D.C.’s First Vlogger? My Take on Becoming a Youtube Creative

WE DID IT!

Our first vlog has been posted and is now live on our YouTube channel!

This has been something on my mind for a while and I have finally gained enough courage to do this. For the last two years, I have slowly stopped watching network television and have gravitated more towards online streaming and YouTube for my media entertainment. There are a couple of channels I have been watching religiously everyday for over a year, and I am consistently fascinated by their courage to share their lives online with strangers while making it look effortless. And I figured, if they can do it, why can’t I?

Then I remembered that the idea of starting my channel alone gave me serious anxiety and was causing me to never start it. It was actually my boyfriend who encouraged the process by suggesting that he be apart of it! And with that we decided to create CD’s Lives (See these Lives)! Yep, we have decided to vlog our adventures each week and share them with you all! While putting yourself out there to the world is nerve racking (internet trolls), it is nice to have home videos to look back on in the future- that will be my (our) silver lining.

From the bit of researching I was able to do online, I did not find many vloggers within the DC area or any for that matter. While there are plenty bloggers I found few that have tapped in the the video entertainment industry (YouTube)- so this could be a chance to start a new wave of creatives in the District.

I want to make a personal note to say that creating this channel isn’t for fame, for the money, but rather another outlet for expression that we both will create together. We both hold corporate jobs that are honestly not our passions, but with consistency and determination, I have no doubt we can make something out of this to free ourselves spiritually and if its right, financially!

Our first video IS PUBLIC and I encourage each of you to subscribe to our channel, CD’s Lives by clicking here. Don’t forget to hit the bell after subscribing to be notified when new videos are posted and be sure to like and comment!
