I’ve never liked being on video much, but I didn’t really think speaking freely about something of interest to me would be so dang hard to do!
But this morning on the drive to work, I took my new Flip video camera, set it on the dashboard consule, and proceeded to take a dozen or more videos of myself talking about the Chevy Traverse. Not one of them made the cut (but I’m the editor, my own worst critic!). I desperately grabbed my friend Beth at work who has worked in the video production department for years and begged her to help me! I figured that having her calm & experience behind the camera would hopefully help me stay calm and collected in front of the camera.
I don’t know if it actually worked, but at least I had a video that despite my embarrassment, I could take the chance of posting on www.mommymadnesskc.com. Beth approved, so whether or not it’s any good, hey, at least we had fun doing it! I’m sure I’ll be utilizing her skills and knowledge MUCH more throughout this process.
So get to it – go watch it. Let me know what you think, I think…

Hey, I voted for you on mommy madness. Thought your video was great, way to get Costco branding in there. You are such a marketing guru. Got any new SEO tips?
I understand completely! I even blogged about my poor “onscreen presence” early on at Mommy Madness Houston! It gets better! Just remember to smile before you start recording…that helps!
Not sure how much help I was, but at least you got the first one posted. It will be smooth sailing from here!
LOL You are too cute! I love the video. You did great!!
