I made a promise that 2016 was going to be THE year of the vlog for me (that’s a video based blog for those who are scratching their head) and I have to confess that I have been sucking at it. I started strong with some Netflix News videos but between not having a good place to record said videos and this being one crazy year, I’m sitting here on July 4th with little to show for it.
I have so many blogging friends who absolutely rock their YouTube channels and vlog.. Stephanie Wonderlin Carls, Jessi Sanfilippo, and Kat Bouska just to name a few. Sunday has become one of my favorite days just because I look forward to seeing all the great content that they’ve put out that week and believe me – they do not disappoint. EVER.
Stalking.. I mean perusing Kat’s site this week, I noticed that she has a vlogging prompt ‘challenge’ going on and I thought to myself “Self – that’s what you need… some good prompting!!” so I looked at the prompts she’d listed for the current week and realized that I could probably do ONE of them before the Wednesday due date. I had some extra time since it was a holiday weekend so I fired up the ol’ video camera and got to recording. That didn’t work so I fired up the ol’ iPad and tried again. After about 6 takes, I finally had a decent video to answer her This or That Summer YouTube Tag. I was pretty happy with it but screwed up the video quality when I compressed it.
Sigh… So here it is below. I promise that I will get my vlog groove on from here on out and I promise that the editing WILL get better. So much to do so little time.
Watch it. Enjoy it. And if you feel up for it… subscribe to my YouTube channel while you’re there 😉
