Reasons Why I Shouldn't Vlog!

Yesterday as I was wasting time on Facebook ... I know, surprise surprise... the topic of Vlogs came up. For those of you not familiar with Vlogs, they are blogging but with a video.

Of course, the first comment out of my mouth was, "Have you seen me in front of a video camera... I am sure it is safer for society if I remain away from vlogging!"

Naturally the response by fellow blogger/vlogger Julie from Life According to Julie was, "NOW YOU HAVE TO VLOG. You can't say that and not produce!"

Now, I took that as a challenge. And what it comes down to is I have a hard time backing down from a challenge. So, I sat there and I did a lot of thinking. And while I originally thought, "There is no way in HELL I can do a Vlog!" my mind suddenly switched gears and I thought, "With that being said, there is no way in HELL I can not do a Vlog!"

Did you ever get an idea stuck in your head and suddenly that is all you could think about. Well, that is what happened. So suddenly I thought it would be a great idea to do a Vlog about all the reasons why I shouldn't do a Vlog. I even woke up at 3 a.m. this morning tossing around the excuses in my head.

The solution: If I didn't get this Vlog finished, there was a good chance I would not sleep again tonight. So here we have it... my very first VLOG! Hope you enjoy!


I have to admit, the Vlog was actually pretty fun to do! Who knows, maybe it is something that I will continue with. But for this time, I even dressed up for the occasion. After all, it is important to make a good first impression!

    2. what do you wear that is funny.... Bloggiong like this is a heck of a lot different than putting yourself out there for people to see. You vlog,, and i bet you (being a attractive female) are going to get quite of odd requests.. but i dont want to be negative..I wish you best of luck..

    1. When I first started I was like... oh this will be short. I guess I blarf at the mouth just like I blarf in almost every comment I make as well. I can't help it. I am a writer and words just shoot out of my mouth. Glad you enjoyed this. I just needed someone to say I had to do it. Now if only that technique would work for writing my book! :)

    1. I am still messing around with Windows Movie Maker. I wish I had a better program but for the time being, that will have to work. Maybe at the beginning of the year I will invest (so I can write it off on taxes) in video editing software if I keep up with this. I also want to invest in a new laptop!

    1. Thank you. I have always been told Red was my color so I wear it a lot. As for the captions... It is a part of the movie maker program I currently use. It came with my computer!

  7. Let's try that again---apparently for a writer, I have trouble typing--Loved this! Loved the dress and your speaking voice is really great by the way!

    1. Thank you. My speaking voice was the hardest part about the whole thing. I hate the way I sound recorded. And I have a tendency to trip on my own tongue. Maybe I just need to do more of these. Practice makes perfect!

  10. You did a great job. I have the same problem in talking too fast, or, maybe people in the South simply have a problem listening too slow. When I did stand-up, I had to be very careful in front of alcohol dulled audiences, especially in the South. Great job!
