This Shopping Haul was from various stores this time. I went to Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, the Real Canadian Superstore, Dollar Tree and Claire’s.
I actually was pushed by my son to do the post as a video. He thought it would be easier to just talk about the stuff, rather than try to type about it all. I started worrying about things like lightning, tripods, backdrop, editing and all other sorts of things. I have never made a video before. He said to me; “Mom, if you worry about all that stuff, you wont ever have a video, your video will take 6 months to make. Don’t care so much about it being perfect, and just do it. If you don’t, you will never do it, which is probably why you have never bothered in the past.”, and then went to go play some video games.
I thought on this, and it is true, I was getting worried about details. So I just up and tried to make a video. I realized about 40 minutes later(37 of that being the video), that I would have to make some adjustments. Like talking less, and taping on something other than my husbands tablet.
Luckily, I have an ipod touch, which surprisingly takes super awesome video. Second attempt under way, and I managed to make a shorter(though still 15 minutes long) video.
I realize this isn’t the best video known to man. There are many things I have already learned just from this experience. Hopefully you guys enjoy it, you can see a little bit of my personality in there.
I say uh and ummm too much, which I don’t do even when public speaking, so I must have been nervous. I also feel like I don’t actually sound like that, could be the ipod, how it picks my voice up. I mumbled too, so another thing I will try to change in the future. I obviously am not afraid to show my face, as you all have seen it many times now on the blog. I just didn’t have a decent backdrop, nor do I own a tripod. I think I will stick to this birdseye view until i figure something for that, which means only the shopping haul posts will be like this I think.
Well that is it for now. If you are interested in my first failed attempt video, where I blabber on for like ever, out of focus, I will be uploading that sometime soon. It needs a heck of a long time to upload, so I will probably do it overnight. It’s funny, which is why I didn’t delete it. I’ll try to figure out how to post it to open with link only, so just you guys will enjoy it, haha.
