13 Periscopes from CHA 2016

I was determined to learn to use Periscope at the Craft & Hobby Association’s (CHA) mega show in Anaheim earlier this month, and by George, I did it!  Periscope is a live streaming video app owned by Twitter. When people watch the videos live, they can type in questions and interact with the person making the video. You’ll see in these that I asked questions from viewers, and passed along well wishes, to those I was interviewing.

It was amazing how many different countries were represented from the viewers!  It was fun and nerve wracking at the same time, and I learned a lot in the process.  Audio is tricky with the camera turned away from me, plus being on the show floor (it’s quite loud) is distracting, so my next ones should be much more smooth.  All in all, though, not  bad for new technology and a first timer!  Here is a list of who I did my ‘newbie’ scopes with:

I hope you’ll follow me on Twitter and Periscope (@marjiekemperCM) as I plan to do a lot more Periscoping this year. We can also connect on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube, and I do put out a monthly newsletter as well that includes info on upcoming workshops.

Thanks for the visit!
