Its our monthly live ‘How much money does an Etsy seller make’ and I look at my stats for the month of February
Did I make anything? Did I make any changes? How does it compare to last year?
hello hopefully this is working if anybody's in the check please let me know if you've been hanging about for the past few weeks you'll know I am bothered about if this if this life is actually working because I've had some trouble but anyway hopefully all fingers crossed I just see Rose I need popped up in chat or so yeah and mom says it's working awesome great great thank you guys thank you so much for bearing with me it has been such a nightmare but we are back unfortunately still doing Google Hangouts which is nowhere near as nice as the other way I used to do it but we're back for our monthly scheduled broadcast of what does what what do they call this how much does a lazy seller lazy eats eat sell at make in February 2019 so we can find out what my sales were like for February yeah I'm gonna ask you guys if you think I did better or worse than this time last year but if you don't know the answer to that question um I'm not angry I'm just disappointed that you didn't watch Friday's video it was really the last video I put up because you should have a fair idea if I did better or worse February yeah no no spoilers really here it was it yeah it's pretty impressive but we're still going to cover that because this really does seem to be the favorite streaming what people like watching so awesome guys so who have we bought as I said we have Rose Annie good morning where he's a me and mum good afternoon cup of coffee for everybody and paper crane wishes good morning crafters hey there I like that yeah good morning crafters like that should there should be a saying somewhere right I'm just gonna get a set up to show you my stats for the month um you guys you guys let me know how your weeks gone yeah it has been a week let me know how your weeks are gone and stuff well I'm setting up and yes just let me know what you've been up to eh you'll see what I've been up to you'll see once once I bring these screens up anyway we have Harley in the house oh good to see you Carly can only stay a couple of minutes but wanted to drop in and say hi hey good to see you Harley and everyone should check out our least well it's not how these Channel what's what's the name of your channel um house of hacks that's it I want to check out Harley's actual proper channel the house of hacks there's some cool stuff in there there's still a photography one of making a flame out of a lightbulb or something I'm terrified but I want to try it Diane Robinson good morning lovelies I like that to work and some good good catchphrase news coming in and Megan's here as well good morning right I'm I'm nervous to get started on this this talking about the money thing I do want to say I know most of you know this I don't do this money thing to brag about money or whatever but when I started doing YouTube I was following someone who every month they put up their YouTube money and every every month and they put up what they were earning on YouTube and I found it really inspirational to see someone start and get like real figures because quite often you only hear from the really big guys you don't hear from us as little guys so we've got yep Harley's good is his channel up thank you and Lucy's top Lucy's top Rose polymer clay artist oh cool good to see you and first time watching you live you it's been slow but it's better than it has been what was fantastic because February's generally a slow month so good to see you early nothing to be nervous about no apart from explode in my entire house I mean when my lights when my lights my regular standard lights blow the whole of the downstairs fuses I need you around to fix my house my sense of it because when the downstairs lights fuse and I I saw out the fuses there then my burglar alarm goes off but and I and it's really loud in the coverage where I have to fix everything so then I've got a burglar I'm going off that I have to fix so I'm worried I would try I would get one photograph and then have to redo the fuses redo the burglar alarm so that's that's what I'm fearing a little bird thank you they're so sweet of you yes it's it's some people just don't like people talking about money but it's I think it's important if we're selling on eat see we need to we need to know what the deal is right so let's let's get this over over and done with let's have a look at how my month went all right let's do the screen share on this for all you for all you YouTube people if you found whatever is wrong with OBS I cannot get OBS stream labs to work at all so we're on Google hangout so this means you lose my ugly mug which which is fine for me and when we're going to screen share so let's let's try this see if I can get this to work bear with me still learning about this when trait share entire screen that should be if you let me know that should be UK's getting to see my whole screen this is such a pain okay great that seems to be working I'm highly recognized should do I should do the exploiting light bulbs at my mom's house yeah mom sort of really long drive okay screens working thank you guys and and I believe audio still working so that's all good so for the month of February well we'll see actually my views and my visits are way down one seventeen percent down on us and they steady seventeen percent on views and visits and the reason for this is since about November I've been running down and when my items and throughout than my hands and you can't see me when my items are expiring after the four months I was just leaving them because they were ones that weren't selling so I've just been letting them expire and my plan was to be to catch up