Happy Birthday Matt and Happy Canada Day!

First off! Happy happy birthday Matt! Also, Happy Canada Day!

I was talking to Matt about what you would like me to stream for his birthday and he requested Minecraft. When I heard Minecraft, I was like…uhhh I don’t play that, but that didn’t matter. I wanted to make Matt’s birthday special! I went ahead and got a server for us to play around with and opened it up to everyone to play.

When the stream started, I was excited about how many people wanted to play and we got a good 6 people to jump on, which was really cool. Early on, I realized that I was really bad at Minecraft. I was armed with an Essential Handbook for Minecraft, but it didn’t help much, lol!

Matt hooked it up with 255 HP and mostly everyone was watching out for me, like I was a baby. Overall it was a lot of fun and I hope to do more Minecraft and be useful next time.

This was also the night where a lot of people that redeemed their coins to have me play games they want me to play. It helps to play games your viewers would like to see!

Overall, I had such a great great time and I will leave you guys with this sweet sweet video of Matt’s little gift for me.

Streaming Tech

I updated my Intro and Outro scenes on XSplit and a lot of people commented positively on them. I did some research on 3DS streaming without a capture card. It primiarily focuses on videoing your actual 3DS externally and cropping the screens. I looks like a great option without having to pay $500 for a 3DS to enable me to stream those games. I will continue to do more research here.

Looking to build out WordPress tutorials

I wanted to add a new section on the website to help share the power of WordPress and how it can enable people to create their own websites with ease. I’m looking to make these in the near future. Let me know what are some of the things you’re looking to learn. :)
