Investing time in my Channel

As my summer vacations start, I suddenly find myself with the opportunity to actually invest time and energy into improving and developing my channel on Twitch. While watching other people’s streams I see so many great examples of communities and interactions that I really look forward to having the time to spend time on developing my own. When I talk […]

More than just streaming…..

Well, I am just coming to the end of a two week break from work and looking back on what I have achieved, I am somewhat disappointed that I haven’t actually streamed more than what I usually do. You would have thought, without the time sink of work, I would be able to complete everything that needs to be engaged with in ‘normal’ life in the mornings and then stream for the majority of the afternoons and evenings. However, if you have been following my Twitch Channel, you will be aware that this has not been the case. Why? Well when it comes to streaming I always seem to have a lot more other things to do about from the actual act of streaming…

My perfect day …

During my time off work a enjoyed some really good session streaming and as I enjoyed the time with my viewers, someone mentioned about being a full time streamer! Now, as you might be aware, I actually have a full time job, my own radio station, write for two blogs and stream on Twitch, so life is understandably really very busy. As I walked for my usual morning coffee this morning, it got me thinking about what my perfect day would be like if I had the time, money and motivation to do everything I wanted to do- without the things I had to do to to pay the bills – e.g. work. So what follows in this waffle is what I would class as my perfect working day…

The Campaign begins…

So there I was, quietly chatting to a couple of other streamers when the topic of Dungeons and Dragons came up. Now, I grew up playing this game, way before the internet was even available and I must say I enjoyed each and every game and campaign which I created or played in. Despite all this I think with hindsight, I was a bit keen to announce that I would DM (Dungeon Master) the campaign. Of course, my fellow streamers gladly acknowledged my offer to lead the campaign and so started several long hours both during the day and late into the night until the first session occurred. What happened will probably go down in history – but just in case history missed it, I recorded the whole session and uploaded it to Youtube…

The Trouble with Twitch

I’m becoming very concerned about something. I spend much of my time online and I get this feeling that content, customer service and ultimately people are ceasing to become important being completely replaced with automation, viewing figures and money. I’m not one to rant in my blog posts but I am one to tackle and engage with issues which I think are important. The issue which I am becoming concerned with is that I don’t think that Twitch cares any more…

Streaming at my age!

Let’s have a break from the ‘My weird life’ series and have a quick blog about something which I have been thinking about for a while. I know that age is just a number and that you are as young as your feel, but I sometimes do feel that I was born in the wrong era! Why? well many of the things to do with technology I wish had been available when I was a lot younger and, if this had been the case, maybe what I would be doing in life would be slightly different now. I wrote a blog post on my ‘professional site‘ some time ago titles, I have a confession! It was a popular ‘waffle’ mainly because of the title rather than the content I think. One part of the content of the post was my confession about being a streamer and I wanted to share with you all the positives and negatives of streaming…at my age!

Can I hit these?

On my professional work site, every year I share my targets for improvement for the following year. Don’t worry, they do not include the usual diet and gym comments but focus more on my academic achievements and research commitments. Since this site is getting re-invigorated I thought it would be a good idea to set and share my targets for my streaming, Youtube and radio exploits here so you can get some idea of where I am going with things. Of course, it also gives you the opportunity to come back in a year’s time and have a gloat at what I haven’t achieved! So the big question is….can I hit these targets!
