This all started back when Kari over at Running Ricig mentioned how another blogger had met her in person for the first time and had said her voice was lower than she had imagined. I emailed her about how I am now on a mission to set the "tone" of my blog for my readers by uploading a video of myself so that people can actually hear my voice and know what I sound like. I told her that my voice is probably also lower than others think it would be and I also sound like a yooper since I am in Wisconsin and all.
Here's the best video of me. I'm so awesomely kind to Mike in it.
In the video you meet me, Katelyn, my mom (she will hate that youtube paused her in the still shot), my dad and my sister Jill.
I also want to let you know that Mike's pretty infamous for taking terrible videos of everyone. Close ups of zits, or our mouths or something really unflattering to those on the other side of the camera. I figured that was probably what he was doing and on top of it, I am not one that is used to being on the camera so for me to have the camera pointed at me for nearly 5 minutes (felt like 10 in my head) is hard. I tried to keep it cool and thought that if I ignored him, he would get bored and quit. Apparently not.
To prove my point a little bit. I wrote on my sisters wall that I would be uploading a video on my blog of her eating and this is what she wrote.
So I hope you forgive me for my un-Christmas like attitude. I also hope that you can now picture the tone in which this blog is written. If I lose followers after today, I understand.
Here is a challenge: Upload your own video.
