Vloggin' It Out.

So I thought I had experienced some of lifes most awkward moments..until now.
Vlogging is the most awkward experience.
We're talking ten times more awkward than fashion blogging.
But, I vlogged. For 5 minutes and 47 seconds too long. And now I am posting it like a fool.
This is after my husband said "absolutely not".
However, I made homemade mashed potatoes, meatloaf, and green beans for dinner so he didn't really have a leg to stand on.

Word of warning: I talk like uhhh anyhow I am uhhh so yeah like really dumb. But I am not. I just talk like it. I also swallow loud/mildly choke at one point. This is better than the first video I took where I dropped the box of mac & cheese on my dogs head. And better than the third video I taped where I grabbed my phone and then started laughing out loud at what was on my screen without explaining what I was laughing at. It had to do with a Facebook notification. Not something dirty you freaks.

Anyhow--Sit back, relax, and soak up these next six minutes of your life that you will never get back.

Told you that was awkward. And embarrasing. And dumb.

But, I will do it again.

Remember--ask questions in the comments section so I can answer them on vlog number two.
Lord willing that happens. Looks like I will be cooking up something wonderful again.....

PS. That link-up I am referring to? That would be this one. Go Vlog it up yourself.
You better tell me if you do link up so I can come watch yours. Or else...just kidding.
You all know I am not intimidating now. My 2 thousand "ummms" kinda gave that one away.

Peace out lovers.

    As for any questions? Where did you get your top? Love your haircut, so what styling products do you use?

  4. I love vlogs because I actually get to hear the blogger's voice. For some reason, I always think I have an idea of how a person's voice will actually sound, but I'm usually surprised. Funny how that works. Yours wasn't quite what I expected, but I'm also not entirely sure what I expected. Nashville shout out!

  5. You did great! You definitely seemed natural, like you were just talking to all of us out here. And just like Ash said, it really is nice to actually hear a blogger's voice and be able to see how she is IRL.

  6. You are too cute! I'm probably going to sound like a total idiot when I do this (Wednesday...I think), but I think I'm just going to muscle through and try it!

  9. Girlfran this is fabulous! Why didn't I get the guts to do this?? Probs because I sound like a 10 yr old when I hear my own voice! Mac N' Cheese is also my favorite food and the shapes definitely taste different and better!! You are awesome :)

  13. You're a great vlogger!
    Seriously, Erin, you sound just like I pictured from reading your blog, which is high praise.

  14. ok so my computer only made it through the first 4 seconds of your vlog before a big huge error message came on, so since it's 1 am and I tried like fifty billion times to re-watch it (its my computer, not your vlog, swear) Im going to bed and then going to watch it again first thing in the morning.

    BUT I did have to comment, LOL to your "its much more awkward than fashion blogging" hahahahaha!!!! THAT was awesome.

    loved the first 4 seconds! and I will be back asap in the AM to come back and comment again when I watch the whole thing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. That was awesome! You should definetly do more.... Can you tell me the name of that app again? Apparently I am an old lady too... ;)

    And for your next vlog, what do you do at your day job?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  22. You are adorable!

    LOVED your shoes && necklace. Question, why doesn't your hubby like you to vlog? Just curious. I mean, I totally understand cutting out the favorite "positions" - whatever that means, but what's up. Apparently, I missed that one.

    LOVE the colors in the room you are in! && if it makes you feel better, I sound like a man too. I haven't recorded myself yet... maybe I'll have time to do it tonight!

  25. How cute are you?! Really, and completely at ease with yourself. I understand, It's always weird seeing yourself on video. You notice the little things that no one would pick up on. I found out that I made this awkward ticking noise after each sentence, woo hoo (!) come on over and check me out! You were great dahling!

  29. I still think you're adorable! Actually, I've been kinda avoiding the Vlog thing myself as I'm told I'm WAY funnier on paper than I am in person. I'm learning to accept this. But one of these days I'll brave it out. You did awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  30. wait wait, you drink the vodka with water only?? HOLLLAAA!!!! Like a BOSS! I tried the cucumber vodka but I like the reg stuff, 80 proof, that cucumber is only 60 and I need all the proof I can get :)

    You are adorable! Totally vlog confident. You should do more. No matter WHAT the hubs says. (hi hubs)

    LOL to the positions!!!! hahahahaha!!!!! yes, I am talking about THAT. Unfortunately, no one has decided to share those yet.....boo.

  32. Not only did I do, but I ended up recording it like eight times so I could be as cute as yours. Which ended in me giving you an awkward fan girl shout out. ;)

  47. I agree vlogging is pretty awkward (just did my first one for the link up), but I think you did a great job. That app sounds pretty useful also.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
