For a long time I’ve been thinking about creating a YouTube channel. I have a theme/subject area, brand name and loads of ideas. A few days ago I began to set everything up and made my first attempt at recording. Apart from the stupidly awkward newbie on camera behaviour (I’m sure I’m not the only one), everything went well. But I have a problem, I don’t want anyone I know finding out I am youtube. Especially don’t want someone I know stumbling across one of my videos by accident. Now in theory, the chance is small but not impossible. So how do I get round this? I’d do it without showing my face but watching others who partly overlap with my theme all show their face. And I kind of feel that is essential. Any advice? I still want to start a channel but I would prefer to remain anonymous.
