Episode 34: Not a Clever Title in Sight

The title of this episode should have been “In Which I Reveal Myself to be a Terrible Human Being by Laughing at Children and/or Adults Falling Down”, but, well, I restrained myself.

    I usually laugh, but this episode was hysterical, and it wasn’t even really knitting related! And your wee one is lovable! Thank you so much for cheering me up!

    I would love to know more about how you made the transition from blogger to Pod-Cast. I currently have a blog on WordPress, but I feel that I could get more interest in my page if I went to video. Any suggestions? Thanks for podcast it makes me smile/ Laugh every week.

    Well, really all you need to transition is a camera of some sort…..You’ll want to set up an account with blip.tv and have your videos embedded into your wordpress site as this well help tremendously with cost. I went about my situation a bit wonky, originally using WordPress for storage and feeding directly to ITunes from there. I don’t recomend that, but can’t really say how one sets up an ITunes feed at the same time as blip. I’m sure the friendly folks there have some suggestions though! Best of luck!

    I am not even halfway through this episode, and you haven’t even spoken of yarn yet, but it is, as you say, “awesome sauce.” I am finally on vacation for a few days and have time to watch. Thanks for the Awkward Dad On Inflatables hilarity. Starts my vacay off with a bang!

    Still watchin’. Got to the part where you said,”people in your neighborhood” and it triggered THIS memory from the 70’s when I was a babysitter:

    OMG. This happens so often now that I’m in my 50s. And anyone younger than 40 rolls their eyes. So do it now, Amy Beth and I’ll hear them rolling.

    Ok, I’m so NOTrolling my eyes, because that’s exactly the song that was playing in my head….Hooray for you and YouTube for helping me remember!
