(thanks to a certain lovely gentleman for making this post possible)
Well, I made good on my promise–I recorded my first video blog post yesterday! And I opened the mystery golden rectangle to reveal…well, I guess you’ll just have to watch the video. It’s SFW (as in Safe For Work, meaning it’s G-Rated), though I know some of you would probably prefer otherwise, haha. But I’m an escort, not a porn star…though, when it comes to future careers, I guess I wouldn’t totally rule that one out…
I came up with a low-tech solution for the whole “I probably shouldn’t broadcast my face all over the internet” problem: I simply kept my head out of the frame. This worked out fine right up until I started talking and forgot to sit still, haha. I added a blur, which works for now, but I’d like to find an easier way. Maybe next time I’ll wear a really creepy clown mask and lacy lingerie (kidding, kidding).
By the way–this is a BIG step for me, y’all. I am a huge cameraphobe, and as I’m sure you can tell in the video, I get pretty nervous when there’s a camera on me. But I promised I would do it, so I did. That’s how much I love y’all, hahah.
Maybe if I do a bunch of these, I’ll lose the virtual “stage fright”…
Anyway, here it is:
I really should have done a lot more planning before plopping myself in front of a camera and rambling for 4 minutes, but if I had tried to make it perfect, it would still be on my to-do list right now. So, here’s what you get: me, wearing the outfit I had on for yoga class, sitting on a bed and opening a present. I promise my future videos will be better. For now, I’m just happy that I figured out how to use the video editing software.
