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.
