Hahaha... yes Ron, I do DREAD webcams, and I am NOT the movie star. The hubby is the movie star (he's better looking) I do the filming and editing.
We started out just by playing with the video function on our digital camera. Then I open the videos in Movie Maker, added a title, etc. and upload it to utube. We've only made about 5 so far, but it's working. You can add "Visit a great hobby website at bla.com" at the beginning.
If your hobby is as addicting as our hobby, people will have no problem checking out your site. Does your hobby site have a forum? Add the url of your forum to the end of your video. "Visit our friendly forum and meet some nice people at bla.com."
You can even talk about your hobby site on your video while you are explaining your hobby.
This is working so well for us, we went out and bought an actual video cam, so we can have more control over what we are videotaping.
Wouldn't it be interesting if we have the same hobby as you? :)
