Learning how to launch
Approximately one month from now, I will be launching my first YouTube channel and video series. I’ve been working seriously on this project for four months and I’m approaching my first nerve-wracking deadline. Let me start by saying that I’m an amateur. My dad taught me how to cook and I’m completely new to videography. Thankfully, I have some experience with instructional video production and editing.
I have been playing FFXIV since April 2014 and it’s been a big part of my life since then. I’ve been in the same Free Company for four and a half years and it’s also where I met my husband. So, you could say that I’m pretty invested in this game.
Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of enthusiasm for food in FFXIV related social media, and I was really happy to see how much attention cooking received in FFXV. Within this community I’ve also noticed a lot of people are taking better care of their health, and I believe learning how to cook is an important step on the path to a healthy diet.
So why did I decide to do this? Food is a big part of culture and I want to learn more and explore the lore of Hydaelyn from this perspective. This project will fuse my passion for cooking and my love for this game together into one creative outlet. I’m so excited to try out new recipes, work with new ingredients and I look forward to sharing my adventures in food with you!
