My book spine poetry video is coming soon. I’ve been trying to balance reading and getting challenges in for the day of rather than backtracking. I really do want to finish that one though, so I should be up soon. Instead I did today’s challenge which is Literary Book Travels. Basically pick literary locations you would want to travel to. I had so many different places I wanted to go, but for the sake of sanity just ended up picking Dan Brown’s mystery books. He has so many different places that are rich in history as his main locations, and they’re all places I want to go to. If I had more time would have illustrated some places and maybe animated them. There’s also the potential to create some travels based around fictional worlds like Narnia & Hogwarts. I’ll have to leave that for another week though. Till then I need to read more, only one more day left of this readathon!
Yay finished with the road trip vlog. I still have some other things I want to make related to the trip, but the vlog is done!
I had fun. Learned a few things from this past week when it comes to vlogging here’s 5 of them.
Lesson one: Do not vlog with gum in my mouth. Really distracting and gross.
Lesson two: Pay attention to where your fingers are.
Lesson three: I need to be more energetic while talking to the camera. That’s probably because I’m camera shy. Working on that.
Lesson four: Always make sure you have enough space to record.
Lesson five: I need to invest in a tripod. And a better camera. Vlogging on my iphone is a little hard because of the limited space I have.
I have plans to do VEDA. In the meantime I have other things to work on to prep for the upcoming month, like backing up my computer and cleaning up my files. I have a lot of files I do not need on here. Till tomorrow, here’s the last vlog.
I also have a playlist if you want to watch the entire vlog series, or if you want to catch up.
This is my vlog from the other day. I’m still editing yesterday’s vlog, but I’ll be caught up soon here. Just been a bit tired from the vacation. We packed in a lot of fun this past week, and now I have to get caught up on some personal projects as well as prep for the upcoming week. Here’s the vlog. Hope you enjoy, I’m having a lot of fun editing videos again.
We went down to Ojo Caliente for today. Was an interesting day going through a mud bath and enjoying hot springs with rocks in the bottom. I had a relaxing day and didn’t film much because water vs cameras equals bad. Hope you enjoy the timelapses I made of our trip there and back though. I’m really having fun with them.
I’m thinking I might do VEDA (Vlog Every Day April) now that I’ve got a bit of a format down, although will be changing it up eventually. I’m finding it difficult to get time to myself to really have more conversational topic vlogs. I’ll likely change to that format when I get home since I work at home and don’t go out too much.
Made it through another day of vlogging. Sorry this one is a bit late. I finished it at 1 AM and decided that I wanted to sleep instead of wait for it to upload to Youtube.
It was a fun hiking trip. I enjoyed being able to hike again, although my mother did not mentally prepare me for the sharp drops that we were hiking up. I expected a hike, but not one quite as steep as we went up. It was a lot of fun, very exhausting, but fun. We proceeded to follow this up with a huge dinner of pizza.
I’m pleased I’m making headway on my video goals since it’s been awhile since I’ve tackled that. It’s also nice trying to remember to keep track of my day to day and learning to put a quick narrative together for this story skillset I’m working on.
Anyway, I’ll elaborate on my trip and feelings about vlogging when I get home. I have a ton of photos and video I didn’t get to for edits today so more things will trickle out as time goes by.
And now, the vlog. More soon!
Practicing those timelapse skills today. I’m really in love with watching Casey Neistat’s videos so I thought it was time to test vlogging. I want to make other types to videos, but I have to start somewhere, so vlogging a trip seems like the best idea. Hope that you like this. I’ll have another one up tomorrow.
