Quote from: nbirnes on July 23, 2015, 06:40:23 PMI will read the Skype posts, above, and see what I can add to the discussion. For sure, the interface and options for Skype do differ between PC and Mac, and even between mobile or desktop apps.As for the threads issue, we are thrilled to have our own Bella-Haven thread, right here right now. We roamed freely throughout the forum promoting the Blitz for Art project, but that moment is over.One of the things we all love here at Bellgab is the chance to have focused discussions, and all the other DMDN shows tend to stay in their own threads, as it should be. Worse, we're not even on the DMDN itself, so MV's kind indulgence has been a godsend for us.So now we have to figure out new and improved ways to let people know that we exist as a valid after-Midnight review-and-discuss show. If any of you here in the Bella-Haven thread have the slightest expertise with FaceBook, can you lead us (me) on a good path for promoting?

Quote from: chefist on July 23, 2015, 06:43:33 PMIt goes to branding, Nancy...it is very difficult to get a new brand established, especially one that does not say exactly what it is...I love the name Bella Haven, but it says nothing about being an Art Bell Wrap Up Show...that is something that will have to be taken into serious consideration...
Quote from: nbirnes on July 23, 2015, 06:48:44 PMSee, that's why you're in business. You know what business means and it goes without saying that we mean business. When developing this project, I only wanted to touch on the Bell name, rather than take up the banner completely. Ultimately, we want to dependably be on the air even if Art takes a night off, goddess forbid.
Quote from: chefist on July 23, 2015, 06:54:32 PMI understand completely! it's as nitch as nitch gets! However, you have folks signing up on BellGab everyday now that are brand new to all of this! If you had something with the flavor or "Bella Haven - The Unsanctioned MITD Wrap Up Show!" That might more fit the vibe! Something that says what it is, does not take itself seriously...Yea that may be a bit long of a name, but I give it more to make a point...Fun words could be Unsanctioned, Unofficial, Not Endorsed, Unaffiliated, etc...LOL

He died in my arms and he was comfortable. I loved him so much. I will, absolutely, do a show tonight...so don't worry, but....I may need a few moments from time to time.angels with fur...that's what they are...angels with fur
Quote from: brig on July 23, 2015, 07:03:27 PMI might be WAY off base here, but when I listen to the show, it feels like a bellbabbers after hours bar, rather than a show dedicated to the topic that was just covered on MITD. I LOVE it the way it IS. We have bellgabbers calling in and talking to each other about whatever comes to mind, and the topic changes every 5 seconds lol's. Of course, I support whatever direction her show wants to take, but I DO love it the way it is now. I LOVE hearing bellgabbers just gab.
Quote from: chefist on July 23, 2015, 07:05:48 PMMe too...but I think Nancy wants to be relevant to the new folks too...and there will be new folks stopping in...if all the convo is just insider, then Bella Haven will lose those folks...there has to be a happy median...
Quote from: brig on July 23, 2015, 07:13:16 PMMaybe that happy medium could be done with a certain amount of time dedicated to the show topic, and a certain amount of time dedicated to callers. Dunno, just brain storming.
Quote from: brig on July 23, 2015, 06:48:39 PMDear Nancy, unfortunately, my twitter and Facebook, consist of only a few family, and special friends. As it is, they have informed me that I have spammed them ENOUGH already,especially after the Art blitz...lol's. I hope u will forgive me, but I have been informed by my peeps that they KNOW already. At this point, for my gang, further "promotions" would do more harm than good I'm afraid. I hope that makes sense, and is acceptable to you.....

Quote from: nbirnes on July 23, 2015, 07:23:24 PMHi Brig!You post reminds me of why exactly Bella-Haven must dig in, make the space, get the listeners, and continue to grow. I did make a Bella-Haven page on Facebook, but have no idea how to get people to move it along without bothering our long-suffering family and friends.My own kids have really gotten disgusted with all the promo stuff. Of course we could devote all our non-working hours to customizing FB into separate places for our separate interests the way Google + tried to suggest, but geeeeze.I think we're going to have to re-instigate the Bella-Blitz. But this time for us.

Quote from: chefist on July 23, 2015, 07:30:14 PMNow that's the spirit!
Quote from: brig on July 23, 2015, 07:32:02 PMThe Ideal situation woudl be advertisement on MITD, and honorable mentions on GabCast IMO.
Quote from: chefist on July 23, 2015, 07:36:00 PMJust a thought...

Quote from: nbirnes on July 23, 2015, 07:52:48 PMSee, that's why you get the big bucks. That's a sure-fire cutting-edge and every other masculine weapony I can think of to compliment you with.Now you're cooking with gas!
Quote from: chefist on July 23, 2015, 08:03:12 PMKeep clicking on this new title folks...that way new people know what Bella-Haven is!
