Living Area with NO TELEVISION

5. Kill your TV.
As I mentioned before, having a TV in your living room often means that your TV becomes the center of the room, and you wind up with a space that’s optimized for watching television, and not much else. Banishing your TV to another room of the house (or getting rid of it entirely) frees up your space for all kinds of creative arrangements. Once you’re no longer worried about everyone being able to see the screen, you may find that you living room contains all sorts of possibilities you never imagined.

Per @Sab_1908: Some Interesting #Periscope’rs to watch!

What is Periscope?

Periscope, is a live streaming video mobile app purchased by Twitter in February of 2015, and it has been the talk of the town since its official launch on March 26. Source: SmallBizTrends.com. To date Periscope has over 10 million users with 2 million active users — which means — if my math is correct 80% are there just consuming content! People are just watching live streams!

You can learn the Periscope ABC’s of how to use Periscope here!

sheesh — I just want to engage

You will quickly notice a lot of people on periscope teaching, sharing tips, giving branding techniques, motivating ‘scopes, inspirational ‘scopes, cooking how to’s, tutorial ‘scopes and whatever else people deem valuable content to spew — and all that is great — truly! But there has to be a balance, sometimes I’m like sheesh — I just want to engage — let’s be virtual friends and shoot the shit — Let’s chat/talk about something other than you trying to teach, inspire, motivate or provide tips on how to’s — mmmkay?

With that being said, here are 10 Periscoper’s that I have enjoyed, and have gotten value from — they have a good balance of tips, learning’s and inspirations; however, they still provide a lot of personality and they haven’t always scoped about teaching me, motivating me, branding, sales, etc.. because I can also find value in talking about life, dating, pop-culture, fashions, good book reads and watching a FUN personality!

Here we go!

Kela Walker

…love her scopes! Kela Walker of Kelaskloset.com is an award winning producer, among her other titles — who seems to have her finger on the happenings in the Big Apple. Kela is fun and full of personality. Kela gives makeup tips at times, she shows her followers around NYC where she resides and gives her thoughts on various events she patronizes (i.e. Dinner en Blanc). Her commentary is cackle worthy…lol Kela is not about that let me teach you something life.. all of the time — that’s just a lane she chooses not to delve in. And I appreciate it!

Tepsi (@Tepsii)

Tepsii

If you don’t smile within the first minute of scoping with Tepsii — there is something definitely wrong with you! Tepsii is a copy writer who is a recent transplant that emigrated from Washington, D.C. to South Africa with her family. She is such a joy to ‘scope with — her effervescent personality, rapport with her family, beautiful smile, and fun laugh is enough to reel you in. Scope with Tepsii and she’ll take you on an exploration of South Africa!

Naptural Nicole aka (@Scoprah) (NapturalNicole) aka Monetizethyself.com

Nicole is about her coins!! She’s an Income strategist, Blogger and Speaker. Now… a lot of Nicole’s scopes are about how you can GET MONEY! She is one of the… teach, tips, how to.. scopers; however, her authenticity and passion jumps through the screen. Not to mention her big beautiful smile.

Nicole has scoped about other things that don’t always teach you about how to do something — e.g. she did a periscope last week where she quit her 6 figure job LIVE on Periscope! BAAUUSEE!! Nicole wanted to pursue her passion of helping others MAKE MORE COINS! And we’re all about that life — so she’s definitely someone to watch!

Online Dating: I Thought This Guy Was Singing To Me When His First Message Was “What’s your phone number?”

…and I promptly responded “7 7 7 Ninety Three Eleven” – Morris Day & The Time.

LMAO!!! I’m not joking… that’s what I said, and his response:

7779311onlinedating

I’ve decided to try the on-line dating thing, and I well… I don’t have any high expectations as you can see; however, I am keeping an open-mind and staying humorous throughout.

I’m only on one site right now, yet people keep telling me to hop on POF. So far, the guys on this particular site are not as substantive as I would like. This one guy’s conservation reminded me of the Atari ‘Pong’ Game.. slow and boring as crap. He had no personality, but we were a 96% match. :-/ I told him about that, because he asked me, and he didn’t respond back…lol I wasn’t mean — I swear, but guys and their egos ugh.

Other virtual crank yankers:
