Working from home means I often feel disconnected from the rest of the world… the real world. So of course I think it’s amazing to be able to connect with others in real-time as if I was a social butterfly, chatting it up in a cool coffee shop.
Enter Periscope! It’s the latest social media platform by Twitter allowing you to broadcast live anytime, anywhere. People can tune in and comment live, so it’s a community thing that can’t be contrived since it’s LIVE broadcasting.
I’m really a shy person and have never felt comfortable doing video, even though I love watching videos of others who share their art. But the ease of using Periscope made me dive in, not to mention the buzz!
I decided to join in on the fun and put myself out there – finally. Although I’m busy caring for my newborn and toddler, I know that my business has been in a slump because I refrain from putting myself out there fully. There are a lot of fears around my hesitations… but for a variety of reasons – RIGHT NOW – I really need to step up. This is a first step in that direction. Join me? My handle is @tortagialla
Are you on Periscope? Would love to follow and chat up!
