A Reminder

Last night was a good reminder to not just give up. So much of my failure as a streamer (and in life in general) is because I get discouraged and simply don’t try. I had issues with OBS then issues with audio. I almost canceled stream yet again as a result. I wanted to in…

Seriously Considering

The recent addition of name changing has a lot of streamers thinking about their futures with Twitch. I for one have been contemplating this for awhile but this has really pushed it to the forefront of my mind. If you are curious here are my options for moving forward and what I feel are the…

Update

I returned from TwitchCon in a really positive place, wanting to make positive changes. I felt fired up and was clearly on a manic high for awhile. Then I got sick, then I missed an important deadline, then I just went right back into my old habits. My habits of drinking too much. My habits…

Bringing Back the FaceCam (slowly)

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…

TwitchCon: Streamers to check out

Changes for the Future

As I have been talking about, TwitchCon gave me a lot to think about. As a result there are some changes I am making. I am doing list format for no other reason than I like lists. Some of these will be specific to Twitch, some to writing, some to my blog, some to myself…

TwitchCon Day Three & Wrap Up

So I will acknowledge that my attempts to do nightly updates for TwitchCon was pretty much a failure. I underestimated how tired I would be, and how much I would have on my mind each night. Even at this moment in time I still have a large amount floating around, and have a lot to organize.…

TwitchCon: Day Two

Sadly this post will not be very long. I have a lot I want to say, today I went to some rather heavy panels. That being said I am also pretty drained physically and emotionally, and want to give my thoughts the time they deserve. The first panel was one on mental health and streaming.…

TwitchCon: Day One

We arrived, got rest, and then seized the day. Well… I mostly seized the day. I am not ashamed to admit I had some difficulty with the con at first. TwitchCon is not my first, but it doesn’t matter how many cons I go to, they set off my anxiety. I was very surprised at…

TwitchCon: The Journey To

We left on our journey to TwitchCon a few days early. On the way we planned on stopping to see my grandmother. Those that know me know that my family makes me nervous (like most other humans). I greatly enjoy seeing my family, yet always end up stressing myself out too much before I have…
