Hello Frances Flynn Thorsen ! Long time since we've connected.  Personally I prefer the live action video style.  Great to see you in the rain!

That video is the easiest to make. I created that video in about 20 minutes.

I would actually do a live, on camera video rather than these automated productions. I think your friends and clients would appreciate seeing the real you. They're going t meet you face to face eventually!

You have given me a great idea for content. I'm going to look back at old posts and convert them to video. Thanks!

I agree...I'd like to do the In person kind...but not everyone is "camera ready!"

These are great ideas, Frances, and I prefer the live action. I am still a fan of creating a live video...which reminds me that I need to do more of them as it's been awhile.

I'm not at a loss for content. I'm at a loss for getting my schedule down so I can get it all done. 

But past blogs are certainly a great idea for blog posts. And you can do the opposite as well...take a video, and it transcribed and make it a blog post along with the video. 

So many things so little time....

Video is so important and you're right we can make it easier on ourselves by repurposing our blog posts.
