on a video blog (AKA: my wicked attempt at using iMovie)...

20SB video blogging day, oh-nine. from wishcake on Vimeo.



Here is my post for
20SB's Video Blogging Day! I was sort of at a loss for anything witty and insightful to say - but what I expressed in the video is true. (And not just the part about craving taquitos.) I think it's wonderful for us to have a place to get to know other twenty-something bloggers, and to be "discovered" yourself! If you haven't yet joined, I definitely recommend it.

It's rather delightful, if I do say so myself.

  1. I just need to say that your subtitles are the best, and I think we started and FELL in love with LOST at the same time.

    Tell me where you are! We need to discuss!

  2. you ALWAYS make me smile :)

    i like this: "and to be "discovered" yourself!"

    if i may, i'd like to say, perhaps, also to discover yourself. yes?

    deep, i know.

    happy video blog day!

  3. Aww, you're so cute! And I really adore that scarf! Yay for cute scarves! And random side note -- I like your hair pulled back! More cuteness! And exclamation points! Natch! ;)

  6. You are too cute!

    I also refuse to say the word vlog. I much prefer video blog.

  7. Cute, love your subtitles. I wonder if there is a 30 something blogging community because I can't keep up with you 20 something's! I am OLD.

  8. So very cute. I kind of like this video blogging thing. It helps you to get to know the person behind the text a tiny bit better (like how you move your hands when your at a loss for words, yes, I noticed!). But I adore it. You gave me motivation to do one of my own... one day.

    Great job though! I LOVE IT!

  9. The screen cap on this video is so awesome. And I love the subtitles. I wonder if I'll make my own when I get home, except without subtitles because I'm not cool though to have an editing program.

    On the Online BFFs note? You are one of mine, definitely. Online Soulmate. BUT! (Big but!) You are also rapidly becoming a Real-Life-BFF, and that makes me so so so happy!

  10. All the cool kids refuse to do their hair for video blog day. They also insist on being incredibly awkward. You and I win for being the cool kids today.

    LOVE YOU!

  11. I video blogged for the first time a couple of days ago. Not for the 20SB's video blog-whatever-it-is. I just did one because I wanted to do one.

    And I'm sorry to say that I did use the word "vlog". I don't like the word, I just had to say it, just once. I promise I'll never use it again.

  12. You wanna know what I love? Aside from you? That your forehead is cut off the entire time.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Gosh you seem so, so cool, and nice.

    Oh, and Lost is the best show on television:)

    And 'moist' made me laugh out loud.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You are adorable and I wish my voice didn't sound so RIDICULOUS on video, or I'd participate.

    20SB for life! Or at least our twenties...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Too sweet- I'm definitely on the same page as you for the word blogosphere and being highly awkward/not believing that ANYONE else would participate.

    Except that I adore the word vlog because it's so awkward and creepy and kind of perfectly captures what it feels like to put a video up online lol For me =)

    ReplyDelete
  16. great vlog (definitely sounds dirty). and super cute subtitles. they rocked my world today :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. THIS MAKES ME MISS YOU SO MUCH!!! AH! I adore you. And also refuse to say the word 'vlog'

    ReplyDelete
  18. Um, adorable! And "moist" so does sound dirty...

    ReplyDelete
  19. AH! I hate the word moist tooooo!

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's really cool to not just see your picture, but also see you talk and hear your voice!
    Thanks for vlogging :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great video and you expressed yourself well! I loved your little anecdotes at the bottom, too!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh! Your Video Blog entry was so cute! Mine was much less classy (like actually. Even the vimeo screen shot is pretty horrible) but hurrah for taking part! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yaaay! (Also: you are the cutest.)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Such a sweetie you are! I hate seeing myself on video. You are great at it though! =)Your scarf is adorable too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. HaHa... love the subtitles. I'll be in southern california in November, we must get coffee, or tea, or taquitos, except I"m a vegetarian so that last one might now work out...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Everyone looks so great in their vlog, was just about to record one but now I'm gonna shower and dress properly first before I do :p

    You look really sweet :) and I know what you mean about the word vlog kinda sounds dirty, its fun to say though :p

    ReplyDelete
  27. i hate the word vlog with the burning fire of a thousand suns. also, the word moist. yuck.

    you're adorable. love the scarf :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. This was such a great idea, I'm so lame for not participating - haha.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nicely Done! Love the captions!

    ReplyDelete
  30. you are adorable.end of story...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Damn it, I had hoped you weren't really as cute and pretty as you looked in still pictures, but you ARE. You ARE. How dare you!

    I think this is one of my favorite videos today. Simple (not that the more complicated ones were bad!) but funny and sweet and honest. The text along the bottom made me smile and were perfect.

    I, too, hate the word vlog. I often say it as v-log to mitigate its icky, but the alternative isn't much better. Another great word along with blogosphere, I've found, is blogopolis.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You're ridiculously cute.
    Like a baby penguin.

    Don't judge me. I had to get up at some ungodly hour to move a couch today.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Stop being so ridiculously cute. Just stop it. Haha, just kidding.

    Vlog just reminds me of the word log. The v is such a minor part in the word. Then again, the word log reminds me of the '5 little speckled frogs sitting on a hollow log' song, so now the word annoys me too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. your captions made me giggle. also? i want that scarf.

    please move to new jersey ASAP. MISS YOU pretty girl!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yep your video blog was amazing. I love your scarf, and your little side glances, and the adorable hand motions you did too. So we must start planning our super fun day of Hanson and wine and other exciting things. Maybe we can even have taquitos!

    ReplyDelete

  45. Hahaha, thank you for making me laugh. Those are the best subtitles EVER. And Lost, yes, that is the show we're on now and so obsessed! (ps, how are we always watching the same show?)

    ...pussywillow.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I was cracking up watching this because it reminded me of Pop-Up Video on VH1, only in an adorably funny kind of way.

    Isn't Lost THE BEST!? I missed the most recent season because I was busy watching the first four, so I cannot WAIT for it to come out on DVD! Welcome to the Island! lol :)

  48. The still is an amazing shot. I love your adoreable face.

    Oh and the video is cute.

    And your captions made me giggle.

  49. 1. I miss reading your blogs. I haven't had much blog reading time lately, and after reading the 3 posts of yours that I missed, it made me realize that I can never cut Wishcake out of my life. Not even on accident.

    2. Move to the east side? PlzKThx.

    ReplyDelete
  50. You're too cute. And your voice totally matches your face. You know, sometimes you get so used to reading or seeing someone, and then you hear words come out of their mouth and you're like, whoa! That ain't right! But your voice is perfectly suited for you. (And I think I sounds slightly stalkerish right now. I'm not a serial killer, pinky swear.)

    ReplyDelete
