The One I Can’t Decide What To Talk About [Vlog Ep. 06]

The fear of being vulnerable was one barrier I had deal with when I started blogging. Then, I had to change my mind about vlogging. As I try to figure out the vlogging vs. blogging thing, I appreciate how much easier it is to talk on video that it is to write.
