Another full day of live-streaming through my iPhone 7 Plus.
I’ve been using Live Air Solo (iOS)
This weekend, I’ve streamed myself:
- preparing calls to action for the pending launch of my business,
- creating a short video presentation on the XIM APEX that I published on my YouTube channel,
- pulling away my bedding,
- digitizing documents to reduce the volume of paper in my home,
- playing the Final Fantasy VII Main Theme on piano,
- making my bed,
- and preparing Huel,
all punctuated by puffs on my e-cig, while maintaining interaction with audience members.
Live-streaming myself throughout the day probably isn’t doing me any favors at this point with respect to my efficiency. At times I catch myself sitting around, waiting for something to happen in chat, and then remind myself that my audience is waiting for me to bust a move.
The need to better organize my space grows more urgent. As I tread through my home, occasionally switching to the back camera to provide my audience with a more intimate look into the everyday life of yetieater, I blush at the multitude of items strewn about that bear my name and address.
The line between yetieater and my flesh and blood self barely ceases to exist.
After I became partnered with Binx, I used the partner tools to generate a 500 BinxCoin Token and a Spin2Win Token. I had an opportunity to give them away for interaction during my last feature, but I was drawing a mental blank, and I couldn’t come up with anything that I wished to ask the audience. In light of that, I’m dropping the 500 BinxCoin Token here:
The broadcast was cut short when my mother called, and I had half a mind to call it a day, but I ended by sharing a story about trying to help a depressed friend find his bearings again. I was reminded of the episode a couple of weeks ago by Cerbia, who had posted a comment on an old Trials of Osiris match.
I still haven’t pulled the trigger on applying for Twitch Affiliate status. I set YouTube to unlist archives of my livestreams a while back to force myself to go through the motions of trimming content prior to publishing it, but a combination of technical hiccups and laziness have thus far kept me from cutting through the accumulated mass of footage that is now residing on my hard drive. All I can think of as I consider that mess: is it worth it?
I remain convinced that viewers who wish to financially support my creative output through subscriptions will find it easy enough to do so through my Gamewisp channel. Until then, I suppose they will have to use their bits to cheer on someone else’s Twitch channel.
