Weekend In My Life: Food Blogging, Fitness + Eats (My First Vlog!)

Guys. I did something. I made my first YouTube video🙊

Dancing for Donuts | Weekend in My Life: Food Blogging, Fitness, and LA Eats (My First Vlog!!!)

I’m not gonna lie to you, I’m kind of afraid to post this, but I’m also kind of really proud so I want to share it with you…

I promised myself I would learn how to create and edit video in 2018, so here I am! It’s not perfect, the sound isn’t great and the transitions are off, plus I definitely need to work on my lighting and my voice, but HEY. I’ll get there😊

If I’ve hung out with you in the last few months, you probably know that I’ve become semi-addicted to YouTube videos…I’m not sure why, but I do know that I feel like I know some of the YouTubers I follow (which is ridiculous, I know…) because it is SO much easier to get to know someone via video rather than writing or photos. Do you know what I mean? Like if you can hear someone’s voice and picture them, you can just get a sense of their personality much better. So it was this idea, coupled with the fact that I want to be able to offer video services to my social media clients, that I decided to start vlogging. I had the MOST fun time making this and I honestly can’t wait to make more.

That being said, please oh please give me feedback, even if it’s a little negative (I have thick skin)! I want to get better, to make better content for YOU so if there’s something you’d want to see more or less of, or if you think this is a silly idea altogether, feel free to let me know. I appreciate your honesty! And if you want to see more, just hit the subscribe button on the bottom right under the video once you’re on YouTube’s actual website😊

    This was really good for your first vlog! The one piece of constructive criticism I have is the sound. The music is so much louder than when you speak so I had to change the volume a bunch. Otherwise I enjoyed it 🙂

        Girl it’s okay! Totally a learning curve with it! I just wanted to point it out since I’m not sure if that was something you noticed during editting or not. And it was obviously meant in the nicest way possible 🙂

    JORDAN! This was AMAZING! So much power to you for stepping in front of the camera! Ben is ALL about that life (as you can see from his YouTube) but I am soooo camera shy haha. I loved everything about this and you’re right, I feel like I know you way better now! Also, I’m having serious donut envy. I NEED THOSE. I also loved watching how you did you food shoot! Did you just get your light box on Amazon?
    The only criticism I would have is what Maureen already said about the sound. Other than that, YOU KILLED IT!
    Can’t wait to see more!
