Got Talent?

If you've hung around here long enough, you know I love creating videos and viewing other bloggers' videos.  I think videos are a fabulous way to get a sense of the person behind the written words.  Well, I've been thinking the last few weeks that it would fun to get my readers involved with a little video participation and maybe get to know you a little better.  You'd enjoy that too, wouldn't you?

So... do you have a talent?  Sure you do.  Everyone has at least one.  Maybe you sing, play an instrument, do celebrity imitations, or know how to whip up something special in the kitchen.  I don't know what your "thing" is, but I sure would love to see it.  That's why I'm hosting the Got Talent? blog carnival on Friday, November 21st.

All you have to do is create a video of you, your spouse, your kids... goodness, it could even be your dog, if you're that desperate... performing a special talent.  Just be sure to keep it clean.  You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you like.  Then on November 21 I'll put up a Mr. Linky, and you can link your blog post up to the carnival.  (I sure hope I can figure out how to do a Mr. Linky, or we're going to be in big trouble.) 

Please don't be shy.  Really.  We'll love whatever you do.  Just relax and have fun with it. 

I'm giving you about 10 days to put it together, so do some brainstorming and then get recording.  I'm still mulling what my video is going to be, but I've got a pretty good idea.

Do me a favor?  Spread the word about Got Talent? by grabbing the button for your blog sidebar and linking to my blog.  Feel free to blog about it, too.  I'd be ever so appreciative. 

I'm so excited!  I can hardly wait!

P.S.  If you don't have a blog but would like to make a video anyway, you could always provide the link to your video on Vimeo, YouTube or wherever yours is hosted. 


  1. Oh my. This'll take about 3 more guts than I have. I'll try to find them though, and come up with something. I've never made a video of myself before!

  2. Okay, I grabbed it. You may want to post the code for it (I found it after digging through your source code). Posting the button does not guarantee that I'll post a video, but I will definitely be promoting it.

  3. Thanks, Ronnica.

    Hopefully I have the code up and it's useable.
