WPTV Blog: Post video interviews from various YouTube channels of community members

At Mods Team we are all working hard on editing, reviewing and posting the content from various WordCamps and WordPress Related Events. Making a video interviews for WPTV is a really great idea by @jwparky, thank you John for all your help and effort you put in 😉 and to all the people showing up in our SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. #wptv channel. In any case, it takes a lot of time and for now only John is interested in making it real (of course with our support 😀).

I have this idea, started in our todays mod chat meeting, about searching for the already existent content and people in the community who already producing great video interviews, there are already several.

Why just not take all the great video content, already produced by people from the community, and make our WPTV blog a central platform of all the videos about WordPress? (Making sure they meets your video guidelines.)

We can follow some channels with our YouTube account and stay up to date on all the new materials coming online.

Some channels to consider (in my opinion):

I think reposting only the videos from WPTV, hand picked by us, is not enough, and we can take more advantage of the WPTV blog, which was completely dormant since some years, and transform it in a wider platform.

Let’s bring all the forces together and everybody wins 😉 📺

Please, I need your feedback on this idea
