Great video posts so far!

I am so glad I put out this challenge to everyone about posting a quick video of yourself. I think there have been 4 or 5 so far and hope there will be more in the coming days. I would list all of them here, but you know who you are and some of them are friends only, so I want to respect all privacy there.

There are few things I've learned very quickly. Typing a post on LJ is certainly much easier and less stressful. When typing you can take your time, pause for 5 minutes or 5 hours, get distracted by something else, change your mind, etc. When recording yourself there is stress in making sure you fill every second as if it's all forced. I feel the same way when I do this sometimes too. There is just a lot of pressure to entertain I guess and keep it interesting. Speech gets very informal too. Definitely lots of "uh's" and "um's" in there. Trust me, I was just as bad. :p

This has been very enlightening to see a totally different person. There are some things that video can't capture that still photography can. There are still more things that video can capture that photography can't. I hope the rest of you are still working on doing a short post about yourself. It's been great watching them and it appears your friends have really enjoyed them too.

Only 9 days left!

2008 is proving to be a year of many firsts, Joe. I can now add "posting a video post" to my growing list. Thanks for the challenge!

Warm regards,

Cory

And I am regularly checking your Friends list to see any new video posts. I am just curious. I hope you don't mind. :)
