Getting Podcasty

The Sew Old Fashioned Podcast

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.

I had no idea I’d be sitting here a year later, still uploading those videos, with over 1,200 people subscribed to my channel. It’s still a little surreal, to be honest!

A Merry Vlogmas to all!

Thank-you, you may be saying, but what on earth is Vlogmas? Essentially, Vlogmas is a shared act of questionable sanity that occurs every December where YouTubers across the world try to make a video every day until Christmas.

I’m glad I did take part because even though it was a lot of work, it was also a lot of fun and I was certainly feeling more festive than I normally do. That’s what happens when you spend a lot of time wearing a sparkly santa hat while drinking tea out of your ridiculous Christmas mug.

What did I get up to Vlogmas? Read on for a link to the entire set of videos for 2017. Continue reading
