It's been a while since I posted a journal, so I figured I'd do one just for the heck of it. I also kind of wanted to do this because I wanted to talk about something I have been doing which I have really been enjoying lately, which is Live Streaming. As some of you may have known, I have a personal YouTube channel which I enjoy uploading to and maintaining quite a bit. I get a real sense of accomplishment just posting the next part of my current Let's Play and getting good feedback from the few who actually watch it. It just makes me feel like my time spent making that video is paid off so incredibly well by the people actually watching my content.
However, after watching a lot of my favorite Live Streamers and making friendships with the people in these various chats, I got the inspiration to start Live Streaming. I have done a few streams, and I gotta say, There is something about Live Streaming that I like a lot more than doing YouTube. I think it's the fact that you can directly interact with the people watching you stream, and I really like being able to interact with my viewers in a more direct and quicker fashion than simply replying to the comments on YouTube. I have been trying to diverse the games I play on the stream so I am not simply known as the guy who streams _____ game, and I really like seeing the different ways people react to the games I happen to be playing for the week. I will admit it's not as freeing as doing YouTube, since you can upload a video to YouTube whenever you want if you don't have a strict upload schedule. I still like what streaming has to offer me though.
I don't have a large number of people watching me stream, but I still love streaming for the few who turn out. Although, more viewers would be appreciated. If you are interested in watching my stream, Here is the link. I have been trying to stick to a schedule of streaming once a week on the weekends, so be prepared to a stream sometime Saturday or Sunday. I will always tweet out the exact time and date a day in advance so you should follow me on twitter so you can have a heads up. As always, I hope this was a good read for you. I don't know how often I will be posting journals, so I tried to make this one a good one. Until next time my RT Friends!
