The 10 Truth’s Behind Filming a YouTube Video!

YouTube the home to entertainment, whatever it is you’re into its on there. And if you are a YouTuber and are doing well, you can make a hella lot of dollar! But is it really that easy and straight forward?!

I myself have my own YouTube channel with my whopping 30 subscribers (it’s a work in progress lol) .. truth is, YouTube Channels are hard frickin work. Especially when you’re trying to get yourself out there. It’s SO easy to lose motivation (like I do every other month or so!) I’m working on it…..

Here’s what really goes down behind filming a YouTube video.

1. 9 our of 10 times your battery always runs out half way through on your camera. You was right in the flow, doing your thang & bam – shows over. You then have to sit & wait for it to re-charge & get yourself back into the same vibe you was in before.

2. It takes forever to get the right lighting…even with accessories, ring lights etc, lighting is a b*tch! You think you’ve got it & then out of no where you resemble Casper, it goes so bright you are now invisible. On the flip side all lighting suddenly dims and you need a candle to see yourself. There is no in between.

3. You get interrupted by people swanning into your room, whilst your mid filming. Completely throwing you off what you are doing. That or world war 3 starts erupting down stairs…usually all because someone didn’t wash up there plate. (Just my house then?)

4. You forget what your even doing…mind blanks happen OFTEN. Like, what am I even doing here? Why is my camera set up? What was I saying? WHERE AM I?!

5. When you finallyyyyy get the filming process completed, you then have to endure the pain of importing them to your computer & don’t be fooled even the best computers are on the slower side of life. For real.

6. Once imported you then have the task of editing, cutting & merging it all together. Now I do actually love this part but best believe it will also be the death of me. Do you no how painful it becomes listening to your own voice 30000000 times over?! You end up hating what you’ve recorded because you’ve watched it that many times, that if they was actual real views you would probably be knee’s deep in pound notes right now.

7. After spending half of your life getting it all pieced together you then have another exporting process & now have to save the video…which again is on the slower side of life.

8. Finally exported, another upload is needed (can you see a pattern here?) this time it’s gotta actually get onto Your Channel. Now when I say this is THE LONGEST process ever I am not joking! Lately my videos have taken a WHOLE DAY to upload!! By the time my video has actually uploaded I have officially aged by 10 years.

9. Once 10 years have passed & its finally on your channel…you can get your link & start sharing…..advertising it over ever single one of your social media sites. Over & over & over again.

10. You end up so exhausted from the long ass process, you need a break from doing another one. But the break turns into 3 months & you wonder why you have no more subscribers than the month before.

Creating content, actually filming & having the time to edit & endure the uploading/exporting process honestly isn’t easy work. I have a lot of respect (& jealousy) for those who keep their YouTube Channels flowing & growing! I really am going to try my best this year to focus & grow my channel (if I can refrain from throwing my camera & laptop out of the window!)

It’s a work in progress….a progress that I hope does keep progressing. So stay tuned & why not head over and come subscribe to My Channel 🙃 to watch the journey?

Ps! If you have your own YouTube channel & have any tips & tricks show your girl some love & hit me up! Or if you can relate to these struggles let me know, so I don’t feel alone😆

Hello lovely's thanks for stumbling by. If you are a returning reader, thanks for your continuous loving. If you are new here, welcome to the show (and again, thanks for the love) So you are probably on this page to find out the nitty & gritty of me eh? As much as I would love to brag that I am this really cool chick who occasionally fire breathes on the weekends for fun, that would be an awful not even funny lie.  Gosh, introductions- they are kinda awkward huh? No pressure.  My name is Leanne Lilly (more often than not, known and addressed as 'Lil') I am a 25 year old woman on a mission to sprinkle positivity, empowerment, fun and realness onto my fellow human beings.  I have a passion for writing and a love of over sharing with my straight up sally attitude, I embrace my voice & have no fear of sharing it. I guess I have just always had a thing for giving my opinion & expressing my advice. I am an over sensitive, big-hearted, cry baby who is majorly compassionate, understanding and giving, but who also has daily breakdowns, mood swings, & take's no shit. But I will always speak my truth. I suppose there is many aspects to this personality.  With that said it will be no suprise that this is a Mish-Mash Life Style Blog. A Blog that is home to everything and everything. You wouldn't find me in a specific genre, because I do not think you could tie my life down (let alone my personality) to one genre. This is just a Diary if you like of a truth-speaking, real talking girl. It follows my life, my feelings, my funny side (yes, I find myself funny) and all the shit that goes down in-between. And you will probably find a bit of TMI. Often. Sorry in advance.  Disclaimer: I am NOT a grammar goddess, so don't get all grammar police on my ass. (Pretty please) P.s... When I was 7 Year's old, I asked my mum what she thought I would be when I was older "A writer or something to do with writing" - I was FUMING. I wanted to be a pop star. Years on, here I am passionately writing away & loving it. Moral of the story: Mum's are always right.
