When is PC-Addicts streaming LIVE? When is PC-Addicts holding giveaways? When is PC-Addicts publishing a new blog post article?
When PC-Addicts was created, we were streaming live a lot on Ustream. Not only did we stream video and audio, there was also a live chat. The chat was used for members and/or guests to interact with one another as well as myself (the host).
Over the years, I have to admit that I had lost the passion to stream as much as I used to. I could sit here and give you excuses (home remodeling, work stress, etc…), but in the end it doesn’t really matter.
What matters is that I am pumped up and ready to resurrect the PC-Addicts live stream and chat!
With the sudden passion of wanting to dive back into the live streams, there were a few hurddles I needed to get over first.
- Setup a schedule
- Figure out how to best communicate the schedule to everyone
- Figure out if we should have topics and/or agenda
1. Setup a Schedule
It was clear to me that in order to keep my sanity, I needed to figure out a schedule that would work best with my time constraints.
Balancing family, work, health, and the regular stuff has been tough for me in the past few years but I now feel I have good handle and balance on everything now.
Not only would a schedule help keep me on the right path, it would also help you, the viewers and/or participants, know when we will be live.
2. How to Get the Word Out?
Now that I have decided to set up a schedule, I needed a way to easily communicate that out to you all.
I added a link to the main navigation menu titled Schedule.
This will be the main event calendar for all PC-Addicts events including but not limited to:
- Live streams
- Giveaway contests (Past giveaway contests)
- Scheduled blog post articles
You can either subscribe to the calendar or visit the Schedule page frequently to stay up to date.
3. Topics and/or Agenda?
The way I want this to work (and it’s open for changes along the way – your suggestions are welcome) is by the following:
- Provide the following week’s topics and agenda in the event details of the calendar
- Provide a basic agenda for the event in the event details of the calendar
- Have a question or topic you would like to discuss during the live stream? Use the contact form on the site
Don’t be afraid to contact me with topic ideas. I welcome all feedback. We might not be able to cover all ideas all of the time, but I will do my best to squeeze them in.
To sum it up: I want this to be community driven.
If the days/times do not work out for you (since we have a lot of members / fans all over the world), hold tight because I am planning on setting up a poll of other times that might work for me in addition to Saturday nights. Maybe we can setup 2 nights every week.
Question for You
Are there any topics you would like to discuss? How about a particular issue? Maybe an idea for a creative contest of some type?
