The story of why I started this blog came from a me a facing a fear that I have had for years. I was basically totally petrified of the idea of speaking on video but at the same time really wanted to start a putting video online so could I share some of my stories and tips and tricks on living the unconventional lifestyle, long term travel, online business and all that.
I really do not feel comfortable being on camera at all. I have never really been a huge fan of having my photograph taken. When someone pulls a camera out at a party, alot of people strike a pose meanwhile I am the one who dives for cover. I have made up every excuse imaginable on reasons why I should not do this video stuff, eg.I heard a theory from somewhere (cannot remember where) that had a concept where if you take a photo of someone you steal a tiny little part of there soul (scary stuff).
The day I faced that fear.
Whilst I was back home in the UK earier this year I made that jump and did it. I filmed that first video (must admit I took several attempts) and put it on youtube. My goal that I secretly set myself was to put out 5 videos. One every 1-2 weeks, surely if I can do this it will get easier with each video and I will have conquered my fear. Then I figured that i should have a website to feature all this stuff, and that is how MiltBlog.com came to be.
So I put my stuff out there and nobody ripped me apart or took the piss as I had feared. In fact, quite the opposite happened, I have recived some great messages and emails from all sorts of people who I never knew before who dig what I’m doing here.
As I predicted these videos got easier each time, and I got the 5th video and thought, “Let’s go mad, Aim for 10 !”

So right now I’m over 3months in and have passed the 10 videos mark and I would not say that I’m 100% comfortable on camera now, but I certainly not quivering with fear like before. And I feel great for it, it is true, there is benefit to facing our fears.
So Now What ?
But what am I gonna do now ?
New target of 50 Videos ?
What’s the future of this little blog ?
I am on the verge on turning it up and taking this project to the next level.
Do you think that I should continue with all this ?
