In My Mailbox [9] OH MY GOSH I MADE A VLOG! :D

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted over at the lovely blog The Story Siren. The point is to blog about books that you have somehow procured during the week!

So I had been entertaining the thought of doing vlogs for IMM for awhile now because it just seemed like it would be a fun thing to do and I thought it would be easy since my laptop has a webcam that I can record on. Haha. Little did I know it would be a little trickier than just popping open my laptop and hitting record. My experience went something like this:

1st Vlog Attempt: Bad lighting. Good thing I realized this like 2 minutes into the video. Hehe.

2nd Vlog Attempt: At the very end of the movie my computer goes into screensaver mode and stops recording!!! CURSES!!!!

3rd Vlog Attempt: Computer goes into screensaver mode AGAIN. Needless to say I changed the screensaver settings this time....

4th Vlog Attempt: WAY too long. It was like nearly 20 minutes. I talk too much.....

5th-6th Vlog Attempt: Still too long!

7th Vlog Attempt: Finally short enough! But what is this? THE SOUND DIDN'T RECORD?!?!?! GAHHHH. :/

8th Vlog Attempt: FINALLY!!!!!! SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

As you can see it was way more complicated then I anticipated. Hehe. I still don't know why that one video didn't record sound.... mysterious. Clearly my computer hates me or something. :P The important thing is that I actually did get one that's presentable though right? Hope you guys like it! (and for the record I realized AFTER I recorded this that Dutch isn't Danish because the Dutch are from Holland and the Danish are from Denmark. Fail. :P) Oh and am I the only one who thinks that YouTube must use the most disgusting part of the video to put as like the main video still??? Gehhh.

So did you guys like the vlog? I hope it wasn't too much rambling and craziness. Hehe. Watching this made me realize that I really do talk fast.... I should probably work on that. Hopefully I'll get better at doing vlogs in the future. Would you like to see more of them?

  1. Such a fun first vlog! It is so neat to hear your thoughts on HP after the books and movies have already been out for years now. I really hope no one spoils any of the deaths or major plot points for you in the later books! Oh, and it's pronounced Rowling like bowling, not like howling :)
