Does My Voice Really Sound Like That??

You'd never believe I was so nervous I thought I'd be sick--I never thought it would come off looking so calm!

Janice and Susan were wonderful, and thanks to them I now know what I want for Christmas: my very own Make-up Artist (and as my sister nicely pointed out--apparently I do actually need an artist, a project like that requires the professionals).

You look great! I just love putting a picture of someone with their blog. Next year I am soooo going to BlogHer! I would love to meet you in person!

Munchkins and Music said...

I was so glad I saw this interview because I got some great ideas for blogging. I love your site--as always!

carrie said...

wow! so professional!

cool stuff to see everyone for real.

Scribbit said...

It's funny because we were all running around--I was nervous, Janice and Susan were rather frantic about the schedule and the crew was trying to cool the room down from the hot lights and my roomate was just wondering what was all going on. Turned out so slick and smooth!

Leslie said...

You look and sound fabulous! I am, as ever, in awe of the fact that you've posted every day for so long. And quality posts! I started blogging in 2006 with the same goal and I couldn't do it. Congratulations to you!

Maddy said...

Yeah! What a star you are. I completely relate to 'nerves' but you certainly seemed as cool as a cucumber to me. [must be all the ice round your way]
Cheers

Scribbit said...

Oh and I kept rubbing my feet together nervously or twitching so that my necklace would hit my mic and they had to do a couple retakes because of it. Yes, I'm a pro at this stuff.

I thought it turned out great. It is nice to put voices and faces to the sites I visit everyday. Great job!

I thought you were just lovely on camera and in person. It was such a pleasure to meet you and I do hope that next time we get more time to actually talk!

You look calm, professional, and lovely! Nice job!

allysha said...

You have a lovely voice. That was fun to watch. You're amazing!

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

You look great! I'm one of the ones who show up looking for stories about living in Alaska, by the way...

Cocoa said...

I always love hearing a voice to go with the face. Now every time I read a post it will be with your voice running through my head. They had a make-up artist to help? So glad you mentioned that. I was thinking how unfair it was that you all looked so beautiful while I sit here looking like well.....

Lisa Milton said...

September 2006? You are a dynamo.

(And you look and sound lovely too, making you a triple threat.)

Great interview.

ames said...

You look fabulous dahling! And somehow just like I had pictured you :) Very cool!

Heather said...

That was SO GREAT! My only complaint is that it was too short. I think you sound fine- just like I thought you would. I am really enjoying these videos at 5minutesformom and I'm so glad they interviewed you.

Jill - GlossyVeneer said...

The interview is great! You definitely look calm, beautiful and wonderful. Of course, that really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone... you are all of those things and more!

Where would you store your professional make-up artist? Under the bathroom sink? ;-)

Org Junkie said...

You did awesome, I would never have thought you were nervous. You looked like a professional. I too love "meeting" the person behind the blog.

Loralee Choate said...

You did a fabulous job. In my opinion the makeup artist only complimented what was there and you pretty much look like that in person when you do your own makeup. She's just good at getting it to look good under those lights!

You were articulate, informed and I think the interview turned out really well.

P.S. Yup. Your voice sounds like that and it's a really nice one at that.

Scribbit said...

You're the nicest ever Loralee--you made BlogHer so fun!

SabineM said...

WOW! I have to say, You impressed me before, but NOW YOU ARE my hero!
Amazing!
I AM SOOO going to BLogHer too! ;)

Michelle said...

Hi Michelle,you look and sound great ,How nice to hear your voice.Have a great day.

Lis Garrett said...

That was GREAT!! You certainly did NOT appear to be nervous. Lovely, all the way around. :-)

And how awesome what that production?! So professional!

Jen at Semantically driven said...

Michelle, you came across as very articulate and your voice sounds just fine. It's always weird hearing how we sound on tape! Well done. Now, to be organised to get posts ready 1-2 weeks in advance!

miriama said...

You did great!

mannequin said...

You look so calm, approachable and collected. It's no wonder you are so loved in the bloggy universe.
Thanks for letting us know about the makeup. Now I don't feel so plain and unadorned.

Tammy said...

That was fun to watch, and attach a voice to a face! :-)

Little Window Shoppe said...

Michelle, You were awesome! I loved this video. I am so impressed with your organization and am feeling motivated by what you said. Way to go.

Lori said...

Congrats! Great job! You look relaxed.

Lori - Queen of Dirty Laundry said...

Oh my goodness! How fun to see you in the (video) flesh.

Great interview! Very professional and relaxed.

