What I Got For My Birthday 2018

Hello Adventurers!

This year for my birthday, as I have for the last couple of years, I went with my parents to Torremolinos in Spain as I am lucky enough for my Dad to pay for and take me to Spain around my birthday.  This year I turned twenty-two and I had a great time.  I do wonder when I have my birthday if I should be doing more for it to celebrate, but I just want to spend time relaxing on my birthday as when I am at home, I work all the time and only get one day off a week.  I spent the day relaxing, reading, watched a film, dinner, and then bed… WHAT A GREAT DAY!

So, now moving onto what I actually got for my birthday for presents which technically came in five batches.  I got two presents before I left for my holiday/actual birthday, presents on my birthday, items I bought on my birthday with some birthday money, at the airport heading home from Spain I shopped in Desigual and then presents that were waiting for me back home that were too big to take with us on holiday.  Let’s-a-go!

Essentials For Videoing: Part 2

Hello Adventurers!

This is the second part of my three-part ‘Essentials For Videoing’ vlogging series.  Now, whilst I don’t consider myself an expert in any way, shape or form… I have spent this year filming and uploading vlogs and have learnt so much that I hope sharing that knowledge with you will make your vlogging journey, if you chose to take it, easier.  I’m including some hints and tricks that I have also picked up along the way.

Essentials For Videoing: Part 1

Hello Adventurers!

Last week I finished telling you about how I created my YouTube space.  So, seeing as my next task was to actually start producing (filming and editing) and uploading YouTube videos.  I thought that I would create another series to help you guys with what I find to be ‘essentials for videoing’.  With this being the first in this series, I thought that I would start with what I have found to be essential filming equipment as this is usually the first step into making videos.

Creating My YouTube Space: Part 16

Hello Adventurers!

Just a quick warning to say that this is the final installment in this series… only until I get my own house you understand.  I cannot believe how quickly this series has come to its inevitable stand still, however I am really excited that in the future I will be able to bring this series, and hopefully many more like it, to life again.

Creating My YouTube Space: Part 15

Hello Adventurers!

So to continue on from last week, I was trying to find an alternative to the chest of drawers as they now had a different use.  The other reason we didn’t really follow up on the chest of drawers was firstly, that it was really heavy to move and with my chest I cannot move it on my own and secondly the lighting and placement of it didn’t look right in the camera.

Creating My YouTube Space: Part 14

Hello Adventurers!

Following on from my previous blog post in this series, I found it too much of an emotional and mental struggle to film in the situation I was in, so I gave videoing a break for a long time and devoted all my time to my blogging work.

Creating My YouTube Space: Part 13

Hello Adventurers!

The furniture, the floor, the lights, the wall, the boxes were cleared.  Everything was ready.  Now on to: making the garage (or at least where I am working) warm, lighting options, how to best set up the camera and the perfect focus, and last, but not least, setting up the microphone.
