#VLOGSTARS – November 2017

Hello! Welcome to the November edition of #VLOGSTARS!  It feels like it has come around really quickly this month but I guess the second Thursday has fallen a little earlier than usual.  I hope you had a lovely Halloween and Bonfire Night?  We’ve just got back from a long weekend in Venice so we missed the fireworks this year.

If you’re new to #VLOGSTARS then let me fill you in a bit . . . the linky goes live on the second Thursday of each month and is open for two weeks for you to link up your vlogs on a set theme.  The idea being that it might inspire you to create some fabulous new content for your channel and also introduce you to some other #VLOGSTARS who are chatting about the same things!

In October, Katy and I set the theme for November to be a “PRODUCT REVIEW”. . .  they’re not necessarily my favourite videos to film or watch but they can be really helpful and surprisingly big hitters when it comes to views.  I’ve not actually filmed a proper product review for a little while so I’m going to be sharing my most viewed on with you instead:

So, if you’re super organised and have your PRODUCT REVIEW video ready to go, you can bob your link in down below!  If not, you’ve got a fortnight to get filmed and get linked up.

Over the next couple of weeks Katy and I are looking forward to popping round your vlogs, getting to know you all a bit better and of course sharing them over on twitter where we can!  We’d love it if you could do the same for some of the other people who have linked up too, there’s nothing like spreading the love now is there?  (Don’t forget to use the hashtag #VLOGSTARS)

Next month, from Thursday 14th December, Katy and I want you share a FESTIVE video.  I’m sure some of you will be doing VLOGMAS this year – I loved it last year and will definitely be having another crack.  If not, you can share a festive day out, a Christmas wishlist, some top tips for being organised over the festive season – whatever you fancy!

If you’ve been joining in with #VLOGSTARS for a while then I hope you’ll stick with Katy and I moving forward.  If you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, it’s great to have you!

#VLOGSTARS – October 2017

Hello! Welcome to the October edition of #VLOGSTARS!  How is the Autumn treating you so far?  I’ve finally accepted that it’s here and that summer is done I think – even if I still feel a little cheated!

If you’re new to #VLOGSTARS then let me fill you in a bit . . . the linky goes live on the second Thursday of each month and is open for two weeks for you to link up your vlogs on a set theme.  The idea being that it might inspire you to create some fabulous new content for your channel and also introduce you to some other #VLOGSTARS who are chatting about the same things!

In September, Katy and I set the theme for  October to be a “DAY IN THE LIFE”. . .  One which I was really looking forward to as I’ve fallen out of the habit of filming DITL videos of late.  Unfortunately I’m having massive issues with my editing software this week so haven’t been able to get a new video up.  Instead I’m sharing the last one I filmed – shamefully three months ago!  I think that’s a kick for me to start filming them again as soon as I get my software sorted!!

So, if you’re super organised and have your DAY IN THE LIFE video ready to go, you can bob your link in down below!  If not, you’ve got a fortnight to get filmed and get linked up.

Over the next couple of weeks Katy and I are looking forward to popping round your vlogs, getting to know you all a bit better and of course sharing them over on twitter where we can!  We’d love it if you could do the same for some of the other people who have linked up too, there’s nothing like spreading the love now is there?  (Don’t forget to use the hashtag #VLOGSTARS)

Next month, from Thursday 9th November, Katy and I want you share a PRODUCT REVIEW video.  Although these aren’t always my favourite videos to film they can be surprisingly big hitters when it comes to traffic.  We don’t mind if you link up a review you’ve already done or film a new one – whatever works for you!  It doesn’t have to be something you’ve been sent specifically – just something you love (or hate!) that you think other people might be interested in.

If you’ve been joining in with #VLOGSTARS for a while then I hope you’ll stick with Katy and I moving forward.  If you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, it’s great to have you!

#VLOGSTARS – September 2017

Hello! Welcome to the September edition of #VLOGSTARS!  I hope you’ve had a lovely summer and enjoyed watching last month’s “Would you rather?” videos!

If you’re new to #VLOGSTARS then let me fill you in a bit . . . the linky goes live on the second Thursday of each month and is open for two weeks for you to link up your vlogs on a set theme.  The idea being that it might inspire you to create some fabulous new content for your channel and also introduce you to some other #VLOGSTARS who are chatting about the same things!

In August, Katy and I set the theme for September to be  your “FAVOURITE VIDEO OF ALL TIME”. . .  This was a hard one for me as I’ve have a few that I’m really proud of but this video from our trip to Woodsmoke back in April stands out for a number of reasons – firstly because I was incredibly proud of the editing on this video but also because it’s full of such wonderful memories of our trip!

So, once you’ve picked out your favourite video, you can bob your link in down below!  You’ve got a fortnight to make your choice and get linked up.

Over the next couple of weeks Katy and I are looking forward to popping round your vlogs, getting to know you all a bit better and of course sharing them over on twitter where we can!  We’d love it if you could do the same for some of the other people who have linked up too, there’s nothing like spreading the love now is there?  (Don’t forget to use the hashtag #VLOGSTARS)

Next month, from Thursday 12th October, Katy and I want you share a DAY IN THE LIFE video.  Now this might be something you’ve never done before in which case, be brave – My top tip is to concentrate on short clips that tell the story of your day rather than filming every single thing, people will get bored if it goes on for too long.  If you’re already confident filming DITL videos then this one should be nice and easy for you!

