Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending March 25th, 2018.
After last week, I’ve been in a bit of a tizzy and funk over having suddenly learned I needed to move house in a month, so I didn’t get posts scheduled to the blog for every day as I would have done normally. However …
This weekend, on Saturday, in the middle of a live stream, I reached an average of 3 viewers over the last 30 days. Finally! Huzzah!
That was the last goal to complete in order to qualify for Twitch Affiliate. Being an Affiliate means people can subscribe and send cheers on Twitch to help support the stream, as well as a few other cool things. One trade off is that I won’t be able to simultaneously stream to all three of my Twitch, YouTube and Mixer accounts anymore. I feel like focusing my efforts at Twitch, and exploring some extra streams occasionally to the others, is the way to go.
Currently, the “Get Started” button goes to a settings page with no useful options or information, so I suspect that something got hung up or there’s a manual flip required. But, I’ve completed Path to Affiliate!
I’ve got a long way to go to reach Partner, but the only thing I need are viewers, like you!
There’s two things that changed for me recently, that I have to credit for this rise in viewership for my streams. I’ve been streaming for several years, without much change in how many people watched my streams. The first thing that changed is that I started to stream live actual play sessions of tabletop roleplaying games: D&D Spelljammer and Warhammer 40k Deathwatch so far, and I’d love to do more! Then other thing that changed is that I’ve become a member of the Nomads, a group of streamers and esports players, who have been very supportive as a community, so you should check them out!
