So many of you who read this blog have been incredibly supportive of what I'm trying to do with my online video show. You've encouraged me to keep making the shows, even when I've said how frustrating the process can be with lack of proper equipment and video experience. You've also said not to get hung up on the lack of views on You Tube. It just takes the right person to bring the perfect opportunity.
And you were right.
I'm thrilled to announce because of my show, I've gotten a freelance on camera job. Someone was out there looking for material for a project for his company. He did a search for one of the topics I did for my show. My show's link came up. The stars were in perfect alignment because he clicked on my show and liked what he saw.
I'm not comfy giving full details because surely that will jinx everything. I am comfortable saying it's a video series that are kind of like "ads." It's hard to describe without giving full details. And yes, once it's a done deal, you will know more and will get to see it, too.
I'm so proud because it's validation for the risk I took in putting up a video show in the first place. It's interesting because I never thought someone would see my show and be interested in me professionally beyond the show.
It's also something plus size women or "realistic" looking women should celebrate. I'm not being hired to get on camera and moan about being fat and wanting to lose weight. I'm not being hired to play the funny best friend or sexless silly neighbor. Or all the other stereotypes that happen when a plus size woman is put on camera. Oh no. I'm being hired because I'm just a person. A real person who just happens to speak well on camera. I get to talk about the things I am passionate about and that's the entire focus. Not what I look like or don't look like.
An amazing situation for my first on camera job in a verrrrrrry long time.
And hopefully not my last!
Again, thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my show. Your support gives me the confidence boost to keep pursuing all of my crazy little dreams!
