She’s So Vain

Tuesday,  January 8, 2019

Ugh, another gray day!

I think I may record a podcast today.  I have a knitting podcast on YouTube called “Joey’s Scarf”.
It takes a bit of time to prepare, record, edit and upload these podcasts.  That’s why I have to mentally prepare myself to do one.
I’ve been doing them for two years now.  In fact January 15 will be my 2nd podaversary  There are 30 episodes.
A change I have noticed since the first one, is the way viewers watch YouTube.   Instead of watching on their six inch smart phone screen or on a tablet with a nine inch screen,  a good number of people are watching on their smart TV’s.  I’ve had one viewer tell me that she watches my videos on her 65 inch TV.
I admit I have watched Joey’s Scarf on our 42 inch TV.  It made me uncomfortable to see myself. I found myself cringing a few times. I mean I hardly look in the mirror much. 😏
To be fair, it’s true that I don’t have a production team.  There is no hair or makeup staff.  The lighting is a 60 watt bulb in the lamp on the table next to the chair I sit in.
So, after each episode, I take a step back and have a little talk with Lyndagrace.  I remind her that there are many memories lovingly etched in her much lived face.
I encourage her to be proud of her ability to keep up with the latest technology in order to produce, edit, and present a pretty decent 30 minute video.
Lastly, I tell her to remember why she decided to do these videos in the first place.  If you want to know, watch the first one. Joey’s Scarf - Episode One
Oh, on your smart phone would be preferable.  Hey, I still have a little streak of vanity.


  1. Wow, can't believe its almost 2 years since you started doing the podcasts. YouTube is a great source for tons of them too. I have to agree with you, watching them on a smaller screen would be the way to go.


    1. I know time goes by quickly. I can entertain myself for hours watch YT videos. :)

  2. I'm in awe of those of you who do those podcasts. I am not brave enough to try.

    1. You should give it a try. You might like it :)

  3. I watch on my tablet. I think you always look pretty Lynda.
    However, I understand. I am not interested in seeing this tired face on a big screen either.

  4. I see you as brave, honest, and a beautiful person inside and out. I think it takes a lot of courage to "talk" to all of us about what's going on in your life. I think I like watching you because you don't have a crazy production team, special lighting, or anything extravagant. I like that you're real and honest and talk to us like friends. :) Keep being you.
