A friend has been pushing me for years to start vlogging on YouTube. I have resisted since, in my own opinion, I am much better with the written word than public speaking. However, I recently sat down and tried it. Nothing fancy - no special equipment, such as pictured here. No ideal background or special effects. I simply put my old iPhone on a selfie stick and hit record.
When I think about why blogging became such a chore, the first thing that comes to mind is the editing process. Regardless of how many times I tell myself the posts do not have to be perfect, I can't get that concept out of my head.
With videos, however, there is no script. Besides knowing what I am going to talk about, I just wing it. For this first attempt, I took a few takes and chose the best one - and voila! It was a quick and easy way for me to share some information.
Anyway, here is the first video posted to my YouTube Channel. Check it out and let me know what you think. If you like it, please subscribe. I will continue to post about life in South Florida, teaching, and things I enjoy.
