Today’s video is going to give you some insight as to why I started doing videos and why I continue to do them. It’s plain and simple; videos have some benefits that plain text blog post don’t. This isn’t to say that you should totally stop writing and just sit in front of a camera all day. Lord knows I couldn’t do that; no one would want to hear all that would come out of my mouth. Writing is a great way to “edit” your thoughts before you share them. In fact, I suggest that you write out a script or at least your ideas before you start recording.
Ok, enough about that…on with the video! Be prepared, there is “homework” at the end. The homework is aimed at convincing non videoing bloggers to get started, but those of you already doing video can still do it…you might just find some undiscovered gems.
Did you find a reason that just smacked you in the face and made you think…”Dang, I’m getting left behind“? I mean if getting more eyes and/or ears to listen to the message you want to get out isn’t enough…then I don’t know what is. That is unless you just blog to hear yourself type.

If you have any questions be sure to leave them in the comment section. Also, be sure to come back over after you do the homework and let us know if you have found some places you could be making a show. You don’t need to tell us your phrases…just tell us that you have found openings!
