Naked Lens and video blogging

41UTxy81tALI recently had the pleasure of speaking to Seam Kaminsky who wrote the book “Naked Lens: Video Blogging & Video Journaling to Reclaim the YOU in YouTube” which is all about self discovery and self awareness.

We both had similar ideas on how video journaling is probably the best way to self discovery and learning about oneself is simply a joy that we wanted to share with other people.

What’s the Thought Discovery Panel all about?

We’ve recently added a new feature to the site and we are calling it the Thought Discovery Panel or TDP for short.

The TDP was created so that we can present questions with associated images to help people trigger thoughts and ask some of those difficult questions which perhaps you need to get asked. Continue reading

Why record a video memoir

People around the world are living day to day getting older and their┬ámemories getting weaker. It’s a simple fact of life, and as we get older, we will find it harder to remember stories and events from the past.
