thoughts from a youtube addict

Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of making Youtube videos. By toying, I mean that I’ve thought about it, remembered that I hate how my voice sounds on camera, realized I’d have to edit the videos, and then ultimately decided against it. Added to that is the fact that I’m not a consistent blogger so I probably wouldn’t be a consistent vlogger and my life is so painfully boring I wouldn’t want to watch it – it’s bad enough that I have to live it.

All of this being said, there are people who do actually keep up with making videos, boring life and all. I’ll admit, I looove watching them. I have made them a part of my nightly routine. Sometimes I’ll watch them while I paint my nails or I’ll have them on in the background while I do my online (window) shopping. I usually stick to vlogs and makeup videos with a sprinkling of planner and book ones in between.

It’s been a while since I’ve started to watch YouTube regularly so, of course, I have commentary about most of them.
