Vlog #1

As I sat down at my computer to write a post this afternoon, I decided to shake things up and create a video blog post (also known as a "vlog"). Enjoy!

    Big blank area on the blog, unless you hit the Comment button, and then the video shows up. It doesn't on the main page, though.

    1. Very strange. Maybe the connection was slow and it had difficulty loading?

      Funny someone should mention this here. I've had it happen on the Duggar blog.

    If you read the original version of The Jungle Book, you probably wouldn't be giving it away. It's so politically incorrect!

      I really have to stop and check for what spell changes occur it cause it does not let the v words alone here! Sorry you did not clog us!

    2. Anon I too have noticed when I type using my phone it wants to change the word I want to type. Like the word "at" will be changed to 21st or something like that. I tried turning off the word suggestion feature but I still have problems. You might try a difference device and see if that helps.

    You are adorable Ellie! I'd love to read a blog post/watch a vlog about how you budget. You are obviously a frugal person, so I'd love to learn more about your financial goals.

    Totally random, but as a west coast gal I love your southern accent!

    1. Thanks! I didn't realize I have a Southern accent. Lol. What state do you live in? We did a road trip along the West Coast last fall (I posted pictures to the blog) and we absolutely loved it. The coast is breathtaking.

  6. I love when you post videos--it really makes the topic come alive as you are a but more personablend and not just someone "sitting in front of a computer". I would love to see more cooking, organization, and even a daily routine video. Thanks for your blog-I enjoy reading/watching! 😄

    Hi Ellie!

    Hope you can help with this ;-)
    My older brother is heading off to college and we're looking in to getting him an apartment but they so expensive! I remember you saying you lived with a bunch of girls in a house and next store they were a house of boys. How did you find about that and what would something like that be. I wanna see if we could find something like that here! THANKS!

    3. Hi there,

      What a sweet sister you are to be helping him find a place to live! The living situation I had was unique, and we were told that it's one-of-a-kind. The house was owned by a church, and next door was a house for guys also owned by the same church. You could try asking the school if they know of anything like that on or off campus.

      Hope this helps!

  14. Like someone mentioned above, I'd love to hear a vlog about financials and budgeting! (Or read a post 😊) I'm a grad student, and I am always looking for new ideas of how to save money/cut back on spending.

    And I would love to watch you and Mr. Handsome do a little vlog! How fun would that be?!

    You do know that when people say "vlogging", especially on YouTube, that it typically means that the person will be videotaping themselves throughout their various activities of the day. Not sitting at a computer talking to a camera- that would be considered just a regular "video", if we're getting specific here. If you search for "vlogs" on YouTube you'll get the idea

      Many YouTubers do exactly what Ellie just did and it is still considered a vlog.

  16. Thanks for this vlog Ellie! I've enjoyed your live interviews as well! Will we be seeing anymore of those? Maybe one with Mo Pitney? Or your Mom? That would be fun!

    Do you go away every weekend? Since most dentists don't work Fridays, I suspect you do. There's a pattern to your blogs and when new posts go up and when they (and the responses) don't.

    1. Nope, not at all. Our fall was unusually busy, but we usually spend most of our time at home. I blog a lot during the week, but I try to minimize computer time on the weekends in order to give myself a chance to rest (although that doesn't always happen, lol). Also, blogging requires a lot of behind the scenes work, so even if I'm not publishing a post, that doesn't mean I'm not working. :)

    If you do more videos in the future, you should raise the camera so it's at your eye level. The angle here was very unflattering and it was distracting to look at your ceiling.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lol, I spent about 10 minutes trying to figure out camera angle. I was actually holding the camera with my feet because I couldn't find an object that was the right height to put it on. I'll have to figure out another arrangement. Lol.

    I enjoyed the live video! It's nice to put a face and voice on someone you read. I would love to see a video of you and your husband discussing what you've learned in your first year of marriage. I also enjoy posts about recipes, faith, and tips on frugal living.

    Well it was nice to 'meet you'. I think you did very well holding your camera with your feet while talking! That would of been a great photo :)
