I’m Moving to YouTube Starting January 1st!

Hey everyone! I’ve been keeping a BIG SECRET and I’m so excited to tell you more about it! I’ve been considering this for a while and with a lot of research and thinking I’ve decided to commit to starting a YouTube channel that is going to feature a lot of fun things I wouldn’t normally be able to put on my blog!

First, I want to take a moment to thank you guys and reassure you that this blog isn’t going anywhere. It’s been fun and during these two years, this blog has created structure and a place for my creativity to live. I will still be posting on here, but while I’ll be posting will probably be videos or supplemental recipes to what I’ll be featuring on my YouTube!

Why the Change?: Well, 2020 has been really difficult. I committed to blogging three times a week and then COVID happened and all of my plans for parties and outings went out the window! I really had to scramble for content and not all of the posts I wrote I was really happy with. That’s a terrible feeling for a content maker to have. I want to deliver high quality and fun things to all of you!

I also didn’t feel like this blog was very friendly. The truth is, you can’t make mistakes with blogs. You have to look like you know what you’re doing. I can’t tell you how the dish I was supposed to show you guys burnt in the oven. I can’t talk about how I the DIY I made was actually not that great. I can’t really show you all the realness of my life which was partly why I started this blog in the first place.

What Can You Expect?: You can expect all of the things you enjoyed here, only in the form of a video. Instead of a post about nails, I’m going to be doing a video! Instead of a recipe with pictures, I’ll be showing you how to make it. Instead of seeing pictures of where I’ve been in Boston or on trips YOU WILL BE ABLE TO COME ALONG WITH ME through the videos! I’ll also be much easier to interact with through YouTube comments! You’ll be able to see when my “Pinterest Fails” and funny moments from my life and what I’m doing to invite more fun and health into my life!

I’ll be posting on Mondays and Fridays. Monday’s will be all about slice of life things, nail videos, unboxing videos, my workout and weight loss journey, and fun things I’m doing in Boston or in New England. Friday will continue to be Foodie Friday. That means these videos will be all about new recipes, grocery hauls, what I’ve eaten in a day or a week, and all things kitchen and food-related!

Do You Need to Do Anything Special?: Nope. If you want to just keep checking back on this blog, that’s fine, I’ll be posting my videos directly here like I did with the one above. HOWEVER, if you’d like to help my channel grow and be informed of when a new video comes how please HEAD TO MY CHANNEL and subscribe! Also, click the little bell button so that you can be notified when I post something new.

I hope this excites you as much as it has excited me. I’m looking forward to this new journey. So be sure to check back on January first for my first Foodie Friday post! Thanks for reading, and soon thanks for watching! -Heather Astaneh
