In this video I was going for a simple introduction into my website. The video should tell a little bit about me and what I want. I wanted it to be short and sweet so that it would keep a persons attention. I know I’m not the best when it comes to videos and I definitely do not have a great space for recording in my home so I wanted it to be as painless as possible for myself to record and for people to listen to.
It took a few tries but I did get a video that covered the topics that I wanted and didn’t sound too nervous. I said my name, what I do, and what I want. It is surprisingly difficult to remember what you want to say and feel comfortable when in front of a camera. It took a few tries for me to loosen up a bit and even then I definitely don’t have the same quality or confidence that I do in real life.
If I were to do something differently next time, I would probably try to figure out a way to make the transition into the beginning and end of the video more fluid. I was pretty nervous which caused me to jump into the lines and quickly try to close the video when I finished. I’d should have probably paused before and after I was done to make it seem more natural.
I personally don’t think vlogging is for me. I’ve actually kind of made it a point to stay off the internet as much as possible. I don’t have any social media accounts and I don’t think I’m going to be the next hit vlogger in town so I think I’ll just quit while I’m ahead. It might be good to practice speaking in front of a camera more often so that I can get comfortable doing so, but in the end, I think I’d rather talk to people in person instead.
