Okay, let me set the scene. It was June of 2011 and I was finally free to call the shots on my own youtube experience. The day my stepfather left, I unsubscribed from all the channels I had subscribed to because he had told me to. I finished the “My Art and My Asperger’s” series that he had started. I had no reason to fear not being able to come up with ideas. Within the first year after my stepfather left, I did the “My Favorite Youtubers” series, the “What Inspires Me” series, as well as numerous independent vlogs. I decided I wanted to participate in Philip Defranco’s Movie Club, so I created a response channel called Aspieresponds, later changed to Sararesponds.
Then one day, I decided I no longer wanted to be Aspie232. I didn’t know how to change my name on the same channel, so on Oct 20, 2012, I created a new youtube account called SaraMakesArt. For all intense and purposes, I stopped using Aspie232, but I never closed that account.
decided I wanted to keep my art videos and my Autism videos separate, so I made another channel called BeingAspie, which is dedicated to my videos about my experience dealing with Autism and the effects it has on my life.
I uploaded videos onto SaraMakesArt for four years, hardly touching Aspie232 during that time. Then one day, I decided to take a look at Aspie232 again, just out of curiosity. I thought, I think I’m going to start using this channel again. So I took advantage of the youtube/google plus integration and changed Aspie232 to saramakesart and after four years, I’m finally comfortable using this channel again. I left comments or messages to all my subscribers whom I could contact and told them I was changing my channel name and starting to upload there again.
So that’s my youtube story. I say thanks for watching at the end of every video, but right now I think it’s appropriate to say a big thank you to everyone who watches my videos, to everyone who subscribed, especially to all of you who stuck around while I was away for so long. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Anyway. I do timelapse drawing and painting demonstrations, as well as art related vlogs, normally, on my channel, so if that sounds goo to you, click here to subscribe, if you haven’t already, I’ll see you all again next week. Good bye.
