Writing for a site every week can be challenging. I spend a lot of time thinking, “What am I going to write about?” or “How can I make this lesbionic?” or “Is that a sea monkey in my water glass?” You will be relieved to know (as I was) that it was not a sea monkey in my glass though maybe a sea monkey would be better than backwash from a kid who shared your glass without your knowledge.
So, I was talking with a couple of the editors here at Lesbian Family and the idea of multimedia content came up and I said, “I will do a vlog!” and they said, “That’s a great idea!” though maybe they were in a sleep-deprived delirium and will soon regret their encouragement.
I have never really vlogged before and I really hope that I will get better. You might hope I get better too. My plan was to set a timer for 3 minutes and just talk about a topic. As I found today, 3 minutes is not very long…especially when you ramble.
This is obviously unscripted and that will not change. Just think of these vlogs as little surprises! They will be like the prizes you get in the bottom of cereal boxes. Actually, I don’t even know if they still do that.
I remember the best prize I got in Cap’n Crunch – a tiny blue plastic submarine that you could fill with baking soda which would then make it dive and surface in the bathtub.
But not all prizes can be submarines – sometimes, you get a piece of cardboard with a picture of Cap’n Crunch.
Sometimes these vlogs might be adorable submarines and sometimes they might be pieces of cardboard to be thrown away immediately.
There. I have issued the necessary disclaimer.
Wait – one more disclaimer! I really didn’t mean to talk about boobs. I meant to talk about breastfeeding. Unscripted stuff is hard.
On with the show…
