Well here's my first vlog....crest strip and all!

video
This is my first and possibly LAST attempt at vlogging.
First because I'm so critical of myself in real time...
and second because I'm so critical of myself in real time.

After it was done...I really wanted to go back and do
some editing, retouching, but when it's live and in video...
you can't edit and retype like you do when you're blogging...
it's just raw...and I'm telling ya...I don't know if I like being in the raw.
Also it shows how silly I REALLY am...and how we do a lot of 
"laughing" around here.

It's a good exercise however in forcing me out of my comfort zone and 
into the deep end...

So here it is...first take...
late at night...fresh from the fair
and still getting over the "flu".

Have a great Sunday.
Blessings!

Oh my gosh, I loved it! LOL I think your voice matches you just right silly. And I can't believe you couldn't remember my wonderful blog name (lol). And HOW DO YOU TALK WITH A CREST STRIP?!?!? I can't swallow when I have those in my mouth. Yuck.

I love it and I think you should join us each Thursday! Your readers are really going to enjoy your personality. SO cute!

I'm glad you're feeling better!

Love!
Beth

Oh girl, I LOVED this. You had me cracking up so much!! I covered my mouth laughing at the exact same time you did, which made me laugh EVEN more..

I think you did AMAZING for your first time. I did a video once with the web cam and I couldn't figure out where my eyes were supposed to go..LOL..On the web cam or the screen to watch msyelf,,LOL.So my eyes kept going up and down up and down...

I do hope you make more videos. Your awesome..and I've decided to follow you!!

I have to really want to watch something and be very patient to watch videos online since I do not have hi-speed, only dial-up. I watched the whole thing! It's so great to see what you are like in person. Don't let this be your last video. I loved it, you are so sweet and funny! Now if I could just figure out how to do it I would post one on mine so you could hear my Southern accent...

I'm super critical of myself too. When I do vlog, I try not to be on camera if at all possible. You did a good first job though:-D

I'm going to try wearing lipstick next time and maybe I'll feel a little better...

Beth in NC said...

Did you know I posted about your Vlog and sent people over? lol

Blessings dear one.

I loved hearing you on your video blog. I thought you sounded great. You are so cute and you look just fine. Blessings to you too.

Hi!
I came over from Beth's blog to "meet" you, and I am glad I did. Just watching this little clip made me feel like you would be a great friend. I loved your bit of humor and your laughing. I am the same as you...I don't like being raw either.

Truthfully, I did not think anything about your voice not matching your looks. I just thought you sounded like a nice person.

I have a wonderful sister-in-law from Jamaica, but she does not have much of a Jamaican accent at all. She sounds a lot like you.

You were so funny about asking if sitting at an angle makes you look 100 pounds thinner. We girls are too hare on ourselves!(I am actually not a "girl" at 45.) You look great!

I'll have to come again to see you soon.

♥Hope

This was SOOOO great! You are so much fun and I am so glad that Beth sent me here! This was such a blessing to watch, and I pray to God that you will continue to do more. I cant imagine not seeing you share again.

You had me smiling from the get go! I just loved it.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do this again, and next time link up with Beth, I and many others for the Vlogemotions blog hop. It is great fun and it happens on Thursdays. Just stop by The Fort and check it out if you havent already.

Thanks for the smiles! You did such a wonderful job!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Oh you have to do this again, you are adorable!!!!! Beth has said I need to do it too but I have no idea how to do it and post it to my blog. I suppose I could ask Beth, she's always willing to help.

Plus, I'm like you probably felt....I have no idea what to say or do, but I loved yours. I'll have to try it sometime.
