Okay, wow that was a feat, my first v log ever. Below I have my Facebook link, and I did join the one group and became a fan of the other. I tweeted it twice, once I did my own, then I realized there was a tweet that was already written for this. I have my blog link below where I blogged about this, I have uploaded the clip, plus put a link on facebook and myspace, because I have to be excessive, it seems. :-)
