Whats on my Camera wish list.

I have a few Camera’s on my wish list .My first is Canon 750d .I currently have D5100 Nikon but its time for upgrade .Most black people shoot with Canon, I feel like Nikon DSLR colour settings on black skin aint that flattering. I look a bit grey. I have messy about with the custom setting and I still aint happy. Time for a new camera.

I have been looking  a Canon 750d DSLR with a flip screen, this Camera has good reviews plus it has a microphone input.I also want something for the indie films I wanted to make and this camera has good reviews on NoFilmSchool, which is a website for indie filmmakers. You can buy Canon 750D at Amazon.Just click on the link

200

This next camera I want is a small DSLR camera with a flip screen .The Canon 200d is the one for me .It would make a great backup camera and vlogging camera.Its a lovely size for travelling as I want to be a travel blogger too. I am going to be travelling more so I need a compact powerful camera.It has a cropped sensor and shoots video at 1080p 60fps and wifi .Its also has a touchscreen.Like Canon brand more as the lens are cheaper the Nikon lens.

I also need some lens .I need 50mm lens for my Nikon D5100 the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR f/1.8G Lens – 50 mm.You can buy it at Amazon .If you would like to buy it please click on the photo to buy it at Amazon.

I want the Yongno Yn EF 50mm this lens got excellent reviews .I saw a fellow Nigerian vlogger using it. And she looked beautiful using it. Its only £44 .Click on the photo if you like to buy it.

It might sound weird to white people or light skin people but not all cameras flatter chocolate coloured skin like mine.
EF 50mm this len.I would appreciate if you use my link to buy the items as there affiliate links and it would help me buy then items I need.If you own them or buy them let me know what you think about them. I am aspiring photographer and learning everything I need to know about photographer via YouTube and library books.

Get the right photographic equipment for dark skin like mine can be difficult. When film cameras first came out ,there were made to flatter white skin tones. Here a film explaining them problem. I am not to sure the problems been solved to be honest.

Nikon new AP lens

I’ve had my Nikon D5100 since 2014 , its take me a long time to get use too it. And I am still learning how to use it. But I am upset ,as Nikon has changed there lens and the new AP lens aren’t compatible with my old D5100 Camera. There only compatible with three Nikon DSLR cameras: D3300, D5300 and D5500. I regret buying this camera to be honest ,I wish I would have brought Canon instead.

NIKON AP

Nikon lens are also more expensive then Canon. Nikon a brand for someone with a lot of cash to burn. Not a mature student like me on a limited budget. I think its time to switch to Canon. I would like to get the Canon 700d or 750.

canon_eos_700d

I would also like to get a mirrorless camera like Canon M10 because its got pop up screen and changeable lens .It would be a great vlogging camera.I would also like to get some different lens to take more photos with.This is my Wish list is 50mm lens , 55-200mm .

YouTube Trolls

I have been on YouTube for ten years clapping but lately its being to annoying me. As much as I love my subscribers. The trolls, who seem to think ,they have to get an answer to every question there ask me .Or think they can tell me what to do on my channel.Or write abusive comments and threaten me. I am getting pissed off with them .They seem to feed of negative energy.When I check there YouTube page ,its always 90 percentage a blank page. Its annoying and an act of a coward.

Picture 2

There are things I would never share , family and partners is off limits camera wise. Those people don’t want to be on YouTube and I respect that. But its amazing how the trolls demand to see what isn’t there business.But you never see these trolls face or family lol hypocrites

But what’s annoy me is ,they never donate to my channel but think there going to come tell me what to say, think and do on my channel. Like there actually paying for content.Video’s take time and effect.

Its amazing the Egos of some of the people commenting on YouTube video’s

There many changes in my life this year and I need to dedicate time to that. There no really money in YouTube ,if you want to talk about racism ,politics etc. YouTube demonetize most of my video’s . I can make a better impact by writing books and making short documentaries .I need to dedicate time to my new family too.I wont bother saying anything on YouTube like goodbye as I keep changing my mind. But I will take a break for sure.

Its sad that some folks are so insecure they think there are owned explanation from someone like me who just makes YouTube videos. Like there know me.Its like these people don’t have anyone in there life who cares for them.And expect me to care for them and there opinion. Weirdos and insecure as fuck.

I say what I want and do what I want on my channel. I never say anything about anyone I wont say to there face. That’s me in real life , Love or Hate me but you will respect me.

