were they way off. To me, this firmly suggested that my voice is so inconsistent that it actually shouldn’t be heard. I am currently working on getting over this and do recognise that the fact that my Brummy (Birmibgham) -esque accent may have a strong influence on what the subtitles outcome my be in comparison to the well spoken and posh sounding London bloggers whose videos I watch.

YouTube is different. It’s a lot different from me posting on my blog or social media. I feel like it’s putting yourself out there more than anything ever and I have a fear that no one would watch my videos. I guess I don’t feel like I do anything interesting most days to put a Vlog together or anything and I because my personality is so sarcastic I don’t think most people would get my sense of humour. But I guess in a way, my dry sense of homour is not just for me, as others in the world share the same sense of homour as me, afterall the definition and creation of the words 'dry sense of humour' were coined exclusively for me.

Obviously the excuses can go on forever … and ever ever annd EVER EVEEER (click here to make sense of the everness - skip to 2:55 on the vid). I need to just stop, I need to stop caring what the response for any videos that I make will be and just do it (yes I do love Nike, if you're wondering...). If my videos are boring, then they will be lessons learnt and I will get better. I guess the main thing that I need to do is to just get my myself out there. After all I shouldn’t be living life being too scared about what other people might think and if my YouTube video is strange, then I guess it’s a true reflection of my personality.
