I’ve been thinking about making a Video Log (Vlogging/Vlog) for the last few months. For those of you who don’t know what a ‘Vlog’ is, it is what it says, a Video Blog or Log – of your life, interests or something else. I was thinking of reaching out to people on YouTube with one of my Blogs either shortened or summarised to fit in to a 7 to 10 minute video of spoken words. I think it’d reach a greater audience as average people are more likely to listen and watch than take the time to read because they’re to bone idle lazy. I know that sounds arrogant and insulting but I think it’s true, most people wont read anything these days unless it involves celebrities or some kind of scandal.
My only problem with Vlogging is I want to keep my identity secret! With my opinion on blogs it’s okay, I do get threats made against me now and again by the odd brainless gimp! However, on YouTube they see your face, hear your accent and there’s a good chance someone from where you live may recognise you. There’s a chance people where I live may have seen my face on MySpace, but they may have only saw my face but not what I write about and how I insult them! With a video they’ll hear what I have to say and what I think of them, with some knowing where I live it aint a good idea. There’s also the Nazis and religious nut jobs, so yeh, I may wear a mask or just not show my face completely!
I need a little help though. I need to know if I can distort my voice with a tool in Windows or maybe with the Cam and Mic I have? I haven’t checked it yet and to be honest I have no idea what I’m looking at or doing other than pressing record and changing the screen colours. Another thing I need is videos I can use to put together a video so I can explain something while I talk, does anyone know of a free on-line video library where I can download vids so I can edit them in Movie Maker? I have looked on-line for free vid Libraries but I’m not sure which are safe to download from.
It seems one or two people got a little confused with my last post about the Portuguese PM? I’d just like to say it was made up and a work of fiction. So, because I don’t want people getting confused between my Political Fiction and Political Satire I’ve made a new blog Category called ‘Politcial Fiction’. So whenever you see this as the blog subject it means it isn’t true, okay a certain friend of mine? hahaha. Oh By the way, the Portuguese PM really IS corrupt! Also anything in blue is a LINK, they are safe to click, well they were at the time when I visited them.
