For those who don’t know, I have experimented a little with vlogging already (check out the videos embedded along the side of this post). However as much as I’d like to create whiteboard animations of my posts, I simply don’t have the time or rather, I have the time but also have many other exciting projects on the go.
I did not want to let go of vlogging (videoblogging) itself and in an effort to conserve time- as the making of the videos would be considerably quicker- I wrestled with the uncomfortable idea of putting myself in front of the camera. With conflicting voices in my head: “Shur look at yer wan, notions of herself, she has” and ‘Shur, yill not plough a field by turning it over in yer mind,” I struggled with the idea of simultaneously looking conceited (for putting myself on camera) and looking like an eejit. But then I thought, sure everyone’s a conceited eejit nowadays, that’s why facebook and twitter are such successes, I’ll only be jumping on the bandwagon. Sooooo readers, the field is ploughed, I’ve vlogged.
I don’t think it’s the end of whiteboard animation for me and I know I’ll return to it occasionally in the future but in the meantime here is the first of Olivia Bright’s Vlog Adventures:
