We are now into the full swing of Spring 2018. It’s hard to believe that we are already 3 months, almost 4 months into 2018. The first quarter of the year is almost over.
Time slow down…..
With that being said, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my YouTube channel and my Blog. What is it that I want from it exactly? And what am I willing to do to get what it is that I want? That got me to thinking back to around 2006-2007 when God gave me a name for blogging and for my YouTube channel. Stitches ~N~ Hems. I loved it and really liked the sound of it. I used it for 10 years. Then something happened in early 2017. I got the grand idea that I needed to change the name because it was not a business savvy name. (BIG Mistake) He also gave me a name for my ministry/business…yea, I dropped that name as well thinking it was not savvy either and that I needed to pull everything under one name and theme. However, over the last couple of weeks or few days, I have been rethinking that.
When God gives you a thing, it’s already good and there is no need to alter it in any way. This brings us to March 2018, going back to my beginnings!
Yes, I’m reclaiming my blog/YouTube channel name and I couldn’t be more excited!!!
Now nothing changes, except the name. I’ll be blogging, vlogging, and posting videos about everything pertaining to me, my faith, sewing, quilting, vegan lifestyle, gardening, etc.
Once I came to the conclusion that I was changing the name of everything, I had to set some things in motion. For whatever reason YouTube would not allow me to change the name of my channel so I had to start another one from scratch. This really saddened me because my subscribers were so close to the 100 subscriber mark! That’s a big deal and I was all hyped that I’d be doing a give-a-way soon after reaching 100 subscribers. I was only 2 subscribers away!!!! YES, ONLY 2! But I was not deterred, only saddened, and I forged ahead. I posted my first video on the new channel on Thursday, March 22nd; the unboxing of my March 2018 Sew Sampler Box and explaining why I started the new channel. I’m happy to say that as of today I have 6 subscribers. I haven’t yet looked to see if they are from the former channel or new all together, either way, I am super stoked.
I can’t wait to get back to Virginia and get back to my sewing machines so I can’t start sewing again and begin to post more about sewing and quilting. I hope to have some videos on gardening as I help my dear sister in Christ start her backyard garden. I look forward to posting, vlogging, and blogging and hope you will join in for the journey.
I’ll see you sooner rather than later!
