Would you post a video on youtube?


I have seen some people with social anxiety posting videos about themselves on youtube and i thought i would like to do that, to somehow connect with people but once its up there i would constantly want to take it down. So i was wondering if anyone here has thought about doing it. Its very relieving for me to see another person talk about thier struggle with SA. I gues thats another reason why i would like to do it.

Never. I don't even like posting pics of myself on line.

I wouldn't. Pics are fine, but video? No way!

I've entertained the thought of it but I don't think I ever would. If I were to, it would be of my dog or me playing the piano, or just something random, but nothing that shows me. I've never even posted up my picture anywhere so a video would be really hard for me. I know the majority of viewers watch but don't comment, so seeing a lot views and no comments would make me feel nervous and I'd start having all these negative thoughts.

I find it hard enough just posting on forums.

re: Would you post a video on youtube?


I would get into it if I could, but unfortunately I'm the type of guy who values his privacy so much, I don't even like talking to people on instant messaging programs when people are around, much less using Teamspeak/Skype/Ventrilo to communicate via voice.

If I were to make a video while someone was around, I'd feel .. "stupid" I guess you could say, and I'm not even sure why.

But if I were alone (right now I'm only 17 so I'm not on my own yet), I MIGHT give it a shot.

re: Would you post a video on youtube?


i'd probably take it down and edit it 6x 1st.. but i think i would do it.. im alot more comfy on the internet speaking to people and showing myself.. i can't chat on the phone to people yet i can use a micrphone on my pc and speak to people.. probably because of the whole "they are on the other side of the world and will never meet me" idea..

but yeah, if i got even 1 hater or bad comment i'd probably take it down lol

I've seen myself on video before and hate it. It's just so wierd seeing myself act. Not to mention I think voice is weird.

What is the most important thing you can be doing right now, and why aren't you doing it?
Training is nothing! Will is everything! The will to act.
Often a 80% plan executed right away is better than a 100% plan executed later.
You think that's air you're breathing now?

Depends what kind of video, I guess I could do a stupid little dance or something. But a monologue with the camera zoomed in on my face? No way!

As soon as the 'ON' switch on the camera was flipped, a switch in my head would flip, which would result in me flipping the switch on the camera to 'OFF'.

I would do it. As soon as I had a video camera and knew how to use it.

Yeah I'm thinking about putting one up...of me & my cousin. We act like old men(named Bob & Bill--I'm Bob)...talk like them, say crazy things old men would say. Someday I want us to dress up like them, and record ourselves saying crazy stuff and put it on there.

The major worry I'd have is that somehow people I knew from college would discover it and mock me.
I hate the sound of my voice too D: It's so whiny and horrible, I'd be surprised if anyone would want to watch my videos...

I am going to completely work on making myself happy.
