YouTube and Accountability

Hey, folks!

Did you know I have a YouTube channel? I have a YouTube channel! I tried to do Vlogmas this past year, but goodness did I underestimate how much work goes into making videos. Particularly since the videos I wanted to make were less vlog-y and more informational, which requires research and scripting and more time than I had on my hands. Maybe someday I’ll get back to them, I had some really interesting ideas!

For now I’ve decided to use my vlogs as a form of accountability. I am someone who has a hard time sticking to things unless I’m prompted or encouraged. It’s so much easier to give excuses like “Eh, I don’t have enough time right now” or “I’ll do it later, I’ve got plenty of time tomorrow” and instead spend my time on video games and Twitter. Unfortunately, all my friends and my dear husband have said they are also terrible at accountability, so I can’t ask them to hold me to my goals. So, I’m turning to the internet!

The knowledge of how many subscribers I have will be really helpful, I think, because I have a visual reminder of how many people are interested in and looking forward to my videos. Having people depending on me is a huge motivator. I hate letting people down! So, I’ve decided to use this as my means of accountability. Each Friday, I’ll film myself talking about what I’ve accomplished that week, how I think I did, how I can improve, what I struggled with, and what my goals are for the next week. In the future, I’m planning on sharing some art process videos, art supply reviews, and lots of other artsy things as well! I’m excited, I think this will be fun.

Anyways, here’s the video!

Thanks for reading, and for watching! Have a great day, folks!
