Weekly Digest 3.24.16: New Schedule

Well, I've decided to start a new series here on the blog. I think it so fun and very engaging for my audience to share my personal life with you in my videos, blog posts, and other photos shared on social media. Not only does engaging with you make my role as a content creator more enjoyable and rewarding, but it also provides me with good feedback on what content to create to make my content more enjoyable for you, the reader. Thus, I am starting a new series called Weekly Digest which will recap my current thoughts, plans, and anything I would like to share with you in addition to summarizing my week.

I have really been rethinking my approach towards youtube and blogging. With my general outlook on life, I want to give my all in everything I do. Thus, I do not want to lack in any area and be the best I can be. There will always be room for improvement in every aspect of life, but I have seen so many opportunities for improvement with YouTube and my blog. 

*Note, this post is longer than normal as I have a lot more to talk about than normal with all the changes.

New Schedule 

A schedule is definitely necessary for posts on my Youtube channel and blog, that way y'all will know when to expect new content and check it out. Ideally, I would like to produce new content for you to check out every day. I definitely want to post 2 new videos a week on Monday and Friday, and outfit posts on Tuesday and Saturday. You will see more blog posts than videos, obviously because videos take a lot more time to create as you have to film, edit, export, and then upload. Also, I may have extra blog posts up on Monday and Friday that correspond to the videos being posted. 

Instagram is another entirely different concept. I would like to post once or twice daily, definitely daily depending on how much good content I can produce. I like to use Instagram to let you know about new things I am loving and when new videos and/or blog posts go live. Now, I do not always have good photos to support blog posts and videos, so this does not always happen. I would also like to establish a certain time that I post every day for the best engagement.

I use Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr to also links and photos from videos and blog posts along with photos I use on Instagram. Definitely follow me on all social media to see all aspects of my life and join the fun to stay connected. ;)

GoPro: Explore With Me

I just purchased a GoPro camera last week after such a long time of contemplation on which model to get and whether or not it was worth it. I ended up getting the Hero Silver 4 model, but actually snagged it on sale at BestBuy. In case you're looking into a GoPro, mine came with waterproof housing and additional attachments so I don't have to spend extra $, so that is something to consider when purchasing.

 My whole intent on purchasing this camera was to be able to film Explore With Me videos on my YouTube channel. However, I needed a good quality waterproof camera. In this series, you will come along with me on my adventures! Last summer, I filmed a Week in My Life video and got such good feedback from the footage at Roswell Mill that I was inspired to start this series. I am not sure if I will just put music over exploring clips or insert vlog clips, likely both. Depending on the photos I get, I will also be creating corresponding Explore With Me photos on the blog as I did for Indians Seats and Sweetwater Creek State Park

Spring Break


I am going to Alabama to spend spring break with my best friend, Taylor, this week; driving up sometime between Tuesday-Thursday and coming home Easter Sunday. I plan to film the first installment to the Explore With Me series and a Week in My Life video. We might also film the Best Friend Tag depending on time. Ahhh I am so excited to spend time with Tay!! Taylor used to live a mile away from me and has been my best friend since fifth grade. Sadly, she moved away in 9th grade, but we have remained best friends. Distance will really show you how close you are with someone.

Summer Plans

As many of you know I work as a sales associate at Vineyard Vines, and have for the past year and 7 months. Sadly, I will be leaving this job in early June because I will be away for most of the summer and moving away for college in August. Over the summer, I will be traveling across the east coast and staying with some of my friends whom are fellow YouTubers and bloggers. Some of the possible locations include Birmingham, Raleigh, Lexington, Richmond, Chicago, and VidCon in L.A. I will either be staying with them or they are staying with me in Atlanta. We are definitely open to doing meet-ups this Summer, so if you would like us to, let me know the location and I will see what I can do. 

College

I decided where I was attending college a few weeks ago after I got my scholarship applications back. I am waiting to announce my selected university in a video about my college process and application tips.

Insta Lately

This section of the Weekly Digest series is to provide you with links so that you can shop my Instagram posts. ;)



This YETI rambler from Country Club Prep {email me at xcgal98@gmail.com for 20% off your entire purchase} is one of my latest obsessions. I can put my iced coffee from Dunkin in here at the beginning of the day and somehow it stays cold all day.



This dress from Southern Tide via Country Club Prep is my new favorite for spring + summer, view the full outfit post here! I love that it is so versatile allowing it to be dressed up or down. Fortunately, it's also available in white and tiffany blue. It's perfect for Easter, brunch, any kind of cocktail party, or the white for graduation.

In the Works


Sarajane and I will be filming a part 2 FAQ about working at Vineyard Vines with all the additional questions we have received since the first one, since it got such good feedback. We shall also be filming a spring clothing haul (might have already filmed these videos when you read this). If you don't know who SJ is, she also runs a YouTube channel, check out our previous videos here.

I have videos on How to Style Chacos, Spring Lookbook, and DIY: Green Smoothies also being posted sometime this month or next (hopefully). Comment below any kind of videos or blog posts you want to see. I am open to absolutely anything as I want to create content you want to see. Also, I really enjoy it when you tweet me or tag me on social media because I really do enjoy getting to know you guys.

xx,
Daria
