Although I managed to sneak in some posts last month, July had met its end silently on this blog.
But it doesn’t mean you can’t relive another person’s July.
Emily Diana Ruth is a Canadian amateur filmmaker and one of my favourite vloggers. “Letters to July” is an awesome series where Emily uploads daily vlogs for the entire month. And they’re not simple point-and-shoot videos either. You can tell that she puts a lot of thought and care into each one of them, even though the topics may seem simple. My favourite has to be the 9th day where she talked about the rain. There are days where her friends would talk about their July; Michael Aranda, another one of my favourite Youtube persons, made one that looks stunning.
What I love about Emily is that her vlogs always pull you in with warm intimacy that makes every view a personal one but they are also styled in such a beautiful way. It’s a visual feast that is vulnerable and sentimental.
I find vloggers inspiring. It takes a lot of courage to put a face behind the words you reveal about yourself. But to do that in a creative and meaningful way like Emily? More than I am willing to do.
