Zoom Again?

Ready to Zoom
I really enjoyed doing my Zoom presentation on Tuesday (titled “Confidence: A Crossdresser’s Best Friend”). Once I got over my initial stage fright, you could not shut me up and I talked for nearly 40 minutes straight with only a few short breaks to sip water.

It was only my second time using Zoom, so I was still getting acquainted with its operation. As a result, I missed the questions that viewers were texting to me. I apologize for that.

Anyway, I so enjoyed doing the presentation that I am considering doing it as a regular feature in conjunction with this blog – maybe once per month on various topics.

What do you think? Would you be interested in viewing such presentations? If so, what would you like me to talk about?

  1. Go for it!
    What have you got to lose? If it doesn't work out, so what? At least you tried.

    And thank you again for presenting your workshop

  2. Stana, what a great idea and a great addition to have Zoom/video posts on the blog!

  3. I mist your zoom presentation the other night is there a way seeing it?

    I'd love to be part of your Zoom chats, but I don't do Facebook, and for Tuesday's meeting there didn't appear to any form of alternative sign in to Facebook.

    I'M IN! with the proviso that my technology works. It seems that the driver for the laptop camera was lacking on this-your first run.

  6. Yes, please! I was trying to listen while still working but your audio seemed a little low. Could have been an issue on my end. As it grows, maybe you could have a Q & A for people and give your point of view while also serving as moderator for others to participate in the discussion. On a personal level, I am interested in the dynamic with your immediate family and your sister. I thought I've read in the past that you don't generally dress in front of your wife but yet you said you wanted to do so, and go public, this weekend. Has her feelings changed? As a writer myself, and as you know, people are always interested in other people's stories, so if it isn't too personal, I think people would like to her more of your story beyond the feeling comfortable in your skin to go out. Thanks for sharing your story and asking for opinions!

  7. Yes please! You have many wonderful insights that we can all benefit from. And perhaps archive them for those of us on the west coast who can't spend time watching during the work day!

    Yes, yes, and yes. I don't need tutorials on make-up, hair, or clothes. Sharing your life experiences is such a wonderful aspect of this blog for me. From your formative years to the present, your insight on life covers the spectrum from entertainment to touching.

    I definitely agree you should record these for later playback by people in different time zones
