I started blogging at the end of April after realizing that vlogging was not for me. I started vlogging last fall after a friend from high school talked to me about her experiences about vlogging. She loved it and thought I would too. I was highly interested and did some research about it. I had been involved in drama productions in high school and was part of a drama company for three years back in 1999, so I'm thinking, it shouldn't be that hard. Boy, was I wrong. Talking to a camera is so much different than delivering lines on stage. First of all, with acting, I am a different person and don't feel so exposed. Second, a live audience gives you energy from their laughter and responses. I find it completely different.
My friend then suggested blogging. I feel so much more comfortable with blogging. Being in front of a camera is hard work, I find. Then I need to think of what I'm saying and it doesn't come out right, because I have a slight speech impediment. After I record a blog then I need to edit it. Ahhhh! Good editing takes a long time. Also, all these programs and software are new to me because the last education I got in computers was in 2002 were we studied Microsoft Office 2000. My computer skills are 17 years out of date.
Editing a document is a breeze compared to video. However, there still is a lot to learn about blogging. To be continued next Thursday.
What do you think of me posting twice a week? Is it too much? Don't forget to like and share.
