Live Interview Event on YouTube

FacXYZ Day Of Alert

This was originally an alert page for the live interview. I’ll leave the original copy, and then follow with a link to the full interview on YouTube.

If you’re free this afternoon and want to break out of your usual routine, I’d love to have you join in on this live interview event.  I’ve done face-to-face interviews, phone interviews, radio interviews – but never before have I done a live Internet interview; so it’ll be something new for me today, as well.

What will make it even more interesting is that I really have no idea what I’ll be asked, and the interview will be about 45 minutes. So I’ll be winging it. Should be exciting, to say the least.

Here’s how you can tune in:

Google+ Event space:

And if you miss it live, it should be up on YouTube afterward; I’ll be sure to post a link.

Wish me luck and see you there!

For those who missed the live event, or who’d like to watch it again, the perma-link is up on YouTube (it’s the same as the live event link):

    What an excellent interview! It was fun watching you in action, and doing your thing. Lots of great wisdom, and thanks for the shout-out too. I think that you need to go live, more often!

    Nice! I just listened. Well done, Erik. It was so fun to see you in action and to hear you versus just “read” you. No fumbling and so articulate. I like the new photos too. Very professional 🙂 Hope this interview brings you some new fans!

      Hi, Diana. Thank you! And I hope it bring YOU some new fans, too. ::wink, wink:: I told you early on after finding your blog that I believe you are mentoring your readers; and, in the sense of “making life easier and better,” you are certainly facilitating there, too.

        My latest post, Erik, is about emerging from blogging cluelessness. Half the time I’m just having fun and really don’t know what I’m doing other than that. Sometimes, that enough, I guess 🙂

          I have your blog up in another window (where it has, sadly, been waiting for me for three days!). Talking about “having fun” and being “clueless,” I still always find it interesting (and, at times, amusing) how perception works where regarding “having it together.” For instance, I’m talking about the same things today as I’ve talked about for decades. But once I had a book out (self-published no less), many people suddenly think, “Oh, wow! He must know what he’s talking about! He has a book!”

          When Karen May, the VP from Google, endorsed the book, people thought, “Wow, this must be an awesome book! Someone really important said so!” But it was still the same book it had been before that fortunate accident.

          Similarly, people perceive me as more … important? professional? … since the new photographs came; but I’m still the same guy! Even as I’m writing this reply, I’m taking a break from writing a post about the reality of what went down behind the scenes of this interview. And I promise – it’s totally not glamorous!

          Perception is a funny thing. We’re all just real people, doing our best out here. I’m totally winging it (and having fun doing that).

            There’s a certain freedom in recognizing – and admitting – that we are all winging it in one way or another. It relieves us of the pressure of being superhuman, a facade that only occurs in fiction and that can generate tons of stress. The best part is that by being a flawed human doing his or her best, others are relieved and empowered to do the same. 🙂

            I want what you just said to be it’s own viral meme. 😀 Right said! Terrific. (And taken to heart here.)

      It did, thanks. I’ve learned to assess that solely by the reactions of others, since I think my own thoughts all the time and live with me, so I’m not all that impressed. But by all outside accounts, people came away challenge with new and/or useful thoughts. A teacher, in my estimation, is not one because of the act of presenting information; a teacher is only a teacher if people learn. Likewise, I’m only a “facilitator” if something is made easier for someone else to understand, think about or move forward with; and it appears that was achieved. Thanks!

    Cool. It is always intriguing to hear the voice you’ve been reading. You Tube interviews are always a good way for people to discover you.

      Hi, Karen. While I’ve grown comfortable hearing my own singing voice played back, and I’m comfortable speaking, I don’t know if I’ll ever not squirm a little at hearing my speaking voice back on a recording. I once read an explanation of this phenomenon, which purported that we don’t like the sound of our own speaking voice because we are conditioned to hearing it as it sounds from inside the acoustics of our own head. Makes sense.

      But I also love to put a face and voice to a name. Thanks for tuning in!

    Well done, Master Tyler. It’s fun to match a face/voice with the writing voice. Best of luck to you 🙂
