Well, my dear friends I bet you never thought you’d see the words Quiet Time and You Tube in the same sentence, right? Better still -here is a beautiful irony, I never thought the day would come when I would actually turn a camera on myself (or a tablet, more accurately) and talk to you all there in the Blogosphere as though you all were sitting with me, face to face…but ya’ll the time has come.
I want you to know that it’s OK if you never watch a video I make, I will NOT hold it against you! You see, sometime last year I began watching some
crazy wonderful folks who love to share their planner love on You Tube. Now I have been a planner girl my whole life but there was so much inspiration and creativity, not to mention peeks into many planners and I found myself smitten.
Soon, washing dishes became You Tube planner video watching time. All of a sudden washing the dishes was a blast! There are many crafters , planners, and I dare say Journal folks as well on You Tube. I have not dared go often to Journal Land on You Tube, as I may never escape!
I have viewed just a couple, and I am using self-control to not delve further for fear of being sucked into You Tube land forever…and she was never heard from again.
Recently, I began using the Arc Notebook System by Staples. I love it and decided to jump in and share my Arc journey through You Tube. I had considered doing a Planner series here and was considering doing short Coffee Chat videos occasionally sharing journals.
Well, it’s just like me to jump in the deep end and swim with the sharks! I learn best by just jumping in, because otherwise…I just will NEVER do anything. So for better or worse…I went forward in my new-found Arc enthusiasm and jumped in.
I am still “practicing” publicly…but I wanted to let you know in the days ahead I hope you will join me as I share a coffee and some thoughts through the world-wide web via You Tube.
I honestly am NOT a perfectionist (obviously!)- one peek at my videos will tell you that.
I saw a friend at church today, who said she had watched my video and it was exactly like sitting across the table from me…and she has done that many times so there you have it! My goal is not to impress you with my amazing techy ability (I still have no idea what I am doing) , snazzy speaking (ha and ha!) or my hair and makeup (snort!) … you will get me the way I am…just me, Dawn. Of course the enthusiasm is there. I probably won’t make a video for you if I am feeling down…obviously, but you will get the girl behind the words here.
Well, today I will share with you this peek into my Arc Quiet Time Notebook. It is a short video and not a face to face one. But I promise I will let you know when I do the Coffee Chat video, and hope you will join me. Thanks, Friends!
