Review of 2018 – Part 1

As 2019 is approaching, it feels right to look back at the past year.

One of my biggest achievements, aside from this blog, is starting my YouTube channel.

I have created videos of days out with my husband, which I hope people have enjoyed watching as much as I’ve enjoyed making them.

I have become an avid YouTube viewer as well, both for relaxation and to study the content in the hopes of picking up some good tips and learning new techniques.

We live hundreds of miles away from our family, so my videos helped me show them around this part of the country.

The whole process of recording the video, taking photos, editing, adding music and the voiceover, has been so enjoyable and totally absorbing. The only disappointment for me was not being able to grow my subscribers.

I desperately wanted to get more than 100 subs so that I could get a custom URL. That prompted me to look at alternative ways to get that prize, and I found a temporary solution!

My goals for 2019

  1. Grow my channel and get a custom URL
  2. Get more confident talking to camera
  3. Make more vlogs

So pleeeeeease, if you haven’t already watched one of my videos, go and take a look at my channel and become a subscriber! It would give me such a boost to be able to name my channel. I would feel like a proper YouTuber then!!

Thank you 😊

    I’m wayyyy too scared to do YouTube myself, but I love your videos! I just subscribed. I absolutely loved “Woodland Walk”, so peaceful!💕

  3. Marie I think your YouTube channel shows that you’ve put a lot of work into it. The music, and the cutscenes and stuff, even your narrative voice is wonderful!!! I LOVE your voice!!! I tried editing a video for my previous bosses and (maybe it was the computer I was on?) But I had much difficulty with it, so I admire you and your efforts with your Youtube Channel! I just subscribed so you are almost halfway there to 100 🙂

  4. I love that part of your reason for making this channel was to show your family where you are and what is around you. They may be 100 miles away but I am thousands of miles away and these videos have made me feel like I am right there with ya! And I LOVE your accent haha!! I thought I was already subscribed and I am sorry I wasn’t! Just subscribed with two accounts so now you are two closer to 100!!<3

  5. Marie I absolutely love your channel and I am so in awe of your editing skills! I wish I could make videos like yours but I am so hopeless at it. Also your voice is so amazing, we’ve been over this. I’m sorry you didn’t reach your goal, I feel like youtube is so hard to grow on and I admire you for any amount of subscribers you have! I would probably only have 1 hahaha. All the love xx

    1. Thank you so much for such a lovely comment. You would be great on YouTube I am sure! I am definitely going to look into making podcasts, even if they are me just reading out my blog posts haha!
