I’m dealing with a bedbug infestation! It is so annoying, but I did laundry today which got rid of any of the annoying pests that were on my blankets, pillow covers, and bedsheets. I’m gonna buy a new mattress and maybe a new bed next week and until then, I’m sleeping on the floor in my office (and going to pick up a sleeping mat tomorrow) so that I can sleep without being fed upon by those disgusting bugs!
I’ve got some good news for those who want to support my gaming channel on YouTube and Twitch on a regular basis (and who would appreciate being rewarded for doing so)! I’ve officially launched my Patreon page, so now you can choose to support me every month and be rewarded for doing so! The reward tiers are as follows:
- Tip Jar ($1) – Your name will be placed on a sign in Hero’s Tower.
- Architect ($25 min.) Same as Tip Jar, but also get to name a business tower in Victory City.
- Engineer ($100 min.) Same as Tip Jar, but also get to name a road in Victory City.
Names must be SFW friendly and I reserve the right to refuse any names I feel are inappropriate.
I’m considering also setting up a Discord server for my community of followers, and if so, Patreon supporters will be acknowledged on it with special ranks. 😉
Please consider taking a look at my Patreon page and consider supporting me today in my effort to bring family-friendly gaming videos and live-streams to the world.
WordPress has been updated to 5.1, the latest version of WordPress. From what I can tell, it won’t affect my sites at all as it’s just a polishing update to Gutenberg, the new editor (and I use the Classic Editor plugin at all of my sites). I’m just happy to keep my website up to date and safe from any exploits in the code.
I’ve been forgetting to post here the last week or so and I do apologize for that. I’ve been caught up in other things so much that I kept forgetting that I need to post to my blog two to three times a week. My city is off to a good start once again, and I’m happy at work so everything is good for me this evening.
I need to consider whether I should keep an updated version of my modpack at Swagnilla Ice as well as whether to start posting screenshots that are showing off the progress of Victory City. I already stream most of the work there to my Twitch channel even though very few people watch the building. I also release monthly update videos to my YouTube channel, but I think that a screenshot album might draw in more people to provide more feedback.
I’m glad that my blog is back up and running and that I can once again access cPanel. My blog was down for almost 6 hours today (and I have no clue why it happened), but hopefully, it won’t go down in the future. I’m not able to stream tonight, as I have less than two hours until I need to get ready and leave for work. I will, however, be working on my city for a bit tonight, and I’m thinking about setting up a stone brick and gravel factory. Gravel is not that common, but it does make flint in the crusher, so setting up a factory to grind cobblestone (that’s being auto-generated anyways) is a good idea as well as cooking the cobblestone into stone and then fashioning the stone into stone bricks for buildings. I’ll probably set up the machines first, including their connection to the network before I begin building the factory structure.
I’ve started my journey to becoming a member of the Catholic Church. I don’t know everything that’s in store for me, but I do know that this is the direction I feel led by the Spirit. When I attended my first Mass last Saturday, even though I was a little confused at the beginning, I felt a sense of peace sweep over me. When I attended my first Bible study there yesterday, I felt that sense of peace return. I look forward to what lies ahead on this journey for me.
I’m very close to being invited to become a Twitch Affiliate, but I need your help! I need an average of three viewers per stream on my channel to complete the requirements to be invited, but now I’m averaging less than one. Would you be willing to come and watch? You can just lurk in the channel, you don’t need to chat with me if you don’t want to (though I’d be happy to chat with you).
