Me. On Video. EEEEK!

I kinda sorta almost forgot to post the link to my presentation from PodCamp Pittsburgh. Oops.

So . . . here you go. Thirty or so minutes of me talking as if I have a clue as to what this whole blogging thing is all about. Heh.

Couple of things:

* The super-stalkerific website stats software that I couldn't think of by name is Woopra. It's like Statcounter, Sitemeter, and Google Analytics rolled into one and then dipped in pixie dust, magic, and liquid awesome.

* Speaking of stats, I say how many hits I get per month during the presentation. Only, I don't actually look at my stats very often, so I was wrong. Add 5K to what I said. (And there you go, ye who landed at Jayesel's site after googling, "How many hits does burghbaby get." You could have asked me and I would have totally told you. It's not a secret. ;-) )

* Yes, the room really was that crowded. MAJOR love to everybody who endured the sardine-like conditions. Y'all are amazing.

* I don't actually talk that fast in person--I talk faster than that. I have to work major hard to make myself slow down whenever I speak in front of a group, unless Rory and Lorelei Gilmore are in the room.

* If you say I have an accent, I might track you down and stab you. I DO NOT SPEAK LIKE A CHARACTER FROM FARGO. I hope.

  1. You posted this on Thanksgiving, hoping that people don't have the time to watch this, didn't you?

    Also, are those two guys standing with their arms crossed the whole time your body guards? Talk about intimidating!

    Happy Thanksgiving

  5. Just listened to your presentation... I didn't hear any accent. I heard a lot of good information though. And I got to see everything I ever wanted to see regarding the back of Ginny's head. :)

    Thanks for posting it, and have a great rest of Thanksgiving!

  7. I did hear at least one "aboot" and there was another word that stuck out but I don't remember now. I watched it last night. I've slept since then!
    Good tips in there. Hope your Thanksgiving was blessed and your tofurkey was yummy!

  9. Good talk and lots of good info. I only heard two words where your roots stuck out, otherwise, you could almost claim no accent. The vowels always give you North Dakotans away.

  10. The lousy quality of the recording (which mostly means the horrible angle they chose and the fact that you keep moving out of the shot) drive me crazy! How hard would it have been to put the camera on the other side of the room??

  13. Oh my gosh! I love your accent! Oh...I mean... What accent? :-)

    I agree about the bodyguards. Dude. They look scary. Are they there to listen about blogging? Hmmmm.....

    Hey, I'm enjoying this. I'm going to go listen to it more now and stop harassing you!
