In today’s video I talk about Spring weather, making videos, business perks, and my health.
If you don’t care for video, I included text below.

As a business owner working from home, I’m able to follow a schedule that suits my health and lifestyle. That’s one of the perks of being the boss. Though, it also means if I’m not 100% up to the challenge, then things don’t get done.
This was the case since Wednesday. My blood disorder flared leaving me lethargic and drained of energy. I posted on the blog Monday and Tuesday of this last week, but then I couldn’t continue again until today.
Sadly, this means people found the blog bare of posts since Tuesday and that’s never a good thing! Though, I’m not going to beat myself up over it. There will be times in your life when something happens that prevents you from making a blog post. Don’t let it get you down.
I have a blood disorder that kicks in at the most inopportune time and it prevents me from getting certain tasks done. Though by Saturday I was feeling much better and managed to record a video and get a written report finished for “How to Add a Border to a Picture” that you can read at your leisure.
30 Day List Building and Blogging Challenge
Thanks to my Polycythemia, I fell behind on the challenge by 3 days, but I will catch up by doubling up on days this coming week.
There’s one week left to this latest challenge of Tiffany Dow’s and you could still join in on the fun. If you’re interested in joining us for the last 5 days of the challenge, just hop aboard and then post your latest video over at Tiffany’s blog.
Doing a Video Blog
If you haven’t created a video, now would be a good time to do it since you have the rest of the blogging challengers participating on other blogs. You’ll have us to come to your blog, showing our support for your efforts!
Follow Katie’s lead. She stepped up to the plate this past week and produced her very first video blog. I’m so proud of her, too! Even though she was afraid, she still made a video. You can too!
Your first video doesn’t need to be longer than a minute. My first video was less than 2 minutes long! I wanted to sit down and record – just to get it over with so I wasn’t about to make an extended video my first time out.
Look at making your first video like you’re going swimming. You get to the edge of the water and dip your toe into the water. The temperature isn’t so bad so you walk into the water a little further each time. Well, making videos is pretty much done the same way.
You don’t have to sit in front of the video camera for a 30 minute session your first time. Sit in front of the camera and say hello to people. Explain a little about yourself and why you’re so hesitant to make video and end the video there.
It would take less than 2 minutes to do a video like that, but you would be a better person for it. You would’ve tried something you were afraid to do, your video would finally be done, and every video from this point forward will get easier to do!
It’s that time of year when the sun is poking through the clouds and bringing us warmer weather. I’m looking forward to better weather and so is the partner. He’s already outside tinkering with his bike, getting it prepared for riding.
He built this bike with his own hands and decided to take it to the carwash today. He wanted to remove the rust and I guess it wasn’t happening fast enough for him by hand.
I didn’t laugh because he took it to the carwash, but he rides this thing wearing a big black cowboy hat and it’s comical to me.
Your turn! Leave a comment below and let me know what’s on your mind!
