The Story Behind This Awkward Notion To Vlog

So, here is the rest of the story.

Back in 2005, some of my friends and I decided we were gonna post cheesy YouTube videos.  I was studying Film at UNO, and learning a few things.  Plus, this was waaaay before kids and responsibility, so we needed a way to fill the time.  It was fun, but we eventually took down our page, because it was just pretty gooftastic.

Fast-forward to now.  It's been forever since I edited (or Kyle for that matter), and I know how hard it is to get comfortable on camera when you are unscripted.  Just sharing your voice and perspective with the world is hard without adding a camera to it.  Still, about a month ago, I came across a few vlogs that featured families.  For some strange reason, the idea of a family vlog really appealed to me.  So, Kyle and I got a few things together, got an editing program (which we have to completely relearn how to use), and we decided we are going to try this.

Today we uploaded our first video on one of my old YouTube pages.  How did it go?  Well, it's clear to both of us that we need more practice.  We are not as awkward as I thought we would be, yet still pretty darn awkward.  (I had some low expectations.)  Plus, we are going need need a lot of editing practice.  We didn't have time to make an intro, but we will get one.

Anyway, I set up a Facebook page that you can "like" to receive the videos, pictures, and my regular blog updates as well from this page.  Here it is, peeps!
