So, are you on Periscope yet? I guess it’s one of the fastest growing social media networks ever. I have to admit, the first few times I download (and deleted) the app, I didn’t really get it…and it annoyed me.
But, it’s growing on me…and my 11-year-old daughter issued me a challenge. She told me I HAD to do some scopes. I told her she was crazy:
There is a reason I write a blog. I like to think about what I’m going to say…and rewrite it…and edit it, and I can’t do that on Periscope. Plus, I’m an introvert, I don’t like to see myself on camera, and trolls make me crazy.
But my daughter kept insisting that I had things to share with other moms, so I told her I’d think about it.
Anyway, on Monday, I decided to plunge in and just do it. I’ve been trying to do stuff that makes me uncomfortable, because I’ve realized the only way to grow is to be stretched and do what is hard for me. I have two scopes under my belt now, and I invite you to join and check out tomorrow’s scope (Thursday at 2 PM CT). I’m going to be sharing 3 tips for surviving survival mode!
I’m not sure I’ll keep “scoping” once the 30 days is up, but at least I’ll have gotten out of my comfort zone…and hopefully gotten better at the whole video thing! Plus, it seems like a great way to make some new friends, and I look forward to chatting with you there!
