Branching Out

So, as most of you know, I’ve got a few new hats recently. Not actual hats that you wear on your head, I mean it in the metaphorical sense. I’ve been massively neglecting my blog lately, a well as leaving Maternity Matters all to Susanne, who as usual has been an angel, but some stuff’s been going on lately that I won’t go into here which has left me feeling rather detached from my online bits. Anyway, I’m trying to get back into the swing of everything now, and hopefully I’ll be able to juggle things a bit better.

So, my newest hat is that of vlogger for, where I’m reviewing toys and stuff. This is my first ever video:

(You’ll have to click on the URL, ’cause quite frankly, WordPress can dick-off if they think I’m paying THIRTY FIVE clams for a ‘Video Upgrade’ just so I can embed video on my page)

Vlogging has taught me a few things;

1. Like most people, I despise the sound of my own voice. I’m genuinely horrified that I sound like that when I talk.

2. I’m never wearing that grey jumper again.

3. My facial expressions are really obnoxious

4. I need to get my teeth done. Serious cosmetic dentistry needed.

But aside from all of that, I enjoyed doing the vlog, I get quite a kick out of seeing my mug on the internet, and I really do like Toffee the Pony! are looking for more vloggers to add to the family, so if you’ve got the chops (or simply don’t mind the sound of your own voice/know how to dress yourself/don’t want to punch yourself in the face/don’t have horribly small teeth), give it a go! It just takes a half decent camera, a basic grasp of what you want to say and away you go! It feels quite natural, talking to an inanimate object, after a while, but maybe that’s just the long¬†family history of insanity coming out in me…

Nip over to the page and have a look for yourself. What have you got to lose?*

*(Dignity, self-respect and esteem, notwithstanding)

  1. Shitting hell! I just tried watching your vlog but that pony FREAKED ME OUT!! WTF is that about?? It blinks in a really sinister way! YOU were absolutely fine, but that pony…? Nah mate, not cool. NOT COOL.

    BTW I am not vlogging. No siree. For same reason as Hannah (see above). I sound like a loon.

  2. I’ve wanted to do this, but I sound completely ruddy ridiculous. Much worse than anyone else known to man. Guaranteed.

  3. Hysterical! I have a green t-shirt that I thought I looked marvellous in; not my usual colour but brighter and perkier. I saw three photos of myself from different occasions wearing it and have binned it; I look the size of a heffalump in it!
