When I started streaming last year, I had absolutely no idea what I was letting myself in for. I’ve always found the concept of watching other people playing games live pretty cool, but never imagined myself getting involved in it.
But I’m glad I did, because I have had some tremendous fun doing it. I’ve even invested in it, dropping £100 on a Blue Yeti microphone (the boom stand is next). What makes it greater is knowing that there are those of you who not only enjoy the streams, but those of you who come back every time and spend the evening with me, indulging and perhaps playing me in some Chaos Reborn, or hearing me crap myself in some horror game. So to my followers, a big thank you for your support.
Almost 100 followers too! That’s madness. I’ve already promised a big 100 follower stream, which you guys can pick what game you want me to play. So #letsmakeit100!
Looking forward, I’d like to be moving away from Chaos Reborn on Mondays and perhaps turning it into Turn Based Strategy night of some kind, which still allows for you to join me playing because I think that is a vital part of any stream – participation as well as communication. That’s not to say I will never play Chaos Reborn again in a stream, because let’s face it, it’s the game that got me here in the first place, and the game that got a great community going.
I’m also looking to put up a message board of some kind here on the website, for people to leave their notes and comments about the stream. News on that later. Oh, and the website still needs a good tidy up, that’s just ongoing, mundane stuff.
