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 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 will be live streaming to my Twitch channel tonight and tomorrow night at 11 PM and at 2 AM (both times are based in the America/Edmonton time zone). Each live stream will last for about two hours and that will be the schedule for my live streaming going forward. More likely than not, I will be streaming Minecraft – sometimes from a server called Chipping Blocks (a survival server on hard mode) and sometimes from a streamable game I’ve created for the Peaceful Pack I play through as a series on my YouTube channel.
I’ve added Environmental Tech to the Peaceful Pack. It’s a high-end tech mod that requires you to have at least acquired diamonds and gone to the Nether to start crafting the blocks in it. However, it has powerful mining and energy producing capabilities once you get into it. I would consider the Peaceful Pack with all the tech mods in it more of a tech modpack than a Vanilla+ one at this point.
I will be streaming on occasion to my Twitch channel, but only when the mood strikes me, and I will not be streaming Minecraft or the other game I am playing through at the moment on my YouTube channel. I am working on a new project today, but I may stream a game this afternoon if I get it done or get bored as it’s just data entry of categories that need to be completed before I can open Gate 90 as the web’s newest business directory.
I’ve launched my Patreon page as well as my own Discord server for my Twitch fans. I really want to be able to stream more often for my fans on Twitch and have decided that this is the best route for me to follow at this time. I’d also like to reach the three concurrent viewers and fifty (50) followers needed for affiliate status with Twitch.
I’ve already built Loyalty Hall in my single-player world of Survival City, and in this morning’s live stream will be adding my current Twitch followers to the Twitch hall there. I’d like to take this time once again to thank them for following me on Twitch and showing their support of my channel. The fact that I’m already a fifth of the way to the followers needed for affiliate status is huge IMHO!
I hope that if you enjoy watching me on Twitch that you will consider to support me on Patreon and/or Twitch by following me there as well. 😉
What is a blog?
Most people who are online should know what one is, but for those of you who are new to the internet, I’ll explain it in this post. The word blog comes from the phrase “web log” with web referring to the internet and the word log meaning a group of posts ordered by date. They can also be organized by categories and/or tags.
Why should I host my blog with The WhiteEagle’s Aerie?
Running your own blog means that you are responsible for everything – security, choosing the plugins, choosing the theme, updates, and everything else that comes with it. Here we take care of the security and updates, and can also help you if you run into issues with themes or plugins. It is also free for if you need up to 512 MB of storage for your uploaded media – most hosts start out at least $4.99/month or more (depending on the level of service and hosting you choose). You also have to put up with ads, but can remove them, increase the number of themes, plugins, and your storage for just C$5/month for our cheapest subscription.
Yes, you have to also abide by our rules, but even if you go the running your own blog unless you can run a server yourself, you have to abide by someone’s rules. Our rules are just common sense – no adult content (unless you can justify it as artistic and/or educational and not just titillating), no spam, and respecting the other members in the forums. The no adult content rule comes from our payment provider Paypal, which doesn’t allow adult-related transactions through its service.
