I usually don’t stream on Wednesdays…

I usually don’t stream on Wednesday nights because I enjoy watching the Adults Only Minecraft live stream on YouTube those evenings. It’s always fun to watch and learn something new on that channel and to learn about various data packs and other stuff that they choose to run on their server for that season’s live stream.

I won’t be live streaming late at night anymore…

I won’t be live streaming late at night anymore unless it’s part of a stream that I started earlier in the day. It’s not worth the people who try to encourage me to kill myself while I’m streaming Minecraft or the other crazy people I’ve seen in my chat late at night. Besides, I just finished a five-hour stream and got one follower out of it, for four total gained this weekend. That’s nice, but I was hoping to pass the fifty I need as part of my push for affiliate status on Twitch. I’m also not getting the three concurrent viewers either, the other stat I need for affiliate status. Hopefully streaming earlier in the day will result in both of those getting accomplished, no matter what game I want to play that day.

I won’t be live streaming until Friday

I won’t be live streaming until Friday because I working to get an extra week ahead of when I schedule videos to be released to the public on my YouTube channel. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be too busy for me to create any content, so rather than falling behind, I am planning on taking the week off from creating videos for YouTube. I will probably relax and work on other projects that I’ve been putting off due to a lack of time except for Christmas Eve and Day which are already booked solid with events with family and church.

I’m close to 50 followers on Twitch!

Thanks to all the support I’ve been getting from the BSo7 community, I’m only seven followers away from my goal of 50 followers (what I need to apply for Twitch Affiliate status) by the end of the year! If you’re already following me on Twitch, thank you so much for your support. If you aren’t please consider doing so and enabling notifications – you will be then notified the next time I go live on Twitch! (Also thanks to hard work by myself, I’m back to a week ahead of my schedule for YouTube video releases.)

I’m no longer playing my own pack…

I’m no longer playing my pack, Peaceful Pack. Instead, I found two different modpacks that are centered around playing in Peaceful Mode of Minecraft that I’ll make series out of, and play myself. I may also get brave enough to face the monsters of the game, and start a Vanilla World, but don’t count on it any time soon. 😉 I also deleted the Village Architect episodes I had posted to my channel already as it’s a dead series without the same world to return to. Instead, I’ll reboot that series starting next Tuesday on one of the other packs. For tomorrow’s episode, I’ll record the thirtieth episode of Swagtown, my Banished Let’s Play series instead of a Minecraft-based episode like I had originally planned.

I decided to reboot my Village Architect series…

I decided to reboot my Village Architect series because the first place wasn’t good for long-term development. Not to mention that I was also getting tired of listening to the villager noises, but I also prefer more flat terrain when building structures. Yeah, in one of my worlds I built inside mountains, but they were on the edge of a flat forested plain where I had started building (and I didn’t feel like flattening entire mountains and so incorporated them into my builds).

In my world that I sometimes stream from, I’ve made some nice progress and have switched from cobblestone roads to stone brick ones as I have plenty of that material now (thanks to powering up and configuring a Material Stonework Factory to mass-produce it). I’m now focused on getting pigs and chickens autobred and slaughtered to produce their drops and essence for my iron farm (as the cow farm doesn’t produce enough for a decent speed of iron on it own). It will also make my old egg and feather farm obsolete, so I will be tearing it down after I transfer the chickens to the new farm. I’ve also created a place to enchant my stuff and a place to build the various vehicles.

I have an idea…

I have an idea for what I can do while I upload videos to YouTube. I can either play my games which don’t require internet access to play or I can work on my fan fiction. Yes, I can’t write them on the website, but nothing is stopping me from using my desktop applications! I have been wondering when I would find the time to write and here is an obvious solution.

I’m going to resume recording videos!

I’m going to resume recording videos! Last night and tonight I will be live streaming (and hopefully raising some money for the Movember Foundation), and starting Sunday afternoon, I will be recording, uploading, and scheduling the release of new episodes of my two current YouTube series: Swagtown and Village Architect. I’m also going to be working on moving my videos from a page on this website to a dedicated website called Swagnilla Ice (I’ll add a link to the sidebar when it’s ready for visitors!). Each video will be in its own dedicated post, with posts in the same series linked to one another.
