I read "Theme Day #2 is Monday, June 17, the day everyone in the event is challenged to create a video post." My first impulse was: Run! This, of course, meant that I needed to at least try. Fortunately, at age 60, I am mostly past embarrassment.
We don't have to participate in any theme day but this is something that intrigued me. I am not a video maker, except, accidentally when I accidentally turn iPhone photos into videos because the two controls are so close to each other.
But many of my fellow bloggers do video posts. And, Blogger does make it easy if you have videos up on YouTube.
So here is my video debut, as I show off some of my front yard. You'll hear my thick Bronx accent for the first time.
I finally got this up on YouTube after about 5 takes (two in light rain) and a long struggle. Let's put it this way: even Steven Spielberg had a first time. (My deep gratitude to my spouse, who put up with me running in and out the front door.)
As they say "It was a learning experience". Later this week, I'll tell you what I learned in the experience.
Have you done video work? What was your "first time" like?
