Hope you’re well…
I honestly can’t believe how quick this year is going, can you?
Luckily there’s been lots going on so I really feel like I’m making the most of the year…
Our YOUTUBE channel
I’m chuffed to bits with the progress! I felt like only last week we had like 7 subscribers and I remember thinking ‘How on earth are we going to get to 1000!?’
Well now, we are at 958 subscribers!
Thank you so much to everybody who has subscribed. The aim of the videos are to show different ideas for Bucket Lists, tips on writing, our ups and downs of starting our business and travel.
If those kinds of things appeal to you, here is where you can subscribe:
If YOU have a YouTube channel, let me know and I’ll check it out too.
This video highlights the reason why we started the channel in the first place:
Some other exciting news is that we have invested in some good kit for the channel. I can’t wait to fully explore what these things can do!
We bought a drone, new camera and MacBook Pro in order to make our videos even better!
You can buy this drone here:
We have taken it for a little test run (in a back garden!) and was so surprised at how easy it was to set up and to control. Can’t wait to get some awesome footage when we go away in the summer!
I was so scared to learn on this. If anybody knows me, new technology confuses me… until I ‘get it’ and then I get excited about it.
I’ve watched a million YOUTUBE videos on how to edit on a MacBook Pro and settled on getting ‘Final Cut Pro’ to edit our videos on. After a few attempts of getting frustrated, something ‘clicked’ and now I can’t wait to experiment more. It’s lovely to type on, is small enough to travel easy and is nice and light.
You can buy it here:
After researching for a while and speaking to people who know a bit about cameras, we settled on this bad boy. I’ve mastered the basics and I absolutely love it! It gives such a nice feel to photos and videos. If you subscribe to our YouTube channel in the coming months you’ll see how cool it is!
Check out the camera here:
I’m honestly so excited for taking pics, filming and editing cool footage!!
Sooooooo…. our Prequel to Meet Me At 10 is back from the editors and is being ‘fixed’ as we speak. The aim is to send ‘Shona’ to our Beta Readers by August 1st.
We just want to add that we have used Gary and Caroline from BubbleCow editors.
They did our editing for ‘Meet Me At 10’ also and we love the way they feedback and their impressive turnaround time. Their prices are really good also, so I fully recommend them! Go check them out if you are needing an editor!
Bucket List Book 1
I’m now in full flow writing about my decade long Bucket List and because already I’ve done loads, I’m making it into a book series! It’s been awesome to reminisce at how many places I’ve been and how far I’ve come since my debilitating depression that started the whole thing off!
The aim of the books are to help and to show people who are looking to change their lives for whatever reason that just by coming out of your comfort zone just a little bit at first, you can end up anywhere!!
Bucket List Book 1 should be ready for the editors (BubbleCow) by the end of July.
If people need a front cover designing, the guy who did ‘Meet Me At 10’, ‘Shona’ And ‘Bucket List’ was:
I found him on a website called 99 designs and can’t recommend him enough!
That’s the latest! And that’s the short version! So many adventures to come!
Thanks for reading,
