114 weeks and 2 days | Getting to know me | A vlog

A couple of weeks ago I did my first vlog (video blog for those of you not up to date with this new social media lingo).

Not sure it was something I felt entirely comfortable with but — lo and behold — I’ve just done another one!

My friend Aby has teamed up with the lovely Amy, who blogs at Mr and Mrs T Plus Three, and they’ve just started a ‘vlog’ linky. Basically it’s a chance to join in each month and answer some simple questions —in the form of moving pictures  — rather than just typing the answers out.

This month’s topic is ‘Getting To Know Me’.

Here are the questions:

  1. Introduce yourself, tell us a bit about your family
  2. Tell us the story behind your blog name?
  3. How long have you been blogging/vlogging for?
  4. Why do you like vlogging?
  5. How regularly do you vlog?
  6. What’s a fav vlog you’ve made so far and why?
  7. What do you use to film your vlogs?
  8. How much effort goes into filming and editing each vlog?
  9. Do you have a favourite vlogger?
  10. What would be your dream brand collaboration?
  11. If you could only blog OR vlog from now on, which would you chose?
  12. Tell us a funny story about you!

I still find the the ‘vlogging’ idea a really strange one and have no idea why anybody would want to watch me babbling away for a minute — let alone 12! But hey.

It’s a weird old concept isn’t it?

That said, I quite enjoyed watching this back. Apologies in advance for my ‘funny story’. I did ask Dickie whether I should have kept it in but as he said, ‘it was almost 20 years ago and everyone has a Bridget Jones moment in their lives don’t they?’.

Ahem. *blushing* So here it is.

NB: I just want to add something to answer 8.

Effort for filming and editing this little film was minimal — uploading to YouTube on the other hand?? 2 days.

2 days? Really.

Now I know we live in the countryside but you’d expect upload speeds to be a little quicker in this day and age.  Perhaps if I start next month’s Vlog Stars offering now, I *might* just have it uploaded in time.
