In the video created Oct. 13, Anthony says, "There really hasn't been that much going on except now for this and, you know, I'm extremely excited. I'm extremely excited that I'll be able to Skype and obviously keep a video log, take some pictures and then I have something that I can finally call mine."
Anthony was acquitted last July of murder in the death of Caylee, but was convicted on four counts of lying to law enforcement for claiming that Caylee had been stolen by a babysitter. She is currently serving one year of probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction.
After being released from jail, Anthony went into hiding amid death threats from people who were shocked that she was not convicted of killing her daughter.
In the video, Anthony alternates between seeming relaxed and happy with being pensive and serious. She expresses excitement with her new video blog.
"This has just been such a blessing in so many ways and now I, in some ways, have someone to talk to when I'm by myself so I'm not bothering the poor dog who I've adopted and I love and he's as much my dog as any of the other pets I've ever had," she says.
Anthony does not mention her daughter or her parents during the video blog. She is estranged from her parents who made it clear that she cannot come home after Anthony's lawyer accused her father of molesting her as a child and helping to dispose of Caylee's body.
She must stay in Florida as she serves out her year-long probation and checks in monthly with a probation officer. There is a possibility that she could get off probation early, but she says in the video, "It's going to be a while [before] I leave."
After speaking on and off for just over four minutes, Anthony signs off, but not before suggesting that there will be more to come from her.
"So, this is the end of my first video log. I'll probably do another one later…maybe I'll bring the dog, who knows?" Anthony says. "But this is again the first of many and I'm looking forward to this. It's going to be scary because I hate being on camera, but, I don't know, I need to conquer that fear at some point…this is a good start. So, here's hoping. It's the end of the first, just the beginning."
