Making my First YouTube Video Vlog
Making my First YouTube Video Vlog was an interesting learning experience. What ever you or I need to know someone will have attempted to make a YouTube video explaining it. How to Start a YouTube Channel? Best YouTube camera? There are many YouTube videos detailing exactly the what or how or who of every subject you can imagine. The best resources for YouTube information and help is YouTube itself and its creators videos.
What should my first youtube vlog be about? what to say on your first vlog? Ideas for first youtube vlog? These are all easy enough questions to answer. But the answers don’t fully prepare you for staring down the barrel of even the best YouTube camera with the most amazing idea for a first vlog.
My First YouTube Video:
My First YouTube Vlog was a disastrous failure. I wanted London as the background but my choice of location did not work as well as I had hoped. And talking to a camera in public for the first time is more challenging than it looks. Many lessons in life can only learned from practical experience or learning the hard way, which means failing!
Your first video is essentially a trailer for what is to come. But its also part of the learning process as a content creator in every aspect of YouTube video production. It is unlikely to be your best work as that will only come with practice but neither does it need to be.
And fortunately there is help at hand if you are planning to make your own videos which I wish I knew about before I began.
There is no longer any need to take advice from random YouTube videos when making your first YouTube video vlog. YouTube themselves have made the YouTube Creator academy. Its free of charge for creators of all channel sizes to access. And its on-line content so you can access it any where and at any time.
The YouTube Creator Academy
The creator academy has detailed information in the form of video, text and quizzes. Well structured content makes it a source of education and information for channels of all sizes and experience levels. The acadamy content is very interesting and engaging by being entertaining at the same time as educating. Kick start your channel before even making a video with the getting started lessons. It also has programmes for even the most experienced creators and new technology or features.
I wish I had watched the getting started programme of the YouTube creator Academy before I made my first YouTube video vlog. The academy has the basics covered from naming your channel, making your first videos and even making money. And the Academy has some detailed programmes for specific genres like gaming, beauty and music.
The Academy uses many successful creators to host the video content. This gives valuable insight in a relevant and relateable way even if their content is different to your own.
