Summary for the week ending Mar 25, 2018

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!

Rigaroga Twitch Who watches the watchers?

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.

Rigaroga Twitch Path to Affiliate

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!

Rigaroga Twitch Path to Partner

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!

Casual Friday with a clicker for who knows how long! Until the power goes out? Until I want to use my computer for something else? Last time, I made just shy of 8 hours. Can I make it to 12 hours? Yay! Huzzah!

Summary for the week ending Mar 18, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending March 18th, 2018.

This weekend was set to be quite busy for live streaming actual play. The Pathfinder game was a bust, but I was able to play another session of D&D Spelljammer and the first session of Warhammer 40k Roleplay Deathwatch this weekend. Be sure to check those playlists out for past sessions and plan on coming to the next ones!

In possibly devastating personal news, I learned this week that the place I have been living will be put on the market. In worse news, I learned that there may already be an offer, and I’ll have to move out by the end of April. Frankly, I’m kinda screwed. I don’t know how this will work out for me, but it may mean a lot of awful things for me and the cats, as I’ve currently nowhere to go and no money to get there. I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen.

I could really use some support from Patrons to help out during this time, even just $1, each month, so if you can spare anything that would be amazing. You can also subscribe to Odd Order anthologies, over on Bandcamp. Another way to offer support is through the anonymous, nonprofit Liberapay.
