Vlog Challenge
Facing Your Fears

We have officially completed three months as Pictilio and I couldn’t be happier! Though I’m thankful for how far we’ve come, we wouldn’t be where we’re at today without the three years we spent as Prokopets Studio. As we began preparations for our current website, there was one wedding that stood out in our minds as a perfect reflection of the Pictilio brand. Callie and Brady were married on June 19, 2010. It’s so encouraging to see glimpses of Pictilio in our work even two years ago.

I’ve come to realize that it’s a fine line between being content with where you’re at today while constantly working towards evolving and refining your craft. So we’re trying to stroll through the process instead of sprint. I’d say that’s a good visual for me to hold on to, still moving forward while enjoying all the life around me.

We launched our new website back in January without a Home page. Some people might have recommended against it, but we went for it. We wanted to just “ship” as Seth Godin would say and refine as we go. That page is in the works and will hopefully be up in the coming weeks to help navigate new visitors to the site.

Sometimes refining can be difficult though. Even painful. Last Thursday night, we shot a video for our home page with Meyer Photography. It was an exciting yet extraordinarily humbling experience. Regardless of what transpires, I’m happiest to have faced my fears. Only good things will come from facing your fears. So you will all get to see that video soon as well.

But we didn’t want to stop there. Why not continue the torture, right? The day after shooting that video, we came across Tim King’s 30 Day Vlog Challenge. Vlogging, apparently, is blogging but through a video format. Wanting to incorporate more video into our brand, we have decided to take on the challenge. The videos will be in line with our current blog content only in video form rather than written word. You’ll get to hear my squeaky voice!

If you’d like to see out first video to the challenge, come join the fun on our Facebook page. We hope to bring you some great content over the next 30 days. If you’d like to join the challenge, you have until midnight PST tonight to take the plunge.

Cheers to facing your fears! One video at a time.
