40 By 40 | Task Completed – I’ve Started A YouTube Channel


Back in September of last year, I turned 37. With life feeling far too short I wrote myself a 40 Things to do before turning 40 list. Finally, I can cross one thing from my list. If you missed my original post you can read it here.


Setting myself a 3-year goal to complete all 40 tasks, I have found things quite limiting so far with the whole lockdown situations and COVID pandemic. Here’s hoping I can start enjoying things and doing more over the coming months/years.


Taking myself right out of my comfort zone I jumped straight into making myself a YouTube Channel, this is something I’ve been thinking about doing for such a long time and finally did it.


I’ve been having fun making videos and definitely learning new things each day. My editing skills have improved with each video. I’m becoming much more comfortable in front of the camera so not I’m not having to edit half as much as I used to which helps.

If you haven’t already I’d love for you to check out my YouTube channel – Musings of the Phoenix


There are a few videos up on my channel all ready for you to watch and enjoy. If you have any requests please leave a comment for me and I can get a video done for you.


If you do enjoy my channel, then please don’t forget to like, subscribe and hit the little bell so you’re notified when I upload a new video.
