A to Z Video Challenge

When I signed up for the A to Z Challenge, I noticed they were also having an A to Z video challenge to help spread the word about the blogging challenge taking place in April.  The video entries are due tonight, and since I wait until the last minute for everything, I finished mine this evening.  

Regular blog visitors know I’m crazy about my dog, which is a trait I share with the rest of my family; so when I was trying to think of ideas for the A to Z challenges, I knew they had to be dog related.  For the video challenge, I gathered clips from my brother, sister, and parents of their adorable dogs in action.  Some of the footage is not great quality, but I think y’all will agree that the canine cuteness more than makes up for it. 

I now proudly present… ABCDogs

I’d like to thank my sister Joanna for creating the doggie version of the ABC song for me.  I’d also like to thank my brother Brian for helping me with the editing.  I sat with him while we edited our two short films, but he always drove Final Cut while I watched, so this was my big chance to try out what I'd learned.  It was fun!  And I was unreasonably proud of what I was able to do on my own.  I only had to get his help with a few of the things.  Thanks again, siblings!
I hope you enjoyed my canine commercial for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.  If you haven’t sign up for it yet, think about giving it a try.  This will be my first year, and I’m really looking forward to it. 
Voting for the video challenge is now open, so if you thought my dogs were cute, you can vote for us here.
Are you entering the A to Z Blogging Challenge?  If you participated in the past, any tips for us newbies?  Aren’t the Rish family dogs adorable?

Awesome job with this, Jocelyn. And adorable. I love dogs.

Have a great week.

Thanks, Medeia!  I love dogs too - the only time I've ever lived without one was my four years at college, and that was tough... or should I say RUFF.

So cute! Well done :-)

Thanks, Rachel!  I loved yours too - that stop motion stuff was impressive!

That was awesome! The dogs just might win it for you.

Thanks, Alex!  That's so nice of you to say.  I'm just happy I had the excuse to show off my babies! :-)

I just came across your blog today via a RT on twitter. Your entries are very creative and playful and I've added you to my list of blogs to follow. I wish I had known about the A-Z challenge early as I am already working on April blog entries for NaBloPoMo. Maybe next year, eh? I also post writing exercises from time to time on my blog as well, so stop by some day.

Welcome, Jeri, and thank you for the kind words!  Good luck with NaBloPoMo!  At least we get Sundays off with the A to Z challenge.  :-)

Great video. Cute dogs will always get votes. This will be my first A to Z challenge, so I did not try the video challenge. I am too busy trying to at least get a head start on the challenge posts.

I am glad to meet you. Thanks for your kind comments on my 2nd platform building challenge.

Thanks, Sabrina, I hope you're right about cute dogs getting votes. :-)   And I really should be getting started on my A to Z posts, but I'm just not feeling inspired. :-(
