Putting Words in My Mouth on ZooTube


Yeah. Yeah, I did it. I made a YouTube channel and I made one video and then another and now...

Yeah.

In any case, I'm enjoying this tiny little project. The channel is called "Mel Bosworth Reads Things" and it's exactly that. Me reading things. Things written by other people, maybe you.

I'm not taking submissions per se, but instead tapping on shoulders. People have responded well to the tapping and I'm glad. Thank you to those who have answered the tapping. If I tap on your shoulder please say yes. You'll be glad too. Maybe.

Like any new online project, it's come storming out of the gates. Let's see if I can keep it up. People agreeing to let me read their stuff helps. And so does new subscribers.

The 20th subscriber to my channel will win a prize. I haven't figured out what it will be yet because I'm not sure I'll get 20 subscribers.

**Amendment: I'm an idiot. Seeing as a person can more or less position themselves to jump into the 20th follower slot, I'll be giving out the prize at random to one of the first 20 followers. Make sense?

Now go be pretty.

I dig your little projects. If I had something worth reading that would only take a minute I would totally tap you. I tap HARD! I guess I'm saying, consider yourself lucky.

Mel Bosworth said...

thanks, t.

...and you watch out too. instead of tapping your shoulder, i'll just flat out stick my finger in your ear.

Teresa Houle said...

Thought you were getting fresh.

I enjoy your reading.

I am terrible at reading stuff aloud.

I tell people that I often know what someone looks like by listening to the sound of their voice--they don't believe me, but it's true. Now I know I know what someone sounds like by reading what they write..

Mel Bosworth said...

Thanks, A--er--Elizabeth.

And I'm sure you're better at reading aloud than you think.

I love the reading series. Read more, record more, have fire involved somehow.
