My mother said that my last blog post was too long. Maybe she was right, but I thought my recounting of my ill-fated vacation to California was an interesting one, and I wanted to do it justice. The cool thing though about my mom saying that my last blog post was too long, is the fact that she is reading my blog with regularity! I love that! So, this post will be a bit shorter in her honor.
The point of today’s post really is to let you know that I am now on YouTube! It has been a goal of mine for a while now, so I guess I can check that one off the list. It will also give me an opportunity to showcase the drumming that I talk so much about on my blog (and elsewhere). As you watch, please remember that I have just been playing since April of last year. So, with that said, don’t expect my videos or my drumming to be professional quality, at least not yet. I see them more as a way of tracking my progress. I know that I have a long way to go as a drummer, but it will be fun to track my progress together.
The first video that I am posting is one that I made for a work project. My company had a YouTube contest back in November, and the object was to create a video about why we like working for the company. Mine took second place, although, had the vote been for creativity and talent, hands-down, I would have won. Instead the winner was decided by popular vote, and I am not yet very well-known at my company, as I have only been there about 6 months. Anyway, I put a lot of heart and soul into it, which I hope comes through as you watch it.
So here it is, my very first YouTube video. It is also my acting debut and my first time using iMovie. Please watch it, and you never know…it may even end up going viral!
