I finally figured out the whole video situation. I spent way too many hours trying to figure out why there was no storage left on my computer but turns out the rendered files were taking up pretty much all of the space. After clearing those out, the videos uploaded perfectly.
I wanted to do something fun this week and change my recap post up a bit. This week was perfect for that because I had no plans, it was going to be a low-key week, and I could spend some time figuring out how to “vlog.” It’s funny because as you watch each video, they start awful, and then get a little better. I think I’m getting the hang of this. I’m hoping to have it all figured out in no time! All pointers are welcome. The first couple of days are pretty bad to watch, but I finally learned how to mess with the volume and sound effects. The next time I vlog, I promise it’ll be better!
Each day of last week was Vlogged, and I added some extra photos with links and recipes as well. I hope you enjoy my low-key week! It’s so important to give yourself a calm week now and then. Overfilling your week with events (even if they are fun) and workouts and drain you. This was my “off” week. I’ll have to video blog a normal week next time.
