What new things have you dared to do?

If I never try anything new, I get stuck in my own little hole and never learn or grow. My mother taught me to "dabble" - to try new things, at least a little, to see if it's something you want to spend more time doing. I've realized that most things aren't as hard as I thought they would be. I just needed to try.

My good friend, Patty Wysong, has challenged a few of us to make a vlog (video blog). We were encouraged to introduce ourselves and tell a little about what we are doing. I know it's a good way to promote your writing, and that I'd have to practice sometime, but it took this group of friends to get me going.

I've been thinking about where to do the vlog, what to say, what to wear, etc. I even dreamed about it last night. It took a stack of books and a few dud attempts to finally make it, but I did it! (...although I forgot what I wanted to say - even with notes.)

If you would like to see more vlogs, go to Peej's blog,
Ordinary Lives.
(It's all her fault....smile!)

No, Peej, it wasn't as hard as we feared...but I couldn't figure out my webcam, so I used my digital camera (and transferred it).
I've figured out the webcam now...so next time, I'll be able to use that.
(Did I say "next time" !?)
