My YouTube Journey - so far!

Hey hey hey lovelies!

So today I just wanted to share with you my excitement and pride in something that I have been working on for a few months now, and that is, my YouTube channel! You can check it out HERE

Today I reached 130 subscribers! That's crazy for me! I can't believe that people watch my videos, let alone 130 of them find my content good enough for them to subscribe! That is awesome and has put the biggest smile on my face!

For a few months, up until the end of April, very few people I know personally knew of my channel. It was always something I had wanted to do and I had finally found the courage to upload and I didn't want it all to go to waste by getting negative comments or hate from those I knew. And so I kept it on the down low. However, people started finding out about my channel through my blog whether that was reading through it or googling it to be able to vote for it (In an old competition I entered)

At first I felt so embarrassed and didn't want to face the reactions that I was sure to be getting from them but they were quite supportive and nice about it! Some even joked around saying that I could become YouTube famous one day!

Anyway it is an achievement in my books!
What have you all been up to lately? Have you guys achieved anything you are proud of?
I always to hear from my followers!!

Lots of love, Karine xx

    Well done Karine!!
    So so proud of you :-D

    You are way too lovable and amazing to not be supported!! :)

    Love You! :) xoxo

  2. Do you know what, I have exactly the same problem. I would love to start a YouTube channel but can't for the fear of what those around me will have to say! This is exactly why I wrote about your channel on my post; I find you such a courageous inspiration in the YouTubing world and I am so glad people around you have been supportive. 130 subscribers! That is amazeballs! Congratulations. Love the revamp of your blog site also, cute social media links. Rosemary x

  3. Oh rosemary you are such a sweetheart! I am breaking out of my comfort zone and doing things I love doing. It is no longer about what people think of me, rather than my happiness and doing things for myself! So with that came that little confidence that got me started! Do not give up on that YouTube channel idea, once you are confident enough and realize that it doesn't matter what others think, then you will be able to do it just like I did! I definitely would subscribe to your channel so you have a supporter here :)
    Thank you so much lovely!! xxx

  4. Congrats on the milestone! I find videos a ton of a lot harder than posts, so major props to you for carrying through with making vids. There's always some tic or squeak that I make that I don't realize until I'm editing the whole thing. Maybe I should stick to blog posts :P



Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post and for commenting! I read and will reply to every single one! Please leave a link to your blog and I will be sure to check it out as well! :) xx
