Harmony & Synergy

From My Life to Yours ~ Let's Build Some Bridges!

Retraction (sorry!)

FYI – I’ve removed the previous video I made because I want to improve it. Here’s what I think needs work:

– I need to figure out who I am speaking to. The video seemed to be directed those who wonder about why Jewish married women cover their hair, AND those who have been covering their hair for a while. Both messages are important, but need to be addressed separately.

– It needs to be thought out and completed in more than a couple of hours. It is such an important subject and I just have so much more that I want to convey.

– I need to get more comfortable speaking to a camera. I have no idea how to do this. Any pointers? Those that know me well could probably see the tension in my face and that I wasn’t able to connect. Maybe I should stick to writing for now… If you have any suggestions please let me know!

– I have realized that there needs to be a balance between getting information out quickly (because it needs to be heard!) and conveying it effectively. I think I felt too much urgency in getting this one out.

So I am going to leave it up on youtube for anyone that wants to check it out, but please keep in mind that it’s just a fraction of what I want to do. I’m going to take it off the site, etc. until I can give the subject what it deserves.

Shabbat Shalom!
Love, Andrea

    I remember once hearing Rebbetzin Heller say that when she first started giving video classes, she put up a picture of a class of students next to the camera so she would feel like she was speaking to her usual group of girls. I don’t know if that helps, but good luck!

    I imagine that time and practice are the best for this. If you want to commit a lot of time to it, try a 2-minute daily vlog (that you just store on your computer for laughs later) for a month or so and see how you feel after that. I’m sure that that would be huge.

    …ps I love your blog :) if video doesn’t work out for you for some reason, your writing will more than compensate.
