Streaming Adventures You Should Know.
I havent written new thing into my journal recently. My experiences on YouTube and Twitch has been interesting. Anyone who has gone through the original entry knows the tough times I have had. The budget for the equipment was not that small. However, I have to tell you that it does feel weird to do a recording where I am rambling on by myself. For a while I was confused on whether to go on with it or not. The fact that there was no return on investment didnt help. But you can also understand the expenses that come with MTG. 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. It was a huge financial commitment. For some time, I had no plan of action even when I was convinced the track I was on was great. This is at a time when I did not have anyone else in my team but me. When I started this website, new ideas started dawning on me. I was focusing on the bigger picture.
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. Even so, I figured that I would have to get a 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 was on the lane to come up with the next big thing after Gizmodo. However, I would have to go with video content and not just article content. I would have to use social channels in order to promote that. Even though the workload would be huge, I knew I was capable because of the things I had gone through before. This is why I pushed forward. I put up the site and planned the content. I started a Twitter account too and these are the things which held my attention.
I have a friend called Jon who I used to bounce off the ideas. I was interested in doing a podcast that would address things related to the site. Jon was ready to be the co-host. This is the first person to help me with content creation. At the beginners, I was doing this on YouTube.
