Oh, oh, oh. There was a time, there was a moment, when my life focus was local-local-local. I created a local blog hub with hundreds of local bloggers listed, held monthly parties for bloggers and their readers, made spreadsheets of local hashtags to use for social media, and truly–truly–tried to juice up and liven up the potential to get to know our local community better, to be more informed, to be more connected … and to have opportunities to do so.
I created a local calendar site (TotallyHoco, no longer active), and in my desire to promote it, created this one-minute explainer video.
It was a first for me (in 2014) to write a script, record it and get the whole project completed. Here it is.
Funny, as I look back on this video and read the comments. The script starts with “Do you live in Howard County?” Seems a couple people were seriously unnerved that “I” knew where they lived when this video showed up in their YouTube suggested videos list.
And then I made THIS video explaining how I created an explainer video, which, back in 2014, were a fairly new thing.
