Good Morning and welcome back to Blogmas day 13!
I had another post planned for today, but I’ve had a rough few days and have been very overwhelmed with the holidays, all the changes that are coming for me, and life in general, so needless to say I ended up not prewriting a post for today.
Since I didn’t have time to pre-write a post I thought I would share with you today something I’ve been wanting to talk to you all about for a while, and something that has been helping me feel better on the rough days. I know you probably wouldn’t think this, but the thing that has been helping me through all the rough is SNAPCHAT. That’s right, if you didn’t pick it up in the title Snapchat is a platform that I use to promote my blog, but it’s also a place where I film my everyday life. I vlog on Snapchat. If you don’t know what Vlogging is, this is the Urban Dictionary definition:
-A video log. A journalistic video documentation on the web of a person’s life, thoughts, opinions, and interests. A vlog can be topical and timeless, instructional and entertaining. The main thread is trying to communicate on a personal level with your audience.
This is exactly what I do everyday, almost everyday, on my snapchat! I love being able to communicate with all of my followers, let them know how I’m feeling, what I’m doing, and even what I’ll be wearing for that day! (You can add me @callahanpn) This is also the easiest way for me to get everything off of my chest when I’m having bad days, it allows me to ask you all questions, and honestly, I just love the fact that you guys are interested in my boring life and care enough about me to watch what I’m doing and to listen to what I have to say!
I love how simple it is to record a clip and then immediately post it so you all can see and I also love that you’re able to interact with every part of my story by simply swiping up on the snap and sending me your own thoughts or comments through a chat! That’s probably what I love the most. That you all can interact back with me so easily! Another part of vlogging daily on Snapchat that I really enjoy is the fact that it’s so raw and real and I find myself being able to be 100% Paige. It’s like I’m talking to a friend essentially and that’s something I really need in my life.
I was going to insert one of my blogs here so you could get a better idea of what I’m talking about, but my phone and computer won’t sync up together, so I’ll insert the few clips that I can. Trust me, the vlogs always contain much more than what you are about to see, and I actually have real conversations with you on there as well, but here are a few bits that my phone would let me upload here:
I don’t really know where I’m going with this post. I guess I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve found a place for me to be myself, talk to people, and say what I’m actually feeling. This has tremendously help me pick myself up on my bad days, and it gives me a reason to keep going, so I’d like to say thank you so much for all of the support you guys have given me through my blog posts, Snapchat vlogs, and Instagram. I’m so thankful for you all and I’m so happy that you all are enjoying what I’m doing.
Be sure to follow me through all of my social media which is linked in my contact information which you can find in my drop down menu at the top of your screen! Once again, thank you so much for all your support and I’ll see you on snapchat @callahanpn!
Make sure you meet me back here tomorrow bright and early tomorrow for another Blogmas post that is all about a major part of Christmas Time! (:
