Video Killed The Radio Star!!!

So I was sitting there in my PJ's on the sofa with my dog Elvis snoozing by my side contemplating my first YouTube video. I had web cam fright!!! How is this possible??? I video chat with the kids when I am on vacation. I video chat with my husband when he is working. Why was I afraid of the web cam now. I have watched hundreds of other people do it. It looks so easy!!!

I think I had to just psych myself out, I can do this, I said to myself!  I used to get up in front of hundreds of people and speak, I had even been on TV before, so no more fooling around, I will do this. I am strong, I am invincible, I AM WOMAN! Yes, Helen Reddy is playing in the back of my mind...

Besides, it can't be any worse than trying to put eye drops in a bearded dragon's eyes, and yes, I have had to do that too! But that it another story I will share with you on another day!



So I gather up all the confidence I could muster, and... VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I wasn't a radio star, but I finally got over my web cam fear. Sort of and you can see that I had nothing to fear but fear itself, well, and a shaky camera. I will admit, it took about 10 takes, those Hollywood actors have tougher jobs than I thought. I didn't realize how hard it was.

So here it is, cheesy as it may be, my first YouTube video geared toward my business. Though unfortunately I have to update it already because I have consolidated everything to my personal sites.



And yes I know I was blinking a lot and looked scared to death!
 
Well, anyway, I worked at it and I overcame and I too am a video star, sort of!
