I love how I can even start this blog so casually. Not even an exclamation mark in the title. Like an every day occurrence that you will have a video broadcasted across the world on Britain's most famous news station....
A few months ago, a man called Douglas Shaw came to film my shop. He runs his own series on the BBC website called 'My Shop.' His purpose is to talk about unique shops and he loved the idea of talking about how social media saved my shop.
Months went by and honestly, I forgot a little bit about it. I have a terrible time of getting excited about anything these days until I know 100% it will happen. Then one night, someone commented on my youtube channel saying they had seen my video on the BBC website and they were inspired by it. I ran to the website, searched for my video and watched it with tears forming in my eyes. That was me, that was my life, my shop, my everything.
I was a little concerned at first when the video focused a lot of the cyber bullying part of YouTube as I have to admit the majority of comments are usually warm and supportive and I also didn't want to come across as weak or a victim. Throughout the video however, I saw that he also showed my retaliation through comedy and satire and I was back to loving the video 100%.
I am so grateful to be in this video. I am so blessed and lucky.
