Before we started a Youtube channel, we weren’t very much involved in the Youtube community. Being vloggers ourselves now, we’ve learned so much about Youtube, vlogs, and trends in that virtual video hemisphere. Our latest vlog was inspired by one such trend — reacting to old photos.
Susan and I sat down this week with a handful of old photographs — some when we were in high school and others as new moms and even more in between. If you have a chance to watch the video, you’ll notice just how much fun we had reminiscing over old photographs. We’ve said it once before — do this with your partner! It’s an amazing bonding experience.
Beyond just reminiscing, I find that looking at old photos brings about a ton of memories and stories about our lives and it is through the snapshot that we can relive our past with each other. Although we vlog each week and those memories will probably forever be on Youtube for us to look at in 10 years, there’s really nothing as powerful as a photograph in drumming up memories.
So, yes, we love you Youtube, but here’s to old-fashion photography and the stories they save.
