A G+ Community Hangout on Friday!

posted in: blogger | 14

I have the itch to try a hangout again. Here’s how we’ll try it this time:

  • If you join the Convivial Home community on G+, you’ll receive the invitation and be able to participate or view the recording after the fact.

  • I will be on video, but you can choose to be on video or audio or neither. There is a chat window as well for conversations during the video.

  • I’ll show you examples of my latest productivity hack: an index card as a daily list. It’s not digital, but it’s been working for me for three weeks now.

To invite people to a private G+ community, I need you in either my Simply Convivial circle or I need your email address. So, if you’d like to join (and haven’t already), leave a comment here with your email address (it won’t display, but I’ll see it in my admin panel) or +1 or comment on a post on G+ and I’ll add you to the circle that gets an invitation.

Starting today, I will also be sending an invitation to the group to new email subscribers!

I think it will be fun.

    I’m interested, that sounds like fun! What time are you thinking?

      It occurs to me that you probably need my gmail address… I haven’t done anything with Google+ yet, but I think I at least have an account.

        It’ll be at 9:30am Pacific time, because my mom will be taking my 6yo & 3yo out at that time, so the house will be much quieter. :)

        You do have to have registered on G+; when I tried inviting you, it said you weren’t on G+.

          OK – I thought I had set it up, but because I didn’t actually input any information, it didn’t take. It should work now. Sorry about that!

          I should be able to make that work. I’m looking forward to it!

          Well, I’m not going to be able to do it after all. I have an errand that I tried to do today but didn’t have all the paperwork required… so now I have to do the hour drive each way again tomorrow. I am so not thrilled about having to do this, and I’m sorry to miss out on the Google+ hangout too.

    I’m interested in viewing the recording after the fact. Will just my email work? Thanks.

      I can’t invite you, because it says you’re not on G+. However, I am hoping to figure out how to get the recording onto YouTube or public on Google afterward, so I’ll let you know when it’s available. :)

    Oops- I forgot to check on the time and I missed it. Is there a way to watch afterwards?

    Thanks so much for posting this! I was out of town, away from connection, on Friday.

    Since beginning our HS journey last month, I’ve noticed that the nights that I list the things that I need to accomplish for the next day, I tend to accomplish much more. I do list mine electronically, using the simple Reminders App on my iPhone. But I like seeing that you list the HS things that have to be done for the day, as well. (My list is primarily things TBD outside of school (homekeeping & errands.) So I think I might switch to your set up.

    Here’s my question, on your homekeeping side of the chart, do morning, afternoon, evening have a meaning based on the day of the week?

    Thanks again for all of your work here. You are encouraging and a great help.

      Yes, I started adding the school things to my list because I was starting to unconsciously prioritize the other tasks over taking the time we need for school. So, that column is my “work/job” column – educating my children. :) I need that extra nudge that it “counts.”

      Right now, the morning/afternoon/evening routines I’m working on are small daily tasks. Once I have those habits down, then ideally I do have a day-of-the-week task to stay on top of things, but right now I’m still focusing on a few daily habits. I envision that side of the chart evolving, based on what I’m focusing on and the house’s status.

      There are also a few things I forgot to mention in that video, and I learned quite a bit in the process of making it, so I’ll probably try another version here soon. :)
