Oh, hello there! This past weekend was a super exciting one for me, and I’m sure you know why! After all the hype and suspense, I finally put out my very first YouTube video!
The Boho Berry YouTube Channel is something that I have wanted to start for some time now. There have been so many times that I thought a video of some sort would really compliment my blog content, but honestly I was pretty terrified to put my face on camera!
I finally decided to get over myself and just go for it! Filming and editing my first YouTube video was both fun and stressful. For someone who didn’t know the first thing about editing video, I think I did pretty well though! I’ve still got a huge learning curve ahead of me but I’m excited to learn and grow :)
Although I love the way my first video turned out, there was a little clip that I edited out for time’s sake. This little clip haunted me for the past couple of days, and I just knew that I had to share it with you! It’s all about my huge love and appreciation for the planner community :) And yes, I actually teared up a bit during filming! ;)
If you love what you’re seeing on my YouTube channel so far, I’d love for you to subscribe! I’ll be uploading new content every Friday. You can expect the same type of content that you see here on the blog every week… a good mix of motivation, projects, book reviews, goal-setting, and of course all things bullet journal, and planning :)
With the addition of YouTube content to my already hectic schedule, I’ve got some schedule changes coming up starting next week. One of the most important factors when deciding if I could even handle starting a YouTube channel was wether I would be able to continue pumping out quality content here on the blog as well.
With that in mind, I sat down and really did some soul-searching to determine both what was feasible and what I want Boho Berry to grow into over the next few months. I spent nearly all day on this little project yesterday, and came up with the following posting schedule:
Monday & Wednesday: Regular Blog Posts
These will be what you’re already used to seeing here on the blog :)
Friday: New YouTube Video + Corresponding Blog Post
New YouTube videos will be uploaded every Friday! I’ll be writing up a corresponding blog post to go with each video. The idea here is to dive deeper into the content, share some show notes, and even some content upgrades like free printables and worksheets to go along with my videos.
*Every other Friday: Tribe Newsletter
Are you a Boho Berry Tribe Member yet? If not, you can subscribe here :) I send out a newsletter every other Friday. It’s basically a re-cap of what’s been going on over on the Boho Berry Blog, as well as coupons and discount codes unique to my friends (that’s YOU!).
I even include some awesome free coloring page designs in every single newsletter!
Sunday: Sunday Review
This one is a pretty huge change. You’ve probably grown used to my Weekend Blog Love Series every Saturday. The idea behind Weekend Blog Love was to spread the love to other bloggers that are doing amazing things all over the internet! While I still love this idea, I’ve also been adding in a weekly review and have found that the title doesn’t always suit the content.
With that in mind, I decided to move this series to Sundays and change the name to “Sunday Review”. Each week, I’ll be walking you through my weekly review that I conduct in my Bullet Journal. This is something new that I’ll be doing each week: going over what went well, what I can improve, and looking forward to the week ahead.
Don’t worry though, I’ll still be including links to my favorite reads at the end of my Sunday posts :)
That’s all I have for you today! There are a lot of positive changes and fun things coming soon, and I’m so happy that you’re along for the ride!
