Vlogtalk Presents - the Non-Vlogger!


VLOGTALK is quickly becoming all the rage!
Please, if you are feeling froggy, join our three lovely hostesses who also host the#vlogtalk tweetchat Tuesday nights with answers to any vlogging questions you may have and will definitely provide you some good clean wine and conversation on a Friday night:

Jessica of My Time as Mom

Kate of Mommy Monologues

Elena at Mommy is In Time Out 
who doesn't seem to have a blog button I can grab..of course I could just be missing it.
You can link up at any one of their blogs to participate.

They continue to be the hostesses with the mostest
and are bringing bloggers outside the blog!
Except in my case, I was being dragged kicking and screaming..

You'll notice this is week two for the rest of the group and I'm only doing my first - this would be because all I could bring myself to do last week was sit in front of my camera and make faces at myself.  Seriously I recorded about 3 and a half seconds which were mostly Umms or uuhhhs and my anxiety was flipping out, and I don't have anxiety issues. I did have fun with the embellishments that came with the cam but that's another post entirely.

Here are this weeks prompts:

1) Why you don’t vlog 
(inspired by A Belle, a Bean, and a Chicago Dog)
2) What is your makeup routine? Show us 
(inspired by Daily Dose of Sugar Mama)
3) Tell us the story behind your kid(s) names or blog nicknames

So here I am barely out of my chicken skin and sweaty palms participating in Vlogtalk.  I especially love that the still picture chosen makes me look like a drunk televangelist..I swear I'm not loaded or preaching.

Me in all my dorkness - enjoy!
I can't wait to see all the other vloggers this week and maybe get some make-up tips - HAAA

SO happy my first time is done da dun!
Thanks ladies!

I'm so proud of you for facing your sweaty palms and vlogging. It's a delight to meet the Amy behind Coffee Lovin Mom! Your vlog was wonderful!

Dana @ WhatWereWeThinking? said...

I have totally been suckered into this vlog thing. Blech.

You did great, however! If I can keep doing them, you can, too!

Kimberly said...

I've been suckered into the vlogging world too. I'm right there with you, with the sweaty palms and anxiety! Great job, proud of you!!

tracy@sellabitmum said...

Oh you did awesome!

Marni's Organized Mess said...

I did this a few years ago... I thought it was okay, but I probably won't do it again.

Funny the topic you chose of course. You made me giggle a few times. I don't wear makeup or do my hair regularly often.

Thanks for linking up on my Super STALKER Sunday! I can't believe the response we have gotten again this week! :D If I wasn't already stalking you, I am now!

I hope you won't be a stranger and come back next week, or even just mid week and say hello! : ) I post lots of other great things like recipes, tackles, and rambles (oh my!).

Have you checked out my FANTASTIC Blog Hop Directory? It has at least 20 blog hops listed for each day of the week. There has to be something there to suit your fancy too. ; )

Elena said...

I want you to do it again! I loved seeing your face. You'll lose the sweaty palms the second time around - I promise!

Mom Went Crazy said...

I love how honest you are!! That's pretty cool! I don't know if I'll do another one, but it's pretty fun!

Miel et Lait said...

I was chicken, too! Love your hat!!!!

Vlogging is a great confidence building too, wouldn't you say? It's like we post identical posts!!!

Can't wait to see you next time!

OrangeHeroMama said...

awwww! just for that vlog i am totally following you! I REALLLY related to that! :)

Christy @

Mom of the Twinkies and Tot! said...

I love how brutally honest you were about why you don't like to vlog. You might surprise yourself & really get into it...I know I did! I think you did a great job, sweaty palms & all!

A Mountain Momma said...

I am so glad you did a vlog. It is so different, but it brings a whole new light to your blog. I love it even more...

XLMIC said...

You have a fantastic voice! Great pacing and inflections and enunciation. And "sparing the hair"... cracking me UP! I hate the way I look and so I make fun of it like nobody's business :)

Do more! Do more! Do more!

Liz said...

You, me and Chantelle need to start the no makeup/no hair done movement! I NEVER wear make up nor do my hair unless we have something big like a wedding to go to!

I think you did great! Seriously! No reason to be nervous. :)

amygrew said...

It was perfect! I am a no-makeup no hair done kinda gal too! We will just have to band together and vlog without judgement!

You should totally do it next week! Do you love the peer pressure ?! HAAH!

thepsychobabble said...

I say um way too much, too.

Leighann said...

Aww you cute little coffee lover!
You did a great job!
I was nervous to do my first one this week too but I ended up loving it.

Jessica said...

You did a great job on the vlog. It's nice to see that you are not really a graphic in real life. ;)

I'm so glad you decided to join us this week. The first vlog is the hardest to make (or at least it was for me). After that it gets easier.

R said...

you did awesome!! I hope you do more, because I'm loving "meeting" people face-to-screen-to-face ;)

and seriously - do any of us wear make-up? I'm starting to see a pattern in a lot of the vlogs and comments... ;)

cajunlicious said...

Hi! Following you from the blog hop! Hope you visit my Cajun blog and return the follow!

The Not So Perfect Housewife said...

I just joined up this week and totally didn't see the prompts.. LOL.
Hopefully I'll be on the groove next week..

Loved your vlog!!

Elaine A. said...

You did great and your so cute in your hat! Nice to "meet" you through vlogtalk! :-D

Diane @ OhDiane said...

I'm with you on the hair thing and not wanting to show my face. I was contemplating wearing a hat as well, but then I decided to just fix it a little.

Carri said...

hehehe You're so cute with your sweaty palms!

Jackie said...

You did great! If you hadnt' said that you were nervous I wouldn't have known!
And honestly... it scares me too! I must have to do a million takes before I get it close to something that is watchable!
Hope to see you do it again next week.

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Thanks to everyone for all the great support! Makes me think I could do it again!

The Reason You Come said...

I like your vlog! It's so honest, and I can totally relate with the anxiety. Please do more! I also hate having to do some grooming in preparation for vlogging. I like not having to worry about my hair, but I feel I have to when I'm in front of the camera. I think sweaty hands are part of the deal.

patchofblue said...

You did great! One thing I'm seeing on a lot of vlogs is that the antisocials (aka ME) are coming out of hiding and I love it! Free therapy, woohooo!

Galit Breen said...

I *love* how transparent you were in this! So honest, so real. Will you be my friend? :)

Also, I adore your hat!

Hello! I'm Kate. said...

I think this is awesome!

Way to go on fighting through the sweaty palms!

And you should see my hair today-it's awful!!!

Tatter Scoops said...

Oh I totally am a chickin' too, lady! So I can relate to the palm sweating :D But you did a great job! Hope to see you around ;)

Paulette said...

You are just awesome!! It totally gets easier. For the record, I don't do my hair everyday, I totally rock the pony tail or quick up bun/butterfly clip thing.

Keda said...

Good for you! I have been thinking about blogging for a while now, just have not done it yet. I figure I need some beauty sleep first, then I need to pick a topic because you should kind off have a theme instead of just randomly talking about stuff which is not bad but it won't get those return visitors...
