Morning Vlog Collaboration

We all crave connections with others. It is a basic human need.

Connection with the people we live with, friends and within our community.

Corona Virus makes that much more difficult.Travel is restricted or non existant and there is an ongoing threat to our health. Our mental and physical health takes a battering.

Many of us turn to online classes, meetings and get-togethers to maintain the human to human connections and interactions with others.

To this end, Vero from lesfrenchchronicles and other bloggers wanted, in a small way, to counteract isolation with a video collaboration from bloggers all over the world, including myself. The result was a compilation of video excerpts from each blogger’s life, as seen through a window, door, or hatch!

It was fun, fresh and well, take a look and see for yourself.

Why make a Collaborative Video?

Through sharing small snippets of life in the different regions of the world, a collaborative video may create visual links, may improve connections, bridge misunderstandings and assist in breaking barriers between people from different regions. We all live in the one world, right?

How to Participate in a Collaborative Video

You will need to prepare a 20 second Instagram like video in landscape mode, based on your interpretation of the theme of “morning.”

The video needs to reach my inbox before Tuesday 2nd February and does not need to show you in it. [ie. you can be behind the camera].

Video Theme of Morning

The video should portray your idea of ‘morning.”

‘Morning’ might mean something vastly different, when compared to my morning of an early sunrise breaking over the choppy waves on the Pacific Ocean; it might mean a quiet cuppa whilst reading the news. Or, snuggling with your pet, driving/walking to work, (even if you wfh), or preparing breakfast or a family ritual?

  1. I loved this! Not sure how I would do it but I do love seeing it. I had to look really close to see the writing telling me where it was from. Maybe by tomorrow, I’ll be able to see it without holding the computer to my nose. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for doing this!

  2. Huh ? I am ? I WOULD be, but for my total lack of videoing skills – it’s a lovely idea.
    Besides, me old china; my idea of morning is being woken up in the dark by a small paw prodding me from ground level. Anywhere from 0450 to 0520: he has a pretty exact half-hour for getting me out of bed. Then I have to go out onto the balcony with him; and I’m lucky if I can get away with pulling my morning shot beforehand. It would make a delightful video, but it’d have to be shot by someone else ! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. You’re right! Human connection is very important. Without it, we really can lose ourselves ๐Ÿ˜‚. *speaking from experience. It’s a good thing we can still chat to each other through our phones. I for one have moved from sending messages to my friends to recording myself talk on snapchat for e.g and now we’re all doing that. The idea of the collaborative video is really cool! One gets to see a number of places from.around the world. Great article๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Thanks so much, Dawid. I do agree it is important to hear voices and your recordings are a great way to do that. But it fades quickly on snapchat, does’t it? You can’t go back and view it months later. Is that right?


      1. They do fade away after 24Hrs should you upload them onto your general story where everyone sees them. But recording yourself and sending them almost like you would when you’d send on a snap doesn’t cause them to disappear unless if they view them๐Ÿ˜…. I reckon you could re-watch some of them a second time but shortly after you viewed them the first time.i’m not sure for how long they stay. Generally once you watch one once you can’t watch them again. But i really like the method however, it is almost like texting but it feels more.. like your talking to them in real time ๐Ÿ˜‚. You hear their voice, see their facial expressions and it gives out something a text with emojis can’t you know

    1. Yes please, send in the videos for the morning theme to me. I am waiting on a couple more, then shall put together what I have. Thanks Vero.
      Or if some prefer – the February theme on Vero’s blog may work better?


  4. Really relateble I just started my own travel blog and then covid hit and I could not travel anymore from my country. No travel planning for me at all … ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Everyone is important. What do you have to say?