Is YouTube worth it? YouTube has give money to Isil via Google Ad Sense ,https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/03/15/twitter_facebook_and_google_slammed_for_commercial_prostitution_by_mps/ they let Logan Paul show a dead body but didn’t demonetize him. But Demonetize me for making a video about white policemen killing black people in Britain. I have to ask myself do I want to be on a platform that ignorance racism against black people? And doesn’t promote black YouTubers .

I am beginning to think not. There black junction TV but its not that good .Its YouTube created for Black People but there a limit on size of the video you can upload. I need to find another creative outlet. Anyway just my thoughts before bed time.

Also blogger Sofrolushes mention YouTube made another change again.You need 4000 hours of watch time and 1000 subscribers to monetize .I just rolled my eyes.I thought here we go again .Please show Sofrolushes channel some love

I honestly think YouTube don’t care, if there small YouTubers don’t make any money, there only interested in big YouTubers like Logan Paul ,KSI

I think YouTube exploits small YouTubers to be honest .Its time to do more blogging instead .Love Elizabeth

HeartBroken bye Youtube.

I have been on YouTube nearly 8 years and the hate is getting too much. Plus my health problems aint getting any better. I am coming off YouTube for a break. Sorry to my YouTube subscribers but l haven’t had enough.Love to you all and thanks for your support over the years.

I will still blog here but my video’s wont be available anymore. Its just not worth it.

Much love please pray for me.

 

Blogging is a part time Job

I truthly feel like blogging is a job, I feel like I spend a huge amount of time blogging via YouTube or my blog .I also socializing a lot via Twitter, Google hangouts or Snapchat. My life seems to be spend online a lot and I love it. I love the fact ,that I can talk to people around the world especially Africa. That I would never get the chance to meet normally due to location and financial constrains. Its seems like the world is getting smaller due to the internet and social media.

I am constantly amazed by the amount of people who read my blog and watch my YouTube channel. I am seriously thinking I need to start making an income online, as I spend to much time online not to make a income.Currently I only have Google ad sense account that only brings in £60 a year. I can’t live on that.

I feel like a don’t promote myself enough on my Twitter account bettytoo22 .I can go days without post a link to my blog post or Youtube channels. But I am happy to promote other peoples work but not my own work. I feel like I am having a light build moment.Its like MsAfropolitan in this interview .She was spending so much time blogging that she need to monetise her blog.

Honestly I was scared to promote my work ,I worry that people wont like me and will unsubscribe to me.I feel like I need to get over this fear. I put to much work into my blog and Youtube to let peoples nasty comments stop me. I also paint and I am a artist and like to make clothes and handbags.I need to start promoting what I do outside of Youtuber and blogging.To be able to make a realistic income from blogging. Social media is a way to drive traffic to your website, where you sell your products .I need to create an action plan to use my following properly and to increase my income .

I have found in the ten years Vlogging on YouTube ,I have never got an donate via my PayPal donate button on my YouTube channel page.Its quite disheartening.I think people are just use to getting content for free and don’t stop to think .The time and cost that goes in to creating good videos and blog post on a tweet weeny budget like mine.

Please spare some change for my Youtuber channel and other Youtuber you like, as small Youtuber like me, never get sent products to review.We buy our own products. And we rarely get promote especially since we are Black . And if you talk politics, racism you wont get promoted due to the current politics climate and the Orwellian world thats being created by western governments trying to get rid of freedom of spreech.

Donating helps me create better content and buy new equipment like a mic and pay travel cost when I want to go to an blogging events like in London.Blogging scene seems to start and end in London. And unfortuanley for me I live in Northern England. There also a blogging scene in Africa and I am keen to experience that too but that takes time and money too.So please donate if you can afford too. If not please share my blog posts and videos via social media with friends and familes members, as supporting doesnt always have to be moneywise. Please donate below by clicking on the Paypal button on my Youtuber channel ,link here.Button is on the top right of the page

Getting back to blogging as a part time job ,I want to make an income from blogging as my health still isn’t improving I cant cope with working full time as I still have chronic pain for Fibroids and Polycystic ovaries . Blogging seems like the only real part time job that would give me a income with my health condition and would fit around it .As the medicine I take makes me tried a lot ( Tramdol and Gabapentin ,Paracetamol daily) .I end up like sleeping beauty alot.

