Argh, Don't do THIS! ;)
This post is just a quick reminder so the same doesn't happen to you that just happened to me! :D
I just spent 40 minutes recording 2 YouTube videos to my channel.
After that I noticed that during that whole time my microphone was OFF and only the laptop's mic was recording that has a completely awful sound quality.
Before recording I quickly checked the microphone and I was like, "Yeah, there's some sound. Should be working!" But I didn't bother to check which mic it is.
So, please, don't do the same mistake! Always remember to DOUBLE-CHECK that the right mic is recording when you are doing YouTube videos.
Another "mistake" that I made before a couple of times was that I had written a text and I was supposed to copy-paste it to another place on my computer.
Instead of pushing CTRL + C (=copy), I pushed CTRL + X (=cut). Then I got distracted and copied also some other text.
When I was about to paste the original text, it had disappeared into the cyber-space and I had lost it.
Howver, after repeating the same mistake probably 3-5 times, I think I have finally learned that it's better to use CTRL + C instead of CTRL + X always when copying the text.
Very simple things, of course, but you don't want to waste 30 minutes writing something and then losing the text.
Also, a good way to avoid losing any text is to always type in some cloud like Google Docs, Wealthy Affiliate or Wordpress that auto-saves it.
If you are not connected to the Internet and you have written a long text, you can save it to 2 places so if you accidenatelly delete the other one, at least the other one remains (Again, I speak from experience of losing a text when I saved it only in 1 place and deleted it accidenatelly, LOL!)
That's all for today. Just a quick reminder. :)
Would be fun to hear from you.
Have you ever lost some text / video / other work? How?
=> How do you prevent that it doesn't happen again?
Let us know in the comments below!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
