I did my first Periscope yesterday, and I couldn't be prouder of myself. I've never liked being in front of the camera, and it took quite a lot of deep breaths to muster the courage to make that first broadcast. Thankfully, I had the loveliest people join me for my 'pilot', and I felt very much supported and encouraged. (Thanks guys!) Just as I expected, the interactive aspect of Periscope is just wonderful. It's so much fun being able to see people come online, say hello, and answer questions on the go. I'm really glad I took the plunge and can definitely see myself using the app regularly as a means of communicating and engaging with all of you guys on a more personal level. The fact that all the videos on Periscope are live and unedited make it the most authentic social media out there (along with its competitor Meerkat), in my opinion. Happy to share more of my thoughts on this as I start to do more broadcasts on an ongoing basis. In the meantime, if you're on Periscope, be sure to follow along so that you don't miss out on the conversation!
Anyway, if you missed my first Periscope, here are some shots of the stunning Moleskine journals that I shared during the broadcast. These journals arrived in the mail last Friday (hot off the press from MILK books), and I haven't been able to take my eyes (or hands) off them since. Together, these three books hold four years of my personal journaling from 2011 to 2014, and I can't tell you how precious they are to me already. I love that these books are made from genuine Moleskine materials and look and feel exactly the same as the Moleskine notebooks you would buy from a store. The quality of the print surpasses my expectations, and I already know that I will treasure (and read) these for decades to come. I’ll be doing a proper blog post in the next few weeks, and I’ll share more of my process then, but for now, I hope you feel inspired by these images to do something similar with your own journaling. In fact, I reckon something like this would be perfect for those doing the #lifecapturedproject on the computer…
Happy Tuesday, my friends.
p.s. Thanks for all your well-wishes in response to my little announcement on Instagram!