 I also want to travel and connect with other women and men of African descent
and be able to make a reasonable income wherever I am in the world, Africa where I am planning on travelling to first.

I am definitely going to start promoting myself and organising my other email address as my current Gmail address is full of spam .It makes it so hard to follow bloggers I love ,when my email is full of spam and random shit lol.

A blogger who is serious about making money has to be organise and treat it like a job. And I realise the money dont come straight away from blogging its a process ,you live and learn, in the Blogosphere .

Please share my post and comment if you have any tips for making income online via blogging. And please donate if your can .Love Betty

Living your passion

I started a new a YouTube channel called Bettyscloset a few months ago just to share my passions for clothes,hair and beauty but due to financial problems and health problems I haven’t been able to upload many videos. But I have decided to challenge myself and do the 30 day Vlog challenge. I have been inspire by other YouTubers like Annie Drea & Shameless Maya to do more Vlogs. And to be Shameless like Maya says.I am my worse critic. I don’t have many family in the Uk just my sister and mum. We ain’t on good terms.I think I internalize all the negative things my family and people said about me. And started to feel worthless.I thought I was what people told me I was.But I am not.

Connecting with other people via YouTube and blogging has made me realise my family aint everything .If they dont want to chill with me .It don’t matter .I am worth something. And I will have my own family one day.

And there’s other family members in the USA and Africa who want to get to know me.I have learnt that there are people who love me and like watching my video’s and reading my blog. And I have to remember that when I am feeling low.

I have also learnt ,I just need to be me and not try and be a perfectionist or wait until I have the perfect dream Vlogging camera Canon M10 .I just need to work with what I have.Thanks Shameless Maya for teaching me that.

I am also learning how to Vlog and edit videos on VSDC editor .And to film at different camera angles and how to use different filming equipment .I find Shameless Maya Tech Talk videos a great guide for any YouTuber that’s looking to up there game. And produce excellent YouTube video’s.Its so inspiring to see a black women who knows how to edit well.The tech industry is dominate by man unfortunately.

Its a lot of fun Vlogging but hard work .But you have to follow your passion in life.Whats life with out passion?

Tell me whats your passion? Are you a YouTuber too or a blogger ? Comment below Please check my videos below and share on social media  & please  comment .Kiss kiss dont forget to live your passion.

Megabus Manchester to London

A couple of months ago I travel to London via the Megabus to go and get my Nigerian passport. And its was cheap as peanuts I thought I would do a quick review of Megabus for the people who hope to use this bus company.In total it cost me £7.00 to travel to London on a return ticket .I got brought this coach ticket as I couldn’t afford the train fare .It’s double in the last year to go London by train,so Megabus seem like a great option.For people on a teeny weeny budget like me.

I can say it was an alright ride the bus, the seats we comfortable but not enough legroom if your tall like me ( 174cm) .The toilet was teeny weeny too. You cant afford to be fat on Megabus as you will get stuck on the toilet. As the cubicle is so small and its a very tight squeeze .The Wifi wasn’t get but it did the job.

The bus arrive on time at 3.15 am but the only problem was the bus arrived London 1.30 hours late .Due to the another bus driver arriving late in Milton Keynes,which is where the bus drivers change over. And another Megabus just outside London , had a fire and break down. And our driver had to take hes passenger on to our bus. Which made us even later.I realise now after all that, why the Megabus is so cheap. There’s a 50 percent chance it wont arrive on time. But really what could I have done as its was only £7.00 on a return ticket to London from Manchester.

megabus.jpg

 

Some of the passengers got upset with the driver for being late arrive to London and they we told they would be kicked off the bus for complaining too much. There were two Nigerians complaining there were quite aggressive.Its the Nigerian way to be very expressive when you speak.I just laugh as you should know better at this price then expect the coach to be on time .Its not Ryanair who are great at being on time.I was just happy are coach didn’t catch fire like the other coach.

This Megabus coach its really for the budget traveler who has a lot of time too kill.I would not recommend it if you need to get there on time.Try National Express for that.

One last thing, there was a screaming baby on the way back that nearly gave me a headache,l think the baby was in pain .Every time I tried to sleep the baby kept crying and let us now, that if he couldn’t sleep no one was going too sleep lol. But apart from that it was a nice trip. Would I use there service again .Yeah sure but only because l am on a small budget and cant afford the train. Happy Travelling ..Please comment ,sub and share on social media.
