Thinking about Youtube and other things....
During my hiatus I was thinking about making YouTube vids....but I'm feeling some kinda way about spreading my face across the world just now. LOL I was talking with my friend, SarenzoBeads (<=check out her site!!) on twitter yesterday about this and I think I've come to a conclusion.
I've learned soooooooo much since I began this natural journey back in May of 2008 and I really enjoy helping other people...thus, the reason why I was considering YT vids. I was once INSANELY active in the natural hair forum at BlackHairMedia, but I've been away for some time now. I genuinely LOVE those ladies! I learned so much of what I know there and spent a lot of time "giving back" to that community. Side Note: I plan to return there very soon, but I know I have to have hair pics or I'll get run out of Dodge. LOL
I had initially created this blog as a sounding board of sorts, just to share how my journey had impacted my life (my evolution to organic skin care and a raw vegan lifestyle, etc) . However, in lieu of making videos (cause I'm scurred lol), I plan to share the knowledge I've acquired right here...in addition to the personal piece reflecting the changes in my life. I've recently become re-energized as it relates to my online natural hair family. I have sincerely missed "my girls" so it's time for me to make my way "home" to BHM.
Just wanted to chat with you all a little bit about the things on my mind and the path I'd like to take with NaturalSunshine. I like the idea of picture tutorials. That might be a middle ground for me...until I get over my "stage fright."
Until then, take a look at the Natural Hair 101 thread I compiled over on BlackHairMedia a few years ago (WOW, time has flown!). It contains some extremely helpful and encouraging information and really is a great foundation to build from! It's even beneficial for the vets out there! I hope that it serves as a trusted resource for you. Be blessed!
