This is going to be a sharp learning curve! First lesson of the day – one that any telejournalist could have told me – at the start of a recording, pause and SMILE before actually starting speaking.
The next experiment will entail trying to combine selfie-vlogging and outward-facing vlogging, so I can talk about the library or something on-screen. And comparing the whole experience of recording a YouTube on tablet or on a laptop. My tutor’s going to be So Proud of me!
