Hi everyone, from blogDJ, Dave
A howdy-do, to all of you! :-) It's Dave, aka the blog DJ - however, I may be the only DJ who does NOT post mp3's of songs on my blog. My life story, wrapped up in an easy-to-chew bite-sized chunk... I've been a DJ for almost 20 years, both on radio and for private functions. My passion has always been to be in front of a microphone, however, I have become more involved in the marketing aspect of it over the last 6+ years, using my gift (or curse?) of gab as the vehicle. I have been using audio online to assist myself (and others) in marketing their products, and have been using instant flash audio online for the better part of 18 months. However, in the past few months, I've been increasingly interested in finding a way to get the same instantaneous benefits from flash video. That is, a way where people can convey their messages using video. Hence, my discovery of videoblogging. With that in mind, I searched and searched, and stumbled across Jay's name online, as well as Sean Gilligan's. Tried to contact Sean via mail (did ya get it, Sean?), but may not have had the correct address. Contacted Jay, and he said joining the group would be a wonderful thing, so here I am! :-) Indeed, my videos are more of an "infomercial" style, although I can also include usable content in them as...

Re: Hello Videoblogers
Hi, Eric - Don't know if this answers your questions or not, but I use a Sharp HDD/DVD recorder, which has 80GB Hard Drive plus, of course DVD capabilties. This baby has many inputs and outputs, and I've been able to experiment with converting footage to the videoblog. A great value for the money (it's amazing how much this technology has dropped in price). Hope I helped! - DJ Dave - - - - --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, "Eric Botticelli" <eric9897@y...> wrote: > > --- In email@example.com, Jay dedman <jay.dedman@g...> wrote: > > do you use Tivo(or some kind of Persoanl Recorder) to tape CSPAN? > > or is everything you tape done on the fly? > > > > and posting regulalrly is the way to go. > > > > > For now, I just turn on my VCR when I hear something interesting will > be on (and also at random intervals), and I'll let it play in the > backgroun untill I hear things getting interesting. > Once the technology for stand alone harddrive recorders become better > (i.e. no monthly fees; a bit cheaper) I'll be investing in one with a > nice size hard drive. > > does anyone know of a standalone digital video recorder that will just > record like a vcr records? without charging you for a monthly service > fee?)

Re: Hello Videoblogers
Eric - I got very lucky, because I got mine online at CircuitCity.com, of all places, and got it for $389 with 2-day shipping included. And that was a few months ago. Gotta think someone will be having a Christmas sale, and - worst comes to worse - a lot of people will be having AFTER Christmas sales. Getting the feed from the HDD produces a better picture, I've found. Now if I can get my wife to erase the last season of Sex and the City off the HDD... :-) --Dave --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, "Eric Botticelli" <eric9897@y...> wrote: > > --- In email@example.com, "db" <mrstuneman@y...> wrote: > > > > Hi, Eric - > > Don't know if this answers your questions or not, but I use a Sharp > > HDD/DVD recorder, which has 80GB Hard Drive plus, of course DVD > > capabilties.

Re: VBlog hosting?
Hi, Jason Funny you should mention that...that is something that I am researching right now. I'm heading to a conference in a few days, and hope to have some answers when I get back. But would love to know if anyone in the group could be the answers to the punch! :-) --DJ Dave = = = = = = = = --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, "Jason R.
