You Tubing - expanding my multimedia horizons

In an effort to garner a few more eyes for myself, the Statesboro Herald, and for the community we cover, I recently opened a YouTube channel.

I opened up this channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/SBryantHerald) as an additional repository for my multi-media projects, primarily audio slideshows and some videos. The original slideshows are Adobe Flash-based, so they can't be viewed on iPhones and iPads. Of course, YouTube has non-Flash options for viewing, so hopefully everyone can check out the presentations, now.

My most recent show is up, and I am currently in the process of uploading some past projects, so check in and browse. I'll add new projects as I complete them, too.

I've gotten a few views. Hardly anything that might even remotely be considered "viral." Interestingly, the most popular piece, by far, has been a video I shot about lifeguards at Splash in the 'Boro last summer. In fact, LifeguardHub, a web site being developed to help lifeguards all around the world connect asked if they could post it on their Facebook Fan Page and their Twitter feed.

Of course, you can always bookmark the Herald's Audio Slideshows page and view the original Flash-based presentations for the best image quality.

Also, please feel free to leave comments. And I am always looking for story ideas for multimedia projects. Any suggestions are welcome.
