Some of you know that I used to spend a lot of time over on YouTube. I really enjoy editing video (though I've not done it in eons) and interacting with the YouTube community, but I've not made it a priority in the last two years for a gazillion reasons. That's not to say that I don't keep up with my old YouTube friends. We stay connected on twitter and facebook and various blog posts. I even "meetup" with them in real life when the opportunity presents itself.

Last night a YouTube friend, Mugglesam, suggested (via a twitter dm conversation) that I try doing a daily vlog for the month of October. Talk about the news -  make it current, using tags that are likely to show up in searches - from a Mom's perspective. A mommy vlog. Evidently YouTube (the big "G") has made it known that they're interested in content for the Mommy Blogging community. I'm a mom. I also blog.... Albeit, I'm a divorced mom. Living in Berkeley. So my perspective might be skewed in that direction.

These videos are going to be pretty raw for a few reasons. First, I don't know how to use Imovie9 (yet) and editing is impossible. So - they'll be pretty much one-take one-sided conversations with myself (hahaha). Also, It's at the end of the day - I look tired (because I am) and I don't wear makeup (usually) and I'm not going to put it on for a video. So, there's that. Don't judge. You look tired at the end of the day too.

I'm not going to post all the videos here (in case it's not your thing) but here's the intro if you're interested. We'll see how it goes.


  1. Vlogtober... great idea (and I guess I already blew it by not vlogging today!).

    My dislike of iMovie 9 is one of the main reasons I've refused to upgrade my MacBook. iMovie 06 HD was the best release, and I don't see any way I can live without it.

  2. Good luck with Vlogtober.

    (I love your blog layout by the way.)

  3. What tips would you give younger YouTubers on starting Vlogtober? :)
