Total Voyeur...

I can't help it. I'm a total voyeur. Not that kind of voyeur, a boring voyeur. I love to peek in on people's everyday lives. Love. it. I still go back and visit Shazia's video about celebrating Eid with her family. I can't get enough of this stuff! So. I am officially starting a new bloggy thingy to feed my voyeuristic tendencies. And you are going to help! please please please please.

Here's how this is going to work. I'm calling it "Peek In Mondays" and every Monday I will post a short video clip peeking in to our everyday life. Nothing orchestrated, nothing set up, all completely natural. And in return, you will do the same and post a link to your clip in the comments section. If you don't have a blog (get one!) you can just post a link to You Tube or wherever else you want to upload it.

I mean anything. Making breakfast, bedtime rituals, meeting friends for coffee, sitting in class, going to the dry cleaners, hubby reading to the kids, laying around the park, walking to school, baking bread. whatever! I want to see it! and I know I am not alone. I'm giving you a week to get your first clip. We'll start next Monday. Join me so I don't look like a complete loser and curl up in a ball and regress back to 6th grade.
Edited to add that Leslie has a sweet little video of her two up on her blog.

It's a great idea! I would love it, but I can't post clips. :( Suck... but I will love peaking in on others.

So, what are the rules? I must have rules or else I wont know what to do.

Cakes said...

Rules?

1.) Make a short video clip of your everyday life. Anything. (Well, not anything anything.)

2.) Post it on your blog on Mondays and let us know you participated by leaving a link in my comments.

that's all I got. Do I need more rules?

hey cakes... how does pumpkin cheesecake taste? are you on facebook or are you boycotting?

Cakes said...

Shaz~The pumpkin cheesecake was awesome! No, I don't have a Facebook page but no, I'm not boycotting. I just can't juggle all those different pages and different places. As it is, I have a hard time keeping up with everything.

sounds like TONS of fun, and would LOVE it, but i am not sure i am blogger material. I don't have anything witty to say, and i work full time. But i can't wait to SEE all you guys! I am such a voyeur!

Asha said...

Alright.

I'm in.

Actually, it sounds like fun and I've been meaning to add some clips of Rohmoh in action. Now, I have even more incentive!

Sounds like a fun idea, but I don't have anything to record with (no video camera or digital camera, only a 35mm).
