Mermaids and Mystical Creatures

I’ve been filming the opening of my spinning box from spinningbox.com for a while now and I’ve had multiple challenges over the years. First one was what do you use? Tried my computer and my camera…..okay results. Then bought a nice little video recorder and that created a very nice video but the lighting was off…..so I tried various ways to create adequate lighting….and final decided that outside in natural light was the best. That decision led to another problem!

I live next to a trucking company and on a busy highway. On to sound. I tried two different microphones but they only intermittently worked and as anyone who has seen any of the latest videos knows…..I’ve not had sound. Since you can only have ONE box opening there has been no going back for a redo so I kept on looking for a solution. This video I used an “interview” microphone. I have it hung in front of me (hoping to drown out the lawnmowers that seem to be out whenever I want to film).

Let me know how it sound!

 

Facebook Rules

Screenshot_20171021-134822Who knew that this above Facebook post would cause me so much drama today?  I created what I thought was an innocent little post to sell off some fibers quickly. Usually I don’t try to sell on Facebook – every group seems to have a lot of rules. Too many for my brain to understand but after a week off work I thought I could tackle this! How hard could it be??

I created my post and then I shared it to a Facebook group. Yeah me! Yes I read the rules first…I was selling something – check. No links in ad – check. I had the item in my possession – check. I had a site for fiber – check. I remembered to put in the price – check. I was confident that I could figure out how to invoice and get paid – check. I had enough – check.

What could possibly go wrong???????

First a notice from the admin to remove the link to my business….. hhhhmmmm……don’t know how to do that. Matter of fact I didn’t know what they meant. So I took down that post and put it on my page and then linked to the Group. So I’m set! Right?

So I go ahead and post to two other sites. Read their rules and all seem to be okay!

Then I get a message that my original post has been pulled down because I broke another rule. Back to the rules I went: my stuff, my site, priced, description, picture…..

Apparently I couldn’t post in the original group if the price was the same for another site…okay…..not really understanding but back to the rules……there it is right in the beginning of the pinned post. So now I had a choice. Raise the price for the other sites or not post in the original group.

I must be honest I really thought about writing to the person who kept messaging me a lengthy missive about how stupid that last rule really was. I didn’t understand really. I was selling at rock bottom prices and if I put it higher on another site the bad side of me wanted to add – “you can buy it cheaper from me in another group.” But reason prevailed and I just removed my posts except from the one site. I couldn’t handle figuring out MORE rules for the other groups.

So how do you do posing in groups?? Do the rules drive you crazy? How do you respond when the admin admonishes you for breaking the rules?

Thanks for letting me rant a little bit!   Kerry
