Hi, folks! Well, I did it. I stepped outside my comfort zone in an attempt to try something new and change myself “one petal at a time.”
I streamed on Twitch for the first time yesterday. I streamed for about a half an hour the first time, just to try it out. I didn’t have the setting activated to keep video, so that first half hour is gone. But later on, I streamed for two hours, and that video you can see on Twitch. The video is here. I can’t seem to embed it for some reason.
I was so nervous. This is so outside my comfort zone. I am online, playing a game on a platform that could potentially be seen by anyone in the world. I had a lot of fun doing it, but I was actually a bit shaky while I was doing it. I played Fall Guys, which is a fun and frustrating game that I recommend. But I did just awful. Usually I’m OK at it, but wow, I super sucked at it while streaming. It was sad and funny.
Now the one cool thing is that someone actually watched me play. That was probably part of what made me nervous, but this person was really cool and nice. I thanked them a ton for just watching. I hope to one day have many viewers, but just one is a great first step and gave me good streaming practice.
So, one day, I hope to actually make some money on this. In order to do that, certain requirements have to be met, including streaming for a certain numbers of days and hours. That will be a hopefully easy goal to meet. The more difficult one is getting enough followers. So, hey, if you have Twitch or want to check it out (it’s free, btw), my Twitch name is Frazzled_Daisy (https://www.twitch.tv/frazzled_daisy). So, just head on over there and click on the Follow button. You don’t have to actually watch me if you don’t want to, but to just get a follow would be super helpful. Or you can watch me make an idiot of myself, and then make fun of me! Yeehaw!
I am still figuring out exactly when I’m going to stream, as it’s best to have a consistent schedule. So, it’ll either be before work or after. I’m thinking after, as I won’t have to worry about losing track of time. And I think next time instead of playing a game that I apparently suck at, I’m going to pick one that I am at least sort of good at. I may also try out things other than playing games. Some folks do art, some folks cook, some folks just chat. So, I’ll have to brainstorm something else I can do to give my channel some variety.
I still have a lot of things to figure out, but I am so glad that I finally made the leap and got started. Until next time!
On a side note: I was playing PUBG the other day, which is definitely a game I will not be streaming because I super suck at it. This was me:
