Something new for Book Club Mom – Book Talk on YouTube!

Hi Everyone,

I’m trying something new, a supplement to this blog, because it’s never good to get too comfortable with the status quo, right?

So today I launched a YouTube channel and posted my first bookish video. I’ll be posting once a week and hope you’ll take a look here:

It’s a little longer than what I hope to post in the future, so if you get bored, remember that I’ll be cutting my next post by a minute or two!

I hope you’ll consider subscribing to my channel!

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

      1. I recorded myself on my phone video to practice for a book reading once, just to see how long it took to read from Calmer Girls for 5 to 10 minutes. I have to say I’m not a fan of my voice, so if I ever get audio books done I’ll hire someone else! Your voice is fine. 🙂

      2. Hi Jennifer. Well we are our own most critical judges, aren’t we? I did a lot of takes and flubbed a lot of lines, but the last one was as good it was going to get. And I figure that anyone who knows me live already knows what I look like and sound like, so it wasn’t as big a risk as I originally thought. We all have an idea of what we sound like, but it’s never what it actually is! Thank you for reading, watching and listening. Hope you’re having a nice weekend!

  1. You are a natural, Barbara! I would get completely tongue-tied with the camera in my face. Also, your hair is beautiful…it’s so thick! I like this idea! You should do a cooking dinner channel, too. 🙂

    1. Hi Jill! Thank you for these nice comments. I had very long hair up until last year, then I got it all cut off and it has grown back a lot. But I’m getting it cut again next week! As for a cooking dinner channel, well maybe… 😉 Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  2. Barbara, this is lovely and it’s great to see you and you’re a pro at this! Interesting to learn how Gillian is pronounced and about the book … sounds a bit too dark for me! ‘Commonwealth’ has sparked my interest though.

    I’m heading over to subscribe to your channel … look forward to the videos!

    1. Oh, thank you, Tammie. Your posts are so creative, I’m sure you would be great with your own YouTube channel! I’m going to keep blogging, this will be a weekly supplement with different content. Thanks for your support!

    1. Oh, thank you so much. I had been thinking about doing a channel for a long time and was planning to launch it after the holidays, but I had some time last week and so I just went for it. It also helped to have tech savvy teenagers and twenty somethings around to go to for advice! Thanks for your interest, JP!

    1. Thank you, Stephanie. I practiced, A LOT before I did the final take. I also got a lot of technical advice from my kids who are much more savvy with YouTube and social media. Stay tuned!

Tell me what you're thinking!
