Video Round-up: February videos

videoWell I finally did it, prompted by my trip to Africa with Comic Relief, I made some vlogs this month after a bit of a break. It reminded me how it doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming. In fact not having to type and sit at the laptop to deliver your post can be really liberating.

More on mine later, first, what has everyone else been up to?

Victoria over at Verily, Victoria Vocalises has made her first vlog and wow, it is so well delivered. Is that really your first attempt Victoria?  So clear, confident and I love the idea of doing a run through of what’s on the blog too.

I love that Helen  managed to capture snow angels on film. I have such vivid memories of making snow angels as a kid, so hats off to Helen for getting this on film, I bet your children will love looking back at this.

Like Helen, Aly has beautiful photos of playing in the snow and even risked her camera to capture a snowball fight, this will be wonderful to look back on. I especially love the parent child conversations, they make me want to catch much more of that on film. The family’s giggles are infectious too.

Emma from Mummy Mummy Mum’s heartwarming multimedia presentation Not All Cakes and Playdough is a wonderful way to explore what we capture in photos, and she acknowledges, as we all do, that behind every picture of a cherished moment lies so much love and at least a good ten minutes of cajoling, debate and negotiation over something that seemed important at the time.

Mari captured the Panasonic Living Mums in action cooking using a Combination oven at their last visit to Panasonic HQ. Have a good giggle at us trying to pull off being TV chefs and see which bloggers you can spot.

I went back to my roots as a drama teacher and went into role for one final teaser video before myself and Mammasurus and Mummy Barrow revealed the #secretthing, our trip to Africa. It has been dubbed my audition tape for Eastenders.

Do have a look at the videos, share the vlogging love and leave me a link or get in touch if you have a video to share, I would love to see it. Hopefully next month I will have some video to share from Ghana.

    I thought I’d already put a comment on here but it can’t have worked!! (oops, I’m supposed to be ‘down with technology’ now I’m vlogging!). Thank you so much for featuring me Penny – I never realised I’d come up with an idea with the round-up but, hey, I guess you’re right! I best get on with doing this weeks one tomorrow! 🙂 x

    Kateonthinice made me get naked to celebrate our mummy bodies that birthed our beautiful children. Here’s why I did it.
