WOYWW: Shock Treatment

Hello friends! I hate to admit it but my craft area is a disaster, even my friend Kathy O. (not to be confused with Kathy J of the Marden’s Haul) said she hadn’t seen my craft room this trashed before. Well, I let Kathy see my trashed room, what’s a couple thousand more people right, here it is just in time for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday:

woyww_1_15_14

Normally I would not let a sole see my studio in this state but I had a lot to do and no time to tidy when she came over to help me film Ask A Crafter today. To say I lost track of time would be an understatement, we always lose track of time especially when we are crafting or talking about crafting (or drinking tea and flipping through magazines about crafting) and today was no exception, we got pages and pages of questions (which we answered all of them) and pages of comments (I only picked a few to read) and we filmed about 2 and a half hours of footage! What do I do? I don’t want to cut out any questions but asking people to watch 2 plus hours of video to hear their question is a lot. Any Β suggestions? My husband thinks I should pick 10 questions and call it good but I feel bad leaving anyone out. Hubby is also amazed that anyone watches the 45 minute shows LOL! Β Maybe I should use a stopwatch and limit my answers to a minute, I could give my co-host a taser and they could shock me if I go over LOL! Hey, then I might not have to curl my hair hahaha! I am getting ready to slap the segments together and upload my video now, I think I will put it in two parts to make uploading more manageable. Also I think I might look into the shock treatment idea, it would be an incentive plus more people might want to co-host with me if they know they can zap me if I get long winded. So the question is for those of you who WATCH Ask a Crafter should I limit my questions, set a time limit for my responses or keep it as-is and let it run as long as it goes? I really want to know! Thanks for your input and Happy Crafting!

  6. Okay, here is my two cents. I say don’t cut because we can always save it to our favorites and watch later, but I tend to sit and watch the 45 minutes all the way through so what is 15 more minutes. You share such good information and you are so funny. But whatever you decide I will still watch.

  8. I would watch your videos no matter how long they are! Much better than anything on tv! Having said that, do whatever is best for you. If uploading the videos is a hassle, maybe split them into two parts? It may have reached the point where you have to pick and choose questions to respond to. I know you hate to do that, but then again you can’t spend 4 hours answering questions! I guess my only point is that the length of your videos doesn’t bother me. I really enjoy them!

  10. I do not mind the 45 min videos at all πŸ™‚ Personally I do not mind the long videos but if you feel they are too long divide them up into smaller segments and in the description put whose questions you answered in that particular video. Hopefully that makes sense. Or another way is pick a certain amount of questions for the video and answer the others on your blog. That way no one is left out πŸ™‚ Just don’t burn yourself out! I know that it can be done easily ( know from experience).

  55. Some suggestions: First, don’t limit your answers. No one wants a half-answered question. On the other hand, there may be questions that a particular viewer isn’t interested in. Perhaps they already know the answer or they don’t do that craft. (For me, it’s generally because I don’t do that craft, not that I already know the answer.) When there’s a question I’m not interested in, I fast forward through that answer. When your assistant looks at her paper, that generally means a new question is about to begin. What might be helpful is if you could group questions. Have all the knitting and crocheting questions together, watercolor questions together, etc. Maybe you could even hold up a sign letting us know what the category is. That would be helpful to viewers and wouldn’t take a huge investment of time on your part. Thanks for all your helpful tips!

    My suggestion is to upload it in two or three segments/parts. That is the best of both worlds. Those who don’t have time to watch don’t have to..others who do will be able too.

    And realize that those of us who have a craft addiction can’t get enough of your channel. So–MORE IS ALWAYS better!! There is no such thing as too long of a video for us. We pause the video or stop it and return to it as we can. That’s what the pause stop button is for…LOL.

No real teaching happens. You are the breath of fresh air, so my vote is ‘do not change, PLEASE’.

    As for husbands suggestion–mine would make the same one. Men have the easy answers–wanna bet they invented the Staples ‘easy button?’. I love my husband but I don’t always take his advice, because it is often geared to his benefit–i.e. not having a wife with a dilemma which makes life easier FOR HIM. HA!

Thank you so much for sharing your vast wealth of knowledge. πŸ™‚

  89. I love Ask a Crafter – and the length of time is not a factor. Like someone else pointed out, it’s better than tv and I’m learning so much from you. I remember the episode where you talked about meeting up with one of your viewers and being a little concerned about the “stalker factor” – and I thought, how lucky that viewer was to actually get to spend some “real” time with you. Your videos are so fun and informative AND presented in such a friendly atmosphere – I feel like you are a friend – and I love spending time with you (no time limits, please!). You inspire us all.

  90. I would hope no one would fret by not hearing their question answered and if they were I would point out how unrealistic they are. Do what you need to do to keep you happy so you keep on keeping on! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week. Vickie #99

  92. Love Ask A Crafter just as it is! Please don’t shorten it. Its my
    Favorite online treat of the week! I watch on my new tablet while I take a lunch break (self employed) with my iPhone taking notes so that I know what to shop for or how to do it The Frugal Crafter way. It’s fine broken into shorter videos also. Just please don’t stop all the great info!

  93. i love the show, if its a question that I am not particularly interested in then I can fast forward, though 9 times out of 10 I just play your show all the way through on my net book whilst I am in the craft room.

    As to your desk, its no worse than many of us!! πŸ™‚

  94. You are so delightful I’d hate to see any limits on whatever you want to talk about. I’d watch 2 hours (maybe in segments). Love, love, love your enthusiasm and willingness to let us in on all of your ideas, methods, and even a bit of your personal life. I feel as if we are friends. P.S. I think you should try publishing your book about crafting again. You are amazing and very popular.

  96. Well, if you want to appear professional and gain more hits/viewers then do both – set a time limit AND only use 7-11 Q&A within that time limit ( say 20-30 minutes). Also edit, edit, edit – if you have the technical resources.

    Would love for you to enter my GIVEAWAY when you have a moment or 2 – ends Jan 20, 2014.

  98. I agree with the first post here – do whatever you feel to be right, but don’t get burned out or fed up with making them.
    Thank you!

  99. I love your videos whether they are answering any questions or not. You could answer a few questions a couple of times a week (maybe do shorter but more videos but record them all at once – Not sure how you work it) But I don’t want to see you get burnt out either. Do what you feel is necessary. Feel like you are my go to for crafting ???? and answers or how to videos.

    Thank you for all that you do.

  100. I like the way it is. Answer them all, take all the time needed for precise answers, I learn so much from what others ask and your answers. Stuff I didn’t even think I needed to know. If people want they can fast forward to next question, or watch in increments as allowed by their schedules, I don’t mind sitting for hour or hour and half to watch you, but then again I am retired. But I do hit pause quite often to get up and do a chore here or a chore there so I am learning and cleaning at same time. Works for me.

  101. How about this idea? You choose a time limit and you answer as many questions as that amount of time allows. Then you use any left over unanswered questions for the next video.
