Image is everything….or so I’ve heard.
My image is not all that reflective of who I am in reality.
I am not the carefully crafted picture of Nicole that most of you have grown accustomed to viewing….and that is not a bad thing.
I keep much of myself to those closest to me…it keeps me safer and it makes my life almost drama free.
Those closest to me have seen and met the vulnerable Nicole, the angry Nicole, the bitter Nicole and all of the other variations of who I am at any given point in time. I think they like me as I am….that or they want me to write them into my will.
For the ‘viewing public’, it is a matter of sharing enough to get you invested, and keeping enough out of the spotlight to live life well.
I always joke that this life will have a drama, a comedy, and a reality show spin off due to all the variations….and there are things in the works that could make that more than true. Scary thought.
I’ve been bouncing around the idea of a video blog to supplement the writings here for some time….I haven’t yet decided but I am leaning towards making the plunge.
It was the visitation week with the laptop when the MAC decided it wanted to have bereavement time after the loss of Steve Jobs.
I hated having to work off a Windows based system…I recalled that Internet Explorer was the devil, and since it was not my machine I could not switch out to FireFox. I hated the look and the feel of the non Apple product (Steve made me his proper bitch before he passed….genius bastard)
What I loved? The camera.
It seems like such a little thing, and it kind of is…but then again it kind of is not.
I’d forgotten the luxury of having a mobile camera and microphone with you.
I’d forgotten how much more creative you can be when you are not trying to prop up the Blackberry or the Digital.
I did a few practice shots, and set some things up…the video blog is ready to go if I pull the trigger.
There are things to consider though.
Although so many of my local peeps know who I am…this is a world wide entity now. Readers from 6 of the 7 continents stop past to read what I have to say. Sure some get here by accident, but they get here.
Do I really want Yuri in Moscow to watch me on video? I dunno yet….I am still debating on it.
Considering there is going to be a members only portion of the new Vizionz….do I want to save the video for those who are going to pay or do I want to dilute the brand?
There is much for me to consider. This is not just a hobby for me…this will eventually be what puts food on the table of the house that this will buy…I don’t have much room for mistakes.
All I can ask is that you stay tuned constant reader….you may shortly be a frequent viewer.
