One of my birthday goals this year was to do more video blogging in a serious and artful way. I've done some simple all-in-one-take videos in the past, but I don't want to do any more of those. They feel lazy and they don't stretch my creativity of give me a chance to learn new skills.
I've been thinking about what kinds of subjects might make good videos for the blog, and taking inspiration from really beautifully filmed tutorials like this recipe one (truly a work of art!) and this DIY one (shows so much personality!)
When I saw this skincare advice video made by fellow blogger Alexandra of To Vogue or Bust and read what she shared about wanting to do more video blogging but being a bit scared (a sentiment I echo wholeheartedly), it really gave me the kick in the pants I needed to just take the first step.
Even if my first videos weren't perfect, I would learn along the way, just like I've learned (and continue to learn) everything else I know about blogging.
So here's my first step. I hope you enjoy it! Feedback is always appreciated. Thanks, loves!
