I have crappy confidence. I often imagine myself doing videos on YouTube the same way I imagine myself winning the lottery: A nice diversion and nothing more. My self-doubt hisses, “No one cares about your blog, why would they care about your videos?” I’m uncertain if I have an answer.
But, I think it would be fun and interesting. It might bolster my ego a bit to do something flawless and bold, new and “out there”. It wouldn’t be for fame, so why hold back?
The webcam I’ve been eyeing is on sale. Still more than I’ve ever paid for my “writing business” expenses, but better than the $100 that rendered it pure delusional fantasy. I have to be sure I want to do it before I buy it because I don’t have enough income to waste on things, even if I can save up.
People stumbling upon my videos might not be civil towards me. The Internet allows animosity and volatility to flourish with little consequence. A blog allows me to not be “visible” the entire time. And, if I’m honest, a lot of trolls will search out videos where they wouldn’t normally scroll through hundreds of individual blogs. Covering what most people consider boring subjects might help me, though.
Would you get a webcam and make videos? What is stopping you? If you have done it, did you like it? What advice can you give?
