Don’t be a one trick pony on strims

So here I come again, my friends. I, the great Sonik with a new rant about twitch and youtube. GASP

I know. Hold your gasping and joy. ( LOL ) I am kidding.

THIS IS AN OPINION!

So while being on Twitch.tv or Youtube, people tend to fall into the trap of playing one game for YouTube or Twitch.tv and mind you, there is nothing wrong if you enjoy doing one type of thing

And for the most part, if you are just doing the one type of game just for fun, on youtube or Twitchtv, that again is ok cause you are just doing something you love.

Now let get to WHY you should try to avoid doing that or not being a one trick pony

So Sonic Speedrunners, Twitch streamers, YouTubers. They fall into this trap a lot. I’m LOOKING AT YOU SONIC SPEEDRUNNERS

Some Speedrunners tend to stream 1 game. Sometimes they do other speed games but 50 % of the time, it’s the same game. Speedrun Insanity. God can’t save them.

Got off topic. So let’s say all you do is speedrun every day or when you get time. and you bring in the viewers. That is fine. You are starting to be seen as a speedrunner and most of your followers may /or will come to your stream.

Now Jimmy. You might be saying or thinking “Well I know this and being a one trick pony doesn’t sound”

Now say you take a break from speedrunning and you just want to play a game and chat with your followers. Well, Jimmy, they may come in to see you not speedrunning and tell you to have fun and they will stay for a few mins then just leave and you may bring in new viewers who could potentially be new followers.

It’s best to try to variety streamer and avoid making one game, the main focus of your channel but it’s up to you how you handle your channel.

Remember, it’s easy to fall into the trap. People will come for when you stream the series or game that made you into a one trick pony

If you care for viewers, then try to mix it up.  But this is twitch, anything can happen.

Now, of course, if you meet what’s below

  1. Being a Twitch Partner
  2. Having a good following on other social media
  3. Being a higher up on a site via have a mod status or higher
  4. Being an edgy Sonic Speedrunner
  5. Going to live events like Ex: AGDQ
  6. Join races for any games

At that point, you can stream whatever and be fine.

I don’t fall into this trap. I stream a lot of things

2016 Was a year I streamed many games. Look at the list below BOI.
