You may have noticed a new social media button appear to the right of my homepage. YouTube. I’ve dabbled in the past, but without any real focus so I’m really excited to have teamed up with the team at housetohome to launch a new weekly video blog series, Heather At Home. As well as plenty of interiors content (decorating projects, styling ideas, storage tips), I’ll be chatting about anything that’s caught my interest that week – from wellbeing to parenting to budgeting.
The key message from Grace Bonney’s keynote speech at Blogtacular was to do something that scares you, and for me, this is it. Not only am I much happier behind the camera (although luckily it appears I don’t mind being filmed half as much as I mind having my photograph taken), but having to put myself out that and shout ‘Oi! Look at me!’ throws me into an anxious panic. However, the way I see it is that if I’m not going to shout about it, no-one else is, and what’s the point of making videos if nobody is going to watch them, right? So I’m facing my fears head on. I’m enjoying the challenge of working in a different media, and it’s great to be able to see myself learning and improving as I go along.
So whether you’re already a YouTube addict, or if like me, you’re still a bit of a novice, please do subscribe to my channel to share my vlogging journey with me, and see a bit more of who I am behind the blog.
