I’m stuck on the horns of a dilemma at the moment, I wonder if you can tell? I’ve been thinking recently that maybe I should start making videos for this blog. You know the type which other bloggers use?
Now, when I say ‘making videos’ I obviously don’t mean anything which is going to rival Thriller. In fact, if I made a video it would look incredibly bland with zero effect at all. But a video will kind of open the door on a whole different type of expression and this may be good. Here are both the horns…
Have you ever watched telly? It’s really good, isn’t it? Revolutionary. I reckon it’s going to catch on. I think people will like watching someone else move and talk as if they’re a real human. It might even warm you to me. Who knows, people may like me.
It will hopefully be quicker, both to produce and to digest. This means I won’t be taking up so much of your time.
It might be easier to understand me. I’ve never been a good writer… thank God I don’t want to do that for a living.
I’ve been watching more and more of these little embedded videos on other sites and I quite like them. It gives a much better appreciation of who you’re listening to.
Plus, technology has moved on so much now that making them and watching them is easy for most people.
You’ll be able to see me. Aaaarrggghhhhhhh!!!!
The thought of it kind of makes me feel quite exposed. It’s a very warts and all approach and I don’t know if I’m ready… shit, I don’t know if you’re ready.
Would I have to plan and script everything, or just shoot from the hip. If it’s the latter then there could be a lot of dead airtime or just a lot of bollocks.
I’d have to make sure that I had clothes on and was reasonably well presented. Not that I’m not dressed every time I write I hope you realise (I don’t want you thinking like that when you read my words) but there’s definitely a different kind of pressure there.
And actually, the most important question is… why? What would it enhance? If it was just me muttering away because I was too lazy to write then I don’t see the point.
I think I will have a go the next time I want to write about something which would look better if you actually see what I was talking about. For example, if I decided to explain the best way to peel an onion without crying, or perhaps the best way to disarm a six year old carrying a Nerf Gun.
We’ll see… Until next time…