on my Christmas orders and then I'd start resurrecting the dead and see you know what differences what different things we could do with the old list things to make them really work but yeah that hasn't been a thing because the sales were doing so well anyway so that was running down so that's much lower than what my usual views and visits are and that's the reason why there's just significantly less listings in my shop if I think I'm down to about sixty listings let's have a look what what active listings have we got this would just take a wee minute too late up everything is so slow active listings Oh 33 active listings that's all I've got in my shop chest I've usually got about 300 so well explains where my views are right down and at the minute I'm wanting them to be down oh wow Hartley's all Hartley's families about a 12 hours drive away goodness okay I can't complain about the four hours then although it's been significantly longer than four hours sometimes when the weather has been hideous little bird do I have a waiting list for my products oh yeah listings are now being taken for April which is scary and even then yeah I'm a bit nervous about about getting them all done in time making your dad has the same business and says February's the slowest yeah it depends what your business is but certainly I find February can be pretty rubbish for me the whole of the summer tends to be a bit rubbish and then Christmases started getting earlier every year basically from for me but I used to I'd get a big – roundabout American Thanksgiving Sabre Monday Black Friday time and I don't do a sale or anything but that would be my spike and then that started moving earlier and earlier and then this year from October I've been solid through from October so Christmas has started early which is awesome right and I'll say okay for those of you that didn't see that didn't see my Friday video this big spike here in my views what happened was one of my customers bought a sculpture for her friends for her friend's birthday and as she did when she was opening her birthday presents her friend instagrammed about her gifts and she has 125 thousand followers on Instagram so that drew a lot of attention people really liked my product and that's that's where my spikes come from Dan's had great visits and views and tons of favorites but sales are almost non-existent in February Diane I know it feels like it sucks but all the likes and views are a great thing they're like building up your customers your potential customers they're getting you notice they're building up your SEO but people are buying less in general people are buying less and Fairbury because this came in nothing to buy for there's not even you know very few people have birthdays because it's a shorter month so there's less people having birthdays yeah so it's a bit sake but I'd still look at you're getting good visits and views and favorites so that's that's as good as you can be doing hi Lee see you later really good to see you thanks wish stopping in yeah right so where were we with this yet so 17% down but you can see basically one Instagram person with a good following and a good following that likes her dog so they liked my my item and you can see you can just about see the from the big spike hides everything but it's been higher since then but it drops right down that's the thing with viral you get a little boost but it doesn't last forever but I can't manage it too so for the month of February I had 40 orders and for those that don't know to put it into context if I'm going flat out I can make about two sculptures in a day but really I'm struggling to do one and have anything else in my life going so that's that's a good month and a half two months worth of orders in one month not only in one month in 18 in one day so that's like a month's worth of sales in one day a little birds yeah I'm slightly higher after the spike is like I say it drops down but doesn't totally die away because what's happened is you've had all those extra views and they're great views as well from the trim terms of eat see SEO because it's saying oh she's bringing in new people from not on eat see so that way then eats you can say well this this is person that's doing as good and not only that every was um three or four listings that I kept selling and realist things so they were getting a super boost in SEO because it was saying that basically SEO and I should put my face on again for a minute shouldn't I I don't like this thing right how do i unscreened chair so I can talk to you guys for a minute great unscrews that unscreened chair that should be back to me yes that's back to me yes so basically where was a what was I saying yeah so the SEO because each item eats he's going well if someone frames that searches for this term will this item has made us so much money people are seeing it and buying it so that's a good item so it does boost it up in the SEO so the spike will be going back down it will be dropping down on to lower than the spike but higher than before because there's still not that many people looking this was just like a total random lit this was impulse base for people they're going wow that's great I'm gonna buy that whereas they weren't searching though nobody was shopping it just happened it was a random happenchance little bird yes I can pre make some armatures in advance I do I don't part way I do when I've had a quiet time I did make up some bodies and things in the past and but then but basically I've I've been flat out since October so I ran out and also what's what's also happened is I change like I'll change what my core wall is and suddenly I'm like I don't like that anymore so I can but I I ran out of time to do that oh and if I could just employ people to make little dog