Last weekend, I nervously uploaded a video to YouTube and scheduled it to go live on Saturday morning. My mind was turning over and over with a cavalcade of thoughts and worries: Will people still like it? Is it too long? What if no-one wants to watch it? Have I made a huge mistake?
I wasn’t even this worried when I uploaded my first ever sewing vlog just over a year ago!

Once upon a time, I made a spur of the moment decision to record a video about vintage sewing patterns and upload it to YouTube. I’d only just discovered the YouTube sewing community the day before and I’d spent the better part of a day watching video after video and subscribing to every sewing vlogger I could find.
