Streaming Adventures You Should Know.
I havent written new thing into my journal recently. Things have gotten an interesting turn on Twitch and YouTube. I had chronicled the tough time I went through previously on my original entry. I has to spend a good sum of money to get the equipment. I can never get used to talking to myself on Camera though. There is a time I didnt know whether to keep doing it or not. Not seeing any returns for the work I was doing did not make things better. MTG is not a cheap game though. For a single 5-match league, I had to cough up eight dollars every day. I was paying much more than that. Because I wasnt ready to buy the digital cards, I opted for a rental service that set me back 35 dollars every month. This was draining financially. Even I knew I was doing well, I didnt know how to proceed. While this was happening, I was flying solo. I was getting new ideas the moment I set up this site. I had set my eyes on the bigger prize.
I wanted the site to be all about nerd culture. No one watched one game unless they are nuts about the game and that is why a stream was not my immediate option. Thus, I branched out to other games. However, this could not be done without securing a new computer. Given that I was creating niche websites before, the process of creating content for my new website was not all that new. Even so, I was eager to reach higher heights. I believed I could come up with the next Gizmodo. However, I would have to go with video content and not just article content. I need social channels for promoting this. It would be a tough break for just a single person but I felt like everything I have gone through before had prepared me for that. This is why I pushed forward. I was able to set up the website and come up with proper strategies about the content. I went ahead to create a Twitter account and kept my focus on that.
I have a friend called Jon who I used to bounce off the ideas. I thought it would be a great idea to record podcasts related to the work I was doing on the website. Jon agreed to co-host the podcast with me. This is the first person to help me with content creation. At the beginners, I was doing this on YouTube.
