I Did My Tenth Video Blog!

My Tenth 3-5 Minute Video Blog   Pixie dust

This will be my Tenth 3-5 minute video blog, (have sign with 10 blog) since I reluctantly started my video blog businessebout how long my video is in August this year.  

I  was all set to have a banner year of 3-5 minute video talks, …but all my planned work …(public speaking)got canceled!! 

I had the opportunity GV to do a re-think … my plan

Re-Thinking My Plan of 3-5 Minute Videos

Maybe this would be a good time to start my 3-5 Minute Video Blog business?  With my motivational …speaking business GONE, …this seemed like a good option. 

When I started out, I first had to write what I wanted to say and keep it to 3-5 minutes.  DA  I hit my first check mark. DA

My Vlog Business

I was fine writing my vlog DA(that is what the users call their video blogs) DA but I faced challenges when it became time to read my speech.  Here is a brief video after a number of re-edits …when I read my speech….for the very first time:  (First video blog)   

I look at that talk …and I cringe when I watch it …!  

Even Now , if I don’t practice the delivery of my speech for 2-3 months…and memorize the  lines, I can’t give my talk. 


The workaround:  I still have to practice, but I don’t need to memorize the whole thing before I record. I do one line at a time…then stop the video …and memorize the next line …then record that line.  

This appears to work…and it is the only workaround I came up with.  Given this, I can do 2-3 talks per month, 3-5 minutes per talk.

Small Steps

Now that I said it, I can’t believe it takes me so long to get a 3-5 minute video out to you!  ….DA It is what it is! DA 

Do you want to look at …how far I’ve come?

Record over clips

Can I Make It With 3-5 Minutes Video?

Now the real question: Can I any make money at it? 

There are plenty of people  making a good living  (look at a few people)  …so why not take a chance?  Besides, I’m only 63 years old; it would be too early to do NOTHING!!! 

I will talk to you all… next year!  Happy Holidays!
