TTOMT 1: Accents

Alright internet, here we go! In an attempt to do something worthwhile with my life and try something new, I’m launching a weekly vlog (do people say vlog anymore?) called Travel Talk on My Table (TTOMT). It’s inspired by this amazing twitter forum called #ttot (Travel Talk on Twitter) that brings together  hundreds (thousands?) of strangerbloggers with a different travel topic each week. If you have any interest in travel or watching some great social media happenings, I’d encourage you to check out the #ttot hashtag on Tuesdays at 9:30am and 9:30pm.

Ugh. Leave it to me to take a short intro paragraph and make it unnecessarily long.

So here’s my first installment of ttomt! This week I’m thinkin’ about accents. Bam!

Bear with me regarding the quality, editing, lack of professionalism and general tangents. I’m learning! 

Ed: here’s the link to the video I talk about in the video. Give it a watch! It’s a good ad.  (YOU KNOW I CAN’T GRAB YOUR GHOST CHUPS!)

If it made you chuckle, share it with your friends!

  1. The video is a little clunky, but not bad for the first try. I say a couple of reshoots were in order, or scripting so avoid the long pauses as you try to figure out what to say. 🙂 But I think you have some promise.

    • Scripting? Oh lord it’d be even worse with scripting! Haha but yeah, definitely needs a bit of tweaking (and it would be great if it didn’t lag as I was shooting/editing/making it) and I’ll work on making it something awesome. Thanks for your thoughts 🙂

      • I tried to do a video bit once so I completely understand the lag issues. And I can see how scripting.
        I think you got something awesome here. 🙂 I can’t wait for the next one!

  2. Yes girl yes!!!! Keep this up…it’s your first go and you kicked butt! LOVE the idea of drinking out of a wine bottle (it’s also a good way of preventing the ‘why aren’t you drinking’ discussion if your fellow dorm-mates are alcoholics 😉

  3. This was a fun video. You’re finding your feet here and i think that’s what makes it great. You came across as sweet, genuine, and funny. The idea of people seeing you drink water out of a wine bottle at 8am is great. I’m picturing a shot of you and 2 other girls outside a yoga studio chatting with yoga mats over your shoulders while they have water bottles and you have a nice chardonnay. That should be a profile pic! Good luck on your next vid.
