Knottie of the Week Update

September 9th, 2009

Last Wednesday, I went live on the air for theknot’s segment called The Knot Live. It airs every Wednesday at noon EST. They have approximately 25 minutes of interviews with people in the wedding industry and then the last five minutes are to interview a knottie.

The requirement is that anyone called "Knottie of the Week" has to post on the messageboards. I post on DIY, mainly. They also require that you have a bio of some sort to drive traffic around their site. I have this website, but I made a quick bio using this page. You can now check out the interview on The Knot Live Episode 12!

Knottie of the Week

September 7th, 2009

On September 2nd, I went live on the air for theknot’s segment called The Knot Live. It airs every Wednesday at noon EST. They have approximately 25 minutes of interviews with people in the wedding industry and then the last five minutes are to interview a knottie.

The requirement is that anyone called "Knottie of the Week" has to post on the messageboards. I post on DIY, mainly. They also require that you have a bio of some sort to drive traffic around their site. I have this website, but I made a quick bio using this page. Here is my The Knot bio.

They contacted me about a week and a half in advance of the episode to do preliminary interviews. They picked pictures from my flickr albums and then scripted questions to ask me based on those pictures. This is the thumbnail work for my interview.

They had a list of approximately 15 questions with to-the-point answers to go through – ALL in 5 minutes. Well, after multiple interviews, it averaged about 6-8 minutes. When the episode went live, they actually had TWO minutes, if that. So we only went through maybe 4 questions and then they cut me off!

They posted the episode here on The Knot Live. Unfortunately, you can’t skip around the video. I am the last couple minutes. They link my bio on an archive ingredient list of the episode.

Here are screenshots of the episode.

So thank you back to the knot team for the nice gift. I’ve been looking for design books and cook books to add to the library!
