#VideoChallenge: Our Differences


Day #4 of the 30-Day Video Challenge. Sorry I missed Day #3. It’s not that I couldn’t squeeze in shooting the short video during the busy conference day, it’s that I couldn’t squeeze in the 30-60 minutes it takes to upload it to WordPress.

So, though I’ve blown the challenge, I’m going to push on and hopefully improve my vlogging skills.

Last night, as I sat in my friend (and OWFI President,) Patty Stith’s room, chatting and laughing with other friends after the “official” conference was over, I found myself, as usual, wishing I could be as funny as my other friends are. My humor comes like sprinkles of rain after a long drought. It made me deeply miss my dear, funny friends, Ruth Weeks and Pamela Foster — I knew I’d miss them when they told us that previous commitments would keep them from attending the conference.

So, after last night, I decided to focus today’s video on how sometimes we all wish we were different. What have you wished was different about you?

    HI, I wrote a post on “Uncomfortable Things” in the Blog Every Day in May Challenge, and I included a link to your post on stepping out of your comfort zone.
    Keep on going…a day late doesn’t matter to your readers.

    Hi cousin Jan! In event of fire, most people think of grabbing their most valuable possession, family photos. Darn … novel speaks of deliberately burning treasured family photos to minimize suspicion during WWII. How heart wrenching was that? Obviously they were loyal to America; yet thousands were imprisoned on allegation. No proof.

    Just days to settle affairs and relocate, to me it doesn’t seem like short time frame would even have been possible.

    I like ice bucket tripod!

    Colorful orange and professional background pops. It enhances you as well as black top and necklace. Nothing in background distracts. I like how you walk into scene and conclude showing us your interesting set up. Great video!

    You, your mom and grandmother are beautiful.

      Hi Randy! Boy, I need to keep up my comments. I just found your “unapproved” comment. Thank you for your comments on my stage and production. 🙂 I didn’t make it through the 30-day challenge because it was too difficult to keep watching myself on video. -)

    I’ve heard we have to do things twenty-one times before they become natural! I would encourage you to do a couple more challenges, even if they’re really short 45 second spots. Easy for me to say! It seems like a very productive exercise.
