I'm giving a presentation at work tomorrow. It is an exercise on public speaking, which I'm terrible at by the way. One on one or small groups don't intimidate me, but somehow putting me behind a podium with bright lights and a 15 pound adding camera makes me feel like I'm in an interrogation room. Suddenly I'm an idiot on stage. The other day, I watched myself on camera (another exercise in public speaking) and it was utterly terrible. Definitely cringe-worthy. I was smiling so wide that you could see my molars. And my bangs kept falling in my eyes. BIG sigh!
Well, tomorrow I get to give a five minute presentation on a topic of my choice. They asked us to choose something we were passionate about, so that our natural personalities and enthusiasm would shine through. Of course, we're suppose to be "experts" on the topic. At first, I was going to present on my favorite kitchen tool, my tamis, but then I thought jamming might be a more interesting topic for my audience. Then I thought I should talk about fund raising. The more and more I thought about it, the more and more I toggled between the ideas. Last night, I had my presentation epiphany... why don't I give a presentation on food blogging? I love blogging and I LOVE food. It would be perfect, though I would still have to tackle the presenting part of it. What do you guys think? I'm still in the brainstorming phase of it all so I'd love to hear what you guys think. What is your favorite part of blogging? Why do you blog? What would you present on?
Sorry for the non-food post and for listening to me rant. Here's a pic to tide you over until our next meal together:
