Health

One of the most difficult adjustments I had to make after my first colon cancer surgery in 2011 was having to wear an ostomy bag. Fortunately, I only had to wear one for six months. Today I was reminded of that experience when I found this video of a young woman demonstrating how to change a bag. I thought to myself, “If only I had seen that video back when I was going through the experience.” I share it here now in the event you or someone you care about is facing the challenge. If you were or are a caregiver of someone going through this, I think you will find a new appreciation for what has to be done at least twice a week depending on the type of bag worn.

My friend and Social Media Superstar Mari Smith has declared 2013 as the Year of the Video. After attending her FREE 2013 – The Year of the Video webinar,  I signed up to attend her Video Success Secrets, a webinar training series that starts on February 12, 2013 so I’m searching for answers to issues that concern me most in producing my own videos. Celebrity Makeup Artist Kim Borio gives some great tips on applying makeup for video productions in this video from Better.TV.
