Is motivation supposed to be an “early bird gets the worm” kind of thing? I usually post in the A.M., but life got in the way again. WHoopsie.
I don’t have any workouts or words of inspiration for you today, but I do have this challenge I’ll be attempting for the month of October. (My proverbial plate has turned into two plates this month- so we’ll see how well this goes…)
It’s called Vlogtober. Basically, you film a vlog every day for the month, (very similar to the August VEDA challenge). Topics are up to you…however a FitFluential ambassador, Molly, has suggested we adhere to topics for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. (Thank heavens!)
I’m so bad when it comes to vlogging. I’m not an attention whore and unless I have something I truly would like to advocate, I’m usually pretty under the radar.
I’ve been so desperately wanting to change that as if I’m planning to own my own business in the near future, I’m going to have to be obsessed with myself (well, not really, but you know what I mean, right?) and what I truly believe in. Hence, I need these kinds of in front of the camera experiences.
Today’s vlog is super soft and monotone. I filmed this at home and was told I MUST BE QUIET. If you know me…quiet is never a problem. Being LOUD is.
The benefits of vlogging VS. blogging:
1. The REAL you. Your audience is able to see you with some emphasis and emotion, rather than just text.
2. Increased readership. Some people are readers, some people are watchers. With vlogs, your able to get those you wouldn’t normally interest and possibly even convert them over to a dedicated reader.
3. Entertainment– no explanation needed. If you have an interesting speaking style or have a sense of humor, it’s a win.
4. Informative yet persuasive and credulous. Speaking of an experience or product is proven to convince people over just plain text. Think about it…when some one writes, CALL NOW. VS. CALL NOW with a smile and a testament of belief. (very basic and salesy- but you get the idea)
So on with the show…and I suppose now that I’m perusing the title of the vlog again…it is motivational. Goals. What are yours for the month? (PS- Can someone please tell me why my youtube embed codes are all of a sudden not working???)
