I said last night that it would be a few weeks before I would be able to start doing this. But that doesn’t stop me from planning, I’m going to spend a few minutes each day researching the topic of the week. The aim is to be able to do a 3-5 minute video. The thing that is bugging me, is the order, for the most part I am OK with the sequence I have – it’s fairly logical, it forms an almost circular pattern.
The problem, that there is one place, actually, it’s position 9 Rowner Church. I know almost nothing about it, except I think it is one of the oldest churches in the area. Of course, it’s only a thought. Now, what I could do is the research and the visit, and then keep it until it’s the sequence.
In reality, I’ve already done this with the Motte & Bailey, which is at position 12. I’m not even sure that I took some pictures, but what I do know is that the video is dire – not the quality, the GoPro 9 is superb, but my presentation is very, very feeble. My presentation technique is, to put it mildly, pathetic.
Now, if you are on facebook, do a search for a page – GB3IW, don’t worry about what it is, unless you are a licensed radio amateur, if you are licensed and haven’t heard of GB3IW it’s probably the best repeater in the country. Every Thursday night, I run the Thursday Night Net for the Isle of Wight Radio Society. The thing is that I do a Facebook Live – you won’t be interested in the bulk of the video (there are almost literally hundreds of them). The reason I’m talking about it is because I use the first minute to have a chat. Now, I’m getting used to it, I feel relaxed when doing it. That’s the kind of feeling I want to have when doing my vlogs, relaxed and confident. Practice won’t hurt, and if I don’t like it, I have the chance to do it again.

I thought the vlog you did on the train tunnel was very professional. The quality of the presentation, picture and sound was as good as any on the BBC! Looking forward to seeing your new project
Thanks Clive. The kit (GoPro hero 9) and a lavelle lapel mike are both good kit, I was much less impressed with my personal style, which struck me as very “artificial”, not really me. I’m trying to get over that. Part of it is not saying stuff on the fly, knowing what I’m going to say and being sure of my facts.
