How's Amanda Doing?

April 3, 2007 12:39 AM

I haven’t visited my good friend and long lost younger sister (pretend sister, OK) Amanda Congdon in some time now.

Let’s see how she is doing. I pop over to Amandacongdon.com and am kind of surprised that it’s not a snazzy video hub. I spy the link for starring amandacongdon and click on that. I watch “Journalism Stories.”

The video plays just fine and yada, yada. It’s still not my cup of tea, but that’s OK.

So now let’s see our friend Amanda on Blip. I’m actually really digging the Blip service. The video player is very cool and easy to use. Here’s the weird thing though – the first video that plays is Amanda talking about her deal with ABCnews.com and how she’s going to be the first video blogger for the site. But that deal was announced late last year. I’m not sure why this episode is the first one in the list of Amanda’s videos.
