I am learning new tricks

Pin It Ok guys, I did something entirely new!

You know that I have been trying to develop a business and in my search on how to effectively use social media, I learned about Periscope.  Are you all on Periscope?  Do you just watch others or do you actively use it?

Well, if any of you were behind the times like me, it is a way to live broadcast your thoughts and it is associated with twitter.  If you already have a twitter account, you can just log onto periscope using the same log on information.  But if you are like me and have avoided twitter, then you can choose to set up an account just on periscope, or on both.  I did both.  But I am not very good at coming up with short pithy statements so I am not sure how much I will use twitter.

But anyway ... I broadcasted my first periscope 'talk' ... 'show' ... I don't know what to call it.  As I was broadcasting, the camera was not showing so I had no idea what was being seen.  Needless to say it did not show like I had wanted.  I looked pretty silly trying to show things that were not in the camera view.  And though I new what I wanted to say and went over it a couple times in my mind, I still rambled on and on and on.  I had one viewer and they only lasted a minute. Frankly, I don't blame them.

Want to watch?  I was able to save the URL, so I think you can go see it.


Update:  I guess the video didn't truly save.  So I will have to work on that skill too!

See? I pretty much am horrible at this.  Go ahead and laugh at me.  I sure did. But, that does not mean I will give up.  I hope to do a short broadcast most evenings until I have enough experience to be able to either be good at it or know that I really don't like it.

Let me know if you use periscope so I can follow you and see how it should be done.

And, if you happen to have an opinion on whether I should use cotton or acrylic, or mix of both on the next bath poof I make; please share that too!!

If you are interested in hearing more from us, there are a couple ways for you to keep in touch!
