WOW, what an honor and what fun. Recently I got to appear on Rogers Cable 20 out of Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario area, on the show ‘daytime’. Susan Cook-Scheerer, one of the hosts of the show interviewed me.
The show airs LIVE at noon and then re-air at 3, 6 & 11. We were asked to be there by 11:30. When we got there we were warmly greeted at the door by someone that works behind the scenes. The room is a smaller room. I say this because when you watch the show on TV you think it’s a huge room. People were very friendly there and I got to check a paper to make sure everything was spelled correctly. I was told I was the third segment, so I got to watch how things were done. This was fun for me since I have a B.A. in video production.
Then it came my turn. My tummy was churning, my head kept saying “I’m really on tv? this is nuts.” Susan Cook-Scheerer was very friendly and helped me relax before we went on air. Once the camera was on I focused on her and tried to convince myself that the camera wasn’t on.
Susan Cook-Scheerer was very knowledgeable about my blog and about Squinkies which was the reason I was in the New York Times in the first place and why I was able to be on their show. I was allowed to share some of the products I’ve reviewed before on my blog. I brought in some monster pillows from Lemonpie handmades, a Lennah Designs necklace, and Bella the Butterfly from Freckles Crafts. It was cool to watch the show afterwords and see all the close-ups of the items. It was hard to pick out just a few to share on tv, but I picked Lemonpie and Lennah Designs, one because I LOVE the product and two because I wanted to support Canadian companies. Freckles Crafts I picked because Rebecca has been a major support for me, she has been there to encourage me and has even just been an “ear” to talk to.
I loved doing this and I might, just might get to do it again. Susan Cook-Scheerer said she would love to have me back to do a live review of items. I mentioned that maybe I could even do a giveaway of the items I review kind of like my blog and she was excited for that. (we’ll just have to wait and see how things go for all of us)
Thank you Rogers Cable 20 and Susan Cook-Scheerer. This totally rocked.
