I've been thinking about shifting my streaming schedule to be a bit later in the evening. I've been considering this for a while and think that now is a good time since I've been away for quite a bit due to sickness. Let me know what you think about this idea - I'm thinking of either a midnight-6am Central stream, OR 3am - 9am Central stream. Be sure to tell me your thoughts!
Also, in case you haven't checked out my twitter or discord - WE GOT TWITCH AFFILIATED!
So what does that mean? It means that you can now cheer in my chat! Cheering allows people to buy a sort of twitch currency, or watch ads to get a few free "bits", as they're called. Each bit is worth 1 cent! This is a direct way of helping me and the channel out - and the purchase of bits is done through Amazon, so it's pretty dang safe! This means that if you're not able to donate or pay for bits, you can also voluntarily watch ads to be able to throw a few cents my way every now and then if you want to! Every little bit helps, and I'm super excited to be an affiliate! It's a really great step toward becoming a Twitch Partner!
In the future, Twitch has said that Affiliates will have one global emote, and possibly even low-tier subscription abilities!
I've also begun uploading time lapse videos to youtube every Wednesday and Saturday - as best I can, at least. These videos are pulled directly from my live stream, and I've been trying to put commentary to each one! If you have questions or topics that you'd like me to discuss in future videos, be sure to leave a comment either here, or on one of my youtube videos!
Lastly, I've been kind of in the process of updating the website, and updating graphics and such on Twitch. I'm trying to go a bit more professional, but still keep the whimsy and eccentricities of my current themes and such. I've also been reading and watching a number of podcasts and articles and classes on making your Twitch channel better, and just being a freelance artist in general. I'm hoping that by working on this I'll have a better idea of how to market myself, and will be able to better entertain you guys by being able to bring in more work so that I can buy fun new things to share on stream and such!
Thanks for reading, and I'll see you next update!
