Hi everyone, from blogDJ, Dave

A howdy-do, to all of you! 🙂
It's Dave, aka the blog DJ – however, I may be the only DJ who does
NOT post mp3's of songs on my blog. My life story, wrapped up in an
easy-to-chew bite-sized chunk…

I've been a DJ for almost 20 years, both on radio and for private
functions. My passion has always been to be in front of a microphone,
however, I have become more involved in the marketing aspect of it
over the last 6+ years, using my gift (or curse?) of gab as the
vehicle.

I have been using audio online to assist myself (and others) in
marketing their products, and have been using instant flash audio
online for the better part of 18 months. However, in the past few
months, I've been increasingly interested in finding a way to get the
same instantaneous benefits from flash video. That is, a way where
people can convey their messages using video. Hence, my discovery of
videoblogging.

With that in mind, I searched and searched, and stumbled across Jay's
name online, as well as Sean Gilligan's. Tried to contact Sean via
mail (did ya get it, Sean?), but may not have had the correct address.
Contacted Jay, and he said joining the group would be a wonderful
thing, so here I am! 🙂

Indeed, my videos are more of an "infomercial" style, although I can
also include usable content in them as well. I'm not the type to
videotape, say, the cat running around on the piano. However, where I
hope to contribute is to open up the videoblogging myth, and show
people that anyone can do it. Alas, I've been talking into a mike
since I was 12, but have been videoblogging for only 1 month.

** If anyone is interested in seeing an example of my blabby, gabby
videoblogging, check at http://blogdj.blogspot.com –

In this blog, I am currently promoting the Big Seminar, which I also
promote at http://www.bigseminar4.info – I use the blog as a marketing
vehicle AND an experiemental post. It is, indeed, my first experiment
in blogging, so it is, unfortunately, the only example I currently
have.

I discovered the Userplane beta, and have even talked to Michael
there. However, I think he's underestimating the power of the
application, and that's one of the reasons why I was trying to contact
Sean, as he may know another videoblogging tool to which I might be
able to open the potential marketing eyes' of others.

Yep, this was going to be a short intro, but – alas – remember the
(curse) of gab, huh? 🙂

So, I'll leave it to everyone else…..what are you currently using
your blogs for (personal, biz, etc.), what easy tools do you use, and
what future interests for vblogging do either YOU have, or see for the
format?

Let the discussions begin! Thanks, and God Bless, Dave
