If you read my latest post about my return to YouTube, you will have heard in my YouTube video that I am having to pivot my content while we adjust to life without travel temporarily. Though it is 100% my priority to bring you as much travel-related content as I can, this means introducing more lifestyle content. In my video, I mentioned how I moved house about a month ago and this new home has already provided me with so many ideas for the near future. With that said, I have decided to create an entirely separate Instagram account to share home-related content called “Lex at Home.” Continue reading “Lex at Home”→
I just wanted to provide a short update that I am really excited about. This past Thursday, I finally uploaded a video on my YouTube channel for the first time in three months!! I am so, so excited to be returning to posting videos regularly and even posting on here more frequently than before. I have been approaching my content creation schedule a lot differently this time around and this time off has been nothing short of helpful for me to get back into a creative groove.
You should definitely watch the video to find out what exactly you can expect to see on this blog and my channel moving forward as we continue to navigate quarantine and, as everyone calls it, our “new normal” for the foreseeable future. While you’re on my channel, go ahead and subscribe to start seeing my weekly videos–you can even watch all the travel content I created pre-COVID. You don’t need a YouTube channel to subscribe, by the way!! Anyway, I just wanted to let y’all know in so many words that: I’m back.
With our world shifting to all things virtual, I am able to attend a lot more events that are hosted by organizations I really admire. While I would oftentimes try to attend these events in person previously, I found myself running into different scheduling conflicts or having to justify driving a far distance for only a couple of hours of my day. When these events are held after the work day, especially, it becomes easier to talk yourself out of it rather than rushing halfway across town. While the limitations to virtual events are those in-person connections and potential networking opportunities, it provides accessibility which is extremely important. I am not only given the opportunity to attend and learn, but I am also given the opportunity to share my thoughts with you all. Further, I can help promote people and/or their work with the audience I have here which is the most fun part. 🙂
I went back and forth about sharing my annual birthday post and the revelations I have come to over the last year of life, but eventually, I thought to myself, “Why not share?” After making the decision to take a hiatus last month, I felt stuck between a rock and a hard place. The year of 25 was, for the most part, an exceptional year for me; I traveled to England, France, Hawaii, and the Dominican Republic. I even explored Fredericksburg, Texas and returned to Washington D.C. after three years. Outside of traveling, I taught myself how to create and edit vlogs and ultimately settled on the vision I wanted for this blog and my YouTube channel. Even more importantly, I met the most perfect man that has only brought joy to my life since our first date. ❤ Overall, you could say the last year on this earth has been pretty amazing!! Until recently, that is. Continue reading “26: What I’ve Learned Since Quarantine”→
