I’m Live! Right Now: Free blogTV eBook


This eBook is, first and foremost, a guide for beginner broadcasters who want to understand the numerous features of blogTV. It is written simply, by a daily user of the site, so you won’t find any technical mumbo jumbo here. I am not employed by blogTV, and blogTV did not have any editorial control over the content here. These observations are drawn from my own experiences as I found my way around the site.

This eBook will also help some experienced broadcasters who may be searching for additional show ideas, or promotional help. After I explain how to use some of the technical features of the site, I will share with you the techniques I and other popular broadcasters used to get the word out about our shows.

I’ve included as many screenshots and examples as necessary to help you along with each feature, but you may still have questions. My contact information is listed at the front and back of this eBook, and you are free to contact me with any questions that may arise while you are getting started.

You may be a little nervous the first time you click that Start Broadcasting button. I know I was, but being armed with all of the information contained within these pages, you’ll do a much better job with your early shows than any of us did.

Good luck, and happy broadcasting.