bodies that would be awesome but I don't like the idea of that but ya know it totally is a good idea and it is something I do when I can and also when I'm not feeling inspired you know I've got all these 40 orders probably what I've got way more than 40 orders because I haven't caught up yet but some days when I'm just not feeling inspired I can't do that the arty back here this guy keeps looking at me so I'll show you here so I can't do the finishing touch ease doing the eyes doing the face doing all the the cool things to finish them off I just don't feel inspired to do that so I'll make a look at what's coming up next I mean obviously I have to have an idea of the type of dog is it you a long back dog gives it a skinny dog that kind of thing but I'll make three or four bodies just to be I'm still working but that's not the that's not the artistic bit that's the that's the bit I can do easy if that makes sense but yes a little helper would be awesome I don't know many people that needle felt around here and to be honest I I actually I did another thing I've done another thing after this bike because I've got so many orders I've also put my braces up again so if I can get the crazies to a level that I could pay someone but just now I'm kind of working wage so I couldn't really if you know what I mean I I couldn't justify paying someone at the minute cause I'm barely paying myself but it will come it's well it's come on come complaining no I did kids this month I did good I'm happy Wendy's having the inspired issues right now yeah I totally understand it I mean I it's a balance if you're doing this creatively and you really want this to be a business then you do have to say sometimes you're not going to feel inspired you just it's a job you have to do your job and that sucks that's dose of rubbish thing but you have to think of that it's like okay I'm not inspired today but when I did a 9 to 5 I wasn't inspired you just had to go in and do your job and sometimes you've just got to do that you just have to say I am making this thing today that's I think that's the difference between being artistic or being an artist if it's your job you've got bills to pay you know it sucks but I totally understand but anyway I hope you get you I hope you get your major back another thing like I do like I've been doing with you guys here on the lives is to just jump through like Instagram or Pinterest or something and find stuff and just copy someone you know not to sell but just copy someone else's work get some ideas just do something go for a walk on the beach but just say to yourself I'm gonna make something today just not necessarily right now I'm gonna walk the dog I'm laughing Ben's been slacking these bits of the corner to say I'm gonna walk the dogs and Ben's been utterly charming we're going to be putting him on camera at the minutes um Daniel what did we say about URI he's in your bracy's well there's this is the second time this year I've raised my braces so yeah yeah I'm gonna be making one you know well it this this is the thing as well when you're when you're selling your art you're not sure it's like it's not selling is it too expensive and then when you get a spike like this and people buy like crazy you're like no it's not too expensive it's just not being seen so you've got to get get it seen a little bird yeah if it's all a balance isn't it it's a pain making yeah it is cool to keep it as is your hobby but at the same time some things you have to push you so be inspired make something but yeah if you're not doing it as a business then there is a little easier but you know you still get ongoing challenge yourself think think of something to make and it could be a good challenge I mean we've talked about this with with YouTube doing like one video a day or doing one thing a day challenge yourself to a week of creating every day or something and then take a big break and go and have fun but sometimes I did um what month did I do I did one video a day in August one video a day in August and we spoke about that there and I started August and I had an idea for about five videos but the more the more you swing your feet forward the more the idea is just gonna come to you and by the end of it I finished the month with more ideas than I started the month with so it's the same with felting that's I keep saying we spoke about this but when I had the big orders from the shop which doesn't seem so big now when I had like 35 orders to go to a shop and that seemed like a massive order and now I'm sitting on way more than that but when I had that I had this deadline I had to make and it wasn't it wasn't specific dogs I just had to make stuff so what I did I just did it and by the end of it I was inspired I was like oh I'm making this and this I love making this type of dog and I straighten one of these so sometimes just doing it brings creativity some things you just can't sit and wait for it that's just my thinking anyway where are we Susan's snowing like crazy in Middle Island I of course that it is bloomin cold here in Scotland like the sun's out but it is freezing I'm actually sitting here with a cover on me and big big t-shirt and thick trousers because it's bloomin treason so busy editing photos for new listings this eetzi business is so time-consuming oh yeah I know what you mean I've never been so busy in your life yeah I'm totally with you there and the amount of time you put into your chakras but when your shops not busy you can still be super busy doing things that aren't making you money yet but they'll make money they're gonna make money in the future so it is worth it there is Annie yep thank you yes hi – hi – over an unwelcome new people Thank You Megan sword the future friends but I like to make what I want not what I'm