Be the best YOU!

Living in a generation where everyone wants to be great. Nothing is wrong with that but what is great? Is it to be the next Kardashian/Jenner and Rihanna because you know we all love to work, work, work, work, work. When was is it okay just to be a great you and work with what you have or can afford. Most of the people we fantasize to be like either came up wealthy or worked their buts off to get where they are now. What are you going to do to get yourself to the top. Are you going to copy what they did or are you going to be original and be the best you can be.

For myself I want to become the best blogger/vlogger I can be so how can I achieve that coming from the bottom and working my way up. First I have to come up with great content that hasn’t been done too much but if it has how do I edit it to make it my own. One way to make something your own is to put your personality behind it. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not because you’ll come off fake and your viewers would think “oh she’s one way here but next she’s someone else”. Be genuine! Secondly your picture and video quality. I don’t have a $1000 camera, a MacBook, artificial lighting, or an extra room I can record so I have to work with what I have. One day I’ll work my way up because I don’t want to go broke all in one day for all that. Instead of a camera I use my iPhone. Yes I said it my iPhone and surprisingly the quality isn’t half bad. I’ve found apps to make photos pop.

Some of the apps I use:

  • Fotor
  • College

These apps works wonder for my Instagram posts and for YouTube. When it comes to lighting natural light can be your best friend but on those cloudy days recording isn’t an option anymore so your planning will change if the weather isn’t cooperating with you. Last tip is research because if you want to improve on something or you have no idea how to do something look it up online. Everything is online and if it isn’t guess what be the first to talk about. That’s new content right there!

I hope this helped you out on how to be a great you and not a great copycat. Figure out ways to make yourself stand out then people are going to be looking up to you and not calling you another one of those.
