I was a little nervous to VLOG at first. If you’re new to vlogging, you’re probably wondering what the heck a VLOG is? VLOGGING is video blogging and I love it! Yeah, people look at me funny if I’m talking into a camera in a public place. Yes, you’ll probably here my kids in the background from time to time. Yes, it’s really me!

VLOGGING gives your readers a chance to put a face with a name.Β  They also get to “meet” you through the video camera.Β  It’s a touch of “real life.”

Check out my first conversation on Say It Face to Face – What is name of your blog and how did you come up with the name?

    I’m glad you wrote about Vlogging because I always have wanted to do it but have been afraid of doing it. #1 I am afraid the camera adds 10 pounds and I don’t need any help with that…LOL #2 For security reasons I have been a little weary.

    I am deathly afraid to vlog… okay, maybe that is too dramatic. But, I keep saying I am going to try a Monday Mingle. Any tips? Did you pre-write it? Or did you just record a few till you were happy with it?
