Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I learned a lot lately by reading some stuff on reddit and watching some newer, small streams that are growing quickly and learning what they do. I put a follower alert on my page so i can thank people for following. The guy I was watching thanks everyone and asks for follows so I think it's okay to do.

Kind of figuring out still what I want the channel to be but I'm very excited and really hope this last week's momentum continues.

J,

What does host mean in this context?

Do other twitch streamers stream your channel when they're not streaming or something?

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Yes, that's exactly what it is

Today's been awful game-wise. Most horrific beats of my life and i am not exaggerating. Even my ****ing internet cut out twice and it's never, ever done that. Beginning of the stream started out great but i quickly started tanking. I seem to have like 4-5 people very interested in the channel so i think i can use that.

The difference is that the online-notification doesn't go out to the followers of those streams. So it's only super useful if they stream first, then switch to hosting you.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

True, but even his auto hosts are netting me 400-600 viewers on his channel and like 30-100 will hop over to mine.

Yesterday was kind of a bad day. I wasnt playing or feeling well. Like 5-6 people hung around for a while though.

I have this worry that if I suck people will lose interest and it makes me more tilty. Trying to just focus on having fun but the last 3 days have been really kinda bad.

I can switch to focusing on "fun" decks to play which will give me an excuse to lose i guess.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Today was a lot better, I just went by feel and I have a few little "fanbois" already hahaha. They stuck around mostly all day but I've been averaging 4-7 viewers without a host.

I focused on learning the game because the ones most active in chat were brand new, so I showed them a little of Arena mode and made a free to play deck on a new server to see how it was starting from scratch. was pretty fun. they hung around for like, the entire 6 hours I was playing. lol. helps keep my mind off stuff.

I got some CBD oil and a vape pen to see if it would help my stomach. I can't tell if it is or not.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I shipped a 12 and 10 win today on stream in arena. Was such a rush ending an 8 hour stream with a 12 win. In arena, 12 wins is the max and it's very difficult to do because you're playing with essentially random cards.

I have a small, fervent core following now but people are coming and hanging out for 4-5 hours at a time. I think I have something started here.

One guy hung out all 8 hours yesterday and today. One guy has popped in and watches the VODS because I stream when he's asleep. I'd say there's about half a dozen of them now that tune in every time and participate really actively.

Stoked, feels good man

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Donations, and people can subscribe to your channel for a few dollars a month. Twitch get a cut of that so donations are usually better. There's also on site tipping called bits but I don't really know how those work. I believe you can also get ad revenue but almost everyone has ad blocker

what I got enable today was a subscriber button on my channel so if people want to subscribe they can for five dollars a month. They can also subscribe for free if they have Amazon prime

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

If you really get a lot of viewers you can also get sponsored by game related sites and hardware manufacturers and stuff. Or get payed for streaming a certain game.

Also you can put highlights of your stream on Youtube which can also get a ton of views for which Youtube will pay you.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Haven't really seen any growth in the last several days but I am getting pretty steady viewers so that's good.

My therapist session went pretty well yesterday. She really really wants me on SSRI's but she's not really a doctor. The actual doctor was reluctant to prescribe them to me.

I don't want to take them because of the sexual side effects but at this point will try anything. The psychiatrist thinks I have PTSD but that I am not bipolar, just have depression and general anxiety. I kind of dont like him because he's condescending and thinks I have a drinking problem (my therapist doesnt think I do) so the therapist found me a different one. She's also trying to find me a new stomach doctor.

She said she doesnt go to this much effort for all patients but that she believes in me. She said it's a crime that someone with my intelligence and compassion was not developed as a child, and that she thinks I have never had a real advocate before. I didnt know she felt that strongly about it and I've been dreading our sessions bc i feel like i am not making progress. She said she measures progress in way smaller scales than I do.

Every doctor i've been to is amazed at my grades and say that it is amazing I am as well adjusted as I am given everything that has happened and how I was raised. I dont feel well adjusted though I feel like a mess.

If it helps, most people feel that way about themselves to some degree or another.

I would also say that people who are really messed up think they are pretty normal. (Source: MLYLT)