ordered to in case someone hates it yeah I totally understand that I know a lot of people won't take Commission's because it is hard it and I always find it every time if I make something for someone and I'm not happy I think it's a bit mere they always love it and I sent it good I always I stop I make it until it's done enough and then I photograph it and send the photographs to the people because I could keep going until I'm happy but they were already happy like four hours ago so I stopped I take the pictures and the ones I don't like the customers always go oh that's awesome that's great thank you for doing that and I send it and the ones that I love I have ones I'm like I just sounds like this is so cool this is great fun and the customer's always like no don't think we're there but and this is it's hard not to be like all huh like oh like the wee dog got pie also talks here but this wee dog I showed you last week and I did these Photoshop and he's customer and the customer saw it I was like so happy because this is a different pose that have not done and you know I was like oh cool and the customer wasn't happy with it and now before years old get mad and say the thing to not do is to not go oh no the customer's not happy with it this is terrible you know and get all depressed she wasn't happy because I'd missed the white pause no it's that little thing you see see what I mean so rather than go like oh no she's not happy with it it's like she's totally happy with it I just missed I just missed something that takes two minutes to fix and I had that in fact now that I'm thinking of it right the dog that caused this spike the dog that was shared on Instagram I made her and then the person that was buying it was like no I really don't think we're quite there yet not happy with the colors of the coat and it was a lot of work to change it but she was right and I did the change and look at the results oh it was so loved so and quite a lot of times customers ago no no not happy with that and when you come back and you contact them it's like the ears at the wrong angle or if there's just one slight little tweak it's it's not that the sculpture is bad it's just that the sculpture is not quite the pet if that makes sense so you have to not take it personally they're not telling you you've made a bad sculpture they're just saying there's one wee thing it's like ages ago I got a logo done of Ben if you've been on my a July mains YouTube channel which I've not touched in a very long time but the logo of that is like a drawing of Ben and the person when they did it to start with it was gorgeous it was wonderful but they had both of his ears up and he doesn't really have both of his ears up so I mentioned that and I think the mail I got back she was a little bit snooty about it but you did say revision and when she changed it is perfect it's gorgeous but just need Ben has one year up from one year down if he has two years up it's not it's not Ben if that makes sense right I'm behind with a chat where am I yeah so I hope that coverage that Megan but I totally understand it it would be nice just to make things but I found it much harder just to sell generic things and also because my dogs are cross breeds I totally understand people want a thing that's their pet so it's I like making custom although it's a lot more stressful than just making things little bird I don't know about you guys but I can get too much stuff overwhelm which can really restrict my creativity and really need to take the cut craft room and displays all the stuff that's in the way yeah I I don't even want to show you what a bomb see there's a reason the cameras only in specific places even though this junket stayed there but yeah and I won't lie I'll think the the past couple of days okay no I've been I've been felting but I don't think I've been very very efficient at it it's been a lot of farting about doing the same thing and I've been very much like I know people if they tagged me on Facebook about things and I've been bad at getting back to them I've been bad opening my emails I can't I feel like I'll pull the covers over my head and said go away I've got something that's done oh yes staff to answer emails that would be so nice ahem little bird Megan I know what you mean it can be daunting making stuff to order yeah oh yeah it's a good way no knowing what will sell in the future yeah it's something I meant to do but I forgot to do it was something I was planning for the the bullet journal which I've not done March yet and it's something I was planning for the bullet journal was to write down all the breeds of dogs that people are asking for so I can see what are the most popular breeds of dogs but to be perfectly I'm doing it again I get see what I'm not doing just now is I'm not I'm not taking the photographs and mail and my customers like I should but the breeds of dogs that are the most popular dish now is kind of tan colored little fuzzy things I don't even know what breed it is but I've got lots of orders for these taper dogs and track them actually a little bit worried because I've got a few sitting here and I'm not sure which which dogs which when I come to photograph them I should make the dog photograph the dog contact the owner but I put a movie on I make the dog and then I move on to the next dog again staff but I could do with people for that and Sandra in the house hello there tundra Wendy Wendy had that problem was making a gift and had so many changes once I sent it he sent me flowers thanking me saying it was like his cat um it was like he's cat never left oh that's lovely see that's yeah that's what it did I find that hole the part is stressful the changes are changes changes you're not quite right but then it's just so lovely especially it's