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 well. I'm not the type to videotape, say, the cat running around on the piano. However, where I hope to contribute is to open up the videoblogging myth, and show people that anyone can do it. Alas, I've been talking into a mike since I was 12, but have been videoblogging for only 1 month. ** If anyone is interested in seeing an example of my blabby, gabby videoblogging, check at http://blogdj.blogspot.com - In this blog, I am currently promoting the Big Seminar, which I also promote at http://www.bigseminar4.info - I use the blog as a marketing vehicle AND an experiemental post. It is, indeed, my first experiment in blogging, so it is, unfortunately, the only example I currently have. I discovered the Userplane beta, and have even talked to Michael there. However, I think he's underestimating the power of the application, and that's one of the reasons why I was trying to contact Sean, as he may know another videoblogging tool to which I might be able to open the potential marketing eyes' of others. Yep, this was going to be a short intro, but - alas - remember the (curse) of gab, huh? :-) So, I'll leave it to everyone else.....what are you currently using your blogs for (personal, biz, etc.), what easy tools do you use, and what future interests for vblogging do either YOU have, or see for the format? Let the discussions begin! Thanks, and God Bless, Dave
