It's just a quick one-minute "video snapshot" of a trip to this popular beach called Boracay in the Philippines. Nothing grand. In fact, it's probably the shortest and simplest video on file over at FreshWave.TV. And, I recognise its faults. It doesn't matter.
One thing I remember when I started experimenting with multimedia blogging was that I just wanted to learn. To have fun. To enjoy the process. To share --- and to connect. But somehow, both with podcasting and vlogging, I ended up feeling the pressure to create great stuff. And, the more I thought about it, the less I managed to do it.
That's why I stopped podcasting. And, that's why in 2006, there were only TWO measly videos published on FreshWave.TV. Agh.
So yes, I decided that from hereon, I'm hoping to do more podcasts and videos. They won't always be great and polished. In fact, I imagine I'd end up creating a lot of fluff. But, when it comes to podcasting and vlogging, I think I need to apply the same lesson that I learned in writing and painting --- Creating more leads to creating better. In order to come up with great things, one must be able to put up with rubbish. One just needs to keep on going, to keep on creating.
Anyway, if you don't feel like going to FWTV's page, you can also watch the video right here:
