Why I’m Starting a Vlog


When the whispers started there may be a Coronavirus quarantine, my first thought was …. oooooo, I could work on some big projects.  While I fully accept this isn’t the most rational response it was confirmed when my friend Russel Powell shared this Washington Post article.

During a pandemic, Isaac Newton had to work from home, too. He used the time wisely.

Then another friend – Jessica Morse, owner of the Water Room – shared this from Sara Blakely.  Then I knew I wasn’t alone.

The idea of video has been rumbling around in my head for a long time.  But I was scared.  My friend and talented photographer Leigh Webber told me once she knew I could learn the skill.  That really stayed with me as a beacon of confidence.

During this crazy time, I’m going to learn how to create awesome videos while sharing the process.  Here’s the first one.
