#sleepygrammar all over this post:
Being a streamer is a form of entertainment.
You need to put your personality on front and center. Just zoning out and playing the game doesn't work. Think about it, if you're going to see someone perform, you want them to engage with you. Most streamers that do well interact with those watching and create a form of participation.
It's super easy to get tired from the interaction/performance element.
I thought playing the #videogames would be the hardest part. Nope! It's being both authentic as yourself while simultaneously being the most extroverted, outgoing version of yourself in a way that is interesting and accessible.
My head hurts just thinking about all the things #behindthescenes
I played a total of 6 hours of games today. I've never done that in my life.
If anything, #pigpilots is allowing/forcing me to do all those things I've never done before.
And I just saw that I got my first - absolute stranger – #follower on Twitch!!!
tl;dr Video games are easy. Performance is the tough/tiring/trying part.
