For as long as I’ve been creating content, I’ve always had one particular struggle, and I’m curious to see if this affects anyone else.The problem is that I’m a massive perfectionist. I have an obsessive need to make everything I produce a certain standard, and usually end up feeling drained and exhausted as a result. This can make producing regular content very difficult as tasks take much longer than they probably should.
I never thought I'd be writing a post like this, because from the age of 22 my dream was to be a "YouTuber". But I just don't love YouTube anymore. Back in 2012, I had just started a Masters Degree, and was overwhelmed with stress and anxiety. YouTube was (or at least felt like) a safe place for me to escape.
When I was invited to the #VikingArtyParty I immediately accepted the invitation - I'm a creative person at heart and I can't say no to an afternoon of crafts.There's nothing I love more than attending a blogging event. It's a great opportunity to meet other bloggers, and people who look vaguely familiar because I stalk them on Twitter. Whatever happens, it's always a fun day.
On February 13th, it was my two year anniversary on YouTube. I've certainly come a long way since my very first video (which is over here if you fancy a laugh). I remember being really nervous and talking to a camera just seemed unnatural, and editing took days... but I'm glad I persevered.
