20SB Vlog Day

In just a few weeks, on Wednesday the 22nd of October, 20sb is going to hold it's first ever VLOG DAY!


A vlog is a video blog entry. Most 20sb members never post in video format, so this might be just the challenge you need to get your exploring a new medium of blogging.

Just film yourself answering the following questions:
  1. If you wrote an autobiography of your life in your 20s so far, what would the first chapter be called? What would the last chapter be called?
  2. Give us a tour... of anything! Your kitchen, your running route, your drawer full of mismatched socks, your favourite bar... anything goes. Just a guided tour.
  3. Tell us a story that is unique to you. It can be short or long, it can have happened today or when you were little. It has to be true and original.
Then post the video to your blog on October 22nd. (If you're wondering where you host the video file, I suggest vimeo or lots of people like youtube) Post a link to your blog here in the comments, and I'll round up a roll all the participants. 

If you're an anonymous blogger, you are still more than welcome to participate- but to keep your anonymity, you'll have to be a little more creative.

Have fun! See (and hear) you on the 22nd.

Okay sorry - third times a charm - I can't tell you how proud I am that I managed to upload this to my blog. I'm usually an idiot when it comes to these things!
