YouTube: First YouTube Video Ever!

Hello, my Pretties!

OMG, I finally took the plunge!  I did it.  I recorded and uploaded my very first YouTube video ever!! I'm thrilled beyond words.

I filmed this while sitting in my car waiting for my daughter to get out of school.  Not the greatest place but I felt inspired to do it then and there and I knew if I let the moment pass, who knows when or if I'd ever feel like doing it again.

The more I look at the video, the more I think I look like a toad!  LOL.  Chubby much??  Haha.  So, try and over look that.

Try and over look how nervous I am.  I can't look at the camera! LOL.  My eyes are all over the place.  I say "you guys" a lot.  Ugh.  Haha.  And you can hear the cars and trucks whizzing by.  Hello!  It's a school zone people, slow down!

Any how, here is the video.  I just uploaded it tonight.  I didn't know it would go live and spread the news all over Twitter.  I got a tweet from @LeticiaLaura saying congrats on the vid and she was watching it right then.  I just about died, I swear.  OMG squared!!

I had no idea how to upload the vid or what I had to do.  I just played with it and that's all.  So now it's up for the world to see and critique.  Haha. I have such a thin shell and I'm scared of what will be said.  But it's OK. I faced a fear and that in itself is pure success.

Take a look and let me know what you think.  Constructive criticism is welcome!



And darn, you, YouTube for having the ugliest screen caps to choose from.  LOL.  Sorry, you guys!

And before I bid you good night, I just want to send out a special shout out to my Twitter Tweeties who did nothing but encourage me and support me in my little dream...

Thank you Letty (@LeticiaLaura), Nancy-Lee (@fashionCHICsta), and Amber (@glossflipflops).  You guys did nothing but encourage me today and that is why today was the day that I did this video.  Because of you dolls, I felt like I could do anything.  There is no greater feeling.

I cannot express my gratitude for all the sweet comments left on my YouTube channel and for the new subscribers I got already.  I'll do my best to provide you all with a great channel and I'll work hard not to disappoint you.

Thank you from the bottom, no, thank you from my WHOLE heart for everything.

Luv & Luk,
--L.

    1. My advice to you, DO IT DO IT DO IT! LOL. That's what everyone told me! And I listened, and I'm happy I did. I'm thrilled that you felt like I was talking to you. That was what I was going for. I want to have conversations with you guys. It will be a once sided conversation for the most part with me doing all the talking but that's what I was going for. I want it to be an intimate experience where you feel involved because you are, I'm doing this for you all. My friends! Thank you for all the support :)

    1. Aw, thank you! It wasn't such a great video but I am happy that I did have the courage to do it! It was so hard! LOL. I've been debating whether or not this is for me but I'm not going to give up so easy. But it is terrifying thinking of making a new vid! LOL. Thanks for the support, XXOO.

    1. LOL, I was sooo nervous! It's horrible. I have terrible camera fright and speaking in front of others but it was more like proving a point to myself that if I want to do something bad enough, nothing is impossible. :)
