I had been meaning to get around to starting a youtube channel, but it was a blizzard in January 2020 that caused me to open an account, record and post my first video!
It was part of a meetup where we had 5 minutes to speak on a topic. I got up and got ready to drive into Vancouver for a day of work before the evening presentation. I was gutted to bail on the meetup but we don’t often get actual blizzard warnings and it felt risky and downright unsafe to make the drive-in. I embedded this video in a slide deck so I could be one of the presenters.
Several hours later the meetup was cancelled. I was home safe and warm and presto – my life as a YouTuber was born.
I’m glad I made the best of it and I’ve had so much fun with recording videos for youtube since then!
