I LIKE JUMPING ON BANDWAGONS! JUMPING IS FUN!
I'm going to be starting my own LIVE show on blogTV.
It'll be every Monday & Friday at 10pm GMT / 5pm EST.
I'm not too sure how well the show will go down. I know some people hate when youtubers start doing blogtv shows.
I've decided that I'm going to make just one video for JohnnyDurham19 where I promote the new show, and after that, I don't want to upload any more blogtv videos. For some reason, people seem to get really angry when youtubers post up little videos saying that they're going live on blogtv. I can see why these videos are annoying. People subscribe to channels on youtube to see interesting, creative videos... not just to be notified that you're going to be streaming live on a completely separate website. I don't want to continually piss off my subscribers, so after the initial pimping of my show, I'm not going to make videos announcing that I'm going live.
I really do want the shows to go well though, and I'd like lots of people to come and enjoy the shows, so I'll probably twitter update / myspace bulletin whenever I go live.
I also might occasionally make a "I'm going live on blogTV" video to post on my PumpkinSplat channel if I ever have a particularly interesting show lined up, just to hopefully bump up the number of viewers. I'm not so worried about subscriber numbers on PumpkinSplat, seeing as it's just my second account which I use to post less-than-adaquete videos anyway... so if people hate me posting the blogTV announcement videos on PumpkinSplat, then they can always just unsubscribe from there, and hopefully still stay subscribed to my main channel :D
I just downloaded webcammax to use during my live shows, so that I can do cool things, like overlay text, play videos, show pictures, draw on my face (charlieissocoollike style). At the moment I just have the trial version which puts a stupid huge advert across the top of my broadcasting, so I might spring out and purchase the full version to get rid of it.
I'm a little apprehensive about actually doing the live shows. Outside of my youtube videos I'm generally quite shy and quiet around people I don't know... so broadcasting live to potentially hundreds of viewers is kind of daunting. I've done a few liveawesomeguys shows on Alan's blogTV channel, and I was pretty damn nervous whilst doing them... although the more I've done them, the more comfortable I've started to feel in front of my webcam... so I'm hoping that after a week or two of doing my own shows, it'll become much less stressful xD
I have a good idea of what I'm going to do for the first couple of shows, but after that I don't really have a plan... I'll have to try and think of interesting things to do and to talk about. If you have any ideas of what you'd like me to do in my shows, leave them in the comments of this blog! (unless your suggestion is going to be "LOL, I think you should just get naked, LOL". in that case, don't bother commenting :P)
sorry for epically long blog post, just wanted to get all that blogTV shizz off my mind!
Hope you'll stop by occasionally and watch my show! :D