Grace @ Sandier Pastures said...

I don't see any nervousness at all! I wish I was near BlogHer, I would have loved to go and see you in person! :-)

And, you look great as is. No additional makeup necessary!

Andrea said...

You look gorgeous Michelle! You sounded confident (you have to be to post this interview). Thanks for sharing!

Michelle A. said...

It was so great to hear your voice - you did a fantastic job! It must be all those talks you must give at church up their in alaska Michelle!

nicole said...

You did great! No way did you look nervous and it would probably take an artist 1.4 minutes to get you ready. ;)

Rikonline said...

Great post nice job you look great, great blogging tips. Will comeback for more keep on with the good work

Crystal said...

I love your twitter and it was so cool to see you and hear you in the video! I just loved it!!

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Your interview has been my favorite one so far. You looked and sounded terrific! I couldn't tell you were nervous at all. :)

Rachel C. said...

Is BlogHer for anybody? If so, how does one register for it?

A lot of people recognize my name. I'm assuming you meant my family name? Most of the time, I'm not related to the Cheneys they know. But my husband's family is from Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming, the Jackson Hole area.

angie said...

Love your hair. Your voice sounds how I imagined it would! :)

AlaneM said...

Great job, I've been looking forward to seeing this interview & here it is, the day I'm catching up on my reading :)
Great posts the past few days...I'm sad I missed the weekend giveaway, those lil guys are cute! Oh, and thanks to you I now have the bottle/labotomy song going through my head - long live Dr Demento!!

Mrs. Organic said...

Great interview. You look fabulous (love your teeth, in a non-creepy way). Your voice is lovely to listen to. Thanks for all those daily posts - wow!

Jacki said...

Very cool! But I must say, you did look a teensy bit nervous at the beginning! I think I would have passed out!

I hate hearing myself on tape, I think I sound totally ridiculous.

Tara said...

I really liked this interview!

Rani said...

Great job, Michelle. You sure looked and sounded like a pro to me. Keep up the daily blogging. I can always find something interesting in your posts.

Pencil Writer said...

Don't know what your sister's talking about. You look GREAT to me! With the minimal makeup you're wearing in the video, just realize you're a natural beauty! What more do you need?

Doll Clothes Gal said...

Just watched the video - you were great!! Great answers and some good insights - thanks.

Susan from Food Blogga said...

I really enjoyed the interview, Michelle. I liked your point about different types of posts to appeal to different readers. And I just have to say, your make-up looked fab! :)

Lisa said...

Wow! You look great! You sound great! How fun!

Christie O. said...

awesome!! wow, you look great! and yes, so composed!!

funny, you look and speak just like i thought you would! that's a testament to your writing, so honest that it gives everyone such a good picture of you who you really are behind the computer!!

great interview!!

Annie said...

You were cool as a cucumber. So many great tips in so little time, too!

Organizing Mommy said...

You are an inspiration for those of us just beginning. Thanks.

page2 said...

You were so cool, Michelle! Great interview. I hope you will keep up the blog much longer than three years. When my husband works late I love to check out your posts.

iamsasyk said...

It's fun to see AND hear the voice behind the stories! Thanks for all your efforts.

Chocolate Inspector said...

What a fun video to watch, now I can picture you talking when your writing. I had no idea blogging could be such an involved and committed adventure. Your writing style is so fun, I'm always interested in the first sentence. Thanks for what you contribute about Alaska, I miss it!

Enzie Shahmiri said...

Michelle - you are famous !!!!!

You look great and sound just fine. I would have babbled incoherently! LOL

It is wonderful to actually see you animated rather than via photos and listen to how you keep up with posting and juggling the schedule of your lovely family.

I will post Lillian's finished painting in a couple of days and hope that you like it.

All the best,

Enzie

Christine@AreweThereYetmom said...

You looked and sounded lovely Michelle. It was nice to be able to put a voice and a face with your blog.

I always enjoy your blog. Thank you for the tip on posting in advance. I'll be sure and keep that in mind for next Summer.

Great interview, Michelle.

Sonja said...

Michelle~ you are so beautiful and poised...I seriously doubt that you need an artist. :)

Now I feel like I know you even better! How fun. Your blog is truly a marvel. I love it. You know, I really like all the different "focuses" and have used your tips and recipes and smiled at your wit and humor.
Thanks for being so dedicated!

Patricia Gray said...

Thank-you for making the Blogging world a better place and for sharing of yourself so freely. Keep up the excellent and high quality professional content.
Kindest Regards
