Today is the fourth day into the video blogging challenge, and I am laughing at the start of my video because I recorded an entire video, before this one, without turning on the microphone.
I tell you all about it in today’s video and retrace my conversation from yesterday to give you an explanation of why I am so passionate that you join me on this video challenge. You can watch the video or read the included text.

Day 4 – Video Blogging Challenge from Bonnie Gean
The Scolding Session
Yesterday, I created a video with my BIG boots on and proceeded to scold people for giving me the excuse that they didn’t have time to get in on this challenge.
Even though the video challenge is set to support your daily video creation, I don’t require that you get them all done. I merely ask that you consider “trying” it out for 30 days.
If you’re too busy to do 30 videos, I totally understand. But, please try and set aside two minutes across an entire week to produce ONE video!
Editing the Video
Some peeps believe that editing the video is what takes the most time – and it could, if you let it; but, I know a girl who records on her telephone and then immediately uploads it to the Internet without a single editing stroke!
Could you do the same? Sure you can!
There’s no law that says you must edit your video. Listen to my videos a little closer, and you’ll hear me stumbling over words, but I don’t edit them out because it keeps the conversation authentic.
Video isn’t about being a perfectionist darling… it’s about being real! If we went to eat at a restaurant together and I said something backwards, we would probably share a good laugh about it. Why not on video?
This challenge isn’t about producing top quality video content; it’s about YOU coming out of your shell and trying something new so you can benefit from the experience now and into the future.
Give yourself some breathing room. You’re new to creating videos so have a little fun. Don’t get hung up on the idea that you need to be super professional and dressed to the hilt in business clothes with tons of makeup on your face.
Video blogging is about sharing two minutes of your time so viewers can get a feel for what you stand for and how you want to help them.
You don’t need to add an intro, outros or music to your videos, unless you want to. Keep the editing process at a bare minimum or skip it altogether – whatever is easier for you!
What I Would Like to See from You
I want to get to know YOU. I want to share tidbits about our lives and what we do when we’re offline – not just online!
Introduce your kids or significant other if you want to. I would love to meet them too! Tell me what holds you back from reaching goals or how you coach the local softball team.
Break out your video camera and sit down to have a conversation with me. Don’t write a script and don’t get all dolled up just to do this. Simply sit down, pick a topic and talk!
In turn, the next person watching your video will feel as if you’re talking directly to them, and that’s the whole point of doing video – to CONNECT with people.
I am passionate about helping you. I want you to understand that you can make a splash with a video – if you trust the process. Trust me, trust yourself and the magic will happen!
Are you convinced that video is worth a try or am I blowing off hot air? Leave a comment below and let me know!
