Day 22 & 23 – Ohh…

Hello world!

I needed yesterday to recover from the shame of the 16 second video of myself that I posted.  In my honest opinion, it was 16 seconds too long, but at least you got to see / hear me, and now you know that I am real!

I’m currently in the process of trying to work out how to take a ‘legal’ video whilst driving.

I have a phone holder, that attaches to my windscreen via a suction cup.  It’s very strong, and manoeuverable, and I was able to set my smartphone up so the camera was pointing out of the window…  I stumbled on two problems.  The first was that it shook because of the vibrations of the car.  Hmmm…  It just didn’t like it when I put my foot down…  The second problem was that the camera was too much of a distraction, therefore if the police would see me do that, I’d surely be pulled over.

The only other thing that I can think of, would be to get my DSLR, and to ‘wedge’ it in one of the corners on my dash, pointing out the window.  That would be a good idea, although I would have to do a lot of editing when I get home.  Afterall, I have to think of my own privacy, and I need to hide the directions to/from my house from any ‘landmarks’ around this area, ha ha 🙂

I don’t know why I want to do it.

It was actually suggested to me as a possible thing I could vlog about (sort of).  To make a short video on (driving on) the roads in my area, and to show some people what is the wrong side of the road to them (but it’s the CORRECT side of the road…  Everyone else drives on the wrong side, ha ha).  I laughed it off at first, but the more I thought about it, the more it sounded like a good idea.  I would have to think about where I would drive…  Should I show off the immediate local area, or should I go somewhere else..?

Yes.  That is my local ‘village’.  Quite nasty really…  Ha ha.

That’s giving me another idea actually.  How would a compilation of photographs (that I take) of my local area / the city in which I live, edited together in to a video work?  I think that’s another possibility.

And this is the beautiful city that I live in.  Or a small part of it anyway…

Hmmm…  Choices, choices…  Let’s see what the weekend brings.

Day 21 – vlog – Hello World, it’s me!

Oh my gosh, ignore the way I look…  This must have been the 100th take!!

Days 18, 19 and 20 – Failing Miserably

I realise that I have failed miserably at keeping up with a daily post.  I mean, this one is for Saturday, Sunday and Monday!

I wonder where daily posters get their inspiration from.

As a mother, I would always have something to blog about, but I don’t want to have a parenting blog.  There are already hundreds…  No, thousands of blogs out there to do with parenting.  Although I subscribe to a lot of them, I don’t really care for reading how little Billy lost another tooth, or what colour little Roses’ nappies are…  I know how to look after my little man, and I know what is best for him.  And just because it’s best for him, doesn’t mean it would be best for the child next door…  Do you know what I mean?

However, reading the funny side of parenting is funny.  Things that you want to keep forever, or the things that you are so proud of your child for.  For example, a few months ago, my little man tried on his daddys’ size 13 boots, and I found it hilarious for him to try and walk around in them.  And another; yesterday, we were letting him have a little bit of nappy-free time, when he had a little ‘accident’ on the carpet.  He said that he still needed a ‘wee-wee’, and sat quickly on his potty.  Nothing new?  Well.  It is for us.  This was the very first time that he ever had a ‘wee’ in the potty!!!  *Super Proud Mummy Moment*

I’m still thinking of that vlog too.  I may do that tomorrow.  In fact, I will.  That will be my Tuesday, Day 21, posting.  I shall vlog about something, although now I am giving myself a challenge on what to actually talk about…

Day 8 – I’m going to do it…

I made a post on 21 June 2013 called To vlog or not to vlog, where I contemplated making a vlog.  The only problem I had was the topic in which to vlog about!

Well, 9 months down the line, I’m still clueless about what topic to vlog about, but I am determined to make at least one vlog within the 40 days of Lent.

So…  What should I vlog about?!?!  Ideas!  Please..!!!

Ok.  And to now stray away from the topic all together, have you ever stared at a word for long enough that it just doesn’t look right?  It’s just happened to me.  Just look at the word help.

Help.  HELP.  help.  hElP.  HeLp.  hELp.  hElp.  heLp.  helP.  HelP.

No matter how it’s written, it looks wrong.  Can you even misspell the word help?  Help!

To vlog, or not to vlog…

I’ve seen lots of V-logs all over the place.  People just video logging a diary, reviews, thoughts, baking…  I’ve thought about doing it myself for quite a long time now, but I never follow through and do it.

I guess I just don’t know what to vlog about.

Let’s start from the very beginning.  How do you say it?  Is it vlogging, or V-logging?!

Hmmm…  I guess I need to try it at one point.  I’m used to recording and editing videos / pictures into a video clip, and posting them to youtube, but I’m coming back to the same point…  What would I vlog about?!

Do any of you v-log?  Do you have a theme for what you do, or is it random?  Where do you get your inspiration from?
