Where have I been?

Vlog four – The Barrowlands, Glasgow Green and Jars for Jason

Me and Ade at Jars for Jason

This is from a couple of weeks back now, almost – I just forgot to share it here but for completeness I thought I should.

I really enjoyed putting this one together and I had a good idea of what I wanted to record, heading out at lunch time to do some “during the day” kind of stuff before the Jars for Jason event that evening. It ended up at around 10 minutes, which I thought was about right for a day in the life kind of vlog, but I’ve had feedback that it’s a bit too long so maybe I should reel them in a bit.

In the process I learned some quirks of the YouTube video editing experience the hard way, which meant having to upload it three separate times. The bottom line is that I should do all the editing offline and not bother with the YouTube editor!

Vlog number 3 – It’s my birthday

I’m a few days late posting this – I should maybe automate the process so when I publish them to YouTube it automatically posts here. Anyhow, here’s a five minute vlog of what I did on my 44th birthday.

A weekend vlog 

With the children being away with my aunt and my mother for a holiday I had a free weekend to do as I pleased, but it turned out to be a wet one. Still, I made the most of it by getting an eye test, fixing a leaking pipe, then going for a night out followed by a day of watching sport and getting in some much needed exercise.

I even found a window in the weather for a skate into town to collect the car and used the opportunity to record some staged video clips. These involved placing the tripod and then backtracking to record myself approaching or leaving the camera. The results were mixed and I have a new found appreciation for video continuity, but I will hopefully get better with practice.
