Vlog about the Blog





I enjoyed listening to the conversation at Courtney N at Perfect Imperfections's blog series on blogging - some people loved the posts, a few people didn't like the negative tone but I think as bloggers it's something that most of us like to read, talk and blog about. I also read a post recently on Harper's Happenings on blogging that I felt was really encouraging! Then there was this heartfelt honest post from Courtney K on The Mommy Matters and as I wrote a comment almost as long as her blog post I knew I just couldn't help myself anymore! But wanting to do a thoughtful blog post and finding the time to sit down and put something coherent together are two totally different things (another reason why I have a photography blog!) So while I was waiting in carpool the other day I used my cellphone video camera to begin a vlog post about blogging. 

So here you go - my Vlog about the Blog! I tell you what, there is nothing like a vlog (especially self hand-held on a cell phone) to make a mama feel insecure about her appearance! And you can also see a peek into my overflowing laundry area!! I hope you'll look past that to hear my heart and be encouraged! 

If you'd like to guest-post about blogging - maybe some helpful tips on blogging or why you love to blog - I'd love to have you!






If you've got questions for me I'd love to respond to those via the comments or email.

So nice to hear your story and put a voice with the face of "Faith". Have a great day.

I don't believe in being overly negative. Sure, if you're having a bad day and want to say your peace to the rest of the world, and it's easier than typing, by all means. It does bring your readers down if there's too much, though. I do LOVE it when bloggers vlog, about anything. I have the opportunity to get to know them better and I get to hear them. I adored your vlog. You are so cute!

It's fun to put a voice to you, Faith! These vlogs are great, lots of good points!

Amber said...

Thanks Faith!!

Some days, I wonder why I do it, but like you I just keep plugging along. I always remind myself of why I do it. When I forget, I just ask my husband and he reminds me.

Thanks for the encouragement. And like Mandy, it is nice to put a face with a name.

GREAT posts! :) Love that you did it in the carpool line, too. Hehe. Makes you seem like a "real" person. Thanks for the shoutout. And your points on persistence are so great. I definitely needed that reminder.
