The need for Face Cam is something I acknowledged long ago. It really does help the interaction, help people to enjoy your reactions, and just helps your stream all around. The problem is the difference between knowing I want/should use Face Cam and actually being able to. More often than not the idea of using the cam gives me anxiety and even full panic attacks. It’s so much easier to hide behind my computer, instead of putting myself out there to that next degree. I have thought about this problem, struggled with it, and came to the same conclusion I came to long ago. I need to stream with Face Cam.
I am slowly bringing it back. I say slowly because there will be times where I am just unable to handle it. I am not going to force it every day right out of the gate. I won’t allow myself too many excuses/reasons for not using Face Cam, but every once in awhile there might be a need to turn it off.
My goal is to be comfortable using it every stream (other than extremely rare occasions) by the end of the year. I also hope to use it more often than not during this month, as Face Cam helps a great deal with horror games. I also don’t want to overwhelm myself. I don’t want to force myself to use it every time, knowing how uncomfortable I am, then end up two months from now with it turned off all the time.
I hope that you are looking forward to my using Face Cam again, I also hope you will be patient with me as I get myself there bit by bit.
