YOU GOT THAT RIGHT
Omigosh, the time has finally come and I have officially launched my Youtube channel for Dolledupbyj!! I’ve wanted to do this for a really long time and had numerous friends telling me I should, but I just kept holding back. Part of it is I was honestly working crazy amounts, there was no way I could have a channel. Leave it to a global pandemic to give me the kick I needed to say f*** it, I’m starting my Youtube channel!
WHY I STARTED A YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR DOLLEDUPBYJ
My blog is primarily oriented towards beauty and skincare, a bit of lifestyle and fashion, but I also want to be able to show you guys more of my personality and more of what I love. In a single themed blog post or Instagram pic, it’s not always easy to portray what I’m all about and who I am. In a Youtube video, so much more can be covered and I also love to laugh and make other people laugh!
Over the past five years, social media apps have blown up and faded but the one platform that has prevailed and continues to grow more and more is Youtube! When will people stop watching videos? Probably never. Honestly I think joining TikTok during this quarantine phase motivated me more to just start a freaking channel. I mean who knows TikTok could die after quarantine too!
WATCHING MY FAVES INSPIRED ME LATELY
When I’m at home, I love to put my fave Youtube channel videos on while I’m doing house work. In a weird way, it’s like you’re hanging out with a friend but they’re entertaining you. For months and months I was like, “Yea, why can’t that be me too doing this?” I started getting all of these ideas for videos, and I actually started filming test-run, practise videos all the way back in December.
GOTTA START SOMEWHERE
This channel was put off for probably two years. I think what kept me held back at first is I don’t have a perfect marble kitchen, I don’t have a super fancy camera and lighting set up (yet!) and the editing was daunting. I was worried I couldn’t match up to the OG big dogs on the block. The Nikkis, the Jeffrees, the Tatis. Well, so?
Everyone has to start somewhere and lately I started changing my mindset and thinking of all the great things I DO have to offer. Those channels had to hustle for years before they grew too. So here’s to my new channel and I hope you love it.
