    I have started a video blog on youtube I call the Worthless video blog.  I appreciate your advice, but it sure is hard to find video bloggers who are active.  It looks like the last video you posted was a year ago.  If you are still around I would love to learn more from you.

    I totally agree with the last part, some people are just naturally cruel too people they hardly know. The best thing is just to ignore them and their ignorance.

    MJ you really do have a good way in front of a camera. Just be yourself and the rest will all flow naturally. Some nice tips there as well.
