Trying out a vlog

My friend Patty somehow talked a bunch of us into trying a video blog, or vlog. Glutton for punishment that I am, I decided not only to do a vlog but to do two--one in each of my languages. I thought I was going to be all clever and hold up some of the books I've been published in, but when I tried that in a test run, the titles were all backwards. :-\ So yeah, didn't do that. The content in the two videos isn't identical, but they are similar. The lighting isn't great, but hey, you can see me. ;-)

IN ENGLISH:



IN AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE:


Check out my friends' vlogs in the Linky at the bottom of Patty's post: http://www.pattywysong.com/2012/01/me-in-terrifying-technicolor.html

Amy, i am so excited about the publisher requesting your full ms! YAY! It was so wonderful to hear your voice again!

The sign language was great. I found it interesting how much facial expressions play a role in sign language.

Great job!!! Love you! HUGS!

I played both videos at the same time. Listened to you but watched the other. I love the animated one much better:) Love your expressions:)

Nicely done, Amy! And yay on Reaching Sky!

Thanks, guys! I think I'll get more animated in my English vlogs as I get more used to talking at the camera. As for the ASL one, Rita's right that facial expressions are part of the language itself and actually show some of the punctuation and adjectives and such, so it's harder to give into the expressionless nerves, lol! ;-)

It was a good video blog I hope to see some more in the future. What better way to spread God's word and let everybody know about Jesus our Savior
