A Year of YouTube
By user12601629 on Dec 25, 2007
On December 26, 2006 I posted my first video to YouTube. It was a fairly pointless demonstration to prove I could do it, and I posted some instructions on how to get started. It's fairly shocking over 1,000 have people watched that first little clip so far. Over the course of the year, I found bits of time to put together more and more sophisticated videos. Some of my favorites are:
- Travel log from India (part 1 and part 2)
- Five Things About Me
- New Zealand Travel log (part 1, part 2 and part 3)
One of the most fun parts of my year of video blogging wasn't a video at all. In June I made a posting where I encouraged some of the writers at Sun to give up their pens and pick up their cameras (at least for a while). As you can see from the comments on that posting I ruffled a few feathers. In fact this lead to a series of discussions on others blogs. While the writers haven't given up the written word, I'm pretty pleased to see more of them embracing new media concepts like blogs and videos. I hope to see more of that in 2008!
