Without further ado (and in the hopeful absence of additional technical difficulties), here is the first video for Beyond the Written Page!
You may notice the presence of “ums” and “buts” and pauses and all sorts of imperfections in this video (and future ones).
When I decided to start this project, I knew that plenty of it would be NQP, or Not Quite Perfect. I’m okay with that. And I hope you are too. Because if I took myself or the project too seriously, I would never start it–nor would I ever get any writing done.
I made an error in the video that I DO want you to watch out for–I “quoted” an idiom incorrectly. The first person who catches my error and posts it (and the correct saying) in the comments below this blog post will win a free e-book from me!
In the video, I mentioned links to my website and to Facebook. I learned AFTER I recorded the video that I couldn’t embed links in the description (as far as I know). My bad. However, if you’re reading this blog post, you know how to get to my website 🙂
And if you aren’t a Facebook fan of mine yet, shame on you! If you follow this link to my Facebook Fan Page, you can fix that oversight RIGHT NOW.
I can’t wait to see who catches my idiomatic mistake and wins a free e-book!

Looks Great! You can put a bunch of links in the description of your video. We do it all the time. Just make sure you have the full address with the “http://” part. Also, once you verify your website, you may add annotations within the video that links out to your website. It will be your website only but that is what you want anyway. You may link out to any other youtube videos or playlists through annotations, too.
You have a great presence on camera. The audience won’t grow overnight but be patient and they will find you. 🙂
Thank you, Cool Mom! I’ll be sure to add the “http://” part, and work on technical difficulties this non-techy author had when trying to verify the website. Thank you for the encouragement, as well.
