Oh man, guys. You know…just…One Time, man.
I think what kept me going with my YouTube channel is that I have no huge goals for lesliefoundhergrail to be successful. I get to try out stuff I write, I get to be friends with people all over the world, and I get to apply stuff from my vlog life to my real life and vice versa. The laid back nature has kept me from burning out after six years of vlogging.
But then I always had this itch of trying to invigorate public storytelling to a YouTube audience through collaboration. For years I tried to figure out what that really meant for me, and I worked on different things with different people. But it was never anything that clicked…until One Time.
What’s ridiculous about that is that I stumbled on this idea. I originally collected footage for the first video without knowing what I was gonna do with it. Funny how those things happen. And I didn’t know if anyone was gonna like or if people were just gonna “kiiiiiiinda get it but I could take it or leave it”. But people liked it. So that’s a thing.
So, um, it’s different now but a good different. I really want this series to work for a long time and show different perspectives and storytelling types and promote other videomakers. I guess yeah, I want it to be successful. I think there’s potential there for something bigger than me.
So thank you for watching it. I might bug you guys to watch One Time more than my other videos because I’m now heading a project that’s a curated group effort. It’s not just me. But I think you’re okay with it?
(the second episode of One Time is here blah sorry okay)
