Welcome to this week’s grammy nominated Vlogging Workshop powered by MomPulse! Today’s prompts are:

1.) Share a favorite blogging or vlogging tip and/or pet peeve.
2.) What do you do for “me time”?
3.) Your top 5! Share which celebrities you would put in your top 5 card if you had a top 5 card for celebrities.
4.) Dinner at your house.
5.) Give your child your camera and share when they vlogged or filmed (edit as needed!)

Choose one, create a video, and link up!

This past summer I spent some time with Mandy from Harper’s Happenings at a book signing event and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share some very important vlogging tips. It’s a perfect video for those of you who are interested in honing your vlogging skills or if you’re just starting out. We’ve got a little something for everyone!:

Today I’m featuring Cinella from The Mami Blog and she shared the last thing she bought in less than a minute that leaves a bit of a to be continued cliff hanger!:

1.) American Idol Auditions. (inspired by Vera Sweeney)
2.) A Valentine’s Day craft!
3.) Top 6 things you love about your valentine.
4.) January Favorites! (This is a monthly meme I discovered on YouTube…at the end of every month vloggers share their favorite products, deals, and purchases from that month)
5.) Vlog Community Member Naila Moon has challenged you to participate in the One Billion Rising revolution: “On V-Day’s we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to violence against women.” You can download the official song on this page and either follow the choreographed routine outlined there or just have fun and dance!

My girls have been running off with my iPhone for weeks now, so this was a great way for me to show off their talent (ahem, ahem)!
Really love those vlog tips and think I’ll incorporate them into next week’s vlog (I can’t wait to audition for American Idol! You’re judging, right?)

Wow. And to think I’ve been putting my entire face on the screen. Thanks for the vlogging tips!

This week I must have been channeling you because I also only filmed part of my face. Who knew I was doing it right this whole time? Your help is appreciated!! xox

Hooray for doing my first vlog prompt! I have been terrified of videos but with your super helpful tips I am ready to start cranking out those videos! ;)

I have tried to link up about 10 times now and I can’t. I give up. Well, at least for today. So, here is my link.
Have a better day.
