Hashtag Event September 2015

Hi Folks

Today I would like to tell you about the latest hashtag event on YouTube.  It starts 17th September 2015 and runs until the 20th september.  That is 4 days of creative yumminess :)  I have made a promo video which is now live on YouTube for all to see.  click here if you would like to watch my video, if you like what you see please give me the thumbs up and subscribe (if you haven't already done so) so you don't miss seeing my new videos.

The hashtag theme this month is going to be "fall" now for those of us in Europe it is not that we are having an accident theme, it is the season of autumn :)  For those of you who don't know what a hashtag event the best way to find out what it is, is to check it out.  Simply go onto YouTube and type into the search bar either #lovesummerart or #pawgustart  This will bring up a load of different YouTube art videos including some of the smaller up and coming art channels like mine :) There is mixed media, clay, watercolour, scrapbooking and card making to be found.  Too many more types to mention them all.   

The idea behind the hashtag event is to take back control of what people find when they put a search in for creative videos.  I don't know about you but I find it frustrating (until now) that I seem to always find the videos that are at least a year old and until I started to get to know some of the youtube creators and subscribe I did not seem to be able to find the most recent videos uploaded.  So putting in the hashtag gives us as creators a better chance of our audience finding us.  Especially small channels like mine just starting out and trying to find our audience. 

If you like what you have read/seen so far.  Please come back to either here on my blog or my YouTube Channel on the 17th September and I will announce the new hashtag for September. 

Thanks for joining me today.  Take care until next time T x

News and update

Hi folks

I am back, bigger and better than ever.  It has been a little while since I last posted and I also know I really need to get a better routine going.  I have expressed this on a couple of occasions I think throughout my time as a blogger lol but not really quite got the hang of posting more regularly.  Well, now is the time to get my butt into gear.  I am at a crossroads in my life and need a bit more creativity and fun in my life.  So I am putting in a renewed effort into my blog and formulating a better plan to get my blog posts a bit more regular.  I have started a YouTube channel as you may have seen on previous posts.  I hope you have popped over and had a look at the uploaded videos  :)

My best news today is that I have finally sold my house.  This means I will be less stressed out and have more spare time to work on my blog and YouTube

There are exciting events up and coming.  I am going to take part in an art collaboration where I will be starting the background of a canvas and sending it to a fellow artist, who will do the same for me.  We will then finish of the canvas we receive from each other.  Of course there will also be a video done and posted so watch this space for that.

The other exciting project I am going to be involved with is another hashtag event which is a monthly art festival on YouTube.  We all create a themed video with a hashtag. The hashtag will be kept secret until the morning of the 4 day events.  Watch out for my promo video with all the details for that coming soon.

Here is to a new routine and a fun filled life full of creativity :) Take care everyone and thanks for visiting ttfn x
