When I created a fun Keynote presentation to help promote fundraising for our wonderful high school baseball team in McLean, Virginia, I couldn’t help myself. What motivated me was the fact that our son is a catcher on the Varsity team.
I used my studio mic to do the voice over, added a classic ballgame theme song, then played it as my Screenflow was recording the computer screen. To cap it off, I sent it over to YouTube and posted it on my “voicebylinda” channel. Ah, the things we do for our children.
Last week, an interesting opportunity presented itself over the web by USA Today to promote local high school sports. They selected four sets of rival games and polled their website fans. What did the winner get? The chance to be televised live! Wow! Naturally, I sent the link out to my FB and Twitter followers. I was delighted by the responses and supporting votes. Oh, right, now I’m blogging about it on WordPress!
Although it was touch and go for a while during the voting, we won the poll! After playing for 12 innings, we also won the game, 2-1!
The irony? Our son didn’t play because of a hurting back.
