AmeriNZ Blog 2014 in pictures

I was curious what a year of blogging would look like as images alone. So, I made this slide show with most of the images I posted to AmeriNZ Blog in 2014, in rough chronological order. It’s nothing fancy—I used a standard iMovie template—but I think it’s interesting to see what I talked about.

Obviously 2014 was a year of politics, furbabies and life in New Zealand, shown through photos of politicians, public events, created graphics, Internet memes, and the odd selfie. However, there aren’t all that many photos of me, so I don’t know if this qualifies as “self indulgent” or not. I’m thinking at 10:13 it very well may.

On the other hand, if an image is worth a thousand words, then there quite were a few words published, too, especially since not all posts had images.

This was just a bit of fun while I’m on holiday, but it also helped refresh my memory on how to edit actual videos—you know, just in case…

AmeriNZ Video 01 – My New Zealand

This is my first video, though technically it’s just a kind of slide show. But I wanted to share some of the special places I’ve been in New Zealand, and this seemed like a good way to start doing videos. In future videos I’ll show you more of my New Zealand.
