30 Day Vlog Challenge

Mark and Yukari

Some of you might remember, but I have tried blogging every day for 30 days. I failed miserably. Although I enjoy writing, blogging every day was really hard for me, not because of lack of material or motivation, but for pure lack of time. When I have my kids at home, I just don’t have that kind of time. Sadly, I fell of that wagon and had to raise a white flag.

I have also tried working out every day. Now, in this context “working out” is more like “Do some sort of physical activity” and this, I managed to do it more than 30 days. I lost count, but I did around 40 consecutive days. Then I left for Japan and there was no time for anything.

Right when I came back from Japan, my life has been a little hectic, trying to catch up on all the things I’ve put on hold while I was away. Now that things has settled a bit, I thought I should get back into a positive routine. Then I happened to read my friend Masatake Hori’s post(in Japanese) on “Simple habits to make positive change”. He has started podcasting every day for 30 days using Soundcloud. Podcasting has been on mind this year as well, but video comes much more naturally to me. So, I decided to vlog for 30 days. I asked my husband Mark to help, and before I knew it, we are doing a vlog together! In order to do it every day for 30 days, I needed the bar to be quite low.  It’s more of a video dairy than a show. We are using his iPhone 5. No other special equipment. (yet).

Here are the first three episodes.
