Some jumbled letters here

Inspired by Mike and Rupert.

I think, this year, I’m going to attempt National Vlog Post Month – aka – ‘NaVloPoMo’.

STOP!!!!!

Don’t go! Don’t run away! Stay here, please..?
Just for a minute.

Let me explain.

I’ve seen those jumbled letters before you see, they make me shiver and panic. “Too much!” my brain screams, “Far too much!”.

Thing is, NaVloPoMo defines that every day for the month of November, I need to post a new video blog. This sounds relatively simple enough, right? Well no, it’s not actually. But – logistic technicalities aside – when it comes to my own blog, I try to stagger my output as much as possible. One post every week to ten days or so here on my happy place means that, in my mind anyway, people might be more inclined to read it.

This might sound silly to you, but if I suddenly started throwing out seven posts a day, you’d stop coming back.

The point is, time is precious. And I’m aware of how much time it takes to read a single blog post, let alone consume any video. So if you just go away for a month and decide to come back in December, when this is all done… then I understand.

If you’re happy to stick around and put up with my videos, then awesome.

Here’s one to start you off:

(see you back here tomorrow)

    Yay!
    I know exactly what you mean about frequency.
    But I think it’s OK for this.
    I thought about setting up a Posterous specially for it.
    But actually, you just want to get the stuff to your regular subscribers.
    And everybody understands a challenge. You know how much effort it takes to skip over an item in your reader if you don’t feel in the mood for it? Zero. If you post a bunch of videos and some people don’t want to watch them all, it doesn’t mean they’ll unsubscribe or tune you out forever. And there are a lot of other people out there looking for something fun to watch.
    30 days. Go for it. I always crap out at about 22 days. I challenge you to outlast me!
