OK, I did it- I talked about my Pump Purchase Anxiety and I VLOGGED about it!
First Off, I hope that by sharing about my particular anxiety, I’ll find I’m not alone. GOD, I hope I'm not alone!
And secondly- I also overcame my fear of Vlogging – it wasn’t the talking on camera part that made me nervous (I can talk to a wrong number for 20 minutes) it was the technical aspect of putting it all together that I feared. Tech fear, CONQUERED…for the most part ;)
Now there are some issues with my first Vlog- I forgot to increase the font size in the opening and it’s really tiny. I didn’t notice that fact until after I had compressed the footage and uploaded it on YouTube– I apologize. On a positive note, I learned something and will know better for my next Vlog.
Also- I was trying in doing a one shot take with no cuts, while maintaining eye contact, except of course when I looked at the screen, or the keyboard, or the cars driving by.
It's so weird to have a camera in your computer- looking at the keyboard and looking at the camera simultaneously is difficult. I succeeded for the most part, but I did forget to mention a few peoples names at one point and for that I’m TRULY sorry. AGAIN- next time it will be better.
And I'm filming outside- and it was 86 degrees and humid. AND I'm all types of sweaty!
So here’s the Vlog- let me know what you think!
