I was invited to join a week-long daily vlog challenge by Kirsty Dee, instant eek, nerves and excitement but I joined because I’ve been banging on about Youtube and thought it’d be good to dive in at the deep end.
So, I thought it would be a great idea to do a roundup of the videos I recorded for the daily vlog challenge. But, also share some tips that I think could help some of you that would also like to have a go at a challenge or start a YouTube channel. Read more
