Some of you will know, some of you will not, I am a stay at home mum, I don’t have a 9-5 job. I have my own business making greetings cards but it doesn’t earn me much, just enough for a couple of coffees out a month. If you want to see my cards you can visit my etsy shop here.
I first saw the buy me a coffee button on a blog I was reading a few months ago, I clicked the link and donated $3 to the blogger, they were saving for a house and I loved their writing so wanted to help even if it was just a small amount of cash.
Fast forward to yesterday when I was chatting with a couple of my YouTube friends, one mentioned she was thinking of creating a page and suggested I did too. I had a little think and thought why not? It isn’t hurting anyone and it doesn’t force anyone to donate.
I sat down to create the page and started writing out the my story section.
Basically I love making YouTube videos, it is one of the best decisions I have ever made and it has changed my life for the better, I know that sounds super dramatic but it really did. It helped me get out of a huge cloud of depression and loneliness and has alleviated so much anxiety from my life. Don’t get me wrong, i still get down days and days when I feel like the world will end if I don’t manage to do things as quickly as my brain is telling me I need to but those days come less and less now.
One of my favourite kind of videos to make is testing out new makeup products as soon as they launch however I don’t often get to do this as it always seems to be a new products launches and I have no spare money to buy it to test. So I thought my Buy Me A Coffee page can be for brand new products, or for haul videos from specific shops chosen by my subscribers. I think I will hold polls on my instagram to get you guys to decide what product I should test each month, that way I can still make my videos which keeps me happy and I can create content that you guys want to see.
I don’t ever want anyone to feel like they have to donate or feel bad if they can’t. I know how tight money can be so any donation is appreciated more than I can ever express, I actually cried when the first one came in around an hour ago. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far, you are truly so kind I am blown away.
