Chronicles of a Tween Mom! Mini-Book Trailer Release

Whew! From Animoto to YouTube, this mini-trailer project produced by Toy Parker has been quite a journey! First, there was the general anxiety of trying to create a video by myself for the first time in more than a decade. I usually have one of my business partners or friends in the business do editing for me. I’m such the perfectionist. I believe I am truly the slowest editor on the planet. Next, there was the task of trying to figure out what song would work best with the title and the pictures I selected. For a perfectionist, surely you must know that it was the grace of God that I had actually narrowed it down to two songs!

Finally, after choosing one song, I saved it in Animoto, but wasn’t satisfied because I couldn’t put the embedded link on my website. Or I could, but it only showed the link. I really wanted to see the video on my website. Next step: I had to figure out how to upload the video to my YouTube page so I could use the YouTube embedded link that I hoped to use in the first place. Alas! Where there is a will, there’s a way. Word to the wise, make sure you have made all of your changes before pressing the “Produce” button–even if it’s just the title of the video. (I learned that the hard way. Yes, I watched the tutorial, but that wasn’t covered probably because no one usually pays attention to the details to the point they’d care to edit little things like titles?)

Alas, after feeling my way through that entire adventure–or series of misadventures–depending on which way you want to look at it — I was beyond elated to upload my video to my website with the YouTube embedded link. Victory is mine and I pray you enjoy my heartfelt masterpiece! This is just another Chronicles of a Tween Mom moment. As you can imagine, Nia has asked several times by now, “Is the mini-book trailer finished yet? You said you were going to do it all yourself.” Finally, I can now say, “Yes!” Pure Comedy! #Daily
