Fridays are now Follower Fridays on Twitch!

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:

  1. Subscribe to my channel on Twitch and I’ll add 30 minutes of play time.
  2. Follow me (or convince a friend to do so) and I’ll add 15 minutes of play time.
  3. 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.

God’s Promise in the Rainbow

12 Then God said, β€œI am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come. 13 I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. 14 When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds, 15 and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life. 16 When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth.” 17 Then God said to Noah, β€œYes, this rainbow is the sign of the covenant I am confirming with all the creatures on earth.” – Genesis 9:12-17

I’m working on relaunching Unlimited Fan Fiction

Today, I’m working on relaunching Unlimited Fan Fiction, and after I’m done doing that I’m considering doing a live stream for an hour or so as I didn’t do one yesterday (either before or after working at Wal-Mart). It’s a good day for staying inside as the weather outside isn’t very pleasant for outside activities.

I’ve got to set up fandoms, genres, forums, and ranks beside creating a home page, a community guidelines page, and a privacy policy for the new website before anyone can truly enjoy it. The privacy policy is vital considering the GDPR is now in effect in Europe and as I don’t discourage Europeans from joining, I have to abide by its provisions. If I want my sites to be successful, I need to follow the rules and guidelines.

I’d better get to work, so until the next time I post, take care! πŸ˜‰

I can’t stream Software Inc using Bebo…

I was planning on streaming some Software Inc, but due to the fact that Bebo wasn’t able to detect the game, I instead streamed more of my Surviving Mars game for my live stream today. I may stream more this evening, but I haven’t yet decided on that. I do want to play some modded Minecraft though, and probably will do some reading as well.

PlayerCrunch is almost ready for new members…

PlayerCrunch is almost ready for new members and when that is the case, I’ll be using it as my “sponsor” for my Twitch channel streams. Instead of adding things that I’m not ready for (because I can’t afford everything), instead, I’ll only be adding in features when I can add them fully. Yes, it means that the community may not have as many features as others, but it will run more smoothly (and new features will have more meaning).

I’m using a dual-monitor setup now…

I’m using a dual-monitor setup now for my streaming. It will allow me to see my Bebo control panel on the secondary monitor while I am also playing the game on my main monitor. In the control panel, I’ll be able to see Twitch chat and events, and control sound levels and the various scenes. Today’s the first run of this setup at 10 am, so come to Twitch and watch the stream and chat with me (if you like what you see, follow my channel there to be notified when I start streaming by email).

I’ve put off grocery shopping for tomorrow…

I have decided to put off grocery shopping until tomorrow morning despite my decision to get up early today to get it done before my live stream. It was an easy decision after I saw how little money I had left in my checking account, and needed to transfer some money from my savings to get everything on my shopping list. Add in the fact that it was almost 8:30 am when I made the decision and I start live streaming at 10 am on the days I stream (like today), and you can see where I needed to manage my time more efficiently.

Tomorrow is a day off from streaming (and it takes a day for the money to transfer between a savings account and a checking account) so I’ll have the time before work in the morning to go grocery shopping without having to rush. Yeah, I won’t have my yogurt or waffles for my breakfast tomorrow, but I can go without for one day. πŸ˜‰
