Six Things You Should Know: An Amazing Vlog Starring Yours Truly

8.26.2013

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I was tagged in a blogging game by Casey, Rachel, Emily, and Michelle. Thanks, ladies! Instead of writing out answers to all their questions, I decided to face my vlogging fear and pick six questions to answer in a vlog! 

I think this one's better than the last one I attempted and then didn't post. This is thanks to all of your helpful advice. I let Jordan watch this one, and he said it was "not the worst vlog he'd ever seen." I'm just going to chalk that up as a Win and move along.

Here are the questions I answered:

1. What recently made you laugh out loud? (:34)
2. What is your favorite thing about yourself? (1:20)
3. What did you do last Friday night? (1:46)
4. What is your biggest pet peeve? (2:15)
5. What is your favorite book? (3:05)
6. Something you don't know about me.* (3:32)


Things to note: 
-When I made this, I was going through some kind of allergy attack. I don't think my voice normally sounds so scratchy.
-I put absolutely no effort into doing my hair. I know that's obvious, but I just wanted you to know that I know.
-I am talking fast because I'm nervous. Hopefully it isn't too hard to understand me.
-*I realize that 5 ounces does not equal half a pound. I was rounding. Go with it.


I'm tagging the following ladies in this game! I'm too lazy to think of new questions, so feel free to make some up or just answer the six above. Or don't answer any if you don't want to. It's whatever. 

You get extra points in my Book of Awesome if you answer the questions in a vlog. Seriously, I would love you forever. Let's all make awkward blog videos together! Everyone's doing it.

  5. OMG, I had to make video updates for Hoka One One, while I was training for Boston this year, and they were horrible! I was so awkward, kept saying um, and I looked so stupid. I just quit watching them, because I hated how they all turned out. Hoka STILL hasn't done anything with them, probably because I sucked so bad, LOL!

  8. Love the vlog, Amanda! It reminded me of you telling stories in college that were always just as animated. One thing I did note...your face went angry when you talked about the overuse of "literally"...made me laugh!

  10. I literally loved the vlog and I love Anne of Greene Gables. =) Your new blog header is pretty too. Do you do your own blog design?

  11. I loved the vlog! Lol. I also love Anne of Green Gables! I think 90% of women would swoon for Gilbert. He's just wonderful like that. Literally. ;) Yeah. I hate when people misuse "literally" almost as much as I hate the word (or fake word) "conversate."

  17. Q: "HEY! THAT'S AMANDA! I'm telling Daddy I saw her on the cm'puter."

    You are totally just not who I thought you'd be. I'm never reading your blog again.

    Said no one, ever.

  22. Yay for the vlog! You did great and even though I suck balls at making mine shorter than 10 minutes I hardly watch anything longer than 5, so 4 minutes is a great cut-off time.

    I literally just wrote that comment.

  23. Haha, you had me laughing out loud! I love that you crack yourself up. And I am totally with you on Gilbert Blythe. I would marry him in a heartbeat. But not literally ;)

  26. Does my blog LITERALLY want you to clay your eyes out, because it's LITERALLY full of copy-editing mistakes? I hope not, because I LITERALLY want to be friends with you for life. I couldn't help myself, I just couldn't. Hope we can still be friend! :)
