Blogmas Day 12 | YouTube?!

Welcome to Blogmas Day 12! We're almost half way through the month which is both exciting and frightening! Anyone else counting the days till December 21, 2012? I wonder how that works. Time zone, perhaps? Not sure how I feel about it really. What do you guys think about this "end of the world" day? 

Today's post is going to be a chatty one. I was originally going to post an exciting beauty review, that I know I should get up right away because stores are selling out, but by the time I got home from class and napped, the sun had gone down and I couldn't take any pictures! (<-A run on sentence if you I ever saw one, haha!) I'll put it up tomorrow and instead talk to you guys about something I'm thinking about starting; YouTube! It's around this time last year that I started to watch and subscribe to more and more beauty channels on YouTube. I've always secretly wanted to create my own channel as it seems like a ton of fun! I'm a little rubbish and shy in front of the camera because I like to ramble a lot and go off on tangents that don't pertain to anything, haha! Then there's the whole aspect of my sister and mom hearing me talking to my camera, and thinking I've gone mental.

I've been super inspired by a lot of beauty bloggers who have started up YouTube channels that go hand in hand with their blogs. I really like the idea of incorporating videos into this blog so that I could do more tutorials and they could be better explained and shown. I could tag videos (if tagged, haha!) and I think they're a lot more fun to watch, as well as hauls! I don't plan on abandoning my blog if I do decide to start creating videos. I want them to go hand in hand! I want it to sort of better the whole experience of visiting my blog! I'll still put up pictures of everything because pictures will always so more than I ever could! I don't know, still in the works and I'm giving it some serious thought. I'm thinking of starting off with a sort of fun introduction video and then taking it from there. That way YouTube can get to know me and you lovelies can get to know me just a little bit better as well!

The channel: TheModMermaid (<- click it!) 

There's nothing there as of right now, but soon there will be! Subscribe for now if you want to ;) Give me some sort of moral boost to jump right in, haha!

What are your thoughts on beauty bloggers starting up channels that go hand in hand with their blog? I'd love to hear your opinions! 

P.S. - My finals are done, which means college is out till the end of January, hazzah!!! Okay, goo'bye :)

  3. Subscribed and waiting! :) Haha, it'll be so strange to hear a voice go with the words. I'm still too terrified for life at the thought of going on YouTube, but maybe someday in the new year :) x
