How to get over stage fright around doing a live video:
Step 1. Find the link to create a video
Step 2. Spend 20 minutes walking around the studio arranging props and looking at myself on the camera screen trying to find a good background
Step 3. Decide my hair looks awful, fuss with hair
Step 4. Wander around the studio some more looking at the phone and the button that says “start live video” and rearrange props some more
Step 5. With only the barest of an outline in mind, press record and start talking
Step 6. As soon as reasonable turn the camera on the props and off the nervous person talking 🙂
Step 7. Remember to remind people to visit the Virtual Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival the first weekend in October
Step 8. Wrap it up, hopefully gracefully, and stop recording.
Step 9. Try to figure out what to press next to save and post the video
Step 10. Reload page over and over until video appears, all the while having a slight panic attack that you lost the video and will have to do it over again.
Step 11. Decide if you want to promote your impromptu, totally unadvertised video.
Step the last. Well, you recorded it so you might as well. Here’s the link (I hope).
