Feedback please: new youtube channel

First of all I don’t know what I’m doing with or on youtube. πŸ˜€

However, I created a clip for my new youtube channel and I want you to tell me how it sounds, if you can hear it properly, and whether or not this is a good idea.

YouTube channel creation and management is confusing to me, and I don’t know if I have what it takes to do this regularly, but there’s only one way to find out. So I’m doing it.

Note. I am still stuck at home (probably forever) due to this endless pandemic lockdown here in Toronto so I’m just trying to switch things up a little by exploring new things and pushing my boundaries.

Feedback is very much appreciated, if you’re so inclined.

  1. I did a video a while ago showing how to do some aviation related maths – I ended up dangling a cheap webcam over the desk – I wonder if you could do something similar ? A to down shot of the cards and your hands?

  2. Hola! I did like the background and the tulips. I think they add a lot to the video, as if we were invited to your house…Maybe it is because I am nosy πŸ™‚ The video looks very good to me!

  3. You’ve already gotten the speak up, so I won’t repeat… except I sorta did huh?πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Good for you for giving it a go. Being on camera is really difficult for a lot of people.
    Have Fun with it! Let your playful side outπŸ˜‰πŸ’Œ

    1. I should do a whole thing about my son’s critiquing my voice… lol

      This is a small house. The kids are schooling online just below me. The husband teaches, also downstairs. If I start talking too loudly, they will come up here and yell at me. (Which is funny since they accuse me of yelling too much).

      But. Noted. πŸ˜›

      PS Up until I turned 50 I rarely took pictures of myself, and NEVER filmed myself. I have learned a few things since then. πŸ˜‰

  4. While I’m not a huge YouTuber, I think it’s great you’re stretching your platforms. The audio was clear, your background setting is good…. though I might turn the camera a little to the right so we don’t see the end of your cabinets. My only advice if you’re dealing tarot is to try and show the cards as they’re laid. Naturally I have no earthly idea how to do that…

  5. Good luck with the tarot project and the video turned out great. Having a youtube channel someday is on my own bucket list too and it’s not always easy to unlock creativity. Hope it helps you and I’m a hermit too.

  6. I like the change up every so often. Keeps things interesting. I agree with those who suggest a backdrop. Don’t want it to be distracting, but I’m not keen on completely white walls either…jeez that’s picky isn’t it! I think using YouTube lends itself to a lot of possibilities and adds interest so keep playing with it.

    1. I’m rethinking about my background. Honestly, I wasn’t concerned with it knowing none of the family was in this part of the house at the time…but in future I may just point the laptop at something a bit more neutral.

      I was mostly testing to see how to upload it, where to put it (channel creation etc), and what I sounded like. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the tips and the feedback!

  7. Yay you!
    Advice (because you asked for it): point the camera down, so we can see you shuffling and pulling the cards.

    Speak up a little bit?

    Also, the hermit is an accurate card for being stuck in quarantine, right?

    1. Almost no one I’ve watched let’s people see them shuffling the cards. I wonder why that is?

      I will do a whole thing about the “speaking up” part because my darling son has already critiqued me on that. πŸ™„πŸ˜‰

      Thank you. Appreciate the feedback. Noted.

  8. Oddly enough, you sound fairly close to what I would have imagined you sound like.

    As a possibility of avoiding any embarrassing backgrounds (and to save the labor,) perhaps have a sheet or something as a background. This also allows you to be the focus of the video rather than me wondering where you got your sofa.

    No judgement, but I wouldn’t be fussing with Tarot Cards. Too much like a Ouji Board in my mind and nothing good can come from opening up the potential for problems to cross your threshold. I bet a good aimless mosey outside could do the trick instead.

    But you’re a good writer, I have faith in you. If Stella can get her groove back so can you.

    1. The tarots are a tool and I need a distraction BECAUSE I’VE BEEN IN LOCKDOWN FOR 15 MONTHS. πŸ™„ And will be for another one, they just announced. 😭

      Sorry didn’t mean to yell at you.

      I’ll probably switch the laptop around to have a wall behind.

      Thanks for the feedback!


    1. Laptop. Thank you kindly for the feedback. When I listened to it in my phone I thought there was too much background noise.

      And yes my phone notification was alerting me of a message that came in, that was the bell. πŸ˜€ I usually have it muted but must have forgotten to turn it off… πŸ™„

  9. I wish you well with your project. I don’t do much with YouTube, so I have no advice about how to do anything there. Moving pictures aren’t my jam. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

      1. I may sound more negative about YouTube than I am, actually. I don’t hate on it, just don’t lean toward it. Like what I want will ever influence society! πŸ€“
