Beach Walk 255 OTR – Vloggies Come in Three’s

Our show won three vloggie awards tonight. Mahalo to all who supported us!

What a surprise! This is a beginning – of what, no one yet knows! It’s late in San Francisco. We’ll be back at the water tomorrow.

Thank you to Podtech for hosting this event, and love and hugs to all the videobloggers who are finding their voices and the techies who support us.

Wish you were here Secret Cameraman and Lexi!

Mahalo to all the lovely people who shared their love of Beach Walks with me. I really do believe we are starting a wonderful conversation. And mahalo to Zennie for helping me film the closing vloggie shot!

Beach Walk 202 – Embrace Your Challenge(r)s

Watching the movie Invincible reminded me of how much positive energy we can get from those who challenge us.

Some would say this is a formulaic, feel-good movie and they would be accurate. But formulas are useful to help us apply the mechanics in our own lives.

It’s tough to hold your own when the arrows are coming at you, as was the case this week with Podtech re: the proposed Vloggies videoblogging awards. But to see those arrows as supportive, at a deep, fundamental level instead of as an attack which is only on the surface, well, that’s college-level consciousness in my book!

Would you like to submit a guest Beach Walks episode? We’d like to start featuring new voices (and take my mom’s advice to have a day off now and then.)

If you would like to submit a show, here are the guidelines:
* 3-5 minutes in length
* On a beach or not
* With a dog or not
* Spreading aloha – or positive energy
* Podsafe music (if you want to use music)
* No copyrighted material unless you have written permission please

Post your file online (preferably a “.mov”), send us the link, and we’ll wrap the Beach Walks theme around it and feature it in an upcoming episode!

Beach Walk 188 – Everybody’s Right

Guess what? Reality is subjective.

h3. About Today’s Show

Perspective is such a wonderful thing! Everybody’s gets to be right. I was thinking what Brittany mentioned on our Show #185 together, and how people think they know her from watching a few video blogs. I know the feeling of that. But then I also realize how little of my life you all actually get to see! You see, Beach Walks is as much a respite from daily life for me as it is for you. 🙂 In any case, feel free to send over your questions for me and I’ll do my best to answer them.

It’s the same thing with all this discussion online about how easy and cheap it is to create these audio and video programs (John Furrier). Which begs the question as to why investors are pouring money in (Don Dodge) to start up companies that pool the content from people like us? Naturally, I have a few ideas, but that’s stuff for another show!
