I have finally figured out why Teresa and I are duplicating each other. I realized it’s not a miracle we are thinking the same thing at the same time. I was getting upset by it because we don’t need to duplicate each other. There are millions of patterns and a gazillion ideas.
I was asked by a few viewers yesterday and today about doing something through a private email and again yesterday on the Open Wall of Mikeyssmail. It turns out, the viewer posted the same request on both of our Facebooks. Viewers know Teresa and I are busy and will double up on a request. They are double posting stuff on both sites, in YOUTUBE, EMAIL or FACEBOOK FAN PAGE WALL. I responded and so did Teresa with the exact same thing today.
I had the video already done and I just gave them the link to the video. However, Teresa has also done the same thing on the same day. It’s not a fluke, it’s because we are both trying to keep up with our fan mail at the same time. Simple requests are quick to film and we are filling in a niche.
I get the impatient nature of a viewer who is in the middle of the project that wants a fast answer. I understand because one of us may not have time to respond, however, when we do both have time, it appears we are copying each other then other viewers are writing me telling me to stop copying her and I am getting viewers telling me she is copying me.
As far as I see it now, it’s not Teresa or I’s fault of duplication. We are merely responding to the same questions that are being posted on each site.
I owe Teresa an apology for being upset as I couldn’t figure out why this was happening. Today, I just seen evidence to why this is happening and it makes complete sense without being her or I at fault. She is not to blame, she is merely doing responding to viewers with what they are asking for, the same viewers who have asked me the same question at the same time. We both want the same thing… we want people to learn and grow.
How do we stop this? I’m not sure. We need to be different as having two identical channels don’t work.
We are going to have duplication as fundamental stitches are the same. It’s when we are launching the same tutorials and demonstrations at the same time is when it looks like there’s a war going on when there’s not. We are occassionally going to have the same pattern being demonstrated as open source patterns allow that to be possible.
