Big News: Penny for Your Thoughts?

Itinerary for this March... Buckle up!

Rogue Gone Vogue: I really love this blog. I hope you do too. It's been 2 years since launch...

Aside from the rotten fun I have creating content for RGV, I love that it is a pure authentic reflection of my passions: fashion and travel, and that it is read and celebrated by people like you who are passionate about those things too!

But I have a secret... another passion that I have been hankering to throw into the mix... but haven't had the courage or opportunity until now... (more on that in a bit)

I am going totally Rogue (<- ha.) this March... I have 5 trips lined up in the space of 4 weeks!
I am going horse-riding in Spain, a university trip to Paris, a charity walk across the desert in Jordan, and flat/internship hunting in New York, followed by a maybe skii week at home; Switzerland.

1. Do understand that these are all working/charity/uni trips: not holidays.
2. Therefore I am sharing them with you (in the professional and informal) way I approach my blog with with my motto in mind: Living loving learning sharing.
3. My aim with sharing these trips with you is not/never to insight envy, but to teach you what I learn about a place, to inspire you to aspire, show you how I approach being a frequent traveller/flyer, and most importantly to give you a healthy euphoric dose of escapism!

SO: In order to live, love, learn and share these adventures with you...
I've been toying with the idea...
launching my own Youtube Channel!?!
...and (yikes) Vlogging?!

For those of you who know me, know that I LOVE making film!
(Check out this cute little short fashion film I directed and edited with my uni mates!!)

I've been getting my kit together for a while now with this proposition in mind...  like microphones, tripods, taking editing classes at uni!!, practicing (see above), and coming up with logos/names

My aim would be to share what I learn and be as authentic as I am on my blog
So apologies in advance, if you are looking for £400 worth lighting rigs (in my bedroom or in a desert), it's not going to happen.
Also: I am not a makeup guru, and never will be. (So you're just going to have to put up with seeing my un-foundation-caked freckly-ass face up close.)

Point is: I am professional in journalism and film, so I know you will enjoy the visual I provide you with, but this is the first time I'm putting myself directly in the narrative too, like literally talking to you... do you like me?
and that is what has set me back... attempting to muster up the balls!
I can handle the inevitable mean 'troll' comments but.. can I?

March is definitely a good time to kick off... It's now or never but... would you like to see that kind of content? My blog has become much more than just me, over the past two years; it's now you too!

I wan't your opinon
Would short 10 minute videos of my condensed travels be something you like?
Would you support it? Do you guys even have youtube accounts? Do you watch Vlogs?
What do you like about them? What do you hate that I should totally avoid?

The floor is yours!!

So penny for your thoughts: P-L-E-A-S-E.
(Comment box is just at the bottom of this post if ever!)

Love you all lots! I hope you are excited as I am!!!