when it's pets that have died or whatever else that's just it's it's lovely and so sweet yeah I totally I take a little of that that's what makes it worthwhile and I mean I've had I'm Nellie well with sales elsewhere and stuff I'm well over a thousand sales well over a thousand custom sculptures I've made for people and so far I've had to that completely rejected and didn't want my sculptures the rest I've managed to bring round I've managed to to fix them so that they liked them and well the two yeah they didn't deserve my work a little bird Boston telluric terriers and golden retrievers are popular yeah Boston Terriers have got a lot of golden retrievers two or three the not been so popular I think also what's popular in what people are asking me for is what they're finding me for so something like I mean like Border Collies Labradors are the most popular dogs but they've also got the most people already making them out there surprisingly and one of my most popular search terms is have an East Harrier and I think it's just because I'm about the only one ranking for it so you know I've I've not seen I've never seen a Havanese in the flesh I've seen Tibetan terriers never have the needs but I have made so many of those little dogs they're really fun to make to all they see Lucy loves the internet connection while hopefully you can get it on the replay if if there's anything right I'm sure everybody else said good stuff so it's worth checking out and Sandra some custom work so Fran says some turn out to be nightmares yeah I think most of the time they really are okay and probably about 75% of the time when you think they're nightmares they really aren't it just is you're you're taking it personally and also can you especially if it's with emails you read the tone you think you feel a tone if you're having a bad day and you made something that you love and they're like no that's not right you just take it to heart it's not saying no she had a heart-shaped freckle above her eye you know that's nothing they're saying all of this is wonderful apart from anything and you go OMG but my day is ruined um hey Diane has to run out and help the hubby replace the headlights on his truck good for you yeah I'm great chat have a super day thank you for stopping by and have fun with the headlights depends depends on the type of tracker I used to better changed headlights on cars no problem but now I had a mini once and you had to pretty much lift off the whole of the bonnet and get it was a nightmare so I just pay the garage to do it now Lisi lessee has have any stereo Oh fantastic alright I need to see pictures then I think they look so cute and they're smart as well um Wendy do every charge extra if they have too much changes and no um I get that people do that but I feel in general if I'm having to make changes it's because I missed stuff it's my mistake if that makes sense I know people can be extra fussy but I don't want to charge them like my my guarantee is to not send it until people are happy with it so I you know I I feel it's my mistake rather than them being too fussy and yeah I guess I guess the thing is like released to to people I could have because of my shock policies I could have kept pushing them and saying and what's the problem of exit and forced them to take the item but I think that's that's more the choice rather than charge extra if they're too fussy I just decide and I've only done it twice over but I just decide no you you do not get a been like fuzzy legs original you're not deserving of my work so I mean at the end of the day yeah it's a bit of time well it's a bit of time wasted from me but one of them the two little King Charles Spaniels that I made I just put them up for sale on eBay and their friends got them for an elderly person they knew that just lost their dogs they got them at a discount price but I was actually super super happy that they got them say yeah only see cool I look forward to pictures Sandra had a Tibetan Terrier before my lab I have been either so cute yep I think I could say I've not I've not met Havanese yet but I've seen there's a Havanese dog training display team or there used to be and they had tricks and stuff on YouTube the dogs were amazing they were so good I've worked it's a debate Terriers were so cute and so lovely but oh they were interesting to train say I've worked with a couple I trained dogs well I trained people to train their dogs for agility and the Tibetan Terriers are some of the hardest to motivate dogs that I've had and I've heard – a basset hound but the Tibetan Terrier is hilarious you would feel like you'd teach them something and then they do it and then the next time you'd go come and do this jump and they'd be like no not doing that and what we found we had to do with one of them the a-frame which is a piece of wood in the shape of an a that dogs were an up and over she really liked this so we'd have to go like go through the tunnel now run for the a-frame go over a jump now it's so actually doing the a-frame became the reward and that that was what clicked it in her head that she started doing it but oh it was so funny she would just literally should be like yeah this is fun this is important now no I'm not doing it it's I've never married Lee wait my dog's her Lake collie crosses and they would go all day doing the same thing me is a bit more of a character but in general you say can you do this and they go yep what now whereas this was more like under yeah fed up the winds blow in the wrong way we were she was hilarious I love that talk but it was difficult mightily nose in hey Larry good to see you Mike Selina and Megan's first sold was a horse the guy still talks about it today oh that's lovely it was your fourth project sir and my eyeballs are still