Video Chat Tonight!

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Hi All,

Just a reminder that I will doing the live video chat tonight at 6pm CT in the US. To determine your local time, use this time zone converter (my location is “USA-Texas-Dallas”). Honestly, I’m nervous about possible technical issues, as you never know with the internet! Hopefully everything will go smoothly. A few notes on how it will work:

  • The chat will be done on YouTube, so you’ll actually be inside YouTube, not on this site.
  • You will see me live on video, but I won’t be able to see you. It’s one-way from a video perspective.
  • I will be answering questions from THIS POST, so if you have a question, go ahead and post it there now.
  • There is a traditional chat window to the right of the video within the YouTube interface. This chat window will allow everyone to type chat comments that can be seen by everyone else, including me.
  • Google owns YouTube. Google requires you to login to chat, so you’ll need a Google account. You probably already have one and don’t even know it. Just click the “sign-in” button in the upper right corner of the interface.
  • I will be taking questions from this chat window once the chat begins, so type your questions there during the live broadcast.
  • Because I will be answering questions via the video, I don’t plan on typing into the chat window.
  • I have tested the chat on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer. I have tested it on a Mac and a Windows PC. I have tested it on an iPad and an iPhone. The only problem I found was that the chat window was not visible on the iPhone.
  • The chat will be available on demand after the broadcast is over.


Okay, I think that covers it. See you tonight!

    Hi Darlene! It is 10:25pm Saturday in Australia where I live and I’m off to bed soon. I’m glad you went through all the points about the Live Chat. That was helpful. I’m getting excited about it but, like you, I am more concerned with technical hitches than anything else. I have a Google account but they changed the initial of my name for some reason when it was set up. So, I will simply identify myself as Connie H when I chat since there may be other people named Connie participating. I’m going to use my iPad instead of my iPhone or Mac. Bye for now!

    Hi Darlene! Those storage tips will be great. I really got a lot of good tips today (well yesterday for you).

    That was fun. It was nice to learn more about you ( your tech background, for example). I really appreciate your honesty about giving God credit. I try to use my cards and my creativity to honor Him as well.

    I loved the chat via replay. Can you give a link or a user name so that I can see the pretty storage that Kesha uses in the videos you were talking about in the last few minutes of your video?

        Thank you! I can easily get the “I want… I want” after watching the video. It is so pretty to see all that color incorporated into her room. I am spilling out of my own space right now.

        I’m thinking that I need to learn how to do some purging soon!

    Darlene this is surely going to be one of my favorite techniques of all time!!! How clever, who would have ever though of using toilet paper in that manor!!! I’m thrilled with this and am going to my office (craft room) to work on one. Thanks for another super video!! You’re the best!
