Well firstly it's easier and I'm lazy. Secondly, I like to write and I haven't done it enough lately. I think it's one of those things that not enough people do, like reading. I don't know how people can go through their whole lives never having read a book. Anyway the third and final reason for a written blog is I'm thinking of putting up less Vlogs in the traditional sense (if there is such a thing as a 'traditional vlog'). I still want to talk on camera, in fact more so now than ever, but I want to aim more towards comedy videos or at least interesting things, less personal I suppose, and so this can be a more personal place.
To be honest I'm not sure how I'm going to sell this. I just wanted to start writing again. I don't think I'll advertise it much, this is for me, not to get viewers like the myspace and youtube accounts. I suppose I should explain, though most of you will probably have come from one of those sites and will know me at least a little, allow me to give a few words to any total newcomers; Hello! My name is Dave and I have a band called 'Blue Skies'. Yes that should do.
So today I reached a bit of a milestone over on YouTube; 1000 subscribers! I also got my first little cameo in a studentdotcom video, which is great. It's wonderful when people you've been watching for a while notice your channel, even better subscribe, and even better than that ask you to be involved in something. When their own video is at stake you know they aren't just being nice - they actually think you are good!
Also, yesterday I put up a video responding to Brett's impersonations competition... I recorded a song in the style of davedays, which was fun! It's going down really well, which is always good. I'm currently undecided as to whether I should send davedays a message about it!
Well anyway, I think I'm getting better at making videos, and I'm considering getting a proper camera to lift some of the restrictions I have at the moment. It's my birthday in three weeks, that sounds like the perfect opportunity. I can only hope I will get better at writing as well... I used to be good I'm sure! I've been writing in too many comment boxes and msn conversations - it's all I can do not to say 'lol' or compose some kind of face out of letters at the end of each sentence!
If anyone reads this I think you can leave comments if you want, I'll be honest: I'm not sure how this site works.
I'll figure it out. I think that's enough for now anyway.
Until next time. x
