I would like to announce that starting on May 1st I will be creating and uploading one BookTube video every single day for the entire month of May! This is the Video-A-Day challenge that I’ve noticed has been going around on YouTube with a few channels, so I decided to give it a go and see how things turn out. There are three main reasons that I wanted to participate in this crazy-ambitious challenge!
Firstly, as I mentioned above, I was inspired by a few fellow YouTubers who’ve been doing the challenge and enjoying themselves with it quite a bit.
Secondly, I wanted to challenge myself creatively as a content creator and see what sorts of things I could come up with.
Lastly, and this is the most relevant reason for my doing this challenge: May is a terrible month for me. I have had a lot of traumatic experiences occur in May, and every year it’s a huge emotional and psychological struggle to get through the month. I spent most of the month, tucked away in the corners of my room because my anxiety and paranoia (thank you memory triggers) make it virtually impossible for me to be able to escape. I’m hoping that this challenge will help me with coping and staying distracted as well, which will help me with my anxiety. By having something like this to focus on, my mind and body will be too busy to think about those inherent triggers that come up.
That’s it! If any of you are on YouTube, please join me on this wacky expedition! If you follow my channel already, I wanted to give you a head’s up as to what I was planning so you wouldn’t feel spammed the fuck out. 🙂
Happy reading and a happy weekend to you all!
