I had an interesting conversation the other night with my aunt, a marketing specialist, about the Power of Youtube. Last year I set up a Youtube channel for b&s, complete with an inaugural video of me peeling & cleaning fresh shrimp. And the quality sucked, I don’t think anybody looked at it, and I never did anything with Youtube again. Clearly, I failed at the whole video angle.
Today I made a slideshow of our year in photos, something nostalgic to send to our family. At first I tried to upload it to flickr because we love flickr, but it was too big. So then I turned to Vimeo, a video sharing site that my father has been preaching about for a while. Right off the bat I think that Vimeo is cleaner looking and feeling than Youtube, a little more professional, if you will. I was so inspired by the end result that I moved the shrimp video and resolved that in 2010 there will be more instructional videos, just not on Youtube.
And here’s our year in photos. Happy end of 2009, everybody! I hope that it’s been a good one for you!
