In my rush to make the transition to YouTube I failed to save all of my vlog's original thumbnails but was able to recover all but seven of them, which isn't too much of a loss. I decided not to re-upload my first 30 vlogs out of embarrassment, so these posts contain their original thumbnails instead of embedded videos. I guess having all my vlogs deleted is a reminder that I need to focus on creating videos with all-original content, but this would alter the way I make them (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).
While there might not be much of a point in re-uploading videos that probably no one cares to see, I spent a lot of time and put a ton of passion and care into my video blogs, so I want them to stay available for anyone who might want to watch them. Although the future of my vlog remains unclear, I intend to keep my videos playable for as long as I can, for they, besides my memories, are the only reminders I have of things I am already starting to forget.
