This is a new, original, video-based linky that I have devised to encourage more bloggers to have a go at creating a video blog post.
It's easier than you might think, honest. I was a little daunted by the idea of video blogging, or vlogging, when I first began my blog. But, having experimented a few times, I can assure you it can add an extra dimension to your blog posts and can also be lots of fun.
Don't have a video camera? No problem, you can use the video camera on your phone.
Don't have any video editing equipment? If your computer doesn't have Windows Movie Maker or iMovie, you can always use YouTube's video editor.
So, will you have a go?
Every two months, I'll post up a new challenge. Your videos can be about anything related to that topic and can be filmed any way you like.
The first "Show Real" challenge is called 'One Fine Day'.
Your video can be about anything that turns an ordinary day into a great day for you; is it taking the kids to the park? Having a lie-in or a cup of tea/coffee in bed first thing? Getting some child-free time to relax or let your hair down? Having a rant to get something off your chest?
You can make your video as long or short as you like and film it however you want - there are no restrictions and it's completely up to you.
Here is my contribution to this first video challenge. My 'one fine day' moments are from my last day at home before returning to work:
