I’m on Periscope!

Hey friends! Just wanted to crawl out from under the pile of work that is my blog and book launch and say I’m on Periscope! I’d like to connect with you there.

What the hell is Periscope you ask? Well, it’s a new social media platform that allows users to broadcast live streams, or ‘scopes’ as the kids are calling them. It’s an app-only kind of thing. I had to download it to my phone, and use it there. It connects with Twitter, though I still don’t quite get how. You can find me there under this handle: @CatherineSkinner

Here’s the thing; a lot of people are using Periscope in ways that are profoundly annoying. I don’t want to watch the largely mundane activities that people are broadcasting. However, for every lonely dude filming his cat, there are hundreds of people sharing great information and adorable life moments. Okay, maybe cats fall under that umbrella too.

I intend to use Periscope to do live info sessions, and try to keep things informative and useful. I will also likely subject you to the cuteness of my children.

My super-talented photographer, blogger, health and fitness coach and larger-than-life brother is on the Periscope bandwagon too. We’ve been mentoring each other as we build our brand and try to make the world a better place, in our own unique ways. Here’s my big news for the day:

On Wednesday, October 21st we will be live at 9:00 pm (EST) to answer your dating and relationship questions.

We thought this would be a fun and meaningful way to experiment with Periscope, and also hopefully make your world a little brighter. Why are we qualified to answer your dating and relationship questions? Because I have made a successful and deeply happy family with not one but two partners of my own, and because Kyle had some dating experience. To put it mildly. Ahem. Between the two of us, we should be able to help you negotiate any troubled waters, and at the very least, enjoy a good lay with a new conquest.

So yeah, download Periscope, find me @CatherineSkinner and then watch for our 9 pm scope this Wednesday. You can also watch on your computer via this link.

Oh, and if you have any questions you’d like to send in advance, you can send them to me here. Your anonymity is always sacred to me.

More info on Periscope can be found in this great post from Small Biz Trends.

The journey of this blog has taken up such a huge space in my heart and soul. Thank you to all of you who have done such a wonderful job of visiting this site regularly, I sincerely appreciate it.

I’m doing my very best to try and post every single day. It’s never very difficult to think of what to write, I feel like inspiration is all around me, but it is sometimes challenging to find the time to write with three active and amazing little people to shepherd. We all have things that we love to do that we’d like to make more time for, don’t we?

I love writing, and I love knowing that you’re reading.

I’m growing this writing practice bit-by-bit and day-by-day. I’m getting to know my readers, and I’m trying to define my voice and my space here on the Internet. There are a few things you can do to help this blog keep growing. Do you think you might lend a hand? It won’t take long, I promise, and it will be very easy…

Some simple steps you can take to help:

  1. Make sure you ‘like’ my Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/pbmommy
  2. Follow me on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/Playboy_Mommy
  3. Visit the blog every day. I post at 11am, even on the weekends. Read the most recent post, and then have a look at some of the older ones. There’s some really juicy stuff there.
  4. Follow me on Pinterest here: http://pinterest.com/playbmommy/
  5. Comment on the posts! Help me build a little community here and comment on the post itself, rather than on Facebook or Twitter. Those comments are nice too, but comments on the blog posts are best for the blog because it gets more people talking and I want to hear what you have to say!
  6. Share the blog with your network. Help me get new people interested in our community!
  7. Send me suggestions, or any questions you might have, about anything! I’m not just writing for myself anymore, and I want to create content that you find interesting and amusing.

Thank you in advance for your continued support. Without you, I’d have given up on writing long ago.

Kisses on your nose,

Playboy Mommy
