First Vlog

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your weekends :o) I made a decision about whether to stay with blogger or move over to WordPress based on the comments and my own experience with WordPress for a couple days. I made a nice little Vlog to tell you which I decided ;o)

BTW – pay no attention to the kitty in the background – Gracie, she decided she wanted her 15 minutes of fame too. This was my first attempt at this. I really tried to make it short, but there are a few um’s and ah’s.. couldn’t help that, of course.

So… *deep breath* Here you go!

Have a great rest of the weekend :o)

  1. I was with wordpress before, but definitely prefer blogger. It’s far more user friendly I think, at least for me since I am not a tech-expert.

  2. Aww look at you! Your first vlog, and its both right side up and full of light! Hehehe!

    Hi Erica πŸ™‚
    Thanks for sharing your first Vlog!
    I like your voice too. Well done!
    All the best,

  4. Look how cute you are!!

    I have yet to do a vlog. Maybe I should… I just need a good topic.

    LOVE the accent! πŸ˜‰

    I’m tempted to give this a shot too, but I’m a nervous nelly. πŸ˜‰

    Holy crap. At the end, I thought you said, “after you see my face, I hope you still want to f___ me.”
    I had to replay that part a couple times….
    Of course we still want to f___ you!
    I wish Blogger had better features but I like what they have over other blog types.

    “He loves the accent? What accent?” said the fellow Midwesterner.

    You are in the next generation vloging. Interesting stuff to do. Something to consider.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Tom Bailey

    Finally got to watch this Er – so serious! Good job though – nice to “hear” you. πŸ™‚

    And yeah, what accent? LOL

  10. Adam says:

    This whole “no accent” thing is rubbish! Stop listening to old people from your neighbourhood! πŸ˜€

    No matter where you’re from, you have one. πŸ˜‰


  11. Nice job on the Vlog! And I know you were concerned about the cat, but honestly, I had so much fun watching her scrunch into the quilt behind you (and then fall off the back of the couch), that it made the video that much more enjoyable.

    I’m with you … Blogger is the way to go.

    Oh, before I forget, thanks for signing up to follow my blog! I clicked to follow yours, too. πŸ™‚

  12. Yay! on your first vlog – you’re way ahead of me! πŸ™‚

  13. Melissa says:

    Hey, I didn’t even notice an accent! You did a nice job with your first vlog…not sure if I’ll ever be brave enough to try. My southern accent is horrible, so I KNOW I would get comments on it:)

  14. Erica says:

    LW – I totally agree, blogger is much more user friendly!

    Frankie – ;o) I remembered the rules…LOL Well some of them. I’m kind of a fast talker and babbler. Yours are good I love them outside – no matter what we’re supposed to do!

    RK – Aw thank you!

    Mel – You’re too sweet, thank you. Yes do one! It’s not that bad, I had to make sure I had on good clothes and makeup…LOL ;o)

  15. Erica says:

    Adam – Accent? LOL You should! It’s always nice to put a face/voice with the blog. I think anyway ;o)

    Andrew- LOL OMG, guess I should have slowed down there at the end! I wish the templates were easier myself. Thanks ;o)

    Emily – :o) I know. We don’t have one! LOL

    Tom – It’s totally weird, but a bit addictive… You’re welcome :o)

  16. Erica says:

    Jamie – Thank you! Yeah. who’s got an accent? *looks around*

    Adam – I can see your point, really ;o)

    Cindy – I’m glad you liked that. I had no idea she was doing that until she fell on my back… she’s a nut, that one. Thank you :o)

    Shannon – Thanks! Oh it’s not hard to do, you could do it today! Give it a try :o)

    Melissa – Thank you, yes no accent… LOL Oh the southern accent is a good one. You would get comments, but I’m sure they would all be nice ;o)

  17. destrella says:

    That crazy cat!!!! You are totally adorable. :O)

  18. Regan says:

    Yay for vlogs! πŸ™‚ Boo that WordPress didn’t work for you, but glad you settled on something you like. πŸ™‚

    Did I hear mention of vlog rules? What are they? I must know! πŸ™‚

  19. Erica says:

    Diane – I know, she’s a total crazy. She loves the guest room/Wii Room! Thank you for the nice compliment ;o)

  20. Erica says:

    Regan – Thanks! Let me find the link for you from a post on Lisa & Laura Write – hold on… *looking* Found it It’s by Daisy Whitney – she’s very knowledgeable Daisy’s Digital Do’s and Dont’s It’s over at Lisa and Laura Write


  21. Matt says:

    Erica, I liked it. The camera loves you. Do more. More. And, yeah, it sounded a bit like F___ you. Of course you know we would.

    As for the accent – very clever word choices. Well hidden.

    Love ya!

  22. Erica says:

    Matt – Aww thank you so much. That’s a really nice thing to say. You’re so sweet! Thanks, really I just kind of said what came to my mind – I rehearsed it in my head a few times ;o)
    Love ya too :o)

  23. Natalie says:

    Aw, you’re so cute! I love seeing vlogs because they show the whole person and not some static picture. I can get a feel for personality as well as looks.

    And I agree, I’m a blogger girl. It’s just easier. πŸ™‚

  24. Erica says:

    Natalie – Aw thank you! I like them too for the same reason ;o) it is sooo much easier :o) Thanks!

  25. Eric says:

    This great stuff. And so very brave of you to throw yourself in front of a camera (kitty included). I’d offer to do the same, but the glare off my dome would probably blind everyone. I’ll save you all from having to wear shades indoors. Thanks for sharing this with us, Erica.

  26. Erica says:

    Eric – Thanks, yeah I was a bit nervous, but luckily I’ve been getting nice responses ;o)

    Oh, come on! You’re too funny… You’re welcome – I’ll be waiting for you to change your mind ;o)
