Facebook Live is My New Favorite Thing

If we’re friends on Facebook, you know I am all about some Facebook Live these days. It seems almost every night that I am broadcasting from my kitchen, usually with my kids as petits sous chefs. I’ve had a few people suggest I give YouTube a try…. so I am! But I’m going to be a lazy girl at first and just share my Facebook live broadcasts through YouTube as well.

In case you missed it, here’s the video that started it all for me: a rant about Target and their awful sizing system.

I’m also trying to get my production quality up to snuff, so I’m starting to play with new tools to help me produce videos that are easier to watch. Check out this bad boy that I’m using! I’m doing a little research on what I can do about consistent audio as well so my voice sounds as clear whether I’m at the sink or the stove. If you have any Facebook Live-friendly tips or tools, please feel free to drop a tip or two in the comments.

Equipment is awesome but I’m also having to learn a lot about producing and promoting videos online. It’s a lot to take in while I’m busy growing a business and working on finishing up this pesky associate’s degree.

I’d really love your feedback on these Facebook Live videos and transitioning them over to YouTube. Please feel free to follow me on Facebook so you can watch most of our live broadcasts before I relocate them. Over the next few weeks, I plan on getting all of the Live videos off of Facebook and have them exclusively on YouTube. This will allow me to monetize the videos I make (yep, you’re going to see ads, if you don’t have YouTube Red) but I’ll still be posting them on Facebook so you can easily see them if you missed the Live broadcast.

One final note, I’m working on getting my email list back up and running. If you’d like updates on new posts with resources, videos and the happenings in The Drowsy House, please subscribe!
