Just Hanging Out…


Lately…Bertha…has been pushing me…to try something new…well…not just Jane Carrollanything…she’s been pushing me towards…Google Hangouts…and I have to admit…the idea excited me…making my own little videos…all about…Bertha…of course…sounded like a lot of fun…

Only problem was…I didn’t have a clue how to do that…so…I did what I do best…I Googled it…and found a lot of information…but I was still trying to figure out exactly how to do it…so I was doing more research before I got started…

The only thing about it…the more research I tend to do…the less excited I get…and…Bertha…knows this…I’ll start out so excited…but after a week or so of checking it out…my excitement is gone…and…I usually don’t get it done…

So…knowing this…yesterday afternoon…she gave me a huge shove…in front of the computer…and clicked…record

I didn’t have a script…I didn’t have a plan…but…I sat there…and I recorded my first Google Hangout…now…I did have a little safety net…I did it as private…so I could delete it if it was absolutely horrible…

But…while it isn’t as good as I hope they will become…I was proud of my first effort…and now…I have the confidence to do the next one for real…

Bertha…says it reminds her of a lot of things in my life…there’s a time to stop…overthinking things and take action…because…the longer I think about it…the more nervous and uncertain I become…there’s a fine line between figuring it out and doing it…

And…she adds…sometimes…doing it is the best way of figuring it out…

  1. Ohhh you did a hangout, that’s so cool (err I mean you and Bertha did a hangout!) – I’ll be over to the link to check it out. It’s scary branching out but I believe in you and know you will do great :)