watering I know it's disgusting to sit and watch someone poking their eyes and the guy still talks about it today it was your fourth project I think you could I think I could do them better but they love them yeah Oh some of my my original ones are just say that rate hold on great I'm going about the dogs will kick off I'm going to be very professional great excuse me gates they're there for a minute great I think I've shared this before I think I've said this before but this was my first ever needle felted sculpture I didn't sell it because obviously it was for me and this is the first ever one that I made and I've got it just just have it in my sitting room here because it's not great it's really badly felt it looks like a cloud but it's my dog it's kind of my bent now see what I said about the years I didn't even figure out how to bend his one year over but that is the very first thing that got me started and after that I sold a few I made this and people asked how could you make one for me so I made a few and about this level of felting so yeah could I do better now absolutely but people like them because it was something totally different and did you do what have we got my Colina absolutely Daniel we need some work I don't know about the cooking we need saw you eating terrible things I am more than happy to send a pet care package of disgusting things from Scotland so a wonderful wonderful foodstuffs over from Scotland wendy has a little dog would like to train for agility but no cook no clue I go to a club honestly and I would go to a club that's that's not don't don't necessarily go to the are you in America I can't remember if you just say or and kind of you just told me where you are and I've forgotten but anyway and go to a club that Otho is training competition level but they're not super competitive you get clubs that are a bit more more fun and that could give you a start into it and then you can make little jumps and things in your garden but I would totally say go to the right people first just so that you get everything right I started agility with Ben when he was little and I went to a club that wasn't that was doing it for fun which sounds good but that means we weren't doing everything quite right and it's been a lot harder to train out the bad things when we decided that them was awesome and I wanted to compete there are certain things that we'd already trained wrong so it's harder to untrain things yeah as lisa has to go make sure tune in how much warner really good to see you here yeah bacon thank you I always super happy with it I mean it it's not good you know it's not the best felty but it just shows Thank You Mytilene you're fresh looks like a Frankenstein whatever whatever our first elephant looks like it's gonna be way worse it better be way worse than what its gonna be in the future and I'm um trade felting along with me at the same time as I did the ban and she gave up and she just said that Hirst looked terrible but it didn't you just got to keep going um Daniels working on more feed stuff awesome a little bird Blythe do I actually ask people to post pictures of their purchases on Instagram oh I don't I don't ask i but more often than not people ask if I have an Instagram people like sharing things you know if they're building up their Instagram but but yeah I do I think I've left somewhere on on one of my you know in your automated meals when people buy things I think something says you know you can hashtag been like fuzzy lugs I think if I haven't I'll have to I'll have to do it but but I don't tend to and they just do it if people have a following on Instagram they need to make content for Instagram so they put things up so yeah and Christina yes sorry I can't check out people's people shops today but if you want to come in to cram Duffy's felting friends on Facebook we have a thread where where you can post up and I go through people's shops in in order when I get there when I get the time and I will have to do some more of that I'll do some horror shops but you'll see it should be print pinned to the pin to the top if you join Pam Duffy's felting friends and then I will have a look at your shop and a Wendy's in Nevada cool Google just live in a tiny town you don't have anything close shameless I know in America agility is pretty big there should be things but yeah but you don't want to head

I'm still up so that's that's good enough my entire computer is free but thank you guys for letting me know okay if you search for Pam Duffy dog training without equipment then there's some stuff there's some videos there okay and my computer is totally phrased but it still seems to about a live stream I'm not sure if I'll bail to stop live stream so we might okay so we might be here for all mate yeah which doesn't mean I won't bill to show you much more on my stats if it doesn't unfreeze honor and I can't scroll the track I can just see the chat running so if anyone said anything that I

