I could never edit for Peter Jackson…

I could never edit for Peter Jackson…

Well it’s here… the VLOG!

Whose bright idea was it to do this? Oh yes, that would be me…

Hmmm. I wanted it to be ready before now but, well, here’s a few things I’ve learned about me vlogging:

  • I talk too much.
  • I talk too fast.
  • I say ‘SO’ a lot.
  •  And ‘Erm’…
  • I look at my face rather than the camera.
  • I probably shouldn’t have balanced the camera on a cushion.
  • Usable footage is about 1/5 of what was filmed.
  • Editing is a nightmare.
  • My hair annoys me…
  • …but not as much as technology!

It’s also too long in my opinion – I’ll totally understand if you don’t have time to watch it – but I didn’t want to leave any questions out and like I said, I waffle! Maybe I should have split it across a trilogy and released an episode a year…

I still had fun doing it though and the main reason for it was to say thanks to you lot for reading / commenting and basically sticking around and making me feel it’s all worthwhile. 🙂

Therefore, here’s a big list (in no particular order) of everyone who commented on the announcement posts, whether you asked a question or not – please go check each other out because you’re all awesome for many reasons (obviously… you read my stuff!)
