Reposted from here.

Challenge #1, The Video Challenge
To join me in the video challenge – read and join Pat Flynn’s challenge. Then let me know you have joined and I will also feature your video and your site here. doubling the links to your YouTube videos.
I know there were a lot of you that said that doing video was one thing you wanted to accomplish this year. This is your chance to get that done.

The video challenge ends on April 30th at midnight MST. Everyone that entered will be included on a post by May 15th.

Benefits – Your video online. Exposure and back links to your video and YouTube Channel.

If you need an extra boost check out the video series over at Keith Davis’s blog, eSpeaking. The series started this week with the outstanding post by Paul Wolfe, “Surfing The Video Wave.”
Also to help you with this challenge, I have written a guide for doing Screencast video. This is the method I have been using to record my video for Pat’s challenge.
