Week 4!  I’m actually starting to like doing these videos.  At first I was nervous because I had never done anything like this before and if you know me I am not an in-front-of-the-camera kind of gal.  But I am starting to get into a groove and enjoying the whole process of making these videos for you guys.

How about you?  Do you like the videos?  Are there any topics that you would like me to cover?  Let me know in the comments so that I can make this blog work for you!
