What I’ve Been Up To [7]: Happy Changes

What I've Been Up To

It’s been a while since I last did one of these “what I’ve been up to” posts and it’s also been relatively quiet around here, so I figured I’d catch you all up on my life and everything that’s been going on!

First of all, as I mentioned in this post, I started a YouTube channel a few months ago and I’ve been kind of busy with that. At the moment, that channel’s called Books Baking and Vlogging, which I thought was a nice variation on my blog name. However, I think I’ll be changing the name soon because it turns out that I don’t really like making baking videos.

I’m a YouTuber Now! (but also still a blogger)

That’s right, I have joined the land of YouTube! I contemplated starting a YouTube channel for a really long time and on Tuesday I finally filmed my very first video after planning on doing so for a few weeks but each time chickening out for various reasons. It was quite exciting and a little bit scary. I talk all about it in the video, so I won’t just rehash all of that right here.

Just to clarify: me starting a YouTube channel doesn’t mean I’m going to abandon my blog: I plan on doing both because I still love blogging a lot too. It just felt like I needed a new challenge – I’ve been doing this blogging thing for over five years already, after all. YouTube seems like a fun way to try something new and develop some new skills, so I’m giving it a try! As for content, it’s going to be mainly books and hopefully some baking at some point too.

I don’t know yet whether I’m going to post all of my videos on here as well, so if you’d like to see more of them, I’d love it if you subscribed to my channel! I’m excited for you guys to see the video and I’d love to know what you think, so please leave a comment, if you like!

Anyway, enough intro: here’s my very first YouTube video!

Five of My Favourite Bookish Social Media Accounts

I don’t know about all you other bloggers out there, but I spend most of my time on the internet. Okay, perhaps not most of my time (I sleep a lot too). It’s pretty safe to say that I spend a lot (too much?) of my time online, though. The possibilities are endless, especially now that I’ve discovered the bookish community out there. There are so many cool Instagram accounts and YouTube channels and what not, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you today!

PeruseProjectFirst up is a YouTube channel that I’ve only discovered about two weeks ago, even though it’s a pretty big channel with almost 100k subscribers. I’m talking about PeruseProject by the lovely Regan. She does the usual like book hauls, tags and monthly wrap ups, but she also has some really cool themed videos like “Rainy Day Book Recommendations” among others. I mainly just love the way she talks about books quite in depth without giving any of the plot away and her enthusiasm for reading. I’d definitely recommend paying her channel a visit if you haven’t yet!
