My Very First VLOG: Filmed It In 2008

You guys! I found my very first VLOG… and it is GREEN. I can’t believe that I posted it live KNOWING that I look like a frog. LOL!

Last night, I was monetizing all old videos on my channel. I found out that I had about 500 videos online that were not serving ads which means that I am losing a boat load of money for NO REASON whatsoever. Trying to work SMARTER not HARDER, right? I told my husband that I just have to take the time out to correct the issue. SO, I popped on a movie, opened up my computer, and got to work. Well, one page in… I found this number. My first vlog EVER on YouTube and it was filmed AGES AGO. I’ve been doing this a very long time and that makes me so very happy.

I’ve mentioned this on my YouTube channel several times last week – I feel like I am starting FRESH these days. Yes, I’ve had my account for 11 years. BUT I’ve never thought of YouTube as anything other than an extension of my blog. Now, I’m creating content and molding it specifically for THAT platform. We shall see what happens. I am about 2.5 weeks in and enjoying every second. The views aren’t there yet… but the joy is and that’s all that matters.

    OH my gawd! So crazy how long I’ve been following along with your sites (and that I started working with you guys in 2009! That seems like 30 years ago! haha). And I remember all of the various commenting platforms you tried out as the site went along. (remember the points system to earn prizes/giveaways?!) Thanks for the blast from the past. 🙂
