112 weeks and 2 days | Would I Rather..? | A vlog

So. Nearly 2 and a half years from starting this little diary, I have finally succumbed and published my very first vlog post!

My friend Heledd — who blogs over at Running In Lavender — tagged me to answer 20 questions set by another of our blogging friends, Aby from You Baby Me Mummy.

‘Vlogging’ — video blogging for those of you who are not ‘down with the kids’ (embarrassingly I *may* have said this in my vlog)  — is taking the internet by storm at the moment.

I guess the thinking behind it is, why spend time typing a post when you can say it?

Although, as a die-hard lover of the written word, I can’t see that I’m going to turn in to Zoella any time soon (see, I told you I was down with the kids) ;)

Here are the questions — with the pre-fix ‘would you rather?’:

  • Live in a society with justice but no liberty or liberty but no justice
  • Be a kid again for the day or be the opposite sex for the day
  • No internet for the day or no mobile for the day
  • No one turn up to your wedding or your funeral
  • Go back in time or go to the future
  • Fly or read minds
  • True love or 10 million pounds
  • Surfing the ocean or surfing the net
  • Famous or rich
  • Time or money
  • Win the lottery or live twice as long
  • Be smart or be hot
  • Be half your height or double your weight
  • Have a piercing or tattoo
  • Rewind your life or pause it
  • Always know when someone is lying or always get away with lying
  • Always be underdressed or overdressed
  • That mermaids were real or unicorns
  • Be homeless or be in prison
  • Have a carrot for a nose or Mini Babybels for eyes

And here are my answers…

So without further a do the only thing that remains is to tag a couple of lovely bloggers to join in with this little meme! I tag:

My friend Katie — Life On Vista

My #TwinklyTuesday co-host Lisa — Mumma Scribbles

      Aww thanks so much pet! It’s a funny old thing isn’t it?! I’m not sure I will ever get used to seeing moving images of myself! It feels really weird! :) X

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:04 pm

  3. 10th May 2015 / 8:52 pm

      Aaah thanks so much Pen — that’s really lovely of you! x

    You look fab on film lady! Really enjoyed watching your vlog, always nice to feel like you know someone by actually seeing them isn’t it! You can be the mummys’ answer to zoella! Xx

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:14 pm

      Aww thanks Ju — that’s so lovely of you!! :) Haha!! I could change my name to… Mumella!! LOL!! ;)

  5. 11th May 2015 / 11:22 pm

    Ah I loved this Caro- you are a natural on film! I hate myself so generally tend to stay behind the camera. ;)

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:17 pm

      Thanks so much Katie!! That means a lot coming from you. I must say, it didn’t feel very natural!! It was so weird looking back over it! Maybe it will get better with time! ;) x

    I always get excited when I see a video blog, just breaks up my reading for the day, plus it gives me more of an insight to who I am reading. Well done for being brave enough to go for it! Really enjoyed your answers, I can totally relate to wanting to go back to be with the grandparents. #Twinkly Tuesday

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:32 pm

      Ha! It’s so funny isn’t it? I’ve always loved watching other people but have never had the confidence to do it myself before! :) I’m happy to be tagged to do this — it’s made me broaden my horizons a little bit! x

  7. 12th May 2015 / 11:27 am

    I’ve been tagged for this one, really need to find time to actually do some youtubing! Fab answers, I’d choose flying as well, I think mind reading could be dangerous!

      Yay! I can’t wait to see you answers Stevie :) It’s always lovely to see other bloggers talking — it really gives you a sense of the person behind the blog :)

  8. 12th May 2015 / 12:35 pm

    Well done on your first ever vlog! I cant see me ever being able to vlog im such a whimp.
    also well done with answering the questions, there is some tricky ones in there. You did brilliantly #TwinklyTuesday

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:37 pm

      Aww thanks SO much Lianne!! I bet you’d be able to do it — I didn’t think I’d be able to either but I managed! :) Give it a go!! x

  9. 12th May 2015 / 1:56 pm

    Fair play to you for going ahead with it. #TwinklyTuesday

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:38 pm

      Haha! Thanks so much Fionnuala! I’ve never been able to turn down a challenge ;) x

  10. 12th May 2015 / 2:18 pm

    What a fun set of questions! I don’t see myself vlogging any time soon, but it is nice to put a physical voice with the writer’s voice! Several of my blog friends, on meeting me in person, commented that they were completely surprised to discover that I had an American accent despite growing up in the UK. #TwinklyTuesday

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:49 pm

      It’s such a good set of questions isn’t it?! I really enjoyed answering them — although I think, with hindsight, perhaps I should have practiced the answers before I started filming!! LOL! :)

  11. 12th May 2015 / 2:31 pm

    Great answers and fab vlogging! You looked very calm, I always look really nervous on camera! #twinklytuesdays x

    • 12th May 2015 / 4:47 pm

      Thanks so much Rachel! I was really calm when I was filming it, funnily enough, but super nervous when I watched it back!! ;)

  12. 12th May 2015 / 2:33 pm

    What a fun experience! I am so fond of the written word, it’s hard for me to imagine including a video (of myself, anyway) on my blog – but you did fabulously.

      Thanks SO much Katey!! Me too — I LOVE the written word — but it was nice to do something different. SO weird to see myself on camera though!! ;)

  13. 12th May 2015 / 6:58 pm

    Hehe, such a great vlog Caro. Some of the questions you can see you are seriously thinking about. I love watching videos when I’ve met the person in real life and I can see you’re just the same, fab! xx

    • 14th May 2015 / 8:14 pm

      So weird isn’t it?! I love watching other people vlogging too! Not so sure I like myself on camera though!! I wish I’d read the questions and thought about the answers a little bit before I started! Must remember to do my homework next time!! ;)

  14. 12th May 2015 / 9:36 pm

    It’s great to see how you are in person (kind of!) and some of the questions were quite bizarre weren’t they? Makes it more interesting though! #twinklytuesday

    • 14th May 2015 / 8:15 pm

      Thanks so much Carolyn! Yes! The questions were funny!! Made for good vlogging though I guess! :)

  15. 12th May 2015 / 9:46 pm

    A fab effort with your first vlog post. I found myself answering them before you did, and then checking what you said. You made it look easy. I enjoyed watching. #twinmlytuesday

    • 14th May 2015 / 8:17 pm

      Aah thanks Nicola! :) It didn’t feel easy at the time!! It felt very weird talking to myself!! :) Really nice to know that you enjoyed it! I’ll pretend I’m talking to you the next time I do one :) x

  16. 12th May 2015 / 10:05 pm

    This is fab! Like others have said, you are great in front of the camera. More vlogs please!
    Jemma x

  17. 13th May 2015 / 9:56 am

    Well done on your first vlog! You did so well, they are really tough questions! :) Thanks for hosting #TwinklyTuesday such a fun linky xx

    • 14th May 2015 / 8:20 pm

      Thanks Becky! I’m (almost) looking forward to the next one ;)

  18. 16th May 2015 / 10:04 am

    Thank you SO much!! It was such a weird thing to do but I’m so glad I took the plunge!! :) Try it — you may surprise yourself and end up being the next vlogging star!! :)

  19. 17th May 2015 / 9:36 pm

    Caro, I love, love, LOVE this video. You are gorgeous. I adored your answer to being over dressed. Please come to Britmums wearing glitter, sequins and diamanté. I would love that. I adore you even more now, beautiful lady. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    • 19th May 2015 / 10:08 am

      Aaah Lucy!! thanks SO much :) I *might* give my ‘Hilary’ jacket an airing!! LOL! The sparkliest, most glittery thing you’ll ever see in your life!! ;)
