I sat down to write this week’s blog post and a huge case of writers block struck.
As I sat and started at my blank computer screen, my anxiety started to creep in. Not only was I not getting my blog post done for the week, but I felt like I was wasting my precious kid-free work time.
I decided to close my computer and move on to another project off my list.
I have been wanting to set up a studio in my house to shoot videos for some fun upcoming project here at meganflatt.com. (shh…we might be going to summer camp for moms in just a few weeks!)
I figured since I wasn’t making any headway on my blog post, that now was as goods as time as any to set everything up and practice.
Pretty soon I had the living room furniture moved, the rug rolled up and the dogs thoroughly confused!
Taking the lessons I had learned from jodyjelas.com, I set up hardware store lights on garage sale light stands and my iphone on a tripod.
And before I knew it, my living room looked like this (see picture above!)
I tested out the lights and sound. And low and behold….it worked!
Everything I had learned from other online experts was coming together in my own living room.
I had learned to do everything I was doing by google-ing, following, watching, reading and learning from someone online.
And I had a HUGE ah ha. Two of them actually…
So I decided to share my two lessons in my “practice video blog.”