like if I can't leave none of you can leave I'll be me cooking my dinner scene if you'll want to join him for the oh I can't this has been such a pain how many legs dreams in a row have I had a nightmare on and then I did 20 18 entire year all of them perfect ish 2019 all right I think I've had like two streams that weren't a nightmare and now that I'm literally staring at a blank screen that has your the chat bar is on and it seems to be scrolling but nothing else is happening seriously and I don't know if Google Google thinks it's still there right ah seriously annoying and you know it guys entertain me let me know what's been happening with you days because I don't even know how about stop this broadcast and that would just be too weird and a little bit oh thank you so much I'm glad you enjoyed that they are a good fun it's something totally different and for me I think wives it's it's a way it's a way to connect with everybody I've got to know so many you so much better through through lives like putting a video up is good fun and I can chat in the comments and stuff but I just lights are so immediate and you know we're able to talk to each other and yeah I enjoy watching I enjoy watching smaller creators lives I don't know if the rest of you have watched you get some some big people that have like a million subscribers and I chat just go do wait then that it might as well have been a video like they can see a little bit of the chat but there's nothing you know catch the odd word or people have to what's the word super chat people have to actually get month pay money for their their chat to show up because everything's going so so fast so yeah I feel with a big the big creators you don't get the same feel but with with those little guys it's I think it's kind of cool because you can talk to people so I do I like sleeping people to chat so little bed play you get on and do your live stream and yeah you worry that no one had turn up and probably they went to start with right and I had my my first live stream was terrible I held my phone up I spoke out at a million miles an hour and I ran away and no one turned up my second one I I had something planned to talk about I can't remember so long ago but I had something planned and so I did that and someone turned up and I got such great and I had no idea how to do with the chair it was hilarious but yeah I totally freaked out but then I did then I did none for another six months because I totally freaked out but then at the beginning of 2018 I decided to just totally do them try and do it regular this is where I did this for a clocks and they evening tape thing my computer's still not untrue sister good knowing that's where I picked this for a clock and Sunday evening thing and I just said okay I'll plan I've done late do shop reviews going through Pinterest doing my how much money SLO makes and I think we did just just get sort of that covered and but anyway so I decided if I just keep doing it I tell people when I'm doing it but I have something planned I'd like today I have something planned and then I have I can talk about things and then if people come then I can chat to them and I think the first few times I was mainly talking to myself and occasionally someone came in and chatted and they could reply back and then it's just built up and built up until we have this wonderful community that you guys are there chatting I've got to check the check because I got to remember I can't scroll back on it and Wendy told I don't know I didn't his comment just disappeared your something about your hobby okay and who's that let's razani was pleasantly surprised with a neat see customers comment she brought one of my supplies and gave me a great review fantastic race Andy that's great making a do do a page of awesome things and write down write down because it's good to see them a little bird yeah it is great to talk to people and those front a community of people who go around life dreams and just like hanging out I've got a talks with check quickly because I can't get it back once it's gone yeah my doing a little bit do it and and make their own support yeah yeah there is there is people that would love just to see you like it's just nice to chat to people a little bit it helps to have regular dates absolutely and you know you and they you look forward to them oh that's lovely it's it's nice to see the notifications pop up that your life thank you so much but yeah that that is sort of for me that is the point just schedule and a regular date a regular day and then people even though I've had some disaster I've had some proper disasters people still know to look out at about this time so even though my streams have been horrific lately people have still been able to jump about and find where the stream is and join in and everyone's supporting everyone else and talking to everyone else which is really cool and resigning yeah it is it is great when when good reviews happen you'll be getting more of them they see it your works awesome and totally unique so yeah people will be like in it oh little bird says Magdalena thank you that really makes you my lovely again she's we have we have this wonderful community of blank small YouTube people I know Michael England doesn't have a channel she's not making videos but I feel she's practice part of this community as much as everyone else and it's lovely when you go on someone else's life and you see people you know from another you know and then what actually happens is everybody starts chatting to everybody else because we know each other from other people's people's lives so the the actual chat can be going and that's great friend that's lovely oh no Wendy set her alarm to watch and then fell asleep oh but you're here now and in my wonderful phrasing stream I'm I'm glad it's I'm glad at least the visuals working I don't know how I'm kind of help to stop the stream and this is gonna be the way this one lane stack it's stuck in the twilight zone of the stream and you guys will just have to check in like every so often you do just be certain once you meet my dinner or something no no we're not doing a 24 hour a stream that's that's weird oh when do you call your mom every morning so sometimes you get here late that's really that's really nice of you I bet your mom appreciates it don't don't tell my mom I call her every week I don't talk I'm I'm such a hermit I don't talk to anyone every day well the dogs but yeah I talk to the dogs everyday poppins give me that look I would show you but I'm afraid if I pick up the camera if I pick up but if I touch anything