These last couple days of streaming have been sublime. Seeing everyone come together and be part of the show has been just amazing. Keep at it Cult. We are going to make this stream explode together: I can’t do it alone.
Honestly I cannot stress how cool it is to see all of my followers show up at once. Some are there from the first month of streaming back in March 2015, others are from 2016 when fb_lurker was launched, and even others are new additions from 2017. It is really cool to see the stream come together, especially after the years spent working on it.
So far we are off to a really good start and if we keep it up the Cult is going to make it no problem. As I have been telling everyone we already have the numbers we need. We don’t need to use gimmick titles like “drunk stream” or “knife giveaway” and we certainly do not need to spam advertise.
We have real content at our stream. Not only via myself but also via the chat itself. You guys are awesome with the content you produce. Many people do not realize how hard it is to stream without a good chat. Some of you think I am so smart and that it is amazing how I can give a topical comments on a wide range of issues, and this is true I do have a talent for this, however this is not usually possible without the chat.
The chat gives me the topics to talk about. I am not always so enlightened as to be able to talk about something interesting on stream but when one of you in chat chimes in and gets a discussion started that is often how I begin one of my rants. So in essence, it’s your fault Cult. I blame you for the rants. Shoutout to Rants23.
For a long time I did not want to ask the Cult to actively support the stream by watching often and by leaving a tab open at all times even if they weren’t there because it seemed greedy and dishonest to me. You know people have their own lives, they can’t watch all the time, and second leaving their screen on is a dishonest view right?
Well, no. There is nothing wrong with asking the Cult to do this for me and I believe you all should. Here is my reasoning.
As stated before, this stream is authentic. No gimmicks. No giveaways. No sellout. No tits (I wish I had some). No spam.
Instead, we have real content. Good laughs, good conversations, and good friendship. This is rare on twitch. No, I am not the only streamer with a channel like this, there are many other great channels and streamers with honest streams and who put on a great show, but there are many that are far from that. And we all know this.
Now, because I do not do all these bullshit gimmicks, one because they suck, and two because I want to make a real show, I need your support. If I don’t have views coming in from click bait titles, I need to get views some other way. And I want to get them from the Cult. You guys love the show and I love your support. And your views. And I need them.
The way twitch works is simple. The more views a channel has, the higher it goes on the list of streamers for that channel type. The higher a channel is on the list the more traffic it gets and thus the more follows/views/subs/etc it gets. Viewership in twitch is exponential. If a channel has little to no views it goes nowhere and its stuck in twitch hell, if it has a lot of views it explodes. We have been in hell for a long time guys. But there is hope. We have the views to break out and ascend to twitch heaven. So let’s do this Cult.
By you coming in and showing your support, we can make it out and make something awesome happen.
Now, yes I am asking you all to work. And it’s going to be hard, but you are not alone. Before this I was the one that was alone. I’m the one spending money on rent for an office so I can keep streaming for you all. I’m the one driving a minimum of 1.5 hours to stream every day. I’m the one that often eats alone every day instead of with my family since I am stuck in town because I have to be at my office to stream. I can no longer stream at home, this is my ridiculous situation. Streaming is very inconvenient for me with my current wor situation and that is just unfortunately how it is. But that does not mean I am going to stop. You guys support me and I love doing this show for you. Without a doubt it is the most fun and enjoyable thing in my life. I mean that.
So when I ask for your help, please give it. I know that I cannot go anywhere without you all and this is why I am being honest with you and appealing to you all to watch. We can do it cult. And we will. I am not going to quit streaming. I will keep grinding. I will play new games. I will come up with fun content. All I ask is for your support. Let’s get it done.
You all said yesterday, make fb_lurker great again. I disagree.
MAKE THE CULT GREAT AGAIN.
