The Blog and The Spouse - In Our House!

By
Education & Training with Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus

This past weekend, I did a post and found out that there may be some REAL issues with Blogging and Spouses! Not mine of course, well... there have been days....LOL! In light of a somewhat humorous post I put up on Saturday, I wanted to follow-up with what really happened this past weekend.

When I wrote the post "Mama Says NO BLOGGING," it was somewhat of a joke, but the reality was, my wife wanted me off the work computer, and in the recording studio to finish one of her songs. It's been an ongoing project for the past couple weeks. Music, it's our other "shared" passion!

In the past, I have always written the music, and she does a great job writing the lyrics and performing the songs. This time, she has written the entire song herself. She finally got me away from the computer long enough this weekend to produce this Video. (Amateur of Course) I know you are probably all sick of hearing me talk about video, and Real Estate interviews, virtual tours, mixpo, youtube, etc. etc. But this one is different. Why? Cause it's for my sweetheart!

We used the MacBook Pro Laptop to record all the tracks in our home studio, then we shot the Video yesterday as we drove around the neighborhood. I uploaded it and did a final mix in Mixpo, and here's what we came up with for her "First Ever" Music Video. WooHoo!! I am very proud of my wife and very excited for her, enough so that I just had to Blog about it! I really enjoyed making this for her, and now just wanted to share. This is her passion and dream!

I've written many posts about everything else in life, now it's time to dedicate a post to my Beautiful, Loving, Supportive, Talented, Gifted, Mother of my Children and Soul Mate! My wife Debra! (I love you Princess!) I have never seen her as happy as she was tonight when I played this video for her the very first time. The name of her song is called "All I Need"

Wonderful - the video and the story.  I had no idea you were a musician.  So glad you were 'forced' to take the weekend off the computer - Debra sings like an angel.  And watching makes me homesick for Fairfield.

Mike - thanks, we are proud but still humbled.  We have never put anything like this out there before, so it was a test of more than just faith.  Some great things have already come from this, and some lives have been touched, this is why we are so humbled!  We are blessed...and so are you!   Thanks Mike, have a great weekend!  :-)

Great job as always. Music and lyrics were superb. The video was excellent. What did you use to shoot it?  The edit was good too. Congrats on a super first effort.

She needs a good agent Brad like yesterday :) (and I don't mean Real Estate). seriously talk to Adam from NY if you haven't already - he had ties to music productions AR is too small for you both ( no offense lol ) I'd buy her CD!

Sincerely,

Grace

BRAD - It's amazing what can be done without breaking the bank.  Good quality on the video, and the recording sounds good too.  No artist has an excuse anymore for not making a video.  In fact, aspiring artists should be doing this as a way to showcase their talents.  Nicely done.

Brad, Your wife has a beautiful voice and the song sounds like something that could hit the top of the charts.  It was so sweet of you to do this for your wife.  I also liked the way the video was done.  I don't usually watch videos so for me to not only watch it, but see it all the way through was something.

Gail - thanks so much, that means alot to us both.  We used AR Video for this one and it tracks how many watch and how many don't. Even breaks it down by percentage.  Thank you for the comment and for watching the whole thing.  Maybe someday....well....we'll just keep on trying...  :-)

Man I love the analytics from ActiveRain Video, I have never seen the ability to track this information before with any other video application. Very cool stuff in these very cool times!!  :-)

Lynne - thank you, this was our first video attempt, but it was fun and a great place to start with incorporating video to some of our music.  Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for watching, listening, and taking the time to comment. :-)