everything oh just oh just died on me and Wendy you did make it yes I gathered that and that you don't have automatic chat that just says what you would have thought of saying you know I was guessing by the chat but glad to see you here I know because you you've missed a few so I've been taking the register and you've got some check mark bad marks like entered your name no I I appreciate all you guys coming here and hanging out with me especially especially putting up with these disasters it's yeah technology is a pain that's how how can my computer still be frozen oh I can I can wiggle the window that says Google Hangouts not responding I can we call that so I don't think it's my computer this phrasing I think Google has literally died or Google for me yeah oh no I clicked something in there I can't see anything right okay right get the chat back Gilligan there we go I can still pop up the chat that's this is such a pain right I need some people who know about technological stuff hate to stop it I don't want to share my screen where are we where are we Megan did the same forced myself up and wanting the gays I said I could make the time a different time it doesn't have to be four o'clock my time but every time I've asked everyone said this is a cool time if you want different times I have thought about doing another felt along like on a Wednesday evening which would be Wednesday afternoon for you guys because I've still got I think it's down there somewhere I've still got the Aldi kit of the Fox if anyone wants to do it felt along with Fox I haven't done that yet so so we'll see Wendy eventually just power down the computer I think that is what I'm going to have to do I wonder if I can shut things down from I'm gonna try try something Google Chrome is not responding do you think do you think I don't rate I'm not gonna well yeah I don't want to close it down because I don't know if it'll close everything else so we're just gonna we're just gonna wait here yeah I think I've done bad they don't bleep know something there are some things happened at the chats all all faded but I can still see it okay um oh I can I've missed a later chat do you have a laptop webcam word you have fancy tech and this is just my laptop well it's not my laptop this is a webcam it's a Logitech c920 and believe yeah if I had more fancy take about beaver more difficult you can buy really expensive things to connect up your DSLR camera to be a webcam but I'm finding this is okay oh no I've missed some more chat from Wendy great read some more a little bit when you do a live does it automatically upload to your channel as a public video and it does when you set it up that way there's there's ways you have to go in and set it up what I would do of what I did for the first few times when you set up a live set it up as a private video so that nobody can see it and then you can test all the settings and it should load it up live and you can make sure that everything's okay that's the way I did it my doing there sounds like my computer needs serviced if it keeps freezing it's generally my computer has been perfect the problems before this week is something with OBS stream labs I have no idea what's happened today but I think it's Google Mike my computer itself is fine but Google seems to be playing up because I can open anything else I can do everything else but just Google itself seems to have crashed is possibly because I've got two windows of Chrome with many tabs open and we're running hangouts so yeah I'll making this time is good you have a new baby who's hungry okay congratulations new baby mum saying that's lovely Wendy so obviously I've missed something more sorry I can't squared the chat has fruit the chat has frozen but it's still moving I can't do anything with it yeah little bird Blythe found an LD be a way felt panda in a charity shop but didn't buy SF so much stuff talk to me thank you yeah I know that there's only so many things you can have I keep looking at different things and but yeah there's only so many you can do when windy with a name was best friends with her mum – she was amazing Oh Wendy that's lovely – Leena have Daniel sponsor sponsor you for a camera I'm assuming that's for little little Blair Heath um I've got quite a lot of cameras now actually that's if you start doing YouTube you start gathering technology little bit yeah the camera this this webcam I got this because it was what Nick Newman was using he's a youtuber if you don't know and I just thought the quality looked really good when I'm filming regular videos I've got a decent camera and the half year reluctance is finding somewhere to film that looks ok in the background yeah I I know that feeling I I have little what I've done I cut because this is a PC not a laptop so I can't just take it anywhere I want but my normal filming area is I have a loft bed and I stuck some photography backdrop behind it and I have my camera in front of me so it's like literally might be about a 4-foot area underneath the bed that are just used for filming I've clipped on late cheap lights and things so that would be cool Magdelena you need to close all the folders that actually freeze these other apps I know I'm just scared because when I go to close it down I don't know if that will shut down Google Hangouts as well I don't want to just put I will do that when I'm when I'm lucky enough I'll try and close all of that down and then hopefully it'll hopefully it'll still it won't kill the broadcast in a bad way it will just stop it I don't know I might have to come back in then you might have like 20 minutes of dead space dead air or something I don't know okay Megan has to run to get ready for work bye okay right good to see you and bye i tinker is late going to start at the beginning nurse
