This week I listened to the Tim Ferriss podcast (as I usually do). Tim interviewed Shay Carl. I had never heard of him - but many people have. Shay is a Video blogger. He has a YouTube channel that has over 2 billion views in total. He challenged Tim to "Vlog" - video blog.
Tim of course accepted the challenge and will Vlog for 30 days starting sometime before August 1.
As I listened I thought "There is no reason I can't do that". And so I will.
I thought about it for 2 days. What would I Vlog? Each day I came up with an answer. On Friday we went to Kroger and bought 12 12 packs of YooHoo for Day Camp. We had a kid from Wales loading it in our cart. He had no idea what YooHoo was.
On Saturday we hiked 5 miles on the hike bike trail. We went to the Lego Store in the Kenwood Town Center.
These things are perfect for a Vlog.
Other ideas: A daily Vlog of the preparation for a speech contest.
When do I start?
Target date for first official post is tomorrow. I'm starting on a one week business trip. It's not that I worry about material, it's just that I don't want it to be a primary concern as I'm learning the tools (filming, editing and uploading). Material will be plentiful if I start with a flight to Charleston SC tomorrow.
What about this blog?
It stays. It may be text, it may be a link to the Vlog. No reason I can't kill two birds with one stone.
