Introducing Casual Friday and My Very First Vlog Entry Ever!

Thank goodness it is Friday!  Welcome to my very first Casual Friday.  This is a Vlogging meme that will come to you via The Bantering Blonde every Friday .... unless it totally sucks and nobody participates and I'm all alone making an ass of myself on video.  Then it'll just have to become Casual Friday with Bantering Blonde where I will still make an ass of myself on video....

There are no strict rules for participating in Casual Friday.  It is casual though, so no major make-overs showing us all up with your purtiness, or I'll have to go all bitchy blonde on you.  In this Vlog entry I just grabbed the one clean black t-shirt I had, combed my hair and put on some mascara and lip gloss.  I would love it if you would Vlog, but if you are skeeeeered like I was, you can still participate.  Just write a casual post about somethin' fun that you would Vlog about if you had the guts!  

If you would be so kind to comment on my Vloggyness and then include a link to Bantering Blonde somewhere in your posting I'd surely appreciate it!  

(Major shout out to Mr. Linky for helping me with my questions yesterday, and to my new BFF Leah Segedie at for talking me of the ledge and helping me imbed this video so that I'm not all slow motion hack vlogger in my very first entry!)

    Very cute. You are lovely. I am not going to do it this Friday, but I may in the future. I have done a vlog meme before called I See What You're Saying, and it was a blast. I had to do SO many takes before I was happy with the turnout. LOL. It looks like you got it all in one take. You did great.

    I don't have the guts! Besides, I think you'll have a problem understanding my accent!

    This was beyond great. You killed it! I think this is a great idea. Once you've done the initial video, and figured it out, and realized that you won't die if people see you it definitely gets easier and, gasp, fun :)

    And that was a major shout out! THANKS!

    Oh... keep doing the friday vlog even if no one joins you. Your adorable. I like hiding. But, I like watching vlogs.

    You are adorable!!!! Its great to see the "face" behind the Bantering Blonde.

    Great idea, but I think I will just lurk for awhile.
    Too new.........I'm lucky I can figure out how to even generate a post!!!

    OMG you're so cute! no reason to be skeered. I thought you were great.

    I was totally vague with my last post b/c the details would gross you out! But thank you for being concerned! I feel much better today, yesterday was the first day since that I started to really feel better. Going to the doctor on Monday so we'll see how it goes.

    I don't have a video camera, or video computer or whatever it is that you would record yourself on (lol I'm a nerd sorry) but I will be by every Friday to see your latest (and prob more often than just every friday)

    Blonde Love! ~ Michelle

    This sounds like so much fun. But I would have to find my webcam, find the software, install it... Yeah, more work than I can do right now. Maybe I will catch up with you in a week or 2. Love the vlog tho.

    Sounds like a fun meme. I'm not sure I'm that brave however! I'll be back to see your vlogs though.

    Okay, so now I have to actually meet you. Because I love that video. Where do you live again? I'm coming. :)

    I don't know how to do all this video stuff... so there is not a big chance I'll ever vlog anything. But then, I like a good challenge... so you might see me next Friday. LOL

    I love your video and I love this idea. I'm definitely going to do this. But I will wait til I get out of my jammies and shower.

    This is so cute! To bad I already posted today or I would do this! Oh well, always next week, right?

    You so totally rock!! I haven't a clue how to do a video. If Freckle figures it out maybe she can teach me. Then I'll think about joining you for casual Friday.

    I can assure you that I won't be vlogging from my bed, so if it's gonna happen it won't be until I'm on my feet again.

    You are so cute! You're not sweating - you're glowing! Thanks for your inspiring bravery. I'll see if I can get my nerve up to do this. I may just observe for a week or two :) But I think it's a great idea. May May for now!

    Fantastic idea, I need about three nights sleep and dark glasses before I attempt it. You're so pretty!

    Ew, it's a great idea, but I tried to do a vlog of own and all I can say is "EEEWWWWW." It was really aweful. I will have to keep practicing. You did a great job though! :)

    I am impressed!!
    You did fabulous for your first vlog and inspired me to get on my game. We just got a flipmino about 2 weeks ago and my hubby has been bugging me about shooting a video for my blog.

    I can't get past swallowing the idea down~ YET ~ But I imagine I'll try it out soon!!! This was way cool and maybe some day I'll join you for a casual Friday~

    What a great idea! I am SO late getting to read/watch this, though. You are so stinkin' cute on camera! Can't wait to see more vlogs from you!
