VideoBlogging Week 2006 – Day 1 – My drive to work

Videoblogging week 2006 is upon us. Like many others, I foolishly agreed to make and post a video every day for seven days. It’s certainly challenging, but I hope it will be fun too.

Anyway. Here is my first post of the week: Three weeks ago I quit my old job teaching at Suffolk College, and started a new contract in software development. While I was working at Suffolk College, I vlogged my daily walk from home to work, albeit in a somewhat vomit-inducing speeded-up format. So it made sense to start my week of videoblogs with a video of my journey to my new place of work. The new employment is about twice as far away as the old one, so (for the moment at least) I am driving to work. At some point in the near future, I plan to try cycling, though that would take a slightly different route alongside the docks rather than round the one-way road system.

Anyone who actually watched my previous journey to work video might recognize the first part of this one, as the first mile or so is the same.

Oh. The subtitle of videoblogging week 2006 is “vlogging dangerously”. What was dangerous about this one? Vlogging while driving – a camera in one hand, the steering wheel in the other, and the gearstick in … um … the third hand … You might notice one or two crunchy gear changes 🙂

  1. This looks very dangerous to me, driving on the wrong side of the road all the time, good for you they ALL do that. 🙂
    (Here we are drving on the right side.)


  2. I’ve done a few videos like this, but I wedged the camera (NSIS DV H-10) against the windscreen and dashboard with ‘blue-tac’. Then I can speed up the video and it still looks really stable
