Hello my little demons!
I wasn’t going to blog today, I was going to have a break and just focus on getting my first video done for my YouTube done.
But… it turns out… I finished it! I uploaded my first YouTube video! So, I might as well blog about it!
Now the whole world will see me… will hear me talk… and I’m open for criticism… (I’ll post the video below).
But first, I want to explain what it is and why I did it.
Most of you should hopefully know by now that I had Selective Mutism as a child, I only recently understood what this was in the last few years, for most of my life I just thought I was odd… that I was alone with this weird secret… and I kept it to myself. But, now I know I’m not alone and I want to talk about it (ahhh!!) and hopefully spread a bit of awareness about it so others, like me, know they’re not alone!
What is Selective Mutism? Well, watch the video to find out! 🙂
I also want to apologise, I filmed this back in December… before Christmas!… and it’s taken me ages to edit and finally upload.
I tried a few different video editing software (open source, because I’m tight!), from OpenShot (it was really glitchy!) to Blender (which kept freezing) and finally found Shotcut which was sooo much better!
But of course, life also got in the way… what with working full time, writing (I will get Rose Garden Sanatorium finished if it’s the last thing I do!) and planning a Route 66 Tour (as well as other things… occasionally doing the washing up for example).
I hope you like it.
And apologies for the bad lighting, camera quality (it was a DSLR with no auto-focus), and the little jumps as I tried to edit out my ‘umm’s. Haha!
Don’t forget to like, reblog, share, comment and/or follow!
I can also start giving you this link too (hint, it’s a YouTube Channel link… I wonder who’s?):
