First YouTube video

Hola. This post is about my first YouTube video.

YouTube started back in 2005 and since then I have watched many music, makeup, and cat videos. This time around, I added one more video to their library. The thought of recording myself, and being out there scared me a bit.

Once I acknowledge this uncomfortable feeling, I knew I had to push myself and do it. Even if it is just one video, but I had to get out of my comfort zone. Pushing yourself to do something that you are not used to doing is good for you, it causes us to grown.

I spent a couple of hours watching videos about making videos, and after those hours I had a list going in my mind about the things I would need to make a great video.

  • lighting
  • camera
  • microphone
  • music
  • animations
  • video editing software

A makeup artist and hair stylist 🙂

And the list can continue to grow, but I had to record it and publish it since by doing them would be the only way I would really know how they work.

My goal for the series of videos is to practice the introvert in me to come out and speak to an audience. The videos are a vlog on how I will be developing and learning to code so I can make this tool (web application) that I have been wanting to make.

The first video explains a little bit of my background and why I want to learn how to code. I hope that after many videos they will be better, and I will not get those butterflies in my stomach before I click Publish.
