Hey everybody, today is a special blog post because last week I hit my two year anniversary of having my blog! Having this space to share my passions & experiences has truly been amazing, and I’m so thankful for all the support I’ve received from the blogging community! With that being said I’ve decided to step up my blogging game for year 3, so I purchased the Canon G7x mark ii. It has totally made the quality of my photos 10 times better. Also, if you’ve been following my blog for a while you probably have seen my many montage videos that I’ve uploaded to WordPress. That takes us to what this whole post is about, I’m making a Youtube channel to go with my blog! This is gonna make my blog videos have much better quality, and allow you guys to have more of a glimpse into my life! Now let’s get into setting up my youtube channel!
To set up my channel here is what I had to do…
- Create an account
- Make a channel banner & profile pic
- make my first video!
Creating an account is pretty self explanatory. The only aspect that might take some time is choosing what your channel is going to be called, but luckily for me I could use the name of my blog! This meant it was time to choose a channel aesthetic to base my banner & profile pics off of.
Since my fav youtubers are Ellie Thumann, Ava Jules, and Romee Strijd, I defenitly took some inspo from their accounts. Even though they all have totally different accounts the one thing they all have in common is that they have really positive accounts full of good vibes. That’s why I chose to make my banner full of bright colors & things that I love. Here it is, the only problem is as of now Youtube won’t allow me to upload a banner, but once I figure it out this is what it’s gonna be.
The final step is creating my first video! For this I put together 2 of my favorite things. Hanging out with friends & photoshoots. My friends Mia, Manisha, and I all decided to go to a playground to take Insta pictures. Because I already was gonna have my camera along to take the photos, I also just filmed some video clips throughout the day. Usually I would write about everything we did throughout the day, but here is a video of it all instead. This may be a little strange because if you have been reading my blog for a while, or watching my montages you’ve probably never heard my voice lol. So for the first time ever here is what I actually sound like in real life!
Thank you all so so much for reading up to this point. I’m so excited to see what comes next for year 3 of ashlynkatexo.com! Make sure to Subscribe to my YouTube channel if you wanna see more of my life, and sneak peaks at blog posts to come. On another note HAPPY SUMMER, hope y’all are having days full of good vibes with face masks on… but let’s not think about that. Well that’s all I gotta say for now, byeeeee
