Making Collard Green & Black-Eyed Pea Soup (VloMo10 Day 3)

Nov 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Video, Vlogging

Today’s VloMo video comes courtesy of my Canon Rebel T1i. I’ve never shot a video using my SLR camera before, so I wanted to give it a try. It’s not easy because the camera doesn’t self focus if you move in or out. You have to focus the camera and then shoot, so I have […]

Okay, someone asked, so here is my list of my top 10 apps. I’ve been rockin’ the Motorola Droid for about 7 months now. I love this phone, even though I covet the HTC Droid Incredible. But things just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t covet some piece of technology even when I have a […]

They call it NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. Then there is another group participating in NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month. Yeah, they’re […]
