Small Talk With Smockity Frocks – Webisode 1

I got this crazy idea in my  head that I should post a weekly "webisode" of me chit-chatting it up just so you can join me in my special brand of crazy.

In my very first webisode, I spent time talking with Kim from Life in a Shoe, who just happens to be staying with us while they are in town for a wedding. I took questions and suggestions on my Facebook fan page which we used as a springboard for our chat.

Let me know if you are interested in more of these, and if so, what topics would interest you.

  1. I just got a kick out of hearing your voices! Somehow I didn’t imgine either of you to sound like that (though it’s not like my knowledge of different accents is that hot, so I’m not sure how I expected you to sound!)

  2. You are so fun! Loved the video. And I so relate to writing while everyone swarms around me. 7 hours per post that way sounds about right.

  3. I loved the “Mommy I need to talk to you” makes me laugh every time.
    That video was fun to watch!

  4. PLEASE do more of these! So fun to watch!

    you are both are so cute! And the above comment is right–it is hard to imagine someone’s voice. It is nice to get a sense of you both, of what you are really like. It is so fun to make new friends online!

  6. Very fun to watch and great tips for beginning bloggers ; )

  7. That was fun! Let’s do this weekly. Next weekend you have to come to my house, mkay?

  8. I loved this! Thank you for sharing. I have been following both your blogs for a long time and it is nice to really see your personalities come out on the video. BTW, I think I am right in between the 2 of you, so Connie on your drive down to Kim’s, you can stop by for a glass of ice tea ; )

  9. Super cute video! I hope you will do more. =)

  10. I LOVE THIS!!! I just fell in love with Kim’s blog yesterday and am so excited to see you both on video! I am fascinated by what you can do with a large family on little (but always “enough” because God provides for our true needs).

    What do I want to see more of in future webisodes? I want to see what the kids rooms look like and how they are organized, laid out and sleeping arrangements! I read Kim’s blog on how they do it, but I would love to see it on video too for the both of you (of maybe even the 4 moms 35 kids)!

    You both give me and my husband encouragement as we are struggling right now (my hubby is looking for work and I want to stay at home with our little one). Although we only have one baby so far, we would like a few more so I love reading about your large families. Money is REALLY tight and we want to have more kids and we know that GOD will PROVIDE for us when we do. But the rest of the world would think we are crazy, but you guys get it. You value the important stuff (family and God).

    At least once a week I share what I’ve read on your blog with my husband over dinner. Always inspired by you both!

    Can’t wait to “see” you more on webisodes!

    (And Connie, thanks for being so honest about stalking Kim so long before commenting on her blog and meeting her, that’s what I’ve done with your site too!) Do you guys live close to each other?


  11. Hope you do this again–I enjoyed it a lot!!

  12. I so enjoyed your video! Looking forward to more.

  13. Cute! I enjoyed this video!

    Do business approach you guys to advertise and do giveaways or do you go to them?


  14. So this has nothing to do with this post, but there is an ad for the Gap sale in your sidebar…. I just have to ask, How in the world does gap think that models posed like this http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=26692&vid=1&pid=808059&scid=808059002 is going to get any mom to be to buy thier product….. It looks more like someone doing a potty dance or something!!!!! LOL Manybe the pants are too tight to get off in time to use the potty!

    I enjoyed that! Good idea! You two are two of the three blogs that I regularly read, so it was fun to see you together. (the other one is Raising Olives, started with Connie (don’t remembe how), then got stuck on the three of you. It’s kind of weird, this reading blogs thing, I do feel like I’m stalking ya’ll sometimes:)
    I am encouraged by your love for the Lord and your children, thank you.

  16. I love it! Great idea!

  17. That was fun! I read both of your blogs daily and it was fun to hear you! And you’re both so pretty too, prettier “live” even than in photos!

  18. Heather says:

    Oh I loved that! Is there a way we can ask questions without Facebook?

  19. Oh no! I have blogspot! I have on my wishlist to get a domain name. But I just can’t do it yet. Soon, though. Can you recommend where to buy it from?
    I need two- One for my personal blog and one for my local events blog.
    I love the videos! More, please!

  20. Very fun! I’m looking forward to seeing more!

  21. Hi, I love reading, but I don’t watch videos. They take too much time for me. But I always can skip them and wait for text. Thanks!

  22. Great video! I loved that all the kids were lined up watching. lol

  23. I loved the webisode. I have followed you both now for a while and it is such a pleasure to hear and see you! Keep up the great work as wives, mothers, and encouragers of other women! Keeping you both in my prayers!

  24. I’m so excited to see more videos! :)

  25. The video was fantastic! It would be fun to see more videos…maybe in the ‘4 Moms answer your questions’ post…do one video answer in that post. That would be fun to see.

  26. You encouraged me to get back into it! This was fun to see and grab a little of the personality in real life. Thank you!

  27. Loved the sign language part of the video!
    My Mom and I have done that since I was little!

    Made my day!

  28. Lindsey says:

    Hey, loved your video! Looking forward to seeing more of these…maybe with the kids…*hint, hint* LOL

  29. Elizabeth says:

    Loved the video! It is fun to see you in person. :) Next time I would like a shot of the kids too. :)

  30. Lisa Beth W. says:

    I thought that was fun and would be helpful if I actually had a blog. :) You two must have had a great time together, and I wish I could meet some of you lovely lady bloggers! I come to Smockity Frocks and Life in A Shoe often and occasionally comment. God bless!

  31. I LOVED that! I’ve met Kim in real life…someday I hope to meet you too! I thought you lived around Houston….you sound like southeast Texas. :o)

  32. Oh, LOVE the “Mommy I need to talk to you!”. lol I can totally relate to that one with 6 children ages 8 and under (and 1 on the way!)

    Nice to “meet” both of you finally!

  33. This was super fun! Yes, please do more. I’ll go mention the new webisodes on my Homeschool News Network site.

    Loved “meeting” the both of you! And thanks for the tips. Keep them coming.

  34. Loved it! It was great to see and hear both of you! Yes, you must do it again! :)
