Oops.. I Did It Again, or Oops.. There It is1967

So, Blab turned out to be a bust -

It had so much promise. I love both the simplicity for newbies (vs. the over-engineered Google Hangout)..

..and its ease in creating re-purposed contact.

Now, there's Steemit, which offers a new rabbit-hole..

I know, I know - folks here swear by "build your own castle," but how about leveraging the traffic of these other sites?

Can't we have our cake AND eat it? Otherwise, what's the point??

I have learned all to well that building on smb else's platform just doesn't work.

Not me. Not again. Well, not until I try again.

Isn't G+ HOA going away? I do a monthly HOA with two others and I thought I read they are getting rid of it???

Also, has anyone tried zoom? If you did what did you think?

G+ and HOA have been going away for a long time... but they are still here.

I use Zoom almost weekly.

Works fine for my purposes. They have a free and and an advanced version.

I don't have a face for video or a voice for podcasts so I write....and I struggle there as well. 8-)

Too funny! I think you would do well on video and you are quick with the lines and funny - being personable and 'genuine/real' is all most people want today.

What other options are out there beside the FB live and now I think Twitter and either Instagram or Snapchat are doing a video live type thing also.

They now have classes on 'How to be genuine.'

I failed. I didn't want to follow their method. I preferred to do things my way.

I prefer to use my Samsung phone and upload the recording to YT and call it a day...

Everything else is too unreliable at this point.

It's safe to say that YT is not going away....at least for awhile.

Building on another platform is bad form.

I have used Zoom for a couple of years now. I discovered Blab about October of last year. I liked the social component that allowed for organic traffic to my presentations.

Blab was great for casual, what I call "coffee shop" interactions. Zoom is more suitable, I think, for classroom or boardroom style presentations and group discussions.

So, for now, I'm back to Zoom for all my live streaming. 3 times a week. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, at 1:00 p.m. ET. http://goo.gl/9idBJT

I have been doing some 'quick tip' video lately. Usually under 2 minutes b/c attention span of people today is not there and will not stay if not relevant.

In regard to genuine - I am who I am and that is who I am! Lol

@Rev

Did you have content hosted at Blab? Or did you download and back it up elsewhere?

@tammysoffices

Thank you, Tammy. It was great to have you with us today. I'm still getting back on stride with the loss of Blab last Friday. Zoom is a more stable, more superior, platform in some respects however it does not offer the social media aspect nor the "push" communication. I'm working on effective options for contact/reminder protocols.

For now, I'll post any updates on the WizardsPlace Live-Streaming page: http://goo.gl/9idBJT and will be adding replay links to the sidebar on that page.

@Belew

I did not have all my Blab replays secured when they shut down. They seem to have allowed a window for downloading and I am working on it, but they are BIG files and it's taking time.

I am also working at getting them posted on You Tube and securing copies in my cloud storage. Didn't there used to be more hours in the day? I'm sure I remember having more time to get things done!

Whew! That is a life saver now isn't @Rev.

I enjoyed it very much and would have stuck around but had too much work to do. Thanks!

I try to keep the formal presentation part (recorded) to 1 hour or less but the open discussion session (off the record) can, and has, run double that. We get some great attendees with excellent material to share.