If you’ve been joining in with #VLOGSTARS for a while then I hope you’ll stick with Katy and I moving forward.  If you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, it’s great to have you!

Next month, from Thursday 13th July, Katy and I want you to make us a helpful video.  Everyone is an expert at something and we want you to share your skills with the world –  be it how to apply the perfect winged eye liner, what to pack in your hand luggage on a long haul flight or how to start running – you know the sort of thing we’re talking about.  YouTube loves a helpful post so this could be a great one for finding a wider audience!

If you’ve been joining in with Vlog Stars for a while then I hope you’ll stick with Katy and I moving forward.  If you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, it’s great to have you!

#VLOGSTARS – April 2017

Hello! Welcome to the April edition of Vlog Stars! I think Katy & I are getting into the swing of things about now though I must apologise to those of you who linked up last month with your Guilty Pleasures, I’ve not got round to watching them all yet – things have been a little manic.  My second apology for this month is that I’ve not yet filmed my own video . . . which I know is terrible considering I set them them weeks ago but y’know – life.  I will get it done as soon as the kids are back at school next week!

If you’re new to Vlog Stars then let me fill you in a bit . . . the linky goes live on the second Thursday of each month and is open for two weeks for you to link up your vlogs on a set theme.  The idea being that it might inspire you to create some fabulous new content for your channel and also introduce you to some other Vlog Stars who are chatting about the same things!

#VLOGSTARS – March 2017

Morning! Welcome to the March edition of Vlog Stars!  This is my second month of co-hosting the linky with Katy and I’m hoping to bit more organised this time as I never even got my own video up last month – it was all a bit last minute and well, you know what life’s like!  This month I’m there though, my video is all edited and uploaded and ready for you to watch!

In case you’re not sure what I’m actually talking about let me give you a bit of background information!! Aby & Amy had been running a vlogging linky called Vlog Stars for about 18 months but decided it was time to handover the reins of their Vlog Stars community to allow them to concentrate on other projects.  Enter Katy & I!

Vlog Stars goes live on the second Thursday of each month and is open for two weeks for you to link up your vlogs on a set theme.  The idea being that it might inspire you to create some fabulous new content for your channel and also introduce you to some other Vlog Stars who are chatting about the same things!

In February, Katy and I set the theme for March to be “TOP FIVE GUILTY PLEASURES”  . . . from biscuits in bed to rubbish telly, we want to know!

So, if you’ve been super organised you can bob your link in down below or, if you’re not quite ready for this month’s Vlog Stars – you’ve got a fortnight to get it filmed, edited and linked up – we’ll be waiting for you!

Here’s my TOP FIVE GUILTY PLEASURES – don’t forget to like, comment, subscribe and all that jazz!

 

Over the next couple of weeks Katy and I are looking forward to popping round your vlogs, getting to know you all a bit better and of course sharing them over on twitter where we can!  We’d love it if you could do the same for some of the other people who have linked up too, there’s nothing like spreading the love now is there?  (Don’t forget to use the hashtag #VLOGSTARS)

Next month, from Thursday 13th April, Katy and I want you to tell us about FIVE THINGS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT – are you surgically attached to your phone or completely addicted to an electric tin opener?

If you’ve been joining in with Vlog Stars for a while then I hope you’ll stick with Katy and I moving forward.  If you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, it’s great to have you!

#VLOGSTARS – February 2017

Ok so this is a bit of a different one and something new – or at least new to me!  You might well know that over the last year or so I’ve been concentrating hard on my YouTube channel, in many ways it’s like starting all over again – building subscribers and an engaged audience – but I love it.  I love filming our adventures and sometimes having a bit of a “chat to camera”.

Aby & Amy have been running a vlogging linky called Vlog Stars for about 18 months now but have decided the time has come to handover the reigns of their Vlog Stars community to allow them to concentrate on other projects.  So Katy & I are taking over!

Vlog Stars goes live on the second Thursday of each month and is open for two weeks for you to link up your vlogs on a set theme.  The idea being that it might inspire you to create some fabulous new content for your channel and also introduce you to some other Vlog Stars who are chatting about the same things!

In January, Aby and Amy set a theme for this month of your 9 favourite things:

Food
Drink
Song
Film
Book
Item of clothing
Holiday
Colour
Quote

I haven’t actually got my own video ready yet having only been asked to co-host on Tuesday . . . nothing like the pressure of a deadline!!  I’ll get my video filmed at the weekend and drop that in for you!  So, if like me, you’re not quite ready for this month’s Vlog Stars – you’ve got a fortnight to get it filmed, edited and linked up – we’ll be waiting for you!

Over the next couple of weeks Katy and I are looking forward to popping round your vlogs, getting to know you all a bit better and of course sharing them over on twitter where we can!  We’d love it if you could do the same for some of the other people who have linked up too, there’s nothing like spreading the love now is there?  (Don’t forget to use the hashtag #VLOGSTARS)

Next month, from Thursday 9th March, Katy and I want you to tell us about your TOP FIVE GUILTY PLEASURES – be it rubbish telly or biscuits in bed, we want to know about it!

If you’ve been joining in with Vlog Stars for a while then I hope you’ll stick with Katy and I moving forward.  If you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, it’s great to have you!
