While streaming I have a command ‘!created’ which allows people to know when they first started with their Twitch account. In about April, I think, I will have been on the platform for 10 years. Similarly, on YouTube, I recently shared a video that I made 10 years ago! However, I am still not where I want to be with my content creation. So I decided I need to do something about it. It’s time to attend university!
Author’s Note: I really like that @streamlabs are running this course but I am disappointed that they are using it to promote their own platform. In order to get to the next section, I need to stream 5 hours using their multi-stream platform. Are they running this course for themselves or the content creators?
Which course am I attending?
I once saw a course on Facebook by the ‘infamous’ blue-haired ninja about streaming. I was very tempted to complete it but time and money weren’t the best back then.
However, I received an email from @streamlabs inviting me to join their streaming university. I did check with some other streamers and they had not received a similar email so I either signed up for it unknowingly or they have seen my streams and know I need help.
I have listened and read the first section and thought I would give it a go and record my progress on this blog. I have done this before I know, but nothing really changed from it, so second attempt here we go!
I am not sure how this differs from my motivation. I do recognise that I am a very different sort of streamer and I am not actually prepared to change this. I don’t swear, I am old and I don’t drink alcohol. I also know that I am not the best at the games but I am working on this. It’s taking me a while to work out which games I enjoy and these definitely come into the MMO type.
I know I have changed over the past 10 years and I do hope this is for the better. I don’t have the abundance of self-confidence that other people have but I am working on this and I need to work on not letting that show on the streams. I do want to come across as super positive and be the sort of streamer that people watch because of the person rather than the game.
That was a little harder than I thought. I have had to do a lot of thinking while writing this which I am assuming is a good thing. Next on the list is to look at goals, but that is going to be the next blog post. I’ve captured it on Asana and it will appear within the next weeks or so.
Thank you for accompanying me on this journey, you are a great travelling companion!
