Special Announcement: Go Retro's New YouTube Channel!


Well guys, I finally did it...Go Retro now has a YouTube channel. After nearly a decade of writing this blog I've finally been motivated to jump on the video bandwagon after seeing some fun, professional videos from a couple of other vintage bloggers that I've been following lately and also, the blog had a very good year this year, with readership and page views increasing.

For my male readership, rest assured that this does not mean Go Retro is going to turn into a girly vintage fashion blog. As I explain in my first video, I still plan on writing plenty of content here that appeals to men, women, and both. Having said that, I HAVE been thinking lately that it might be fun to have a YouTube channel to cover vintage makeup and hair tutorials, recipes, stuff I've purchased, or anything else I feel like jabbering about. Truth is, I'm winging it a bit. As you can see from my first video below, I'm not using a fancy video recording camera like those really professional bloggers are using. But I'm sure these will get more polished, especially after I learn some video editing skills. (Looks like my posture needs some polishing in spots, too!)

My first video is below (please be kind!) I do have an idea for another video in the coming weeks, so you'll be "seeing" me again soon! I look forward to having some fun with this in 2017!

    1. Did my wicked hahd accent give it away?

  3. Congrats. If I may make one suggestion... that would be to take advantage of all that natural light coming through your window so we can see you a little better.

    1. Thanks Rich...that is, unfortunately, the best area of my bedroom to stand and set up the camera...I may do the next video in the kitchen where there's more windows and natural light.

  4. I love that we can put a voice to the face. Love the 'wicked hahd accent'.

  5. Funny that people think the accent is that defining. I grew up and still live in the 'burbs, not the city...and I've always thought I've pronounced my Rs. If you were to visit East Boston or Dorchester ("Dorchestah") you'd find the accent much stronger than mine.

  6. Good for you Pam, it'll be interesting to see what you come up with--will you be posting the videos here too, or will we have to go to YouTube to watch them?

    1. Thanks, Doug...most likely I'll announce them here with a little post and embed them in.
