I am so grateful for everyone who has been helping me out by liking, commenting on, and sharing my 1st video; since I made it to the Top 40 for Kelly Ripa’s Co-Host for a Day Contest, last Friday. After all, my chances of winning are definitely based on how the free market (that’s you) reacts to my video on Kelly’s website.
On October 5th, we’ll all find out if I made it to the next cut; to the Top 20. So in addition to how well my 1st video does based on the public’s views, comments, likes, and shares, my success in the contest will be based on my newest assignment:
Make a video to showcase my ability to demonstrate how to do something in 60 seconds or less, which also features my personality.
I would have chosen to feature my adorable 5 month-old daughter in the video, using the angle on me being a daddy blogger.
However, no one under the age of 18 was permitted in the video.
So I decided the next best choice was for me to feature my “Manly Vegan Protein Smoothie” which I invented 3 and a half years ago, and have been drinking every day since then.
I chose this for a couple of reasons…
It gave me a reason to feature my Rubik’s Cube coffee mug. Who wouldn’t think that’s cool?
Plus, there aren’t a lot of vegan males out there. Being such a rare demographic makes me stand out from the crowd.
But ultimately, it’s not about a smoothie; it’s about me selling my personality in 60 seconds; to prove that I can be both classy and quirky.
So on October 5th, we’ll see if I’m worthy of the Top 20. I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
