As a follower of vlogs, I cannot believe my new found respect and admiration for all of you who create these videos! I have had a go - I nearly bit my right arm off in frustration of listening to myself during the edit process. How dull I was! I will keep trying and see if I can't improve on my video style a whole lot, before going public. Yes, it was really bad...! I will leave you with a photo of our area, which may or may not feature in the videos, due to a slump in my learning curve...
