Schedules, interviews, streaming… Oh my!

The last few days have been filled with all kinds of action with the kids’ schedule and with my own.  My projects are all coming into fruition and I am loving every minute.

Due to the recent arrival of Meerkat into my life I’ve been enjoying the interactions and the pace of the social app.  I have to admit it has steered me far from my usual online social networking apps for a bit, but I’m fine tuning my schedule constantly.  I’ve met so many amazing people over the last few weeks that I can’t help but be completely addicted.

I did an experimental #20ToppingPizzaChallenge which I concocted with the help of my viewers.  They chose the ingredients and I put it together and ate it!  I live streamed the entire process and ate it in front of my audience as well as recorded it on my radio show.

My next mission is to complete another Meerkat Marathon where I stay up for at least 26 hours to beat my previous record of 25 hours of live streaming.  I will not sleep throughout the whole 26 hours so I’m hoping I will be joined by my frequent viewers to help keep me awake.  I’m already exhausted just thinking of it, however I love to entertain and hanging out with some great personalities online.  Much like my MeerkatPizza above, the people who watch me are a mixtape of flavours, from sweet to awkwardly uncomfortable.  We are all watching each other and although it is a voyeur’s dream, I believe Meerkat and other live streaming apps have changed the online game completely and I am loving the changes!

This Saturday weather has been fabulous and I have the windows and curtains open, which translates to perfect nap time ambiance. 😀

I wish you all an amazing weekend ! ❤

Watching me, watching you… but LIVE!

I’ve weathered the storm of the Easter weekend unscathed.  I had a huge turkey dinner with all the fixings and also several desserts, at my brother’s house.  The kids played Easter Egg cracking games and ran around with their cousins. I’m really happy we decided to have it on Saturday instead of the traditional Easter Sunday.  It gives me a bit of extra time to chill out and catch up on some need-to-do laundry.

About a week ago I discovered a new app; now if you know me, you will know that I’m always looking for some cool apps and games for my phone and iPad; well, the app is called Meerkat.  It’s available of all IOS users (Android version to come), but you can watch live streaming on your computer.  Meerkat is a new social networking app which allows you to watch people and events through live video streaming.  Your viewers respond to you through their Twitter accounts.  I held 2 Meerkat Marathons to test the app.  I ran one 20hr stream and another 24hr stream during the first 2 days and Meerkat was connected and going strong.  I have also been able to meet new indie artists and great new friends.  It’s great to know that I can reach out and interact with my Twitter peeps as well as help others.  I am currently streaming every day which means I’ve gotta be somewhat camera friendly at least once a day haha.  This is a great tool for vloggers, businesses, independent work, etc.  It’s safe to say I have a new addiction.

I hope you are all having a great weekend and hit me up if you see me on Meerkat!

Much love to you all and thanks for stopping in!
