A Tribute to the Vlogbrothers

        This week,we have decided to do something different. After discovering the amazing videos of John and Hank Green, the Vlogbrothers, on Youtube, we thought it would be fun to do something similar on our blog.

 First, who are the Vlogbrothers?
         John Green is an award winning author of books such as Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars. Hank Green is his brother, who started the company EcoGeek and has created many amazing Youtube channels. They started this project to speak to each other without text for one year, and instead they made video letters. Their videos became so popular that they have kept making videos and have started some educational channels and charity work.  They are really awesome!

Second, what are Nerdfighters?
            Nerdfighters are people who like nerdy things and fight "worldsuck" which means that they fight the things that make the world suck such as starvation or bullying. Their symbol is a X made with the Spock hand symbol and the catch phrase is "DFTBA" which stands for "Don't forget to be awesome!" They now have over 840,000 followers on Youtube and are constantly growing and changing their work.

Finally, here I am, in my first attempt at a vlog. I apologize for some of the weird camera angles; filming was harder than I thought!
