Before the business of travel blogging begins, I wanted to share my latest performance of Cuando Calienta el Sol. There are times that a simple memory will make me cringe, produce an involuntary shudder. The embarrassments continued in Honduras as I do my darnedest to completely destroy Cuando, again (Here is the previous video of me singing in Spanish. So, it is a little over the top. I make mean singing faces and also “pump up the jam” to inspire a party atmosphere. This time I sing in a resort in La Ceiba, Honduras. Please note the colossally disinterested on-lookers as I attempt to ham it up to the point of unnecessary toward the end of the video. Still it was a lot of fun, but Luis Miguel does it better.
And just in case you want to give it a try…
As for the business of blogging, I have been slowly making changes to the site to make the experience better for the reader. I am also implementing new features that will hopefully drive a few more bucks through ITKT. Yes, making money online is still a complicated system as advertising dollars hide in deeper holes.
After some feedback from new and regular readers alike, I realize that updates twice a week is simply too many emails. I am now moving back twice a month. And still have to work out the problems with the cosmetics of the current template. I am still debating returning to the old school newsletter. It is more work, but the most well-received newsletter so far.
I have a new game plan that hopes to focus on my success with social networking out into the corporate side of the travel industry.
Your a brave man! 🙂
I wasn’t even drinking.
Who needs Luis Miguel if they can watch you. Devin, you are great entertainment value, whether you write or -sort of- sing!!
You’re my hero!
That was horrendous 🙂
I would be terribly offended, if you were not so correct. 🙂
Not bad, Devin! I think I would have looked way more entertained than the people sitting down. How did you have so many people singing with you?
I have a question about your newsletter. What do you use to put that out? I’m trying to find a new one that I like. Any tips would be appreciated! Cheers!
I use Aweber, but there have been lots of problems and the double-opt in can be a headache for readers — but they are a well-respected company. My back up singers were a few Central American journalists who just love Luis Miguel. I didn’t have the heart to break it to them that I was not Luis Miguel.
Okay now I need to meet the man behind the voice 🙂 too funny!
One day I am sure our paths will cross.
I’m really sorry (I guess) that I missed your live performance in La Ceiba, Devan. Who knows, this video might even go viral. Saludos from Vancouver.
Not this one John. I hope the rest of your adventure in Honduras went well.
Great post! I love karaoke and have had many a humiliating moment. My signature song is Welcome to the Jungle – I figure, if I’m going to go down, I’m going to do it with a bang. 🙂
This one made me cringe. The first time I played it, I had to walk out of the room.
Really!? That was terrible, but it did look pretty fun-unless you had to be in the audience.
Thank you Amy,
You are quite right.
