My First Vlog Post

I'm still learning how to use the iMovie editor and YouTube. It's also pretty hard to become comfortable in front of the camera - but so far the vlog has been fun to create. It's always a bit scary to put yourself out there and try something new, but I truly believe that if you do what you love then opportunities will present themselves to better your life... so here's to hoping for something good in the near future - hopefully making money and traveling will be involved :)

Check out the following email I sent to some of my friends. I would love some participation!

Hi guys,

I'm trying something new and starting a project for Global Tumbleweed.

I'm interested in all the transitions many of you are going through - new job, new city, new plans - it's been a busy year for all of us and I want to use this as a chance to reconnect regardless of the fact that everyone is all over the place.

Send me a video clip - as many as you want -of a nice moment in your week. I see all the Instagram shots and Facebook posts of cool shit you're doing - so just take a couple seconds to video record (horizontally preferred) on your smartphone. Then email, iMessage or Whatsapp it to me (over wi-fi only, please!) It may even be faster than writing an email.

You may already have a video you want to share! I know I have so many Mokey videos. Send me something nice/funny/inappropriate from that road trip, vacation, or walk to the office you just took. The clip can include you or not, have audio or a voice over, you can address me or just include a scenery shot- just make a little more use of your camera.

I would love to find a way to incorporate it into my vlog. I will be doing my best to post every two weeks and the videos will only be a few minutes long. I would love to include at least two clips that are not my own. I'll be posting for about 3 months (6-8 posts) until I start my new assignment at the end of January.

Some things I'm looking forward to sharing are my visits to a few more Australian cities, a music festival, a day in Fiji, Christmas in San Francisco, New Year's in Vail, and Mokey reunion in Maine. What about you?

My first post will be up after the weekend. Hopefully it will give you a better idea of what I'm trying to accomplish.

I hope this can be fun for you. I look forward to reconnecting - let's start some conversations :)
