What makes you want to watch something for more than 15 seconds? Certainly we’ve all become entranced in videos like these for reasons even I can’t explain:
One of the new things I’m doing this year is video blogs for my friends start-up company 30God.com. The idea is that many good-intending people who want to spend time with Jesus, growing their faith have a hard time picking up ye olde devotional.
Hence- 30 second video devotionals to help people think about God throughout the day. Easy, accessible to people while they’re taking a quick break and hopefully, a starting point to spending more time with Jesus or discovering what a relationship with him could be like.
Since the company just launched this month, I’ve had a few video blogs- my favorite is coming up next week (stay tuned! it involves a sleeping mask!)
I know there is tons of great stuff that people can watch online, and even though 30.God videos are only 30 seconds long, that’s 30 seconds you could be watching something else. (seriously did you watch the video above? How can I compete with kittens!)
What I’d love from you bloggy-friends is your feedback on the 30.God site- particularly what you like/dislike about the video blogs I’ve posted so far or what you’ve liked about posts from some of the other bloggers. My biggest challenge has been how to be myself, record something though-provoking in 30 seconds, and make it look cool at the same time. For those of you who know me outside of blog-ville, you know that I talk about faith in a pretty normal way and don’t take myself too seriously. I’ve felt a little forced on the videos & am trying to figure out how to seem more natural and have fun.
So, here’s the link: 30God.com check out the site, go to my profile listed under “the team” with videos I’ve posted so far & post your comments back on this blog. Thanks for your feedback! Now where can I find a giant book about kittens & combine it with thoughts on Jesus? They do both have silky hair. At least in this picture.
