April 12th, 2020 // Status Report // Vlog
I had to create some vlogs for class, as discussed in my last post. They’re a bit rough – I had some editing software issues and I’m a beginning, so . . .
I tried to take some of the pressure off myself by having the first two vlogs act as “disclaimer” videos. Just clearing the air about my fears regarding social media and what exactly took me so long to get to this point.
I’m uploading them on here instead of youtube for two reasons: I just paid for my domain for another year, so why not? And I’m scared of the culture surrounding youtube these days. I’d rather “play it safe” and stay in my own corner of the internet.
If I blow up, wow. I’ll be amazed forever. I’m not that interesting.
For my professor’s sake, I’m embedding both vlogs in this post. If you guys have any content you’d like to see from me, please tell me. I really don’t want to leave this class and never make video content again. I started to like it . . .
Anyways, here we go:
Social Media Fears/Intro Vid Part 2
Also: sorry for filming in portrait mode. Still finding my way.
Now, of course, you may be asking “What do this mean for your blog?”
I will still write blog posts because I enjoy writing. Blogging is more and more therapeutic these days, given how we are all currently quarantined. As far as creating weekly vlogs, I can’t promise anything for right now. I was really hoping to use Adobe Premiere and create some bomb videos (even if I was only in one room the entire time), but having my computer overheat and glitch while editing also keeps me down to about four minutes a vlog. This can totally become a status report, I’m definitely aware, but I’m still a fan of the good ole’ written blog post.
Now, if I can figure out some of theme for my vlogs and create a focal point for my vlogging content, that would be great. That’s what I’m hoping to do and I’m really excited to get some of these ideas I have turned into videos. I can always reattempt a poorly executed video idea when I have better equipment, but I need to make that first video, ya know?
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
Please stay safe!
