I’ve set up a poll on Twitter that will run for 48 hours from the time I launched it that asks if you want my channel on Twitch to focus on Minecraft only, or continue to stream lots of different games and not have a primary game. Please vote in it and let me know what your opinion is – thanks a lot!
I got my first tip today on the same day I got the same person following me on Twitch! Yeah, it’s just a dollar, but it’s the value that I was tipped and someone appreciated the work that I put into my live streams. Of course, no one voted on this week’s poll on Twitter, so I got to choose the game I wanted to play. I’m going to do another live stream this evening because I want to remake my tools (lost it first to a fall from a high place including an elevator block – a lot of work went into that – then to lava when I fell in) and I’m so happy over getting my first tip plus I’ll probably be playing this world a lot less after the CityCraft server goes live.
I’ve shut down Unlimited Fan Fiction, and this time that website will stay closed with me as the owner. (If you want the domain to run a fan fiction archive, contact me – I’d be happy to sell the domain to you.) It doesn’t jive anymore with the way I want to live my life anymore so it had to go.
On the other hand, I’m pleased to announce the soon opening of the Disciples of Jesus website. It is a free community for all believers, and it is non-denominational, so leave any denomination-related topics at the door, please. 😉 Besides the forums, it also will contain a link directory for Christian websites.
I’m also pleased to announce the soon opening (later in the week than Disciples of Jesus) of the CityCraft website. CityCraft will be a community focused on modded Minecraft (check the FAQs in the forums for the specific list of mods) and now I’d like to say that the community and myself are not affiliated or associated with Mojang or Microsoft in any way. This is just a free community and modded server for those who enjoy playing the game of Minecraft, though donations will be appreciated (and those who give will not get any in-game bonuses).
I’ve got to work this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon, then have the next three days off. I’m hoping to have the Disciples of Jesus website ready to go by the time I leave today, but it may not open until tomorrow. CityCraft should be done by Friday evening at the latest. 😉
I hope to see you around one of those communities or the next time I post here on my blog! 😉
Fridays are now Follower Fridays on my Twitch channel! Every Thursday evening (starting yesterday), I’ll post a tweet with a poll asking which of the four games you want me to see me play which will expire 5 minutes before the live stream starts on my channel. I’ll play the game that wins the poll for a minimum of two hours, but there are ways you can get me to play longer:
- Subscribe to my channel on Twitch and I’ll add 30 minutes of play time.
- Follow me (or convince a friend to do so) and I’ll add 15 minutes of play time.
- Tip bits or money via the link in my Twitch profile. For every $1 or 100 bits tipped, I’ll add 5 minutes of play time!
I’ll track the time (and events which add time) via the Bebo app (on my secondary monitor) which is what I use to stream my games to Twitch. When I reach the total time (2 hours + whatever my fans earned from subs, follows, bits, and donations) or 10 PM MT, I’ll end the live stream.
The diverse threats we face are increasingly cyber-based. Much of America’s most sensitive data is stored on computers. We are losing data, money, and ideas through cyber intrusions. This threatens innovation and, as citizens, we are also increasingly vulnerable to losing our personal information.
