I’m so excited – the Fall Stamp Retreat is almost here! And this year I have a fun surprise for those of you who weren’t able to attend — I’ll be “periscoping” from the event!
What is a Periscope? In technical terms, it’s a live-streaming video mobile app, but I prefer to think of it as my live TV channel, right from my phone! And the best part? You can interact and chat with the broadcaster — in this case, me!
So, how do you take part in this live Broadcast?
1) Start by adding the Periscope App to your phone.
go to your App Store, type in PERISCOPE and download the free App.
open the app and register by either using your cell phone number or Twitter account (Twitter is easiest if you have an account.)
2) Find me and follow me on Persicope.
To find me, click on the “3 little people” icon (see image to the left – you can enlarge this by clicking on the picture) and then click on the magnifying glass icon to search for Barb Brimhall. You’ll see my picture.
When someone you follow (like me!) goes live, your phone will let you know with a “whistle” sound. Just open your Periscope app and join my broadcast.
To comment, click on the “say something” in the lower left corner and type in the box that pops up.
To let me know you like what I am sharing, tap in the lower right hand corner to give me love hearts. (These are so fun!)
To comment to someone else who comments just tap on their comment box, click reply when the next box pops up, type your reply and send. (So yes! not only can you chat with me, you can chat with others on the broadcast!)
I plan to share projects, events from the day and other fun stuff. I hope you’ll try it – I’ll do my first broadcast Friday night (around 8:30pm) so come join us! It will almost be like being at the Retreat!
