Dear Mummy, so far 2018 has seen us push our YouTube channel but we fear we’re neglecting the blog a little. So we wanted to bring you all up to speed with what was happening on the channel that is YouTube!
Flying high after our relatively successful first weekly vlog we are continuing and already on number four! We’re having so much fun collecting snippets of our days via video and then piecing them together on Saturday nights ready for editing and publishing on Sunday nights at 8pm.
I know my folks find it quite therapeutic to do and it’s nice to reflect on what happens to us during the week and chat about it. It makes quite a change from just using images to record in a scrapbook manner, or typing up our notes. I think we’re enjoying watching our videos more than our subscribers at the moment as we’re still a tiny fish in the ocean that is YouTube.
There’s a lot of work involved with making Weekly Vlogs, from the collection of clips, timings and thumbnails, to editing and voice overs. However it is satisfying when it all comes together. My mummy loves making home movies of me growing up and even though this wasn’t part of the plan when we started blogging we’re glad we made the leap. Actually we’re surprised how long it took us to build up the courage and put ourselves out there on YouTube.
So if you’re wondering why we haven’t been posting as much recently it’s because we are over there, on our channel trying to grow and flourish. But by no means have we forgetting our roots, here on our blog which we have nurtured for 4 years. We’ve got some interesting and fun posts coming up in the next couple of weeks, so stay posted.
Love Bella x
If you fancy popping over you our spanking new YouTube channel, we’d love to see more friendly faces across there. Our channel is here: www.youtube.com/c/DearMummyBlog

Great post this! Keep at it with the youtube channel, you’re doing a fantastic job!!
It is difficult finding the time to do both and editing takes such a long time. I look forward to seeing more from both your blog and your channel this year!
I need to do more on my youtube I did at one point but took too much of my time up.
Ekk how exciting to be working on your YouTube! I really hope it goes well for you and starts flying.
I can’t imagine myself making a youtube channel but I do enjoy seeing other bloggers have a go at it and just have fun making their videos. Love this latest video and I can’t wait to see more!
I don’t know how people manage both a YouTube channell and a blog, it must be a lot of hard work so good on you x
Best of luck with the vlogging! 🙂 I’m so camera shy, and my children prefer not to be visible online, so it’s not something we’ve really branched into – but I know it can open so many doors. Have fun! 🙂
I find it hard having a blog or 3. I find my time is split and I am now thinking of just focusing on one thing at a time. I would love to do vlogs but I freeze every time I am being filmed. I bet is is good fun 🙂
We do YouTube too! Will definately go and check you out 🙂
Will have to check your channel out, love that you’re creating content there too!
I do love watching your youtube channel and its nice that you have updated your blog with what you have been up to as well for those who are not following you on youtube.
Congrats on your channel, its great to see that you’re updating it. I love to watch videos online because it gives me a real sense of who the person is and what they’re about xxx
I have a bit of a love hate relationship with my channel. Good for you for keeping it up and creating wonderful memories to look back on
omg youtube! you are so brave for sharing your life on like, you have a very niche apprach within your videos! keep it up. i really enjoyed watching this
I love the idea of doing weekly vlogs but I find the editing bit so stressful and long winded that I gave up. I love having videos to look back on though
Great advice! We are just getting into Youtube so I will take this on board!
Making videos is definitely a wise move and you guys are doing great over on YouTube. Long may it continue
Congrats on the success of your weekly vlog series its great that 2018 has been the year to push your Youtube forward. I hope it really takes off for you x
Your youtube channel and videos look great. I will take a look at your vlogs!
Aww thanks! My mummy is busy editing tonight 🙂
I love a bit of realistic YouTube channels so will have to check yours out.
I knew it must be time consuming to have a channel but didn’t realise how much effort it takes – to you for being able to manage a blog and a YouTube channel.
YouTube is one I’m still working up the courage (and tech know how) to do!!! I must pop and check out your channel #globalblogging
Thanks! It’s proper hard work doing blogging and vlogging. But they do go hand in hand. It’s just another channel for people to get to know us xx
Yes , that can be next on my list I think!!!
Congrats for branching out into Youtube! Good luck with it! #dreamteam
Congrats on the vlog! That sounds like a lot of hard work but so cool. #GlobalBlogging

I LOVE your YouTube channel Dawn. It’s lovely to be able to see what you have been up to and what a brilliant way of having the footage to show back to Isabella in the future. Thanks for joining us for the #DreamTeam xx
Awww thanks for hosting Annette and for your kind comments x
Congrats on your added adventure online. I admire how you have a system in place as that is one of the biggest challenges is my anxiety and then trying to plan. It looks like such fun #dreamlinky
