Happy Wednesday, dear gal! In fact, Wednesdays are becoming special days here at Dressed for My Day beginning with this one. Every Wednesday from here on out I’ll be posting a style or beauty video to my new YouTube Channel: Dressed for My Day with Kay Harms. Or at least that’s the plan. Ha! Yes, today is my official YouTube debut.
Please be Patient
While I wanted to start today off with a bang, I found I needed to go with something more familiar and comfortable instead. Everything else – the videography, editing, post production promotion and setup – was so new to me. So I kept the content for today’s video safely in my wheelhouse.
I’m simply sharing four ways to style the all-too-familiar white poplin popover from Talbots. But I still think you may learn a new trick or two if you watch the video. Still, I have to admit, I wasn’t nearly as smooth and eloquent and captivating as I’d hoped to be in this first video. Hahaha! But if we waited for that before I launched, we might be waiting until Christmas! And you have to start somewhere. Right?
So be patient with me and I promise my delivery will get better and eventually I’ll hit my stride. I already have next week’s video “in the can,” but I’m taking requests for future topics. So chime in and let me know what you’d like to see. Let’s just keep it pretty simple for a while though, okay? Yes, I’ll gladly show you how to apply false eye lashes. But give me a little while on that one!
How You Can Help
I am so grateful for the community of women we have built here. And I know many of you really want to support this new venture. Even if you’re not a big YouTube watcher, you can definitely help me get this venture off the ground by doing a few simple things.
Subscribe to My Channel
You can subscribe to my channel, and that helps tremendously. When you go to your YouTube home page, my videos will show up in your subscriptions so you can find them easily. Eventually, there will be a lot of them!
Ring that Bell
Beside the “Subscribe” button, you’ll find a small bell. If you click the bell so that the plain bell shows, you’ll receive some notifications when I upload new videos. If the bell has a strike through it, you will not receive notifications. If the bell has ringer marks around it, you’ll receive notifications with every single upload. You can choose how you receive alerts in your settings.
Give Me a Thumbs Up
If you like the video, I’d love, love, love it if you’d click on the thumbs up sign. That simply indicates you enjoyed the video, and it raises the video in the analytics so others, especially those who have similar viewing taste as you, will potentially have the video recommended to them.
Leave a Comment
You can also leave comments under YouTube videos. You can just say hi and tell me you watched or you can say something more significant. But comments help in the YouTube platform even more than they do here on my blog. They raise that video in the analytics so that it will potentially be recommended to other viewers who have similar taste to you.
Share the Video
You can share my video right there in the YouTube platform. The “share” button is right there beside the “thumbs down” button. (ooh…)You can also just copy the address of my video from the navigation bar and paste it into an email or text to share with a friend who might be interested. And you can upload my videos to Facebook, too. AND you can even save my videos to your Pinterest board.
So yeah, there’s a lot you can do to help make my YouTube debut successful and to help me build my channel. Thank you so much for being willing to do that.
So without further fanfare, here’s today’s video. You can watch it here or get on your YouTube app or channel to watch. I hope you enjoy it!
Don’t Miss a Post:
If you like what you’re seeing here at Dressed for My Day, I invite you to subscribe to my email list. You can receive an email each time I post (about 6 times weekly) or just on Saturdays. You choose! But you’ll also receive the password to open up all the subscriber freebies I offer. AND you’ll be registered for my monthly drawing for a $50 gift card to a favorite retailer. Learn more and subscribe here.
Blessed for My Day
Do you struggle with humility? I’d like to think I’m a pretty humble woman. I don’t like to talk about myself really. And I rarely toot my own horn. Unfortunately those aren’t the only parameters of humility.
My pride still gets the best of me when I demand my own way or think my feelings are more important than those of other people. When I mutter under my breath about the menial chores I have to do in my home and grow frustrated because “someone else” doesn’t do them, I’m not being humble. Humility requires that I step back instead of being first. And it requires that I serve…gladly…rather than demand others meet my needs. How are you doing with humility?
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. ~ Philippians 2:5-8
