Choosing A Blog Title (Writer's Workshop)



I think I'm way too serious in this video. Here are some things you can look for to make viewing it a bit more interesting:
1) Watch for our dog Abby getting off the couch.
2) What when Manny (our tabby) enters.
3) Watch for Spunky Doodle (our Tuxedo cat) on the floor.
4) Notice when Manny jumps up on the coffee table.
5) Count how many stuffed animals you can find.

After we finished making this, Gerard asked, "Do you think people really are interested in this?" Well, I don't know, but I enjoyed seeing other ones so I figure some people would enjoy seeing ours too. I am not real happy with how this turned out. I thought about doing it over with the following changes but didn't want to ask Gerard to do it over. You can see how enthusiastic he was about doing it the first time.

If we did do it over, here are the changes I would make:
1--Let Gerard say something.
2--Straighten up the coffee table and get Slider all the way in the picture (sitting at the end of the coffee table).
3--Turn Pooh Bear to face the camera (on the mantle).
4--Don't say "so" that much.

Thanks to all who voted for our title--we like it very much! If you liked this video, hit that "videos" tab at top on the end to go right to our YouTube channel for more at "Barking and Meowing With The Zemeks."  We have quite a few.


This vlog is in response to Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop prompt: Tell us the story behind the title of your blog. What is it? What inspired it? What other options did you consider? Are you happy with it?

Great Video! You should have your own TV show.

Choosing a blog title is not as easy as one might think. I think your choice was excellent!

We had no idea what we were doing when my Mommeh helped me set up my blog. I got lucky because I like my blog title even though we didn't put much thought into it at the time!

I enjoyed your video and hearing how you picked your blog title! Did Abby jump down because she wanted to put herself between you and Manny? Is she a little jealous of the cats sometimes?

Great video! Thanks for sharing.

Karen and Gerard said...

Pegbur7: I never though of Manny as being huge. He is my big boy though.

Ron: Thanks for your kind words about my video. I agree, choosing a good blog title is not easy. I like yours though too!

Daisy: I like your title too.

Beaded Tail: Yes, I think Abby is a bit jealous of the cats sometimes. I'm not sure though if it's actually jealousy or if she just likes attention--it might be that.

Pierro and Christine's Pantry: Ha, ha. Thanks! Glad you liked it! I have a whole YouTube channel of videos. Just search for kzemek (It's called Barking and Meowing With The Zemeks).
