Have you ever wondered how I put my Sunday Vlogs together? They all start with a blog post, and here’s how they start.
Part 1 - Putting together a Blog Post: Like all good things, they grow out of an idea. Then I search for images to illustrate them. I have two examples for you to see. Pick one or look at both.
#1. The idea and images for zero gravity.
#2. The ideas and images for lost/devastated and found/grateful. Link:
Part 2 - Writing the Blog Post: Once I have my idea and the images, I write the post. It’s like typing from one picture to the next, like connecting the dots on a road map.
Sometimes I add or delete images. Other times I need to do a little more research before I can write. That usually means googling things like, ‘What is zero gravity?’ or ‘How do I find something I’ve lost?’
#1. My Blog Post – The Search for Zero Gravity
#2. My Blog Post – From Lost/Devastated to Found/Grateful
Part 3 – Scripting Saturday Reads Videos: I wrote about it first, because it’s shorter. It’s only one page that I have to get ready by Saturday at 4PM. My Sunday Vlogs are much longer, usually 3-5 pages, but the process is a lot alike . . . I write a script, revise it, video tape, post the video on Facebook, and then put out the word on social media.
The two big differences – 1. I pick a book that matches my Sunday Vlog. 2. I don’t have to prepare a power point slide show. All I have to do is share the book . . . it has all the pictures I’ll need, and more. I’m not allowed to read the whole book . . . because of copyright.

When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
