|A snapshot from our Google Hangout interview.|
It was just a little over a year ago that I discovered Katie's podcasts through my participation in the 12x12 writing challenge. Shortly after, I sent her a jingle for her show, which she now uses as her opening theme song. Clearly, I'm a huge fan, so this interview was an absolute thrill.
Google Hangout was less than stellar. At the last minute, I grabbed my laptop and microphone, ran into my bedroom, and plugged directly into the cable modem. Problem solved. Of course, I then had to do the entire interview sitting on the edge of my bed, but hey, who's complaining? It worked!
We had a great discussion about songwriting, making videos, and lots more. I even got to answer Katie's famous Last Question, which is: "If you could go to the yard sale of any character in the history of children's literature, whose would you go to, and what would you buy?" To find out my answer, you'll have to listen to the episode, which you can find on Katie's website HERE. (http://katiedavis.com/135/) or on iTunes HERE.

By the end of Katie Davis's Video Idiot Boot Camp, all campers should have the knowhow to create a welcome video for their websites. As I was formulating the plans for my welcome video, I jumped ahead and started my kidlit vidcast series which you can view on my VIDEO page or on my YouTube channel at youtube.com/timmccannawriter. But now, I'm proud to present my completed welcome video! Along with a special cameo by my son, Nate, it benefits from a heaping helping of 70's and 80's TV sitcom title sequence cheese. Enjoy.
