on my first video blog...



Video blogging? Why not. from wishcake on Vimeo.

Yeah, so, please ignore the fact that the screenshot they decided to capture for this video makes me look like I've consumed more than my share of alchoholic beverages and am most likely going to be slurring my words for the entirety of this video blog. It's misleading. It's disturbing. But, it's my first one, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to change the Creepy McCreeperson screenshot, so don't judge me. (Thanks, Wendy, for helping me out with changing the screenshot! Booyah. This one is way better. Still not perfect, but better than drunk-face. Anyway.)

Also, let the records show that my husband did, indeed, give me a look of judgement when I told him I wanted to use his laptop to video blog. But that's okay, because I'm sure I'd give him that same look of judgement if I found him on the couch one day, video blogging his little heart out.

So, we're even.

(I am going to have to figure out how to use his laptop, though. My camera flat out refuses to take more than a couple minutes of video. What if I wanted to go on a political rant? What if I wanted to tell you every detail of my day? What if I wanted to serenade you with my version of the "Elephant Love Medley" from Moulin Rouge? WHAT THEN?)

Enjoy the madness.

  6. Cute! I never know what to say when on camera -slash- being recorded. But this didn't seem awkward at all!

  7. Okay, you're a doll! And your hair? Umm, I'm just the tiniest bit jealous of it's fabulousness.

    Justin gave me a little "Hmm, how IIIIINTERSTIIIIING..." comment when I told him I wanted to do a video blog because I always gave him so much crap for being a computer geek. Apparently, I am now officially one too. :)

  8. Oh, it's so fun to see my online friends!

    I've seen fifty billion pictures of you, but to see and hear you is SO COOL. (At this point, I'm feeling like a total stalker - I'll be honest.)

    You may have just inspired me to do a video blog as well! (And I know Mike will give me hell for it. When I say "my online friend said..." I get the look of judgement as well. :) We must stick together, us blogging-wives-with-husbands-who-don't-get-it.

  9. Oh my gosh! Adorable! Please tell me you are going to participate in my video blog challenge!!!!!! I'm sure your elephant love medley from moulin rouge would win hands down!

  10. Oh, my word, the last thing I want to do is post a video of my talking head! Am I the only one who cringes at the sound of her recorded voice? A two-minute limit would be an act of mercy for me.

    You, on the other hand, are adorable. I now (politely) demand video tours of your duplex. Thank you very much.

  11. That was fun. I love reading what you write and it's nice to hear your voice. I was very self conscious when I did my video blog. Using the webcam on the laptop makes it lots easier :) Can't wait to see your next one!

  12. Seriously you are too adorable! LOL. Video blogging is such a fun way to get to know other bloggers.

  13. You really are just so cute :) I'm way too scared to offer up my own vlog... like the others have noted... my voice recorded is awful. Like I'm a 10 yr old or something!

    Anyway, good job! Encore!

  14. oh i like it! fun to "meet you" in this way too:)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am not judging you, but video blogging is over the line for me : )

    I just watched a few seconds of yours (because I'm at work), but it's funny how serious you are. I would be dying laughing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. awesome! i love hearing someone - ya know? i've been thinking about doing a video blog myself. we'll see! good job! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. The moment you said "It's nice to meet you in this way" you totally broke my heart and made me laugh - I definitely enjoyed the test

    ReplyDelete
  18. oh, you're braveeeee. i've been thinking about trying the video blog for a while now, but i chicken out. you are the best ever, and it's nice to "meet you this way" too. totally made my day!

  24. Happy Etsyversary! I was just looking at your etsy shop and I noticed it says you joined one year ago today.

    ReplyDelete
  25. yay for you! you brave soul! (not that you would have anything to be afraid of)

    loved it!

    i just can't bring myself to do it. the sound of my voice is truly irritating.

    ReplyDelete
  26. A-DOR-A-BLE!!! Can I have your hair? Hmm... No? Ok fine.

    Love the video blog. I'm doing Ashley's video blog challenge... so I'm gonna have to do one of these very soon. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm going to pretend like I don't have a truckload of blackmail from the last eight years and say WE TOTALLY KNOW WHO YOU ARE NOW. I mean, more than we already did from all the pictures and...that kind of stuff...that you've...posted...yeah...

    Has anyone ever told you that you look like Kristen Bell?

    Miss you. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love it and that is so so so cool!!! Wow. You are so cute! I would be scared to do that...way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You're brave! I totally think I sound ridonkulous on camera so I don't know if I'd ever get up the courage to videoblog. Cute though, I don't think you sounded like I thought you do, although I don't know what you sounded like in my head either. Adorable definitely!

    PS I totally have all the Moulin Rouge songs in my head now. Love that soundtrack!!

  30. you ARE adorable!

    can we do the elephant love medley together? i mean, seriously. can we? i'll let you be the girl, if you want... :)

    ReplyDelete

  32. You are so freakin' adorable :)
    I love it, keep up with the video blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  33. ah! you are so cute! and also, though this is creepy (but i'll be the first to admit my own creepiness) i feel like i have just met you for reals! it's like a celebrity or something. maybe like actually hearing your voice and seeing your facial expressions or something? i dunno. but its all very surreal and now i feel like i have a lot to digest thanks to your vlog.
    hmm.
    but hey- good job! way to put yourself WAY out there! keep 'em coming!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Okay, I so may have to try this whole video blog thing. I would judge myself harshly, but not to bad if you did it with meeee!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oooooh! That was definitely fun!

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's so crazy hearing everyone's voices for the first time! Great idea though. Very cute! I don't know if I have the guts to do it yet :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm not going to lie. Whenever I see that one of the bloggers I read has posted a video of him/herself, I cringe when I hit the play button, knowing that the version of them I hear in my head when I read will forever change. But for some reason, that didn't happen with you. You sound almost exactly like the person I hear in my head. I don't hear voices though. Promise.

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are so stinking cute!! I LOVE Moulin Rouge...can't watch that darn movie enough!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So glad you finally did it. It's changing the entire blogging experience! It's like a revolution. Will we ever type again?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Personally I liked the old screenshot better :) lol

    Our poor husbands need to have a beer and discuss their crazy blogging wives.

    ReplyDelete
  41. you are the cutest thing in the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD. aaaah! i love the video blog (because i don't like the word vlog)!! totally keep it up! you and courtney are totally tempting me to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have the hair envy too! I want your hair! Not in a stalkerish way though.Unfortunately, I have very dark brow hair that refuses to be any colour other than dark brown or black.

    Anyway! You video blog is good! Its a genius idea. You are very brave!

    (I'm sorry this post is a bit babblesome. Its 7am, and my sodding nieghbours have been playing LOUD dance music all night. On a weeknight. At times like this,I wish I liked coffee!)

  43. Very cool! I think it turned out great!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  45. You are too cute! I was just trying to figure out how to record video on my laptop last night so one will be coming from me too!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Hi. This was my first time stumbling across your page. My friend actually got me into this blog thing, so I'm a newcomer. However, I saw your video blog and have to tell you that you remind me so much of my cousin. Very cute. And I'm addicted to FRIENDS, so the Monica Gellar comment caught my attention right away.

    ReplyDelete
  50. You, my dear, are terribly adorable!

    I finally figured out who you remind me of! Your voice (and I know this sounds weird, but you have a great voice), your look, everything... Emily Van Camp from Brothers and Sisters!

    Anyway, keep with the vid blogging. It's fun to experiment.

  51. Video blogging...what a great idea!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I’d sweetie to refer to with that too!
