    In November of last year, I took a leap. I decided to throw my self-consciousness out of the window and start my Youtube channel. A couple of months later, I've become obsessed with making videos and learning how to make them better. I've also been receiving a ton of questions about how to start a Youtube channel for bloggers, so I thought I'd share some of what I've learned with you. I hope my fellow bloggers and lovely readers find this information helpful! Please watch this video and comment below if you have any other questions. SUBSCRIBE to my channel for three videos a week. Thank you in advance.

    1. Be consistent about posting videos

    The best tip I can give you is to get your stuff out there!
    Making good videos takes practice and you’ll only get better if you keep at it. If you tell yourself “this video is not good enough”, “it still needs more editing”, “it doesn’t look like what I envisioned”, then you’ll never publish anything! If you want to get into video you need to have a goal. That may be publishing 1 video a month or publishing 2 videos a week. Set a goal that you know you’ll be able to accomplish, and do your best to stick to it. You may not always feel 100% satisfied with the result, but it’s important that you get your video out there and get started on the next project.

    2. Learn to press the delete button

    What you take out is just as important as what you leave in.
    Once of the things that can kill a potentially good video is too much of the same thing. Just because you shot 10 clips of yourself from slightly different vantage points doesn’t mean you have to include every single piece of footage in your video. Choose the best shots and then delete the rest. If you show too much of the same and the footage starts to feel a bit repetitive, viewers will lose interest and move on to something else. Your job is to keep the viewer engaged, even if it means parting with some of your files.

    3. Stop comparing yourself to others

    There are always going to be channels that are more popular, more experienced, or more skilled than yours. You can either look at these channels for inspiration on how you want to film and what you want to achieve, or you can let it immobilize you with self-doubt and not publish anything, ever.
    Obviously the latter isn’t what you want to have happen. Just remember that every channel out there started in the very same place as you: no subscribers, no views, no audience. Yes, even the channels who have over 1 million subscribers and now make their living exclusively off of YouTube – they too were right were you are today.

    4. Don’t forget to do SEO on your videos

    If you want your videos to actually rank on YouTube (which allows viewers to find you), you need to do a bit more than just upload your content.
    I know so many YouTubers who shoot really great videos, but they don’t help their content rank on YouTube. Filming and editing may be 90% of the work, but it’s the final 10% that’s going to allow people to find you.
    What does this mean?
    a) Give your video a descriptive title.
    You want something that explains exactly what your video is about and gets keywords in the title. “Beginner's Makeup Tutorial is not so great, but “5 minute makeup challenge” might actually get you somewhere.
    b) Use tags.
    Tags are keywords that will help people find your video. Since we’re rolling with the example of “Get Ready with Me: Valentine's Day”, you could use keywords like: grwm  valentines day, get ready, with me, pink, makeup, tutorial. Get the picture?
    c) Write a description.
    Tell me what your video is about. Better yet, tell YouTube what your video is about. That little description box under your video gives you plenty of room to write a search engine-friendly description, so don’t be sparse with your words.

    5. Try not to let negative comments affect you too much

    The thing about social media is that anyone can say whatever they feel like saying and just hide behind a nameless gravatar.
    Creating videos and sharing them with the world puts you in a vulnerable position. You are basically opening yourself up to an audience of complete strangers and giving them a glimpse of your life. It can be a bit scary because you never know who’s watching or what their reactions are going to be, but that’s a chance you take when creating video.

    And those are just a few of the things I’ve learned about making videos and sharing content on YouTube. Now I’d love to hear from you guys and what you think about video.
