My First Live Periscope Video!

Yep I was nervous. And it shows.

I forgot to say a lot of stuff I meant to say. Oops. 
I'll do better next time. And the time after that and.... I will improve with practice.

But here it is, my first Periscope Video!!  It was LIVE on ‪#‎Periscope‬: 3 Tips For Writing a Blog but you can watch it for 24 hours after it aried  at

It went live at 12:20 p.m Eastern Time.

What is Periscope? It's the latest Social Media live streaming app. It's pretty popular and it's fairly new. It's interactive, viewers can chat with you and send you love in the form of hearts. 

And it's free so it's win-win. I plan on using Periscope to do weekly 5-10 minute videos (they're called "scopes" on Periscope) that range from Tips to Q&A.  If you download the free app for your Android, iPhone or iPad, just follow me (@LorineMS) if you want to know when I'm scoping. 

There are so many interesting and fun scopes out there! I've watched subway musicians in New York City, learned about using Periscope, watched a 4 year old boy rocking it to hip hop music, and yes, even watched a guy making a fancy drink in his kitchen. 

Hope you join me on Periscope and if you do, be sure to let me know that you read my blog.

How exciting! You amaze me with all you do and all you share in genealogy! This is another job well done! Looking forward to more 'scopes'!
