As the title suggest, I started a BookTube channel!
Back in September, I wrote a post called “To BookTube or Not to BookTube?” where I basically talked about how I was on the fence about starting a BookTube channel. Annalee over at Buttons Book Reviews suggested I make a video and see what happens. It was the push I needed to be like, “Fuck it, let’s just do this thing.”
I posted my first video on September 30th (The BookTube Newbie Tag, in case you were wondering). I had a blast making the video and received some positive response. The BookTube community, like the Book Blogger community, is super friendly and nice. In real life I’m a ridiculous human being, so I was worried that I would get some hate for being super weird. Definitely not the case at all.
Since that first video I have made a few more when I have had the time. October was an extremely busy month for me, so it was hard to manage on top of everything else but doable. The fact that it was doable in the busiest of months for me, just gave me the confidence to keep doing it. I really enjoy making videos. It’s a passion I have that I have not been able to express in a while, so it’s been super fun just making these videos.
Now you’re probably curious as to what that means for this blog. Well, I don’t plan on abandoning it, so if you’re a fan of my blog posts, I will still be making them. I really enjoy writing Book Reviews and being a part of the blogger community. I really want the content on my channel to compliment the content on my blog. That way if you follow both, you won’t get the same content in different formats.
My blog will mostly focus on book reviews. Not only do I enjoy writing book reviews and discussions, but I think I am able to critique books more effectively in this format. I will also still be doing tags, Top Ten Lists, and discussion posts (when I can think of them). I may also do posts that expand on videos I create.
On my channel you’ll find my TBRs, wrap-ups, book hauls, and writing vlogs. Plus other random videos that I come up with. I’m still experimenting with this whole BookTube channel thing and trying to figure out what works best.
Anyway, the point of this post was to tell you guys what I have been up to for the past two months and let you know about some changes that I will be making on this blog. If you would like to check out any of my videos, I am at Book to the Becky on YouTube.
Talk to you guys in another post soon!
