On this day, May 15, 2021, I accepted the invitation to join Clubhouse by fellow Blab.IM Alumni, Coach Jennie. She had just given a convincing presentation about the app during a segment of the Monetize Livestreaming NOW Summit put together by Ross Brand. She encouraged me to watch Mike Stelzner’s introduction to the app on YouTube to get started on the right foot. It’s an excellent introduction so I’m sharing it here, just in case anyone I follow needs to see it. Because of what I learned I did attach my Twitter account to it but still need to do the same for Instagram. Stelzner’s channel offers a playlist of additional videos on using the app, too.
Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time working on my video production site, Barbi.Live, as I am preparing to go LIVE on Amazon, Twitch, and YouTube this summer with my storytelling project. When I signed up for the Amazon Influencer Program, I had every intention of becoming an active participant right away but sadly, my cancer caregiver role became rather intense, finally leading up to the death of the loved one I was caring for. To sign up for Amazon LIVE, I had to download the Amazon Creator LIVE app to an iPhone. A Windows/Android advocate, I had not been inspired to own iOS devices until I saw the new purple iPhone 12. That’s what it took to get me to purchase an iPhone. With help from Apple Support, I finally opened the phone box yesterday, but after five hours, working with both Apple and Verizon support staff, I still have not been able to get things set up properly in the Apple App Store to download the app. My schedule today is pretty intense so I doubt I will be able to finish the setup until tomorrow. Wish me luck on that. I will be back to mark my successful completion here as it will be worth remembering. Have a beautiful day!
